    What noone remembers this innings? Jones belted 210 in 530 minutes, vomited several times and is one of the greatest moments in Test history, and you don't want to acknowledge it happened? my lord

    Reports are that he was batting with allan border just after he made his 100 and deano said to AB: im too crook mate ive gotta stop.... to which AB said: righto.. tell em to get a bloody queesnlander out here then!!..... so not wanting to look weak in front of the skipper he batted on and went on to score 210... In a recent book about steve waugh it talks about this

    Yep - Border's behaviour was disgraceful and wasn't far from costing Jones his life.
    All worth it for a game of cricket, ain't it?
    Least he had the decency to apologise for it.

    some people have a go at Dean Jones because he mentioned that innings in madras quite a few times during his commentary stint in the recent Aus v India series.

    i cant blame him though, an awesome effort from the man Border called "a weak victorian"

    According to Border he said that as a joke not expecting Jones to actually listen to him. Allan Border was a hard man and as tough a cricketer as there ever was but I think he would have seen quite clearly what was happening to Jones and doubt he would have actually meant what he said. What I've read suggests this anyway.

    i dont think it was too hard for him to send jones back to the dressing room after saying that.
    Tendulkar = the most overated player EVER!!
    Beckham = the most overated footballer EVER!!
    Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!

    I saw Border interviewed about this on the 'cricket in the eighties' series. Rather than being a joke he said it to fire up Jones. Border said he underestimated how ill Jones was and now regrets it.

    I urinate several times a day, and I don't begrudge anyone for it! I seem to remember him saying he urinated involuntarily during the innings.

    Amazing stuff, but another question I want answered is whether there are many photos or even video footage of this Test match?
