I was in Cardiff in 2009. I’d bought tickets for the fifth day and drove down from London with my dad. The game was going away from England and we thought Australia would wrap it up quickly. The Aussies in the crowd were full of it but Collingwood was superb and the chants got more and more subdued. Monty tried to push for a run but Australia couldn’t break through. Absolutely brilliant day.
Oh dear. Someone’s in trouble. Whoever wrote this article has forgotten the golden rule of BBC journalism of the past decade or more. You must always have a token nomination/s based unrepentantly on grounds is race and equality.So, given this unbending law, I ask how on earth Basil Ds 160 and a one or numerous women’s match didn’t slip in there is a proper balls up.
You forgot Jack Russell
I never saw half of these but the of the one's i did see the best test was the 2 run win. However the most amazing thing i have seen is Broad's 8-15
Re: 128. It wasn't as remarkable as many people think because Australia had already won the series & they lost their captain Don Bradman to a broken leg early on. This must have had an effect on them. Len Hutton who scored 364 was a tremendous batsman who was helped by the conditions at The Oval. Without Bradman & faced with that total they lost heavily.
and 903 declared v the cons in the 1930'! Remarkable!!!!!!
Botham, Broad, Freddie all sticking it to the cons.Beautiful.Love test cricket!
Growing up in the 80s Botham's Ashes were a highlight but the 2005 one after so long finally regaining the AShes was special. Not comfortable with the Atherton not walking Test being in there. Batsman not walking has always been part of Cricket of course but not sure we should be applauding it.
Melbourne 82/83 Big Norm smote them
Come on! What about the 2nd Test vs. South Africa at Johannesburg in 1995 and Mike Atherton's incredible defesnive innings of 185 n.o. to save the test. No debate.
Some great matches here. My favourite day of test cricket is the 5th day of the old Trafford test in 2005. That really did have it all.
Agree with Gooch's 154 at headingley in 1991 was there on the final day when we bowled out the windies cheaply to win our 1st home match against them in 22 years.. Do not agree with his 333 against india though as it was a one sided match against a poor indian side.
