    Best ODI and Test matches you've seen

    What are the best ODI and Test matches you've seen:

    ODI: Australia vs. South Africa - 1999 World Cup Semi Final @ Edgbaston
    (Hon. mentions come later...)

    Tests: England vs. Australia - 2005 Ashes 2nd Test @ Edgbaston
    Hon:
    -India vs. Australia - 2nd test 2001
    -West Indies vs. Australia - 4th test 1993 @ Adelaide


    It's weird. It's like you need Australia in a match and losing for it to be great. I could have mentioned Botham's match at Headingley from 1981 as well. I'd rather do some study before the ODI list... only one stodd out a lot. However, there's some Tendulkar performances from 1998 tha'd rock. Pakistan vs. India from last year in one match where Afridi made a quick century might be a contender too.

    I missed the edgbaston test because i was on holiday
    so i personally think that the utter mess England made in trying to win the Old Trafford test made that exciting...
    England vs West Indies in 2000(i think) bowling WI out for a ridiculous score to turn the match around...
    I think Headingly 1981 deserves to be included purely for the fact two men decided they could actually win the match....Botham's batting and Willis' bowling.

    ODI - Champions Trophy 2004 final must be close. The NatWest Series tie this summer wasn't bad, either.

    Obviously neither knock off AD's leaden feet, but they're top tens.

    Pakistan vs India 1998/1999 when Afridi hit a blistering 141. India needing 280 to win were 250-5 and somehow managed to lose.

    The rifles....

    Test Match

    Edgbaston 05 England V Australia - Well, what else is there left to say? The game to end all games, Breathtaking, pulsating, heart in mouth cricket not seen for a while.

    West Indies 04 England V Windies - It was THE Test which got me interested in cricket, Harmison was phenomanal, and wickets never stopped falling 7-12, thats nothing short of incredible is it?

    ODI

    Well maybe not so good for the bangledeshi's, but trent bridge 05 England V Bangledesh. England posted their highest ever ODI Total, it was just relentlessm brutal batting, Struass made 168, Ashraful posted 90 odd for the bengalis, and also collingwood took 6-31 and became the first ever player in One Day international historyto score 100+ and take 6 wickets

    Aus v England 98/99 MCG. We were still in with a sniff of drawing the ashes and I'll never forget that morning, Ramps catch to dismiss Langer is still one of the greatest I have ever seen. Will never forget Mullally smacking a couple of fours of Mcgrath and Gough yorking Macgill at the end.

    England v Aus 97 the Oval. It was at the Oval, series over and a real turner if I remember but still, it was Tuffers at his occasional inspirational best taking 11 wickets.
