Marcia Hines did a terrific job singing the national anthem at the SCG Opening Series but then made this mistake on Twitter.  She confused former Australian Cricket captain Ian Chappell (pictured) with former English Captain Tony Greig (deceased in 2012) it went viral on Twitter.  Always know who you are tweeting about.
