Dynamic Duos

Steve Harmison and Monty Panesar


Accolades are not enough for the English pair who clinically assasinated the hapless Pakistanis. They shared all the 19 wickets (one was run out in the first innings) between them and returned with individual match figures of 11/76 (Harmison) and 8/93 (Monty)--a fitting tribute to the 50th anniversary of Jim Laker's 19 wicket haul against the Aussies here at Old Trafford.

With happy times all over, there's is always someone to feel sorry for -- Ashley Giles.

Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene


The two batsmen bulldozed the South Africans, breaking Test and First Class records on their way. Importantly, the Test is still alive, and with two days left the Sri Lankans have ample time for a sweetly deserved victory. Sangakkara and Jayawardene amassed 624 runs in the third wicket, highest ever partnership for any wicket in Test or first class matches.
