Devon Malcolm: "The South Africans were 1-0 up on their 1994 tour of England - their first after apartheid - and we simply had to win the third Test, at The Oval. We did, and I took nine wickets in the second innings. This one, of Hansie Cronje, was a classic fast-bowler's dismissal. I worked him out with some serious bouncers and then got him with one that shot through before he could bring his bat down. I had been hit by a bouncer in the first innings. I had said to them then: "You guys are history." There were a lot of pent-up emotions involved, as you can see from how I'm pointing at the South African dressing room." Photograph by Getty Images
