    Check the latest update. It is after Gooch.

    Laxman, though, well...

    The fact that Botham scored all his runs with the tail makes it even more miracolous, for mine.

    Botham had also lost the captaincy, and made a 'pair' in the previous test match at Lords. To then take on Lillee, Lawson and Alderman on an atrocious pitch was therefore inspirational and something extra special.

    Both Gooch and Laxman were in excellent form and batting on flat tracks in comparison.

    Interesting to see where Warner ends up on this list assuming India collapse pretty quickly tomorrow. The quality of batsmen in this test included three of the very best with Ponting, Dravid, Tendulkar plus Sehwag, Hussey, Clarke, and Laxman.

    The innings against New Zealand didn't quite make it, but this one should.

    Ah. Win/loss again? Fair enough since it was 4th innings.

    One innings scoring half the team's runs despite being 4th man out at waay over a run a ball, and his individual score higher than both of the oppositions innings? Yeah.

    Meant PF Warner's ranking of 29th, which was a winning Test.

    Warner's innings rated a slightly disappointing 15.68.

    The main reasons being that his team was never under any pressure during his innings, i.e. the fall of the first wicket was when the score was already past 200, and he scored no runs batting with the lower half of the order.

    I know this is about test innings, but any way to find out how high would this javed innings would be if it was a test match? Its a close defeat but he got 200* out of a total of 311

    Hmm, a bit disappointing. Guess it shows just how hard it is to break into the list.

    How much, if at all, does the strike rate count in this?
