    In Tests a few that come to mind are Sangakkara's twin tons in NZ as Dasa mentioned (could easily be undervalued because of the low-key nature of the series); Kevin Pietersen's 142 against Lanka at Edgbaston (just over a year ago, but fits IMO), Gilchrist's blitzkreig at The WACA and Collingwood's double-century at Adelaide Oval. Hard to say definitively that any of those were the best TBH, but if I had to choose I'd go for Sangakkara.

    In ODIs the Gilchrist knock in the WC final or the Jayasuriya dissection of England's excuse for a bowling-attack at Headingley last summer stand-out above all for me. Grudging mention, obviously, to the Hayden 18whatever-it-was*.

    Richard totally off-topic but how did you become a accidental founder of Twenty20 cricket is boring society, it says anybody who posts in here will automatically become a member of the society so why did you say that if it was accident?

    It was deliberate from that thread onwards, but that the idea (and hence the thread) came about by accident, as a result of discussion in another thread.

    BTW, you'd have done better to quote my sig than that post to say that.

    Highlight the sig, press copy, go to "post reply", press the quote button in the prompt, and paste.

    Some great ones mentioned, particularly Lara's double agianst Pakistan. KP's neutering of Warne in the first innings at Adelaide was quite excellent as was Chanderpaul's recent exploits in getting the WI so close in the second innings of the third Test. However from an Australian perspective it'd have to be Ponting's first innings of 196 in the recent Ashes in Brisbane which really set the tone for the whole series. Was so good.

    I honestly think his 142 against Lanka at Edgbaston was better, and certainly turned-out more pivotal. His was the only significant score by an England batsman in the series, and the only time anyone looked really convincing on what was actually a very tricky pitch.

    Was amazing IMO, but short match highlights would struggle to do it justice. You'd need at least 3-hour-summaries of each day to realise just how he stood-out from the crowd.

    No, no, was meaning 3-hour highlights rather than 1-hour or 2-hour ones.

    Never saw it, didn't have Foxtel back then unfortunately, only got it in time for the Pakistan series.
