...moments to remind us why we love this game....my nomination is Mark Taylor for refusing to pass Don Bradmans high score as a mark of respect.

I do also remember when the great Sunil Gavaskar made his 30th century and broke Sir Don's record.

Sunny heard something from the back of the stump (sorry it was not sledging).
Jeff Dujon, the West Indian keeper, asked for the bat and Gavaskar gifted the bat right away. Dujon received the bat in a manner that he was being knighted.(on his kneel and all). Great gesture!

For whom does your nomination go?
