Matt Hayden 197 on day one against England at the Gabba, 2002/03.
Andrew Symonds 143*
haven't seen one, closest has been ponting's 99 v South Africa at the MCG, 2008/09
Think it was Bryan Young v Sri Lanka in Dunedin in about 1996. We were in a corporate box when he bought up his 200, but we had to watch it on the TV in the corporate box, due to the smoke from the couch fires on the terrace below completely blocking our view...
The first century I saw live, at the ground, was JG Wright's 185:
1st Test: New Zealand v India at Christchurch, Feb 2-5, 1990 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo
Although, Hadlee's 400th Test wicket is the thing I will always remember from that match. First bowler in history to take 400 test wickets. Bishan Bedi coming out onto the ground to congratulate Hadlee personally was a very special moment.
First ODI ton was Gordon Greenidge 104:
2nd ODI: New Zealand v West Indies at Auckland, Mar 21, 1987 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo
