Harmison's 43 not out against the West Indies.
Simon Katich carried his bat through this innings. If you want an idea of the conditions, look at the luminaries who fell around him and the fact Johnson got a 5fer.

Dravid's 70 odd against Windies..
When asked what the IPL means for seasoned pros like him, Dravid smiled and neatly deflected the question: it is a different world altogether, he said. "The other day I walked the ramp as part of a promotional event. When I started my career, I never imagined this would be part of a cricketer's life!"
"I strongly feel the ICC should take action to ban the doosra since it just cannot be bowled legally. Ashley Mallett has said the 'doosra is nothing but chucking' and Australian spinners, including Shane Warne, have raised an alarm against coaching it in Australia." - BISHAN BEDI (2010)
i think all knocks by english, aussie, indian and nz are overrated by nature because of the forum demographics plus the english and aussie writers dominate cricket writing and they rarely watch anything outside their countries so they are even more overrated

Gooch's 154 not out - the single best innings I have ever seen.
I know it's rated, but gets drowned somewhat by other knocks...
Smith's 100 vs australia in 1st Test: South Africa v Australia at Cape Town, Nov 9-11, 2011 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo for a recent one. Clarke's 151 is obviously rated but not so much Smith's matching winning knock and cool head. Esecially with Amla giving up chances like candy up the other end.

Greg Blewett's 214 vs South Africa 1997. Sachin fans talk about his 169 a few months earlier vs same bowlers, well Blewett hammered them even more gloriously. Stunning innings.
I really think that Mark Waugh's 126 at Jamaica is an underrated innings due to his brother scoring his highest Test score of 200. Mark Waugh's innings was sublime and he really took it to the bowlers, especially early on when we were in a pressure situation.
SWaugh was lucky early with Browne's famous dropped catch and then he produced a top knock but it was MWaugh who really set up the match for Australia in a match which really did feel as though it was the start of a champion country passing on the baton to a new champion.
Yes the SA tour in 97 was on foxtel.
