Predictably, the Tied Test wins in a walk.
A tale of three countries up now. Looks pretty competitive, though I have been wrong....

RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012
Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.
Have to say I did not know anything about any of those three matches. Looking at scorecards, and glancing over the match reports, I'd go for Adelaide 1993. Curtly Ambrose heroics FTW.
I will never ever ever ever forget being gutted at billy being given out off the helmet. Fantastic test. Adelaide

I was 6 years old; and yet still have memories of Adelaide. Any game with Ambrose at his peak should make it to the final.
Amazing fightback from England. I witnessed the denoument huddled around a small portable telly in a B&B in Whitley Bay with my mates where I was on a stag do; cricket > titty bars, clearly. Great memories.
Cork's knock was the best 33 you'll ever see. He came to the crease with 39 still needed and seven wickets down facing a fired up Ambrose and Walsh and lost Caddick, who'd set up the win 5 for eff all the day before, with 28 still required.

"Predictably, the ending of his international career did not end the argument about Pietersen's merits, as an army of informed commentators and Piers Morgan weighed in to defend or attack him."

Do I contradict myself?
Very well then I contradict myself,
(I am large, I contain multitudes.
Will go for Adelaide just for Curtley's expression in that picture
I'm always suspicious of shops that sell bait.
Definitely in my top 5 of all-time
lords amazing game.
Lords. End of an era and a nerve-shredding finish that didn't look remotely likely two days in.

RIP Fardin Qayyumi and Craig Walsh - true icons of CricketWeb.
The Old Trafford, Manchester test looks amazing. That takes my vote.
