With South Africa one up after two Tests, England salvaged a draw at Old Trafford in the third when, following on, their No. 11 Angus Fraser somehow survived the final over of the day from Allan Donald. A raucous leg-before appeal in that over could have gone either way, but Doug Cowie turned it down and England were still in the contest, England v South Africa, 3rd Test, Old Trafford, July 6, 1998

Allan Donald cannot believe that his lbw shout against Angus Fraser has been turned down
