#2 432 – England lost to Australia by an innings and 25 runs (2001)

England Australia Kennington Oval 2001
England crumbled in the second innings

Australia won the toss and chose to bat first at Kensington Oval. They posted a colossal 641 and that too, at a run-rate of 4.21 giving them a lot of time. That was thanks to centuries from the Waugh brothers and one by Justin Langer.

In reply, England scored 432 in their first innings, thanks to a ton by Mark Ramprakash. However, they couldn’t save the follow-on falling short by 9 runs. Asked to follow on, they were skittled out for 184. Shane Warne won the Player of the Match for a massive match haul of 11 wickets, including a 7-for in England’s first innings.
