Description
England claimed one of the most dramatic victories in Test match history with a two-run win against their great rivals and level the Ashes series in the process.

Australia required a further 107 runs on the fourth morning of the match with just two wickets in hand, but some fine batting from Shane Warne, Brett Lee and Mike Kasprowicz took them to within a lusty blow of victory.

But paceman Steve Harmison rescued England with almost all hope gone, forcing Kasprowicz into evasive action as he gloved the ball to wicket-keeper Geraint Jones.

4 days of high-pressure tension. 40 sweat-soaked wickets. 1,176 adrenalin-charged runs. And England winning by just 2 runs, the narrowest margin of victory in Ashes history.

But even these extraordinary statistics don't tell the whole story. It was nail-biting cricket all the way - from Ponting's decision to put England in to bat on Thursday to the Sunday morning rearguard action by Australia's fast bowling pair, Lee and Kasprowicz.

'Freddie' Flintoff's man-of-the-match heroics with bat and ball; Shane Warne's msemerising leg break bowling, including what will forever be called the 'Strauss' ball; Trescothick and Pietersen's first innings batting; the crucial Flintoff/Jones last wicket stand; the sheer aggression of Steve Harmison and Brett Lee, two of the most frightening bowlers in world cricket; the list of great moments is endless.

Now you can relive 95 minutes of edited highlights from the greatest ever Ashes Test match on this superb DVD.

Commentators: Mark Nicholas, Richie Benaud, Geoffrey Boycott, Michael Atherton, Tony Greig, Michael Slater and Simon Hughes.
