Andrew Strauss joked that ” It was my own personal milestone”.
Brett Lee admitted that he wanted to get it over with as soon as possible ” I wanted Warnie to get a bowl early, get his 700th and then go on to smash the Poms”
Ricky Ponting, the captain on that historic day also saw the anxiousness that was surrounding the momentous occasion and remembered how the Warne’s Melbourne crowd had given him a tough time, chanting he local boy’s name so that he could have a bowl early.
Eventually, Warne bowled Strauss, through the gate to spark of wild celebrations in the sellout MCG crowd.
