Part 1 - most memorable Test

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

Headingley 1981
England win as 500-1 outsiders thanks to Ian Botham's explosive hitting and the ferocious fast bowling of Bob Willis

Headingley 1989
Steve Waugh's finest Ashes knock, plus a century for Mark Taylor, gave Australia 601 for 7 in the first innings and an advantage they never relinquished

Old Trafford 1993
The Ball of the Century. Need we say more? Well, there was also a hundred for Ian Healy and a handled-the-ball dismissal

Edgbaston 2005
The Greatest Test? A nerve-wracking finish fuelled by a memorable Australian last-wicket partnership from Brett Lee and Michael Kasprowicz

Trent Bridge 2005
Another from the 2005 vintage. Andrew Flintoff's rumbustious hundred set up England for a victory that was ultimately far tighter than they had ever imagined
