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.
    Don't forget your bowlers coming off after bowling an enervating 5 overs to get a drink, a towel down, coaching tips because they were incapable of independent thought and of course a fresh supply of Murray Mints to keep the ball reverse swinging.

    Good to see that you're still sore about it.

    Headingley.

    Can't believe Chennai won the last one either, if I'd have thought it was a chance I'd have gone for Dunedin.

    Why "can't believe it"? It was an India vs. Pakistan match that had excellent spin bowling, great batting, twists throughout the match and an epic finish.

    The Oval was over in the blink of an eye and Burgey, who attended that match, tells me it wasn't that good itbt.
