    DoG's Test Innings and Bowling Performances. Updates thread.

    I thought I would put my test performances in one thread and post updates on the ratings of any substantial innings or bowling performances after each series.

    I'll start with posting the batting top 100. This has undergone minor adjustments and is now looking very good. New Zealanders in bold.

    This first post will be updated with each new entry into the top 100.

    Yep, always thought it should be very high. Shame no Sachin 136 though.

    Something not quite right when Kane's 242* is rated higher than Sangakkara's 203 in the first innings of the same match despite Sangakkara's runs being scored in trickier conditions and against a much stronger bowling attack. Probably the best innings I've seen since Sehwag's 200 v SRL in 2008. I mean, I know it's impossible to statistically factor things like pitch conditions and swing, and winning counts for a lot. But Sangakkara's innings was sublime - he single handedly set the match up for his side. It's not his fault that the rest of his team conspired to drop it.

    I don't think it's just the win that put it higher. The match situation for Williamson was absolutely dire, which has to count for a lot. It was basically game over if SL got him early.

    Sachin's 100 on a day 5 Chennai pitch chasing against England in 2008 isn't in the list? Maybe deserves to be.
    I am proud of this post.

    TBH, I thought the Sehwag salvo in the same innings was a better knock... Come on, even Yuvi batted sublimely on that track..

    I will tell you what knocks of Sachin should be there though.. The one where he took on Steyn in 2010.. THAT was special... Obviously the 136 is thrown around a lot but he made a 100 in Perth in 1992 that was even better IMO and there was his first test 100 in England when he and Manoj Prabhakar drew a game we should have really lost.

    Technically his century in SA against Steyn-in-the-form-of-his-life was his best, I agree. But that mightn't tick all the boxes for DoG's analysis.

    I guess Sachin's match-winning double century against Australia might be the highest-rated Tendulkar inning as per DoG, because that ticks almost all of his boxes.
