    NZ v West Indies, Hamilton, 1999 (scorecard here)

    Incredible comeback. Loved every minute of that test apart from WI's 276 run opening partnership.

    That was in incredible turn around to a test match. I remember being depressed after day 1 expecting W.I to score 600.

    One of the best one-dayers i saw was 1996 Australia vs. West Indies at the SCG. Last ball, Harper to Bevan, 4 to win it... great game.

    What I've never been able to help wondering is... what would have happened had Fleming caught Hussain?
    Or, possibly more enticing, what'd have happened had Astle caught Thorpe?
    Still - for once I'm not complaining too much.
    Anything that changed what happened with the Astle 222 is something I'd never, ever wish for.

    Yes amazing to think Astle's 222 still wasn't quite enough to make up for his miss of Thorpe.

    Hussian innings in the first innings when the ball was seaming around was one of the best i've seen

    I think most of the tests here at Chennai have been memorable for one reason or the other.
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    Im 16 to

    India vs. New Zealand
    NZ - 199
    IND - 200/9

    1 ball remaining
    1 run needed
    1 wicket needed
    4 wickets had just fallen in quick succesion

    That was a classic

    The only time ever that India won by One wicket, if I'm not mistaken...

    Watching England bowl west indies out for 54 at lords was pretty special and an important moment in Englands recent history

    The 54 at Lordís was special, but from an English point of view, Iíd take Headingly of 2000 over Lordís of 2000.

    I loved the Nz vs england test at christchurch as well even though we lost.
    I can't pick a favourite at the moment as there are many.

    Same with odi's.
    But here are some.

    All 4 VB series matches NZ vs australia in 2001 (the one we lost was probably the best, amazing from bevan but we still made the final)

    NZ vs sa In Vb series 2001 (the one where cairns got that superb 100

    Nz Vs australia World cup 2003, bond's 6 wickets was somethign else, amazing we stilll lost by 100 runs.

    NZ Vs southafrica, the match where klusener needed 4 to win off the last ball, nash bowled a full toss and he hit a six, I was so angry at nash for a while.

    NZ vs southafrica in 1997/98 vb series possibly the best of the lot. This was nash's comeback match.
    Sa got 300 I think. Nz were 95/5. Then parore played a stunning quick 50. cairns got 60 odd. Nash atted brilliantly. 2 balls left 7 runs to win. Nash hits the most extrodinary shot by almost sweeping pollock, then is it a 4 or 6? huge controversy, they decide its a 4. 3 to win off last ball Nash gets caught in the deep and nz lose.
    Amazing match.



    Many more matches, I'll post more tommorow, to be honest I have seen more memorable odi's than tests.
