    So shattered at the lack of "Boycott's glorious back-foot cover-drive off Pascoe to the boundary to get off the mark in his first Test back in 1977" from you TBH.

    Sorry old chap. We should always open the bowling wit Max Walker and Tony Dodemaide, with handbags at 10 paces. Then at tea we'll have an iced tea and mints, washed down with lashings of hot fusareum, or however it's spelt.

    That series was great largely because many thought Lillee was washed up and Thommo was unheralded.

    Would rate Steve's Waugh's ton at Sydney more highly had I not seen the DVD 'One Perfect Day'. Somehow, after watching it, I wish Waugh's knock hadn't happened at all.

    Didn't see it tbh. Not that I was very pro-Boycs at that moment in time, being less than overwhelmed that he'd finally deigned to make himself available for the national side. Granted I was rather more grateful a couple of hundreds later with Ashes in the bag as a result.

    Must be 2005! Since the BBC stopped sending cricket into my Dutch living room, I stopped watching cricket. The 2005 series got me back. As a neutral, I had no choice but to support England.

    The best moment were Flintoff's over at Edgbaston and the last day at Old Trafford. I'm still convinced that was were the the Aussies lost it. The great Aussie team with Langer/Hayden/Warne/McGrath/Gilchrist cheering like they had won a series, whereas they had drawn a test. That moment meant that England had Australia by the throat.

    It has to be the partnership between the Waugh brothers in the 5th Test: Australia v England at Sydney, Jan 2-5, 1999 | Cricket Scorecard | Cricinfo.com. I drank 6 lemonade pops during that partnership.
    Inappropriate signature.

    Padding out of the DVD with interviews made it painful to watch. Great knock and all but the way they were talking, Aus won the match with Steve Waugh doing it single-handedly. Worst cricket DVD.

    Coming to dislike an innings because of poor-quality presentation of a highlights-package DVD - ITSTL.

    I remember that Test significantly because of Slater making a century despite every other batsman (barring Mark Waugh) failing to reach double figures. Classic.

    Geraint's catch after Strauss's fumble at OT was special hey. A CW legend was born right then
