    Butcher's 173* was superb too.

    Pietersen's best innings was Arguably at Headingley too V South Africa 2012

    Stokes' innings today was a better innings than Botham's though

    Boycott 100th 100 worth mentioning too if only as he would.

    No contest. Botham’s started out as a hit and hope with no pressure.

    If we’re straying from the poll, Bradman 173 not out 1948.

    Might just be because it feels so fresh but I’m not sure there’s ever been a better innings than Stokes’s anywhere. Facing a genuinely excellent attack on a very tough pitch in the 4th innings with the Ashes on the line already puts it up there. Having to get the last 70 runs by clearing boundary riders while farming the strike, I don’t know how you even get close to that.

    It just had basically every facet of a great innings really, apart from not being chanceless.

    Greatest at Headingley sure, but behave. Lara 153* in a similar situation was an almost faultless knock against Warne and McGrath on a worse pitch with Courtney Walsh at the other end.

    Fair shout. That one looked much better too, being by Lara.

    Can’t be too many others though.

    Kusal Perera did this just a few months ago

    https://www.espncricinfo.com/series/...-in-sa-2018-19

    Stokes, Lara are Perera are all tied for first place imo (at the very least among 4th innings knocks) . All 3 pulled off impossible chases against quality attacks.
