    The greatest match you've attended

    Hi everyone, I was on the forums and then I was curious has anyone here ever witnessed a truly fantastic cricket match? (Test, One day international, county, 20/20) Any comments would be apreciated.

    Graeme Hick and Gary Kirsten's centuries at The Oval and Headingley in 1998 and 2003.

    At least, they were the most memorable features of said days.

    Predictable from me given my atrocious record of seeing NZ get absolutely walloped in most matches I go to, but this was an amazing match and I promise I'd still think so even if we'd lost. Hayden's innings was extraordinary.

    The CDM's already mentioned the 2005 Old Trafford Ashes Test. That's up there, but Murali taking 7 in each innings at Southport also left a lasting impression.

    Hmm, greatest in terms of closeness would be this one:

    I suppose mine was my first game due to the teams/players involved, the historical significance and my own involvement.

    http://www.cricinfo.com/db/ARCHIVE/1...10JUN1991.html

    Firstly it was Englands first test win against the West Indies at home since 1969. A huge monkey to get off Englands back and was a big deal.

    Ramprakash and Hick made their Test debuts and it was an exciting time to watch what we believed to be the future debut in front of us.

    There were quality players everywhere you looked GA Gooch, MA Atherton, GA Hick, AJ Lamb, MR Ramprakash, RA Smith, RC Russell, DL Haynes, RB Richardson, CL Hooper, IVA Richards, PJL Dujon, MD Marshall, CEL Ambrose, CA Walsh, BP Patterson.

    It was a stacked Test match in terms of players.

    Also I celebrated my 15th birthday during the Test and it felt like a honour to be that young and do 'Test Match Duty' ie Bowling with the bowlers at the batsmen in the nets before play for both England and WI, catching with the baseball mit during fielding sessions etc Great experience. Also as I was there during the day in the pavilion I got to chat with a few guys. For that Test Lara was 12th man and everytime he took gloves or a drink out he would sit next to me on the bench and we would have a chat.

    So basically an important game for English cricket, full of great players and a great personal experience interacting and netting with the players.
