    The only one I own is - The battle for the tasman - 25 years of AUS vs. NZ in ODI cricket. All I can say is that it has 6 matches on it and the underarm incident Cant say its great although it does show some interesting matches from the beige years. Unfortunately it needs a couple more matches on it and more modern games and some more NZ victories. Obviously made in Aus means there is a bit of Aus dominance in it which is a reflection of the times but yeah.

    There does not seem to be much of a cricket selection in NZ. The other choice I had was chappell-hadlee highlights 2006 but we all know that was a farce it was a whitewash because it was Aus B team. The other options is legends of cricket which I was very tempted to get but was $99.99 and a bit too pricy for mine.

    There are some great DVDs available in Australia right now. I would really like to purchase the following:

    Calypso Summer
    529 minutes of coverage from the 1960-61 series!
    Ashes Glory (2006-07 Ashes series)
    Cricket Archives
    Gilchrist - Best of the Best
    The Australian Cricket collection which Pasag mentioned earlier

    There is other stuff too like -

    Bradman, Bodyline, Bradman audio book

    Any idea how I might be able to get the stuff delivered to India? Also, if any Aussie or Indian origin Aussies living in Australia happen to come to India in the future, I would highly appreciate if you could buy the cricket DVDs for me (which I would pay for of course).

    Any other online shops to buy DVDs from?

    BTW DVDs I purchased recently:

    - Australia v South Africa 434 game - it is a 3 disk set. First Disk has highlights of the entire ODI series including T20. Disk 2 and 3 contain ball by ball of the entire game! Great DVD.

    - India in Pakistan 2004 - ODI and Test series - Great series both, particularly the test series - a must for Indian fans.

    - Brian Lara 400 DVD - Fair compilation from the Sky team.

    - World Cup 1999 - okay. Want more indepth coverages than what was done in the DVD but then I do not expect too much from world cup review DVDs. One of the best world cups for sure.

    I am looking for anyone that taped the 1978/79 Australia v England highlights broadcast in Australia last Xmas........Highlights from ALL tests were shown!!
    If there is a Tom Moody (NOT the ex-Test player) viewing this, i'd love it if he could contact me as I've bought stuff from him previously

    I think you'll be very unlucky. I can't see any Australians recording a 5-1 defeat of their Third XI for prosperity. I'm amazed it was broadcast in Australia.

    I loved the highlights of the 438 match on the opening disc, with the players talking us through it and balling their eyes out with us. Truly a day I shall never forget.

    - World Cup 1999 - okay. Want more indepth coverages than what was done in the DVD but then I do not expect too much from world cup review DVDs. One of the best world cups for sure.
    Being a South African, I don't see myself ever forking out the funds for that one. Another tearful day that I shall never forget.

    CWers,

    I am looking to build my cricket DVD collection. Can someone suggest me some classics? ( Thanks to Rob Moody for giving us nearly everything on his YT channel though )

    I have the following in my mind:

    Legends of Cricket ( Amazon - UK )
    Ashes 2005 ( Amazon - UK )
    Lara's 400 ( Amazon - UK )
    History of Cricket ( Amazon - UK ) Is this worth it?
    Legends from All countries - total 6 different ones ( Sky - UK )
    Nasser Hussain - The real story ( Sky - UK )
    ESPN's Legends of Cricket ( eBay )

    I am also looking for:

    Bradman centenary collection
    Benaud to Border
    Cricket in the 70s
    Pecker's World Series

    Please add some more names. I have families in UK so I can easily get it from UK or India.

    Thank you

    You could be in luck?

    And let's face it - had they won the thing, no-one in England could have been blamed. I've said it several times, but I've never, ever seen the ball hit like Astle did that day. Never seen anyone come close, in fact.

    Man, what I'd give for that innings on DVD... that match, in fact (highlights, obviously).


    Hello Richard, only just come across this. I have about 1hr highlights of this whole match on dvd, plus extended highlights of the Thorpe/Flintoff partnership, albeit only up to Freddie being on 129* ie tea interval that day? Would you be interested in it? Or other matches? my email is delmeisterlegendxxx7@gmail.com.

    cheers

    I don't mind buying historical DVDs and stuff where greats give opinions while it contains great rare footages from matches as well or well made DVDs of tests matches/series. I recommend ESPN's legends of cricket DVD. I have seen a few shows via youtube of some of the legends and they are well pieced up. I think Jono has that one (Jono also has a good assortment of DVDs and he will be able to give some good recommendations I reckon). The India-Pakistan 98 series was excellent and Jono linked to a site where it can be bought and I recommend you to buy that if you can as well.

    I do think that there has been a lack of quality DVDs where cricket is concerned over all and there is great room for exploitation in this field. Hopefully we will see a bit of improvement in some years.

Yes, as an England fan, there were some dire moments, but I can't wait to see the OT test, day 5 at Headingley, KP's 142 V Murali etc. I eagerly await the delivery of these two DVDs.

    What Cricket DVDs do y'all own? My collection is not great, tbh I haven't been buying DVDs for long. All I have IIRC are the following:

    Botham's Ashes - The Miracle of Headingley 81
    The Greatest Test - England's Victory at Edgbaston
    The Greatest Series - Ashes 05
    Cape Crusaders - South Africa 1 England 2 (with bonus disc of ODI series, which is dire except for KP's tons)

    Er, I reckon that's it. Loadsa stuff I need to get, including my desperate desire for India V Australia 01. So, what are the best DVDs out there, not just as an England fan, but as a Cricket fan, and do you lot bother with them much?
