    Yo Dawg, I might have asked this before, but do your ratings take into account whether a Test was a dead rubber at all? As an example, Butcher's hundred was masterful, but it was played when the Ashes were lost. Likewise Jones' 180 odd in Sydney against England. He used to frustrate the crap out of me when he did that, like his Adelaide 200 against the Windies.

    Aye. For example, in the deciding match of a five-test rubber, you get 1 point. In a dead rubber, you get 0 points. Also, if you team eventually went on to lose the series, you get 0 points.


    Here is another update. Some minor tweaks. Less points given for 4th inns chases and 3rd inns draws. Points given for runs made with the lower order have also been adjusted.

    I'll gladly take requests for any innings of interest.

    No wonder I feel a privileged cricket fan. I watched three of the top four digs on TV. Lara's was ridiculous, Botham's had an air of "**** it, we can't win. I'll have a lash" which came off, and Laxman's is the best innings I've watched, live or on TV. Best live knock I've seen probably Lara's 277. Sure the ball was wet but he was only ever going to get run out, and so it came to pass. What a player he was.

    Did you listen to Bradman's knock on the wireless?

    VVS WAFG. Expected more of his innings in the list tbh. What're the following innings rated? :

    167 in Sydney vs Australia
    73* in mohali vs Australia 2010
    96 vs SA Durban 2010
    148 vs Australia Adelaide 2003
    Century vs Sri Lanka in the 4th innings in 2010 (think it was Colombo)
    60 odd vs Australia Mumbai 2004

    Also that match where scores level with Windies, which India were comfortably losing.

    Ashwin played a good knock that innings too, right?


    Not suggesting a rating of Ashwin's knock but just to clarify if it was the same game...
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    Bradman, Lara and Sanga all appear three times in top 100. None from Tendulkar, Viv, Sobers, Steve Waugh and Hammond. Hmm, that makes Lara's and Sanga's average of 50 special since they play ATG knocks.
    Supporting players: Dinesh Chandimal, Roshen Silva, Kusal Janith, Nuwan Pradeep, Kasun Rajitha, Lahiru Kumara, Akila Dhananjaya, Dhananjaya de Silva

    It's a lot more than just a top 100, though. I consider an innings above 12.50 to be truly great, 10.00-12.49 to be an outstanding innings, and 7.50-9.99 to be a substantial contribution. You can suggest different phrases.

    Hmmmm why?

    I'd consider a batsman who consistently produces good innings more valuable than one who occasionally produces great ones. The first one helps you win more matches in the long term. Makes sense that guys like Waugh, Hammond and Sachin have no Top 100 knocks and yet are ATGs. They were key players in very successful sides, consistently producing the goods.

    You aren't a less special player for being consistent. That's just silly. I'd take a top order full of consistent if unspectacular batsmen over one full of inconsistent match-winning ones anyday.

    Lol I love how DoG has a Tendulkar subsection each time he updates the list in this thread, just to shut us up

    Doesn't need an 'outside the top 100' subsection because I assume his 6-fer at Adelaide would crack the top 100 bowling performances quite handily.
