Top Ashes Moments

skysports.com wants your help to find the Greatest Ashes Moment ever!

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 1974-1994 and the two to make it through to the final vote both came from that year and were achieved by that all-rounder - England's Ian Botham.

This week we're looking at what will surely be a hotly-contested period - 1997 to 2011.

The first option is our very own Nasser Hussain's 207 at Edgbaston in 1997, followed by Dean Headley's six wickets at Melbourne in 1998 as Australia were bowled out for just 162.

The other choices, in chronological order, are:

- Mark Butcher's career-best unbeaten 173 at Headingley in 2001

-Steve Waugh hitting the final ball of the day for four to post a century at Sydney in 2003

- England's nerve-shredding Edgbaston victory of 2005

- Adam Gilchrist's 57-ball ton at Perth in 2006

- England's rear-guard at Cardiff in 2009, finished off by James Anderson and Monty Panesar

- Anderson, Tremlett and Bresnan blow Australia away for 98 on day one of the 2010 Boxing Day Test

- Peter Siddle's hat-trick on his birthday at Brisbane in 2011

- Cook completes his epic 2010/11 series with 189 in the final Test as England win the Ashes in Australia for the first time since 1986/87

Pot Three - Results

In Week Three we asked you to vote for your favourite moment from the years 1974-1994.

Shane Warne's 'ball of the century' to Mike Gatting in 1993 attracted plenty of support but it was Warney's misfortune to be grouped in a pot that included the 1981 heroics of his great chum Beefy.

England duly came out on top, with Botham's 149no at Headingley and his subsequent 5-11 at Edgbaston attracting most votes - in that order.

Those two unforgettable 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.

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.

f you want to take six points off Arsenal, then that's a great strike force. Can't imagine either of them showing much for the rest of the season though...
