Karachi for me, was a landmark Test for this England side. The Adelaide thing was just a top edge anyway
Frankly the test was pretty dour for around 3 and a half to 4 days but then exploded into life. And that finish... wow...
Only time ever that ive loved Bucknors umpiring... really stuck it to Moin brilliantly
cape town? gotta vote for marto i guess.
Just realised that both Karachi 2000 and 2006 had been nominated... lack of Pakistan vs Australia Karachi 1994 is a travesty... surprised none of the Pakistani posters mentioned it
Has to be Adelaide, good as Karachi was.
Cricket as a blood sport and all that.

UPDATE: Adelaide 5, Karachi 2, Cape Town 1.
Bodyline having the clear edge ats.
Karachi, purely for the comedy of the Pakistani fielders not moving anytime England's batsmen hit boundaries because they had no idea where the ball was.
Bodyline wins a lower scoring battle, winning 5 out of the 9 votes cast.
A juicy and interesting battle up now.
3rd Test: England v India at The Oval, Aug 19-24, 1971 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo
3rd Test: India v Australia at Chennai, Mar 18-22, 2001 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo
1st Test: Australia v Pakistan at Colombo (PSS), Oct 3-7, 2002 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo
While Colombo and The Oval each had a bowling performance for the gods (Shoaib and Chandra), Chennai was one the best overall games ever. 1300+ runs, 38 wickets, a double century, a 15-fer and a Tendulkar ton to boot.
Chennai. Remember watching it nervously in college canteen when India had to get some 15 odd runs with 3 wickets in hand. One of the great memories.
