    The best moment you have seen live

    This is a thread to discuss the best/favourite moment in cricket you've seen, the moment which has most made you jump to your feet and scream out GO <insert country name>. actually at the ground not on replay or anything. Mines the Vic v. NSW tie and Harvey running out Ganguly earlier this year

    Well on TV two stand out , Donald being run out in the 1999 WC semi final , and Steve Waugh's last ball hundred last year.

    At the ground Bevo's 102* against New Zealand in 2001/02 at the G after we were 6-82.
    The atmosphere there was amazing.

    Think it would have to be Freddie's quickest ODI 50 for England. Huge sixes and just when England needed that extra oomph.

    England v Sri Lanka, Edgbaston 2002

    Awesome stuff. Haven't seen much cricket live so this easily won it for me.

    Sehwag's 195 at Melbourne on Boxing Day last year. When he hit the 6 to get to 195 I was on my feet. Then Katich gives him a full toss, he swings it and I got up thinking it was another 6 for his 200, unfortunately he was caught.

    None the less I loved that knock, my favourite I have seen live.

    No doubt the WC 99 semi final SA v AUS

    Others include India beating England in the 99 WC after we came back the next day.

    The princess Diana charity match where Sachin Tendulkar scored a brilliant hundred.

    Worst was the WC 99 game IND v ZIM.

    I actually had 2 tickets for the 99 WC final and sold them for around 370 each to some Pakistani, he must of had a good time

    Mark Ramprakash scored a good hundred at the Oval in 2001.

    Still, the most entertaining live cricket moment that I remember is during the 2003 WI/Aus Test series. Stuart MacGill was fielding on the third man boundary right in front of where I was sitting. There were about 10 Aussies decked in gold and green (downing Carib and Pepsi) sitting down on either side of my seat. They kept yelling out at MacGill "Stuuuuueeeey", "Stumeister" and "MacmacmacmacGeeel". Stuart MacGill obviously heard then and his expressions were priceless.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Saqlain clean-bowling Gilchrist as he walked down the track to attempt to add to his already extrovertly large, very fast innings.
    Trent Bridge, 2001, NatWest Series.
    Also Cork taking the final wicket (King, 54ao) and hitting the winning runs at Lord's in 2000.
    Unforgettable game and obscure moment but such an important one for one of those strange reasons.

    And I might add Stewart bringing-up his century (final one in Tests) at Old Trafford in 2002.
    So much pressure on such a fantastic player, so little justification in that pressure, so many fools proven wrong.
    Very, very special.

    Haven't seen masses of live cricket but most recently gayle's century off 79 balls with an injured leg. He went to 90 off about 60 balls then slowed down. Was just good seeing pollock and especially nel flayed absolutely everywhere. No feet used by gayle, all hand-eye, great stuff.
    Then in the same test dwayne smith hit a run-a-ball century, not bad going on debut!
