Pot Four - Results

In Week Four we asked you to vote for your favourite moment from the years 1997-2011 and two outstanding England performances took centre stage - the dramatic victory at Edgbaston in 2005 and the demolition of Australia on day one of the fourth Ashes Test at Melbourne.

The moment when wicketkeeper Geraint Jones soared to his left to grab a tough gloved chance offered by Mike Kasprowicz off the bowling of Steve Harmison with Australia so close to a tenacious victory grabbed almost 30 per cent of your votes.

The battle for second spot was considerably closer, though, with the heroic last-wicket stand between James Anderson and Monty Panesar at Cardiff in 2009 almost making the cut.

However, it was edged out by that fantastic England seam performance at the Boxing Day Test which rocked the Aussies to their very core.
