    Mine is Matthew Hayden. Day 1 vs. NZ @ the Gabba 2001.

    Got to watch my childhood hero Mark Waugh make a duck LBW to Astle. On IPhone so no linkage sorry.

    A joint effort from Graeme Smith and Neil McKenzie 1st Test: England v South Africa at Lord's, Jul 10-14, 2008 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo

    Lords should be thankful I went back. All the other tons in the game would've been great to see too.

    Geoff Boycott, 125 v India at the Oval, 1979 (he was 83* overnight). Also saw the first 42 of Gavaskar's 221 on the same day.

    Interestingly, it wasn't until my 9th England test that I saw an England player ton up. I'd seen parts of centuries but never actually seen the moment someone tonned up.

    First I saw was Sachin Tendulkar v England at Edgbaston 96. Though I did see NZ at Trent Bridge in 86 but have no idea if that was the day Bracewell got a ton or not as I was only 10 at the time.

    The tied test in 1987 and so I guess that 200 by Dean Jones..


    But the first hundred I remember seeing was by Sidhu against England in 1993 in Chennai. Sachin and Kambli tonned up too, I think..

    I believe it was Mathew Sinclair's double ton at the basin.

    first international ton was Lara at the SCG in a game that my memory tells me WI were surely going to win before it rained like it never rained before in Sydney, but cricinfo tells me that was an unlikely result 4th Match: Australia v West Indies at Sydney, Jan 17, 2001 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    The way Lara was batting, I definitely thought WI had a very good chance. One of his best knocks.
