    Good call.

    Another massively underrated performance is Ashley Giles' batting in that match. Especially his 2nd innings. He came in at 9, being 200 runs ahead with 50+ overs left in the day. Not a bad moment to make your career best score.
    Madness. Exhilarating. Magical. Netherlands have crossed the line in an unbelievable 13.5 overs.
    It's like watching a Gayle from each end. And when one Gayle gets out.. Another Gayle comes in...

    Good call. Probably one of the most under-appreciated tons of recent times given KP's heroics on day 5 but where England would've been without Strauss' ton, particularly given the position Australia had gotten themselves into before light-related shenanigans on day 4, doesn't bear thinking about.

    2010-11 was won with 517-1. The sight of the empty Gabba was tremendous.

    Barring Mitch going godmode at Perth they were never even close.

    I still remember waking up to that scoreline. Absolutely hilarious.

    Yep, but i think an empty MCG after tea on boxing day tops it
