    Daren Powell batting more than an hour and Fidel Edwards batting more than half an hour to save WI v England at St. John's last year.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    This was a serious post:

    Ponting's @ OT in 2005 must be up there.

    That's match winning not saving though.

    Both saving and winning. He saved it first and then stayed out there to make it a winning knock. He hit that when India were following on.

    Haha, Powell's biggest achievement in that innings was being bad enough that none of his horrid attempts at a pull shot actually connected.

    Immediately thought of Athers too.
