    Which is the most important dismissal in cricket?

    A wicket at a crucial time that decided the fate of the innings, the bowler or batsman's career, match, series, international ranking of the teams, and world order...

    And I am including tests, one-dayers and first class matches...

    Could it be this?

    Maybe would've been Stephen Waugh c Browne b K Benjamin 42, Sabina Park, 1995.

    As it was, though, the catch was dropped.

    If we include dropped chances:

    MEK Hussey c. Kallis b. Pollock 27, Melbourne 2005

    Who knows what would've happened in that Test series (and even in world cricket) if Kallis had held that catch? The possibilities are almost frightening.

    The Waugh one would probably be more significant, though...as would the Kasprowicz dismissal.

    Surely the most important dismissal ever should be of some lasting significance (important misses is surely a separate thread) in the history of the game not a random dismissal of little consequence beyond the time in which it happened.

    The dismissal right at the end of this sequence is surely the winner.

    Was Kenny Benjamin, to be honest.

    Hmm, maybe it might've been.

    Still would've been better if it was Winston, mind - Kenneth Benjamin was crap compared to his namesake.

    Gatting's reverse sweep in the 1987 WC final, which decided the game and set up Aus' recovery from the mid80's and paved the way eventual world domination. Without Fat Gatt's brainstorm, none of that would ever have happened.
