    The first Test ton I saw was Bradman's 187 vs England in November 1946 at The Gabba.He teamed with Lindsay Hassett who also scored 120 odd in the same innings. So you could say I got 2 for the price of 1

    Quite possibly the same for me.

    As far as ODI's go maybe Stephen Fleming 111* vs Australia 3rd ODI: New Zealand v Australia at Napier, Feb 12, 1998 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo

    Gordon Greenidge. 213 v New Zealand at Auckland in 1987.

    I see he was 112* overnight on the first day, I would have gone on the second day and saw him progress to 200.

    I am not sure I used to go to Boxing Day tests all the time so that I think that would mean my answer would be

    Boon 1995 Boxing Day test

    or Ricky Ponting 1997 Boxing Day test

    Salman Butt, SCG, 2004/05.

    We actually stood up for the **** when he made it.

    Was also Asif's debut Test iirc.

    Steve Waugh's ton at 3 New Years SCG 93 against Windies. Lara's 277 was the next couple of days.

    I checked through the first dozen or so Tests I went to, and no tons were scored on the days I attended. The closest would have been Mike Atherton being run out for 99.5 at Lords in 1993.

    I have a feeling, though I'll have to think about it a bit more, that the first Test century I saw was Nasser Hussain's effort in Andrew Strauss' first test:

    1st Test: England v New Zealand at Lord's, May 20-24, 2004 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo

    That's a little bit sad, as I'd been to a reasonable number of Test matches by then.

    May have been others if i really think, but memory suggests Robin Smith 149* vs Windies at Lords. Can still remember Ambrose bowling 4 successive bouncers and some murderous square cuts of the like you will rarely see.

    Or was Atherton's ODI ton earlier in the year? Maybe that was the one with the 4 bouncers. About 40 minutes to get off the mark.

    For me:
    1st Test: New Zealand v South Africa at Auckland, Feb 27-Mar 3, 1999 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo
    Saw Cullinan go from 85* to 246* on the second day.

    First ton I saw from the first ball was Fleming's 192 against Pakistan in Hamilton.

    Never seen a ton at any of the 4 Tests I've been to. All been bowlers' days, except in Cardiff, which was mostly rain.
    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    An amazing innings. History will unfortunately see Smith hidden in the shadows and he will not be remembered as he should be. A fantastic player against the quicks.

    Judge was an awesome batsman of fast bowling and I used to imitate him when I was a kid... ( high backlift )

    Wish robelinda can upload some more of Judge's knocks.
