That was St Dawid's Day, Kev. My first view as well. At 21-4 I was thinking of which pub to decamp to. He should have had Flintoff stumped too.

For a few days afterwards one of the BBC sites headlined a comment - is there a better player of spin in England than Dawid Malan? The spinners he marmalised were Simon Marshall (did he ever play again?) and Faf du Plessis! Not exactly Warne and Gibbs. and nothing to do with "real cricket" (these days T20 has become "real" now that it is under threat from the Hundred).

That matcvh saw the best and worst of sportsmanship - Flintoff running over to shake Malan's hand but also Cork using a very naughty word to Ed Joyce.

IIRC one of the 4 wickets was Ben Scott sent in at No 3, which I don't recall from any other match.
