    Surprised no one has mentioned Collingwoods 120* in the CB series

    AB de Villiers in the World Cup against the Windies was a very good knock, especially when you consider he was in the last chance saloon re: his place in the team and also the injury he picked up near the end of the innings. He was clubbing huge sixes whilst almost literally playing on one leg, it was truly extraordinary.

    Pontings 2 knocks in the first 2 Ashes tests went a long way to setting the tone for the series.

    Agreed, that innings really was a cut above.

    Otherwise I think the efforts of Chanderpaul and Sangakkarra just about top the class for the last 12 months.

    Honourable mentions to Pieterson and Ponting during the ashes, Collingwood during the VB series, Damien Martyn during the Champions Trophy (was amazed how quickly everyone seemed to forget this tournament ever happened, with the build-up to the Ashes and all lol) and Hayden during the WC.

    Collingwood's 121*

    Not saying it was better than Gilchrist's world cup knock or mattered more, but i just love the way someone as unspectacular as Collingwood can produce innings of such brilliance like that,

    I'm with Richard on the ODIs -- Gilchrist's innings in the WC final, followed by Jayasuriya's absolute tonking on England in Headingley. I listened to the first on TMS while playing cards in the back of a battered old Land Rover, but managed to be there in the crowd for the latter.

    As far as Tests go, I didn't see much of Sanga's knocks against NZ. Big Shiv's knocks against England were immense in context, and (as Richard said), KP was the difference against SL at Edgbaston -- if not for that knock, Murali might have been able to conjure up a series win. My vote, however, goes to Collingwood's Ashes double-ton -- not one for the purists, but it was a great bit of batting nonetheless.

    If this thread were just a fortnight earlier, Jayawardene and Sangakkara's record partnership against SA would have come into play

    My 32 from 22 top score from number 9 will not be forgotten, name an Asian (I'm talking bout yellowies not brownies) who can do that :P


    Seriously though, there's been some killer performances, quick sum up: KP, M. Yousef, Jayawardene, Jayasuriya & Ponting for me did fantastic work with the bat. KP is England's best

    ODI cricket, almost automatically places it lower in peoples lists, regardless of how good the knock was.
