Part 5 - most memorable Ashes moments

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

Old Trafford 1993 - An Ashes legend arrives
Shane Warne's Ball of the Century changed the feel of Ashes cricket for more than a decade. Warne, nervous about his first delivery in an Ashes Test, just wanted to land a turning legspinner in roughly the right place. Mike Gatting's look of consternation showed that he had done just that.

Trent Bridge 2005 - The substitute
Gary Pratt became a household name for one moment of brilliant fielding - a direct hit from cover to run out Australia's captain Ricky Ponting - which left Ponting seething about England's tactical use of substitutes.

Edgbaston 2005 - Freddie's over
Andrew Flintoff has surely never bowled a finer over for England than the one at Edgbaston in which he dismissed Ricky Ponting and Justin Langer in a single over. The legend of Fred was born.
