Part 3 - most memorable bowling performance

We have chosen the following shortlist from the great Ashes contests in England over the past 30 years.

Bob Willis (Eng) 8-43, Headingley 1981
Bob Willis went to Ian Botham's barbecue on the rest day at Headingley in 1981 convinced he would never play for England again. Then he summoned one of Test history's greatest spells.

Craig McDermott (Aus) 6-70, Lord's 1985
Craig McDermott rarely looked more impressive in an Australia shirt than when he took six wickets at Lord's in 1985, a summer in which his 30 Test wickets announced his arrival on the fast-bowling scene.

Shane Warne (Aus) 6-48, Old Trafford 1997
Shane Warne began 1997 by storming out of a Madame Tussauds media conference when references were made about his expanding waistline. But he was no waxwork at Old Trafford as this display silenced his critics.

Glenn McGrath (Aus) 8-38, Lord's 1997
England made only 77 at Lord's when Glenn McGrath took advantage of ideal bowling conditions at a ground he always loved.
