    India-Pakistan if you want to go with numbers. Ind-Aus in recent decades. The ashes too.

    Flintoff v Australia
    Roach v Ponting

    Oldish School
    Lara v McGrath
    Warne v England
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Rivalry is only good if there is a good fight and the winner isn't preordained. When you have the history of Eng-Aus and you have a great fight, there is nothing in the world like it, as we saw in 2005 Ashes. That's why people like me, who support neither team in particular (though since then, England have become my second favorite team) could not get our eyes off the action, and I watched every ball as a result.

    The problem is that too often it's one sided and it's not nearly as much fun.

    So assuming the series is competitive, I'd go with:

    1. England - Australia
    2. India - Australia
    3. India - Pakistan
    4. England - West Indies


    In terms of what we actually see, India-Australia has been the most fun to watch over the past decade, even from a neutral perspective I'd think (though I guess people with neutral perspectives can weigh in on that).

    But when Ashes are good, they're unbelievable. Hopefully a few more incidents like Sydneygate will keep building the India-Australia rivalry, like bodyline and other incidents have built up the England-Australia one. And of course, continuation of good matches.

    I went for Aus v Eng though Ireland v Afghanistan sounds explosive.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    While the Ashes now are pretty interesting, for 75% of my cricket watching life it was only the margin that had to be decided. Don't know how people managed to maintain interest in it through the 90s. Used to get pissed of with the importance given to it by the English press.
