    I don't understand why. It was a fantastic performance from Laxman and Dravid. Even the most stringent Aussie fan has to appreciate that.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    My statement doesn't mean i undervalue the greatness of the performance, its just the circumstances that surrounded it, i.e i was 12 years old, my fanatacism for the game was at its peak so was belief that Australia couldn't be beaten (given Australia were in the 16 game streak) so for me to wake up from 4:00 in the morning 2 midday on consecutive days, missing half a day @ school & watch those two blokes bat out that entire day & Australia get bowled in the other was at the time as bad as losing yourgirlfriend yo.

    But as i've gotten older & that fanatic behaviour died out i definately, do respect how good that performance was but that effect won't go away. So in this case had give the tied test the nod.

    Having a tough time deciding between the two. Would've voted for either one of Barbados or Hobart had they made it in, so I'll go for my trend of voting for superb knocks against superb attacks and vote VVS.

    Two worhty finalists to round off a great battle (I bet you no one does "Battle of the ODIs") but I vote - by the margin that England won the 2005 Edgbaston Test - for the Tied test.
    Ian Botham, Freddie Flintoff, Kevin Pietersen, Brian Laudrup, Gazza and Daniela Hantuchova....a fan of you all FOREVER!!!
    Can't wait to see Australia field a crap leg-spinner like Hollland or Hohns again.....
    Congratulations to Daniela Hantuchova on her 3rd career title....
    Bob Woolmer 1948-2007..farewell to the best coach England never had...
    Arise Sir Beefy....

    Right, no votes for the past ten hours, so, the rearguard comeback to end the winning streak triumphs, and the 2000-01 Test between Australia and India is officially the best Test of the 36 nominated.



    Thanks for voting.
