    Sydney was, in terms of impact on the sport, arguably one of the most important tests of the last two decades. Not in a good way tho, it's fair to say.

    As a sporting contest, I'm going with Norman Cowans, AB & Thommo, Miller's rebound & all that: the MCG.

    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
    - Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli

    If it were a two-way battle then of course, but I just feel that to make it to the next round, things should have a majority rather than a plurality. But if that is what most people want to do, then sure....
    5-0

    Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.

    Just keep it simple Morgie, and give it to the one with most votes. I understand why its not ideal when it doesn't have the majority of votes, but in a battle like this which unfortunately isn't getting a massive amount of votes (so far), just do most votes so we can get through the rounds.

    Fair enough. Adelaide goes through, now things only require a simple lead.

    Apologies for being late, was busy and it got late by the time I wanted to finish it. Disappointing turnout, but Melbourne wins.

    This battle looks fairly bland from the outside, but I may be wrong....

    Biased vote, but Cardiff. Pretty turd Test for 4 days but I don't think I've ever been quite as tense as I was on day five. Couldn't even bring myself to go the toilet between overs in case I missed a ball.

    Agreed, though when you get to my age I'm afraid the toilet breaks do need to be taken

    Have to go for Galle. Best live innings I've seen ahead of Laxman's 281 and Clarke's 151.
