    Zimbabwe had just been dismissed for 286 in reply to South Africa's 600-3 declared. Andy Flower had scored 142. He was last man out, so as they were coming off he went over to Shaun Pollock and asked him if he was going to enforce the follow-on. Pollock laughed and said "Yes, of course."
    Flower smiled back and said "Good."
    He went out to bat again at 25-3 and proceeded to score 199*. What a player.

    Actually, you're right that it was slightly better...It was still pretty bad in the games at Telstra Dome though (at least on the Wednesday and Friday when I went). I had to restrain myself many times at those games...

    That's what you get for going at all. Well deserved.

    I know of people who have actually said they admire Brian Lara so much, they'd go along justto wach him score a duck. They changed their tune awfully quickly when it happened twice.

    If its true that he actually smiled ( picture a sinister smile), with some sort of inkling of things to come, thats so cool!

    Kevin Pietersen thundering Brett Lee baseball-style back past his ankles off a 95mph length ball - the single greatest cricket shot I've ever seen, the moment I knew I was witnessing the emergence of a truly special cricketer, and the moment Australia stopped believing they could win the Ashes.

    Brian Lara walking out to bat at Lord's for the last time in a Test - the entire crowd had risen to its feet almost before the previous guy got out. The first time I had ever been genuinely, completely and utterly in awe of someone.

    And the greatest of all - the moment I realised England had won the Ashes for the first time in my life. Unsurpassable.

    The semi final between Australia and the West Indies at Mohali in WC '96.

    The West Indians had been cruising to victory, forty-odd runs behind with 8 wickets and around 7 overs in hand. Then, some magic from Warne, Fleming and McGrath saw to it that they had crumbled to 9 down with 5 runs to get, and Richie Richardson stranded at the wrong end.

    Courtney Walsh waited nervously as Damien Fleming approached, awkwardly hanging his bat in front of the stumps like he was holding a stinky fish.

    His lips were moving - he looked to be mouthing "keep-it-together, keep-it-together", just before he was comprehensively bowled and the stumps went everywhere, and Australia booked an ill-fated place in the final.

    I don't think I've ever seen an occasion in my life (watching international cricket at least) when I've been so sure a wicket was going to fall before the ball was actually bowled. My friend and I, just from looking at Walsh, and then Fleming coming in, were screaming "He's gonna bowl him, he's gonna bowl him!"

    Bangladesh beating Australia this summer!

    So magical, so funny... just a great moment. I was playing at the time and people came rushing out saying that Bang had won! Fantastic.

    Yeup, that was magical and quite appropriate after he magically washed out their match against Eng.

    Venkatesh Prasad castling Amir Sohail in the 96'WC Quarter-final in Bangalore. The occasion, the state of play, Sohail hitting Prasad for 4 under the lights, and then openly gesturing at the Home-boy with his bat in the direction he would hit his next boundary....and getting clean bowled the very next delivery

    Akhtar Sending Both SRT & RD back in pavllion(@ Edens) in consecutive balls. That was a magical spell that turned the game in favor of pak.
