    Right. So I've padded it out a bit using Rob's video to 48, which is a nice even number to get us going. There'll be 12 battles of 4, 2 per day.

    Pick the two "best" dismissals from each. Top two go through. Closes in 24 hours.

    ---

    Battle 1

    Fine variety on offer first up - a vague wander down the pitch, a reverse sweep, a comedy slower ball and a full bunger.

    Chris Lewis, Aus vs Eng, 2nd Test 1993 @ Lord's, 2nd innings. Decided to go for a walk down at Tim May, then had another walk back to the pavilion when stumped by a mile.

    Ashwell Prince, SL vs SA, 2nd Test 2011 @ Durban, 1st innings. Given SA were 6/117, not the best time to pull out the reverse sweep to Herath.

    Chris Read, Eng vs NZ, 2nd Test 1999 @ Lord's, 1st innings. Possibly the funniest slower ball dismissal in history.

    Graham Gooch, Aus vs Eng, 2nd Test 1994 @ MCG, 1st innings. Never a good look to get out first ball of the day, even worse when you've spooned a full toss back to the bowler.

    ---

    Battle 2

    More unusual fare here, with "use your bat (properly)" being a common theme, and one favourite to go a long, long way.

    Michael Clarke, Aus vs Pak, 3rd Test 2010 @ Hobart, 1st innings. To this day I still am at a loss to come up with an explanation for Clarke letting a harmless, gentle leggie bowl him from outside leg, save for that he must've fallen asleep.

    Adam Hollioake, Aus vs Eng, 6th Test 1997 @ The Oval, 1st innings. I know it's Shane Warne but generally speaking, if it pitches middle you should use your bat.

    Brad Haddin, Aus vs SA, 1st Test 2011 @ Cape Town, 2nd innings. Yes, it's that innings and that shot.

    Inzamam ul-Haq, Eng vs Pak, 3rd Test 2006 @ Headingley, 1st innings. Even when knocking over his own stumps with his belly Inzamam does it with some grace, only just clipping the bails as he vaults over.

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
