    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    I wish I had seen some of them!! The one between Ul-Haq and Ahmed I heard about in the news......too bad for Warney that Healy did not get it. The Astle-Morrison one sounded as though it was entertaining, would have liked to have seen that one. Giles Sri Lanka, didn't he do that in 2 Tests......?

    the Thomo/Border one was a great one...utterly nerve wracking....Tavare actually dropped the ball which went over is shoulder and Dusty Miller ran round and caught it...if he hadnt have done the ball would probably gone for 4 and Australia would have won.

    Just the one test for giles, though the same thing happened in the 2nd test but it was as much vaughan who helped us survive, ended up leaving it to batty and read though.
    The Hanif Mohammad is the stuff of folklore though, brilliant.

    I think Wisden should stop putting free stuff up on the internet that people pay money for in a monthly magazine....

    No they should stop charging people for it.

    What about the Inzamam one against Bangladesh recently?

    Was surprised to see Giles in there - didn't think it was that much of an achievement.

    England did very well to save the SL tests, but I cant help feeling that they could have picked a better rearguard from all the tests in history.... I guess it was just them being a bit fickle and reactionary.... My opinion of Wisden is slowly starting to decrease too

    They say if Hanif Mohammad ever gave a chance, you better take it otherwise you be punished over and over and over...

    Danny Morrison saved himself from being nominated as being the worst tail-ender of all time by batting out that miracle innings with Nathan Astle against the English in 1996 at Eden Park.

    I never saw that and I struggle to this day to believe it really happened.
    How can someone who's been primarily so bad have one day of being so unbelievably good?
    That's surely the greatest last-wicket rearguard ever. But the single-innings ones of Hanif Mohammed and Atherton beat it in terms of this overall grouping IMO.

    And yet Morrison never played Test cricket. How the irony.

    I thnk Craig omitted again from the sentence.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!
