But what followed the amazing catch was also a classic Ashes moment.
The image of the whole English team surrounding Pat Cummins - who was soaking up the intense pressure in fading light - that had fans around the world gushing over the contest.
Cummins was able to hold off the English onslaught to force the first draw at Lord’s since 1997.
