Shane Watson reckons that taking a five-wicket haul in his first Lord's Test represents one of the most special moments of his career.
The Australian all-rounder finished with five for 40 and also created a little piece of history by becoming the first bowler to etch his name on the new Lord's honours board as Australia took control of the first Test against Pakistan.
Ricky Ponting's side finished the day on 100 for four in their second innings but hold a lead of 205 after Watson helped bowl Pakistan out for just 148 in 40.5 overs.
Watson made the honours board at the Melbourne Cricket Ground when he scored 120 against Pakistan in December but said Wednesday's effort was more special because it was unexpected.
"I have been working on a few things in my bowling because in the last few months my bowling hasn't been where I wanted it to be and for it all to come together today was brilliant," said Watson.
"To get up on the honours board in my first MCG Test was a special moment. To get my name up there with all the legends who have played was pretty amazing.
"I had been looking up at both boards but especially the bowling board and seeing Keith Miller up there, who got 10 wickets in a Test match here.
"He is someone who continues to inspire me, with what he was able to achieve in the game.
"I was aiming to get a hundred at Lord's in my first Test here. Unfortunately that wasn't meant to be - but to get on it as a bowler, it will take a while to get my head around it."
Day to forget
In contrast, it was a day to forget for Ponting, who fell for a duck, trapped lbw to Mohammad Asif.
Ponting averages just 17 in four Tests at Lord's but his career average over 145 Tests is 55, with Watson at a loss to explain his skipper's poor performances at the home of cricket.
He said: "It must be one of those things. He is one of the greats of the game. He has scored runs all around the world and in all conditions."
Meanwhile, Ponting has been exonerated following Tuesday's collision with Pakistan's teenage fast bowler Mohammad Aamer.
Aamer received a warning from match referee Chris Broad as to his future conduct and team-mate Azhar Ali admitted Pakistan were "a little surprised" that the bowler had been spoken to.
Pakistan ensured Australia did not have things all their own way by taking a flurry of late wickets.
However, with Simon Katich one run short of his second half century of the match, Watson is confident that Australia are in a good position.
"We knew we had done a pretty good job getting just over 250 on that wicket, with the way the conditions were. It was swinging and seaming a lot yesterday and Pakistan bowled well," he said.
"We knew if we bowled how we wanted to we could do some damage because of the inexperience they have at key spots in the batting order.
"We are going to have to repeat that at some stage tomorrow again and hopefully the conditions stay as they are, that the sun stays behind the clouds so we can keep moving the ball around."
Even so, Azhar said Pakistan have not given up hope of victory.
"Anything under 300 is chaseable," he said.
"We didn't bat that well in the first innings but hopefully we can get things right in the second innings. I am hopeful.
"This is a day to forget. It happens in cricket. We want to come back now, to forget it and look forward."
