People talk about Bell v Warne like he was Daryll Cullinan Mk 2, but IIRC he actually did better than a lot of batsmen against him, particularly in 2006-07. Getting shown up a couple of times by one of if not the the greatest spin bowler the world's ever seen is hardly the worst sin out there. You could say the same about a lot of batsmen during Warne's career, including some of the best you care to name.
Somebody has to...

Watch out, for as soon as it pleases them they’ll send you out to protect their gold in wars whose weapons, rapidly developed by servile scientists, will become more and more deadly until they can with a flick of the finger tear a million of you to pieces
RIP Craigos. A true CW legend. You will be missed.

Actually the one where Warne barely appealed might have been a tailender (possibly Harmison) that he'd trapped in front of middle with a straight one.

There can't have been a more theatrical cricketer than Warne.

Slightly disappointed that Ian Bell only appears three times.
There's a whole stack in this thread I haven't added because I simply have no idea when they happened and I cbf finding out myself. So if someone wants to sort that out, I'll add them. I've also taken the liberty of adding one that I suspect people may have forgotten but really was hilariously, appallingly bad at the time and still is.

11:50 minutes in, just before stumps, with a first innings deficit, Captain Alpha Intent holes out to Herath on the boundary.

Seems very skewed to recent times. Understandable, I guess, but I wonder if poor dismissals are more common these days as well.

Nah I specifically put a "you have to have seen it" disclaimer on it (though it's fine if the only place you've seen it is Youtube). No way to fairly judge a dismissal no one's actually seen. Obviously more recent ones will be fresher in the memory too.
