    Best batting display by an associate batsman?

    Ten Doeschate's 119 vs England? Or Kevin O'Brien's 113 vs England? or any other similar innings

    Personally I rate John Davison's 75 runs off 62 balls vs NZ as the best. There are many such memorable performances by some of the associate batsmen, which 1 do you rate as the best?

    I honestly think O'Brien's innings against England is one of the best batting displays full stop, let alone by an associate.

    O'briens.

    Ten Doeschate is a saffer anyway, doesn't count.
    Batsman I tolerate: V. Richards, S. Tendulkar, E. Morgan, N. Hussain. KEVIN O F******* BRIEN

    Ten Doeschate's inning was equally good, a comparatively poor bowling line of of Netherlands meant that they lost the game, but the way he built his innings and the composure he showed was something you don't see that often from a player who doesn't get to play such high pressure games regularly.

    Agree with this and Cusack who was at the other end deserves a lot of credit too for his role in the partnership when the game was basically lost.

    Gavin Hamilton put together an entire series of performances for Scotland in a world cup including some pretty good innings. I can also remember Steve Tikolo playing some good knocks too.

    That was one of those games where you will remember where you were when you watched that innings unfold.
