    That's the one I meant. Hilarious that Pakistan won by 350 odd runs anyway.

    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.

    Upon review - I think that Knott's first innings top score of 82 (only 121 balls) deserves a mention too.

    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.

    Was this innings on TV in Australia at the time? For some reason I remember being glued to the radio for all of the Blewett+Waugh partnership.

    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.

    Agree with MWaugh's 126 being a bit hidden by SWaugh's knock.

    Blewwy's 214 still not on YT I note.
