    I think the ball I was referring to was MSK Prasad bowled by Warne at the Adelaide Oval in 1999.

    Does anyone know where I can get a tape/dvd of this game or series highlights?

    Pretty much his whole spell in the '99 WC semi-final was awesome. The gibbs one was good but the one to Kallis where he took the pace off was also awesome, esp in the context of the game.

    Other than that...Off the top of my head.

    1- The Gatting ball.
    2- Todays Strauss.
    3- Gooch bowled behind his legs in the same game as Gatting I think.
    4 -The Gibbs world cup 99 ball.
    5- When he bowled a Pakistani, actually through his legs about 10 years ago I think now.
    6- The Richie Richardson classic flipper.
    7- Chanderpaul bowled out of the rough in Australia.

    What others spring to mind?
    you can add

    8. Laxman last year
    9. Vaas in Colombo last year
    10. Tendulkar in Chennai 98 in the 1st innings where he had the great man caught at slip with a classic leg-break.

    Favourite memory of Warne was during last WC.

    Turns up to Crown Casino in flash sports car, tosses keys to valet, and engages drunken punters in taxi line in banter.

    Virtually anyone else on drugs charges would've been in hibernation.

    I can't believe no-one has mentioned that ball he got Robin Smith with in 1993. Oh I know why, it was about two overs AFTER the Gatting ball; everyone was still in shock.

    But yeah, that's got to be in his top 5. Smith wasn't the best player of spin (especially Warnie) but he did very well to hit that edge that one to slip. Absolutely brilliant ball and a great follow-up to the Gatting ball.

    Does anyone know where I can get a tape/dvd of this game or series highlights?
    I've got it. It's definitely available if you look around. The whole tape was really good, actually.

    Trying to reach his century by hitting Vettori for six and being caught by Richardson, who gave the crowd a nice little bow. I was lovin' it.

    People have got to be joking if they rate his big turning leg breaks as his greatest deliveries (ie the Chanderpaul ball; the Gatting ball etc). They are just leg breaks - they don't really involve any deception. Rather, I think you have to look at where he did something different to just a normal leg break- where he actually deceived a batsman. To that end, I think his greatest delivery was his 300th Test wicket - his wrong un, delivered around the wicket, to bowl Jacques Kallis in January 1998. Deceived a very accomplished batsman, with a delivery out of the ordinary. What a champion.....er... champion cricketer.

    The one that bowled H Marshall was impressive.

    Certainly what I was thinking. Had he stayed where he was he would have been in a good position to play the ball.

    Interestingly enough having a read in Sobers autobiography his method of playing spin (and the ones he faced weren't exactly hopeless) was to go back and always use his bat and play off the back foot and never leave the crease. It worked for him though - considering his record in India.

    I would have loved to see him face Warne.

    I second aussie's inclusion of the Vaas one last year, assuming it's the ball I am thinking of... in fact the last hour of that innings was just incredible. Late on the fifth day of the vital second test, Sri Lanka chasing 352 to win. A century to Jayasuria and some support from the middle order have got Sri Lanka on top, and with Dilshan and Vaas at the crease the target is down to 80 with four wickets in hand. First, Warne produces one of his greatest leg-spinners to completely beat Dilshan and bowl him for 42, putting Australia back on top. Vaas flew into the bowlers though, and added 47 with Lokuarachchi for the 8th wicket, to put Sri Lanka in sight of a series levelling victory. Warne bowled a great over to Vaas with just 30 odd needed to win, stopping after each ball to consult with Ponting, changing the field constantly and slowing things down and disrupting Vaas' momentum. He beats the bat to finish an over, and Ponting brings Gillespie on at the other end for Macgill, who bowls another good over. Warne returns to the same tactics the next over, varying his line and length and giving Vaas nothing to hit, then he throws one right up, Vaas' eyes light up, he races down the wicket and smashes it straight down the throat of Langer at deep midwicket. On its own it wasn't a great ball, but the mindgames leading up to the dismissal were classic Warne, and as it happened Gillespie removed Zoysa in the next over and Warne picked up Lokuarachchi after a Murali boundary to give Australia a 27 run win, and a series victory. One of my favourite test memories as an Australian fan.

    Aside from that, all the usual ones. All of both his ODI spells in the 99 and 96 world cup semi finals, where he single handedly turned both games with inspire middle-over spells, the Gatting ball, the Gibbs ball, the Chanderpaul ball, the Richardson flipper, Laxman last October, Basit Ali off the last ball of the day through his legs, and Strauss in the final over of the day yesterday. There's plenty more too.

    To be fair Faaip, Vaas going absolutely brain dead did help. No doubt brilliant bowing by Warney, but with so little runs left to win, why he'd do that after earlier being dropped by Symonds is beyond me. I couldn't believe it.

    As someone has already said, Warne's spell in the 99 WC Semi-Final against SA was amazing. Gibbs and Kallis' wickets were superb.

    Yeah, but I think his braindead behaviour was Warne's doing in many respects, he has always managed to bring out the worst in batsmen.

    Yeah you've got a point there. I did want to throw my shoe at Vaas though, because that cost SL the match (and obviously the series) and I really wanted to see a 3rd test to decide the series.
