    Sooooo many twisys and turns.... bhajji hattrick, awesome waugh hundred to rescue Australia, VVS lone man standing in the first dig... India virtually beaten, then THAT amazing fourth day, VVS n Dravid ensure what seems like a miraculous draw, Harbhajan tears through the middle order again, Tendulkar with that amazing spell, that googly to Warne, 7 wickets in the final session....
    Amazing thing is that apart from VVS dravids partnership, all those other amazing ingredients were there too...only Edgbaston 2005 comes close for me

    Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
    RIP Craigos

    Headingley, because its great and because the alternative contains the two countries associated with Jono, nuff said

    Ha, weird how it's the two "following-on victories" that made it to the final.

    I think Headingley is the more remarkable comback tho. India were actually able to declare seven down in their second innings; by the time Engalnd's seventh wicket fell they were still 92 runs shy of even making Australia bat again.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Eden gardens for me, such an amazing test match, to pull one over one of the greatest Aussie teams of all time in such a fashion was incredible.

    Quite like the final battle. Two of the best tests of all time.Voting on this one is going to be partisan but can't help it. Eden Garden for me simply because I watched it!

    Kolkata, I think.
    And we still haven't walked in the glow of each other's majestic presence.

    Kolkata, because even before the great comeback, the match had great ebb and flow.

    Headingly was a distinct one-sided affair before Botham went nuts.

    Right, it's been around 48 hours, Kolkata wins comfortably win nine out of fourteen votes.

    I hope everyone's enjoyed this battle.
