    If you could time-travel to any cricket game in history?

    Inspired by the reincarnation thread. A time machine has been built and you can take a trip to any one cricket game all of which you will get to watch live before coming back. Which would you pick?

    Watching one of India's great test victories live would be amazing but probably I would prefer to go back further and watch a game featuring the greats who haven't left behind video footage. Ranji, Grace and Barnes would probably be highest on the list for me. The thing is I don't know enough about that era to think of a specific game. Was there a game, especially a test match, which featured great performances by both Ranji and Grace for example?

    Not sure about a particular match, but I would have liked to been around when the bodyline series was played.

    That seems like a fabulous test and Trumper is probably fourth on my list of pre-video players I would love to watch live. If Ranji had played a bit longer in his innings, it would be very high on my list.

    I'd go and watch the Bodyline series and sit there laughing.

    Has to be the bodyline series for me - if I had to choose just one of the Tests it would be the last - must have been incredible to witness the ovation that Larwood got when he was out for 98 in the England 1st innings, and to watch the reactions as he limped off a Test ground, for what proved to be the last time, with The Don after the latter had been dismissed in the Australian second innings
