    Was the Oval, the "We'll get 'em in singles" match, Fred? Yeah I know it's apocryphal, but it's a good myth.
    Do I contradict myself?

    'twas indeed, and it's sort of true - Rhodes snicked one through the slips for four at the beginning but if they had their little chat after that then 'tis true (well if you disregard an overthrow)

    The Oval even though it was the 2nd best test in the series (behind the 4th test at Old Trafford)

    Old Trafford. 19/90 & all that.
    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

    I'll vote for Old Trafford too, although the Karachi match looks amazing.

    Karachi is a memorable scorecard, though sadly tainted by the fact that Malik played a significant role, but as brumbers says you can't look beyond 19-90, so Old Trafford for me too

    Karachi, best test I ever saw Pakistan involved in some very high quality bowling from 3 W's (Wasim, Warne and Waqar) David Boon's hundred was a masterpiece and any game that puts Ian Healy in a bad light is surely a winner.
