On this day (August 7) in 2005, the world was treated to one of the most iconic and poignant images in cricket from probably the most memorable Test match in the long and storied history of the game. Shown here, Andrew Flintoff consoling Brett Lee after England took the final wicket to win on a nail-biting fourth day at Edgbaston of the second Test against Australia.
The cricket world often wonders what Flintoff said, as if he dispensed one of the great pearls of wisdom. The reality was more mundane. "It came out of my mouth, it's nothing profound is it?!" said Flintoff. "It's not gonna be something life-changing!" Lee has a vague recollection. "It was something like, 'Awesome game, bad luck, I thoroughly enjoyed it.'"
