    Kohli.

    Surprised his Edgbaston knock or the Adelaide ton from 2014 didn't make the list.

    EDIT : Also, Kallis's 2nd innings knock against India at Cape Town 2011.

    Absence of Borderís 98* and 100* away to the WI in 1984 makes a mockery of what is otherwise an exceptional exercise in weighted analysis.

    I think as a rule you need at least 100 runs so only one of those innings had a chance anyway

    Interesting that Dean Jones fabled 210 didn't make it but his 184 in a dead rubber did.

    I know you can't account for the heat in your formula but I'd still thought it might push it.

    Is the state of the series taken into account at all? And is the fact that his 210 came in a tie and not a win quite damning? Are they nearly all innings scored in wins?

    I think he loses some points on a couple of things based on the criteria in the OP. For example, they were 6 other tons scored in the game. The highest partnership he was involved in was just 77, albeit with the 10th wicket. The S/R is only a minor part of the overall score, but it very much seems the S/R is why the innings was so beloved at the time, as laid out in Wisden

    A record of these facts is a necessary preliminary to a description of the amazing batting which followed from McCabe and gave such an epic turn to the game. Six wickets were down for 194 and then McCabe, assisted in turn by three left-hand batsmen - Barnett, O'Reilly and McCormick - altered the whole aspect of affairs. In a little less than four hours, McCabe scored 232 out of 300 - his highest score in a Test match. His driving was tremendously hard, he hooked short balls with certainty and power, one off Farnes yielding a six, and he showed real genius in batting Hammond's efforts to keep him away from the bowling. While McCabe was running riot, the England captain delayed calling for the new ball and took other measures in the hope of keeping down runs, but the Australia, having completed his first hundred in two hours, twenty minutes, proceeded to score 4's much more readily. Wright was hit for 44 runs off three successive overs. Although he traveled so fast, McCabe did not offer a real chance, but once Edrich made a plucky effort to hold a ball hooked with terrific power. In the last ten overs bowled to him, McCabe took the strike in eight and hit 16 of his thirty-four 4's and in a last wickets stand of 77 with Fleetwood-Smith he scored 72 in 28 minutes. His glorious innings ended in a fitting way for in attempting a big hit off Verity he skied the ball to cover.

    Anyone have any theories why these absurdly good innings have been rising in frequency in recent years.

    More test batsman are capable of batting aggressively. Clobbering sixes with everyone on the fence on a 4th day pitch was considered almost impossible until the last decade or so.

    I reckon Stokes’ today almost stems from the amount of one day cricket he’s played. When Broad got out he basically thought “**** it” for a few overs and backed himself to hit any bowler for 6. Then when it got closer he improvised a bit (ramp then switch hit) because that’s where the gaps were.

    Just waiting for stephen to assess it as downhill skiing now.

    Why Pereraís innings is slightly better?

    1. Played for a weaker team

    2. Played in away conditions

    3. Played against a stronger bowling lineup

    4. It was SLís first win ever in SA

    5. Pereraís innings was flawless and had no chances

    6. Perera scored 50% of the runs. Stokes scored 37% of the runs

    7. In Pereraís case, the second highest score was 48. In Stokesís case, two others scored fifties.

    Unlike his last hundred which had a healthy dose of luck involved, only a fool would argue that this hundred was anything other than very special.

    The commonality in both cases is that he gritted it out until batting got a lot easier and then cashed in, instead of shrugging his shoulders and saying it's all too hard like most batsmen.
