    Memorable knocks by International batsmen in non international matches

    Nowadays they play so much cricket that the Internationals hardly feature in domestic games of any kind, particularly first class.

    I came upon this interesting match while looking through Sachin's first class matches.

    The Home of CricketArchive

    It was the 00 season Ranji Trophy semi, Bombay vs Tamil Nadu. TN batted first and posted a huge total of 485. Bombay soon found themselves in huge trouble at 127-4. The rule is to either force an outright victory or gain a first innings lead to progress to the finals and Bombay's chances looked virtually nil on both counts.

    However the Master had different ideas.

    He combined with long time bud Kambli and then Amol Muzumdar to get the score to 370 odd, but with the dismissal of the latter, the wheels came off, and Bombay found themselves staring at the barrell at 472-9.

    Sachin, then went into overdrive, hogged almost entire strike and did manage to help Bombay across the first innings total. His silent partner fell immediately afterwards, having made 0 off 7 balls. Sachin remained notout on 233 with, his highest first class score then, with 5 sixes.

    TN had no option but to go for an outright win, but in the process were all out for 171 in the second innings, which Bombay chased down succesfully.

    Bombay bouyed by this, went on to take the trophy that season.

    Personally for Sachin, who admitted afterwards, it went a bit in taking off some of the pain off the Chepauk loss against Pakistan in which his heroic hundred failed to get India home in an epic chase.

    Bevan's 180 odd(185* iirc) in an OD game played for charity. His team lost but he made those runs while chasing.(Could be wrong though, memory is blurry)

    Shivnarine Chanderpaul's 303 not out at Sabina Park against Courtney Walsh will always be remembered in the Caribbean. It really was epic and against an extremely good attack on a fast pitch.

    One of Brian Lara's greatest innings that not everyone knows about took place against Jamaica in 1994 when he scored 180 out of a total of 257.

    Badani was brilliant in the game, really sad that he didn't get more chances.

    This one was maybe the greatest Ranji trophy final of all time. Sachin played a "Sehwag against England in Chennai" like innings, Vengsarkar nearly took Bombay home. They fell agonizingly short by 2 runs.

    Aravinda and his pull shot.
    For as long as there is limited overs cricket - of ten, twenty or fifty overs - there will remain the Sri Lankan spinners' mid-innings choke

    He was scary at his peak-some of his innings against Imran Khan and Akram were incredible.

    What a guy! If any subcontinental batsman had the least disdain for express pace, it was him.
