Definite candidate from a New Zealand perspective comes from this match:
3rd Test: South Africa v New Zealand at Cape Town, Jan 2-6, 1995 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo
Shane Thompson, with New Zealand batting to save the match, played an immaculate forward defensive shot to the bowling of Clive Eksteen. He was so pleased with it that he decided to hold the pose for about 10 seconds. Unfortunately, he didn't realise that in stretching forward to play the shot, his back leg had slipped out of his crease. While still holding that technically perfect forward defensive pose, the silly mid-on fielder calmly picked up the ball and underarmed it into the stumps, running Thompson out.

Ha, that Thomson video is classic. What a fool. In the years following he's hit the bottle very hard and is now a rotund fella with a veiny wine nose.
I know it's not a test but Carl Cachopa's dismissal in the first innings never gets old. Click on the c Gillespie b Woodcock to see it.

Can't find the video, but what about the 'mind the windows, tino' incident?
