    Amazing matches all three of them... Kolkata and Edgbaston deserve to be finalists.
    Tough one but its got to be .Kolkata 2001 Even putting aside my bias as an Indian, i honestly believe it to be the greatest test match ever

    Edgbaston. To reiterate my point about 40 wickets, 4 RPO across the game. Will never happen again. The greatest game ever played IMO.

    Really tough one this. Eden Gardens, like Headingly was a phenomenal turnaround, but for share enthrallment Edgbaston has it's nose marginally in front for me.

    Edgbaston
    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    Eden Gardens continues it's hot streak, receiving two thirds of the vote.

    Finally, the final. I'm gonna 48 hours for this.

    2nd Test: India v Australia at Kolkata, Mar 11-15, 2001 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo



    3rd Test: England v Australia at Leeds, Jul 16-21, 1981 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo

    5-0

    RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012

    Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.

    Terrific game that Eden Gardens was it has to be Headingley, so many sideshows coming together - Botham's heroics after being written off after the first Test, Brearley's return with the Midas touch, and Bob Willis's amazing spell to reply to those pundits who were calling time on his career - not to mention Lillee and Marsh's famous wager

    Can't vote for a match where Trevor Chappell scored 27 in 135 balls.


    In all seriousness, seriously tough, but Eden Gardens for me. Everyone talks about Laxman and Dravid, but at 0-74, even after that epic partnership Australia should not have won that game. They lost so many wickets in that last session.

    Both amazing tests, but Headingley is straight into the confectionary stall and out again for mine.
