    The Greatest Test innings by a right-handed English batsman, born in South Africa, ag

    The Greatest Test innings by a right-handed English batsman, born in South Africa, against Australia in the last test of an Ashes series, in England at the Oval, in the Second Innings, in the Modern era?

    (This is in no way a blatant rip-off of a Zaremba style thread)

    Allan Lamb's century against the 1984 West Indians (I forget which Test) must surely be up there. But it probably has to be Tony Greig's knock at The 'Gabba against Lillee, Thomson and Walker in '74/75, all things considered.

    Seismic though those knocks were, I'd have little doubt that Lamb and Greig's were better.

    Probably take Trott's tbh. Orgasmic as Kapes's was, he did have a sizeable slice of luck early doors. Trott's was on debut, chanceless (I think) and in a game we needed to win.

    No doubt. I agree whole heartedly

    That was edited in after my post was made. The original post assumed that the thread-title, which had been truncated, posted this information.
