    Biggest cricket moment when you've been at the ground

    I would have to say the biggest/most historic moments that I've seen when I have actually been at the ground are:
    1. Mike Atherton's 185* at the Wanderers in 1995/1996
    2. Jack Russel's 11th catch to break the world record in the same game
    3. Hansie Cronje's 50 off 31 balls against SL in 1998 at Centurion, when Hansie took Murali apart to belt SA to a six-wicket win after being in trouble at 100 odd for three, chasing about 250
    4. Adam Gilchrist's 200 (at the time the quickest double century ever) at the Wanderers in 2002
    That's about it I think. How about you guys...

    I'm only 17 and haven't had the chance to get to many games, but I was at Lord's last year for both Brian Lara's last innings at Lord's, and Michael Vaughan's second hundred of the match. Special moments, especially the ovation Lara got.

    Saw Gibbs' 183 at the Oval in '03 too - not a particularly special moment, but an awesome innings.

    Was at the oval in '03 on the final day when it was Stewart's final test match and he got carried on a lap of honour, pretty special. Watching bickers tear through the saffies was pretty good as well.

    Third day of Lord's test against Aus in 2001, when England broke the record for the number of dropped catches in a session. Gilchrist was the main beneficiary, so it was all very entertaining though.

    Not under any circumstances can that session - those two Test-matches, indeed - be described as anything other than dilapidated.
    Terrible batting from Gilchrist and the rest, even worse fielding from England - some of the worst cricket ever, and something I hope to God I never, ever see again, especially in an Ashes.

    Hmm... in my 2 days attendance at Test-cricket, the biggest moments were...
    Graeme Hick seemingly ascertaining his Ashes tour with a final-Test-of-summer century against Sri Lanka, and,
    Andrew Flintoff overstepping the crease, and probably costing the Test-match because the ball would have got Gary Kirsten out had it been legit. And Kirsten played the decisive innings of the match - then another one in the second-innings.

    Gilchrist's cyclonic hundred during this year's Sydney Test will do me just fine.

    Wow, you've had some good cricket watching Marius!

    Mine

    1) Elliot's demolition of Somerset in the 2002 (?) C&G final at Lords
    2) Allan Donald bowling at Old Trafford on the final day of the 1998 test match... Guess what I was doing when he was bowling at Fraser and Croft in the amazing last stand? I was next to the airport runway oogling at the planes coming in , listening on the radio..

    My only other day of test cricket was watching the rain come down at Trent Bridge against the Zimbos.. Nearly got killed when a lorry overturned coming towards us and forced us into a ditch.. Decided to watch tests on the TV, less risky
    Being a Somerset fan, I haven't watched much quality live cricket.. Im more interested in the photos I capture anyway

    I was at that game too; third day for me tho. Very sunny for May & I got quite badly burnt, despite the factor 15!

    I guess (grudgingly) its Murali's 16 wickets @ The Oval in 98 for me.

    Mine's a non-international match but very special to a SA fan such as myself.

    I was at the ground in 1996 when SA won it's first Sheffield Shield in 15 years with Peter McIntyre and Shane George (last-wicket pair) held on for an hour to draw the match but win the Shield for SA. It was an amazing moment watchign 15000 people run onto the ground.
