    Oh fair enough.

    Much of my attention on that series was down to the spot-fixing controversy, so I didn't know that much about the detail.
    5-0

    RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012

    Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.

    Does Aravinda's 105 against Waqar and Wasim (95 coming off in the 1st session, first day), whom he tore apart on a green pitch doesn't qualify as a great innings? His 167 at Brisbane and 267 at Wellington may be the ones that are indicated here.

    A rapid 127 out of 226 vs. Wasim and Waqar in 1994 (14.43 points)
    1st Test: Sri Lanka v Pakistan at Colombo (PSS), Aug 9-13, 1994 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo

    143* chasing 326 in the 4th innings vs. a decent Zimbabwe outfit in 1998 (15.29)
    2nd Test: Sri Lanka v Zimbabwe at Colombo (SSC), Jan 14-18, 1998 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo

    The Brisbane knock fetched 12.02 points, thereby just missing the cut, whilst the 267 scored 11.78 points.
    Greatest Ever Test XI: JB Hobbs, L Hutton, DG Bradman (c), IVA Richards, BC Lara, GS Sobers, AC Gilchrist (wk), Imran Khan, RJ Hadlee, MD Marshall, SK Warne 12th man: M Muralitharan


    Favorite XI: WG Grace, VT Trumper, IVA Richards, DCS Compton, FMM Worrell (c), AC Gilchrist (wk), CL Cairns, SK Warne, FS Trueman, SE Bond, T Richardson 12th man: H Larwood

    Just out of curiosity, what was the highest score of the best innings in your great innings list?

    He's asking which was the best innings. i.e the innings with the highest score.

    Oh, okay. I thought he was asking the highest score, i.e. 400* by Lara.

    Anyway, the highest rating was achieved by Brian Lara against Australia at Bridgetown in 1999 (25.47).
