1907/08 - Melbourne, 2nd Test
1, 2, 3, 4, 6 & 7 January
England won by one wicket
After six days of cricket, the result hinged on one final moment that prevented the first tied Test.
The match had an ebb-and-flow that saw each side hold an advantage at various stages.
England had initially capitalised on Australia's modest start with the bat.
But by the fifth day, Australia were in the ascendancy.
England had made slow and steady progress after setting out to make 282 to win, and at 209 for eight their efforts looked shot to pieces.
However, Sydney Barnes, ably assisted by his lower order colleagues put up stout resistance to close in on victory.
And it was Barnes who was the catalyst for the last-ball mayhem when he pushed his shot out into the covers.
He ran but Arthur Fielder stood rooted in his crease before belatedly setting off.
But Australian hopes disappeared as Gervys Hazlitt had a rush of blood in the field, hurling a fierce throw wide, when a gentle lob would have sufficed, to seal England's only win in a series Australia otherwise dominated.
