For Sunday’s spectacular climax, we will be joined by England skipper Michael Vaughan, team-mates Kevin Pietersen, Marcus Trescothick and Steve Harmison and Australia great Shane Warne for a special watchalong.

Catch the show from 12pm on Sky Sports Cricket as Vaughan, Warne and co reflect on how Australia moved to the brink of a remarkable win – before Harmison removed Michael Kasprowicz to seal victory for England.

The Baggy Greens began the day on 175-8, requiring a further 107 runs to move 2-0 up in the series, and almost did it as Warne, Brett Lee and Kasprowicz frustrated England with lower-order runs.

But with three runs required, Harmison had Kasprowicz – who had earlier been dropped by Simon Jones – given out caught behind by umpire Billy Bowden to spark wild England celebrations and break Australia hearts.
