Which moment will you vote for in our third poll?

We are running a series of polls throughout June, giving you the chance to assess 40 of the outstanding displays and occasions in clashes between England and Australia since the battle for the urn began.

Last week we asked you to pick your favourite moment from 1948-1973 and the two to make it through to the final vote were Fred Trueman and Jim Laker.

This week we're looking at 1974-1994 and the contenders are: Dennis Lillee and Jeff Thomson take 57 wickets in 1974/75 series; Geoff Boycott scores his 100th first-class century; Ian Botham's 149no at Headingley 1981; Bob Willis' 8-43 at Headingley 1981; Ian Botham's 5-11 at Edgbaston in 1981; David Gower and Allan Lamb team up to dismiss Wayne Phillips in 1985; Ian Botham smashes Merv Hughes for 22 in an over in Brisbane; Mark Taylor and Geoff Marsh put on 301-0 on day one of the 1989 Trent Bridge Test; Shane Warne's 'ball of the century' in 1993; Shane Warne's hat-trick in the 1994 Boxing Day Test

Pot Two - Results

In Week Two we asked you to vote for your favourite moment from the years 1948-1973.

Two English bowlers came out on top - Fred Trueman for becoming the first man to take 300 Test wickets with the dismissal of Neil Hawke in 1964, and Jim Laker for his incredible 19 wicket haul in the 1956 Old Trafford Test.

Those two moments will now go forward to the final vote, which opens on Monday July 8, to discover the overall winner.

Remember, all the finalists will start from zero in the final week, so you need to log on again to vote for your favourite.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
