    We're putting together a feature on the best Tests, ODIs and T20s of the past decade, basically since Cricket Web opened in October 2001.

    So far we have the following matches:

    ODIs

    South Africa v Australia ODI (the 434 match)
    Ireland v England ODI World Cup Match (Kevin O'Brien's innings)
    India v Pakistan World Cup 2010 semi final

    Tests

    Australia v New Zealand Test (the Hobart victory)
    England v Australia (2005 Edgbaston Test)

    Twenty20

    Pakistan v Australia Twenty20 World Cup 2010 Semi Final (Hussey's innings)
    Australia v England Twenty20 World Cup 2010 Final
    India v Pakistan Twenty20 World Cup 2007 Final

    Would be interesting to hear what all your favourite matches are and help us add to the list

    What year was the Australia v New Zealand match? I have no recollection....

    ODIs:

    Aus v NZ 2002 (Bevan miracle innings and Bond awesomeness - 10th Match: Australia v New Zealand at Melbourne, Jan 29, 2002 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo. Atmosphere was electric in the 'G that night.)

    Tests:

    1st test, RSA v Aus 2002. I know it wasn't remotely close but you were seeing one of the great teams at the height of their powers - and a Gilly double ton.
    'It is hard to recall a batsman quite so serene, so unrushed, so unflappable.' Chris Ryan on ... look to the left. Ahhhh.

    Yep, I remember covering this match for this site - hands down the best ODI I can remember, had a bit of everything.

    Would recommend a whole review of the '05 Ashes series tbh - anything less would be doing it an injustice.

    Either of the Australia - SA Tests from last summer wouldn't be out of place either.

    Adelaide '07 a ripper too.

    Whole heap of Eng/Aus/SA Tests could be thrown in that list as well. India vs SL has produced some good Tests the last few years also, as well as Eng-Pak.
