  • Boycott b Holding 0

  • Boycott b Holding

  • Out, damned stump

    Patrick Eagar on the most legendary over in Test cricket

  • The greatest over of them all?

    Many people can recall outstanding deliveries, such as Shane Warne's'ball of the century' to Mike Gatting at Old Trafford in 1993
