Phil Simmons: For me it was a moment of disbelief. Twenty runs earlier I had gone for a catch off Tim May, but I wasn't sure if it was taken cleanly. That would have been the last wicket. I got anxious with every run and every ball after that. It had been a hard day, and both Curtly Ambrose and Courtney Walsh had bowled their hearts out. Finally Craig McDermott edged a ball as he tried to leave it. When Junior Murray caught him, there wasn't a West Indian there who was not at least two feet above the ground because of the intensity and emotion of the situation. It was a relief for me, and there was joy as well, because if we had lost, we would've lost the Frank Worrell Trophy. Photograph by Getty Images

Nine and done

No courtesy, no pants

Full metal racket

Muskets at dawn

Another wet day at Headingley

Telling off the toffs

Out, damned stump

Vandals stopped play

In through the slamming door

Catch as catch can
