136 vs Pakistan did not win India the match which is why I think it is at #119 and not in top 25. However his best knock I think was 155 in SA in Sehwag's debut match

In the end though this is a statistical measure so doesn't take into account the stuff about context etc. which really makes an innings great. Otherwise Ponting's 156 and possibly Clarke's 151 (the two best innings by an Aus player I've seen live) would be much, much higher IMO.

Re: afridi, good joke ..... Nice innings, something that is 'forgotten', but better than the 136 ? hell no !
I think Sachin's 136 was his best.. And the 114 or something he made in Perth in 1992 as his second best. The Capetown knock, while good, is nowhere near these two in my opinion. And there was his 150 odd in Bloemfontein when he batted with Sehwag on debut, think that was much better than the CapeTown knock which was on a flattened out track.
I think Wasim was bowling quite a bit better than what you are making him out to be. It wasn't just flashes of brilliance, not quite his very best, but still bowling pretty well.
Reg Saqlain, yeah, he was the most threatening easily
