    Before the ****storm, may I just clarify that Tendulkar has a number of very good innings rated between 10.00 and 16.00, probably more than any other batsman given his longevity; but no truly great innings that would get into the top 100.

    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Close wins x1.35
    Wins x1.3
    Close draws x1.15
    Draws x1.1
    Losses x1

    Makes a substantial difference. Only 7 of the top 100 innings were played in ultimately losing causes.

    This is a serious request, albeit a huge ask, but any chance of naming the next 100 best innings, from 101 to 200? That would be very interesting to see, probably just as many great innings.

    Laxman's 167 at Sydney is rated too high IMO. The innings didn't achieve anything. Loss was written on the wall. Can't say if a batsman feels a lot f pressure when the outcome of the match is certain one way or the other.
