Yeah Colombo. Only not remembered as an epic compared to other tests because of the two teams it involves and where it was played.
Kinda feel bad about my vote now.... tied test deserves more than two votes
Madras 1986. Result be damned, Border's kick to the proverbial nuts of Jones' ego made this Test.
Also criminally under documented in this game is Matthews taking a five-fer while wearing a ****ing jumper.

RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012
Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.
Ambrose & Walsh in excelsis. I also think I'm right in saying it was the first ever test between the Windies and SA too; the apartheid version of the latter opting not to play any team made up of non-whites even before their isolation.

"Predictably, the ending of his international career did not end the argument about Pietersen's merits, as an army of informed commentators and Piers Morgan weighed in to defend or attack him."

Chennai for me, geez... that venue does produce some awesome tests.
Bridgetown, for cricketing reasons as well as the non-cricketing ones, though had Sachin's efforts got India over the line that might have changed my view
