    Mark Greatbatch - 146* vs. Australia @ Perth 1989.

    The prick batted for 11 hours to save the test.

    Greatbatch was always a bit of a dick. Although I watched him hit Waqar Younis straight back over his head for six first ball of an ODI once, so he wasn't a complete dick. Waqar was pushing off from the boundary fence and bowling at ludicrous speed. Fun days.

    Going on to make 136 after being dropped giving fielders catching practice half a dozen-ish times. What a temperament!

    Kapil Dev, 119 vs Australia, Chennai 1986

    The follow-on saving effort in the second tied test was a typical Kapil blitzkrieg scattering the billboards around the chepauk stadium. one of the billboards was for a Tamil film to be released in the following month. I met the producer of that picture 20 odd years after his advertisements took a pounding from Kapil's 21 boundaries. He attributed the 3 day run of that film to Kapil's knock, without which he believes the film would have folded after the first show.
