The #1 moment in Boxing Day Test history

It's a bit of a strange feel this year.


Virat Kohli has gone home and India scored 36 in the second innings in Adelaide - it's hard to get too excited.


But, it is the Boxing Day test after all - the great tradition.


There's been some wonderful moments throughout the history of the Boxing Day Test - this year it'll only get 30,000 fans through the gates due to COVID.


But the best of the bunch is obvious.


Shane Warne's 700th wicket - Boxing Day 2006.


He'd nabbed his 699th wicket with the final wicket to seal the Ashes in Perth, he then announced his retirement prior to the Boxing Day test with the Ashes already in the bag.


The script was written.


The hype was enormous and as they say, the rest is history.



Warney of course knocked over the England opener Andrew Strauss for his 700th wicket and then ran around the MCG like a school kid.


He went to pick up 5-for on Day 1, cleaning up the England tail and his old mate Kevin Pietersen to help guide Australia to 4-0 in the series heading to Sydney.


This is far and away the best moment in the history of Boxing Day Test's, it's clear day light to second.


What I would give to be able to watch one more spell from the King at the 'G.
