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 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.

"This is not the time for namby-pamby promising youngsters who might just do something; not the time for building for the future. Pragmatism rules and they don't come more pragmatic than Rogers."
- Victor Marks makes the case for stiff-legged and stiff-armed 35 year old left-handers in Ashes squads
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
Maybe we wouldn't be so quick to fill buckets with filth if we knew they had a soul. Or maybe that's what they're into. Ain't no way to get inside a bucket's mind.
Definitely in my top 5 of all-time
The Old Trafford, Manchester test looks amazing. That takes my vote.
