    Ted Dexter's 70 off 73 balls against WI at Lord's in 1963. A brilliant display of strokeplay against Hall and Griffith that set England up for a win in a low scoring match.

    Len Hutton's 37 out of 49 in Sydney on 1946 - a little gem of an innings that showed just how electrifying Hutton could be when he let himself go.

    ...or his 62 not out in this rather bizarre game

    Ramnaresh Sarwan's 107 not out against South Africa on an extremely tricky surface at Port of Spain. Everyone remembers Lara's remarkable 196 in the 1st innings, but Sarwan's second innings effort was just as amazing. Scoring 107 out of a total of 194. Like most of Ronnie's centuries, it was extremely pleasing on the eye. He was batting on a completely different level to everyone else.

    Minnows are not known to produce great bowlers.Neither SL managed to do it as minnows. But Ravi Rathnayake was a good seamer, very tall and moved the ball around. In this game, against Pakistan in Sialkot 1985, Rathnayake produced 24 overs of relentless torture against a formidable Pakistani side taking 8/83. Most of that 83 runs came through third man and off chinese cuts.

    Ponting's 78 which just ended. Just bossed it on a seaming deck from ball one. Bowling not great but conditions tough.

    Give it a chance to be rated IMO. If it turns out to be the innings that retains Australia the Ashes it'll go down with a fair bit of applause IMO.

    For conditions to be tough it requires the bowlers to be attempting to exploit them, rather than bowling to deliberately waste 'em, as England apparently were.

    Make no mistake, Ponting smacked the nonsense he was dished-up with aplomb, but in favourable conditions it was exactly the sort of bowling you'd pray for.

    See, you've forgotten already.

    Agree the bowling was poor though.

    - Michael Hussey: 122 vs SA 2005/06 - Let's see, Australia were 0-0 and Hussey only had Glenn McGrath for company. Australia were 9/248, which was a sub-par score, although the conditions were somewhat helpful to bowlers. Hussey was dropped early and then went on a blitz. The end result? 355 all out and valuable momentum snatched.
    - Ricky Ponting: twin centuries vs SA 2005/06 - The first century kept Australia in the game, whilst the second turned what could've been a difficult chase into an utter cakewalk. SA's bowlers were crap, admittedly, but it was a remarkable knock nonetheless.
