    Battle of the Test Innings II

    It's been 7 years since the last one, so why not?

    Nominate away. Won't run this straight away, I will start it on the 7th August. Someone to remind me, as I may forget
    5-0

    RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012

    Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.

    Some good ones:

    Brian Lara 153* at Barbados, 1999 (vs Australia)
    VVS Laxman 281 at Kolkata, 2001 (vs Australia)
    Michael Clarke 151 at Johannesburg, 2011 (look at Australia's second innings score and South Africa's first innings score!)
    Graham Gooch 154* at Headingley, 1991 (vs West Indies)
    Ian Botham 149* at Headingley, 1981 (vs Australia)

    More to come when I can think of them.

    Ashton Agar, 98 vs England, Trent Bridge, 2013

    and of course, the greatest match winning innings of all time. Especially considering it was his only century in all first class cricket.

    Just do a battle of the innings since the last battle then imo.

    That's not how every other replayed battle has worked.

    It'll just end up like the previous one with a few new additions which is a bit boring. The few new additions are what makes the battle interesting so we may as well just focus on them. That's just me of course.

    BotM is a lot different because even older posters can change.

    Bradman's second innings 270 at the MCG, 1937 has to be in the top 10.

    3rd Test: Australia v England at Melbourne, Jan 1-7, 1937 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo

    Special mention to Maurice Leyland who made a fighting century in the same match. Very under-rated batsman.

    Tim McIntosh - 136 vs. West Indies @ Napier 2008.

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