    If Abdur Rauf had held that catch, that would have made my year.

    Flintoff's 5 for on one leg against the Aussies after bowling 10,0000 overs should do it.

    India becoming No.1 in test cricket is surely the brightest moment for me, despite the fact that we played only 6 tests during this year. We are the only team not to have lost a single test this year and have the best batting avg of 58.

    Yesterday tbh.

    Other than that, Clark's 6s in the Ashes, Hughes in SA, Klinger's double, Holland beating England, CT finals, Bangalore getting into the IPL final and Bolly.

    There was an inordinate number of mentions of the T20 world cup in that article. I have to say that I'd completely forgotten that this even happened.

    For me the highlight was being there at the Gabba on day 3 and then Adelaide on days 2 and 3. Seeing the game live is a special experience, even if I did get a parking fine at the Gabba.

    Has to be the Broad ashes winning spell in the 5th test.Brilliant bit of bowling by him and the Aussies couldn't cope with him.

    Freddie at Lords and yesterday afternoon in Durban would probably have won it for me, but having been at the fourth day at Edgbaston, the moment Swann bowled Ponting and then the real sense we could go on to win the Ashes back as I finally got home at midnight were both fairly euphoric.

    Let's narrow this down a little - how about a shot of the year, or a ball of the year?

    One that sticks in my mind the most is Ponting lacerating Ryan Sidebottom for the most dismissive of straight sixes in an ODI at Trent Bridge - a stroke that was fit to bursting with class, balance, power and aggression.

    The ball of the year is a bit tougher: I haven't really watched enough wickets - heck, I think the only Aussie Ashes victim I saw live was North at Cardiff with the score at 900-5 or whatever it was... but I'm sure I'll find a favourite as I work through my DVDs. Jimmy produced some special nuts against the Windies - but nothing comes to mind as a single, year-defining unplayable... oh, wait. Taylor's. Duh.

    Angelo Mathews for fielding moment, too, redefining the bounds of possibility.

    Yeah there wasn't even any signs that I was within the traffic zone either. Was dirty and thought about taking it to court, but ended up just copping the $50 sweet.

    That is the one for me, was at Lords on the final morning and will never forget that spell of bowling.

    Mitchell Johnson's spell vs SA Durban the best for me. But other moments that where top for me this year would be:

    - The exciting bowling of Roach & Aamer
    - Gayle hittng Lee for six in the T20 WC
    - Keiron Pollard vs NSW in the Champions League (the group stage match not the final)
    - Eoin Morgan batting in ODIs
    - Tendulkar's 175
    - Ponting's straight 6 of Sidebottom in a ODI
    - Phil Hughes batting in SA
    - Every time Watson hit a pull-shot

    Broad bowled a couple of rippers in the Ashes for memory, I think he bowled Clarke or Haddin with one, hard to beat.
