    you've got to be kidding me! Edgbaston vs Brisbane should be final. But since we are choosing it now, I'll go with Edgbaston. 4+ RPO through out the game and 40 wickets fell. It never happened before, and won't happen again.

    Edgbaston. Great though the other games were, Edgbaston simply didn't have a dull moment. England's first innings was even greater than it even appears on the scorecard by being in the context of what had gone on a week previously and ditto their dismantling of the Aus batting because we all knew that they could add 200 for their last five wickets if they ever got going. Day 3 was possibly the best day of test cricket ever - Fred's one-legged assault in the morning, that over to remove Langer and Ponting and another dismantling of one of the best top 7s you could wish to see. And then the almost-horror of Day 4. Every session was unmissable, which cannot be said of virtually any other test match.

    The oval.

    Without it, we may never have had an Edgbaston.

    Feel I ought to agree with DoG, but I really can't see that cricket history would be very different if we didn't have that little urn, so Dunedin

    Have to go with The Oval.

    Pitch was doing a bit, I imagine.

    - 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."
