    Greatest. Innings. Ever.

    And its not even over yet!!!! In case you didnt know, the pidge - Glenn McGrath has just scored his maiden test 50 (100 anyone??)
    I know there is an Aussie vs NZ thread, but surely such a majestic innings deserves such an honour?
    Your thoughts on this innings, how if affected the match and if he can get to triple figures.

    This innings doesn't just deserve its own thread, it deserves its own damn forum. I went out to play cricket when he came in, and I came back and my dad told me he scored a 50. I replied "no seriously, what's New Zealand's score?" He replied "They haven't got McGrath yet out, I'm serious. He's on 54!"

    "I am very happy and it will allow me to have lot more rice."

    LOL, when i woke up this morning to check the score, i couldn't believe my eyes. I thought Cricinfo had made a mistake. Congrats to Glenn no doubt the rest of his team-mates will be hearing about it for a long long time!

    McGrath getting to triple figures? HaHaHa Lets not get tooooooooooo carried away......

    Promotion in the batting line-up maybe?

    Murali's highest score is 67, which is his only Test 50.

    I always had a suspicion he could bat a bit cos you hear these stories how he gets everyone to bowl at him in the nets and takes it quite serious. He just hasn't had too many chances at a long innings and at 11 when you go into bat your halr thinking about your bowling.

    I'd hate to be a NZ fan though, i remember when Murali got 67 against India, it was torture
