I have gone for Lara's because it was in the fourth innings against a very very good bowling attack and that performance changed the mood of the entire team which was sliding down rapidly

But it was almost impossible to not vote for Stokes and Botham and Laxman.

Good poll!

You think there aren't 10 to 15 ATG second innings knocks in wins?

You've just selected them at random
I selected knocks which are most memorable. Whereas for 1st and 2nd innings I think every ATG batsman has 1 ATG knock.

In 3rd and 4th innings number of ATG knocks are relatively low.

All the more reason then why you should have included TPC's 142 in the first test of the 2019 Ashes tbh

After this poll , will do one for the ATG knocks in 1st and 2nd innings

Will include Steve Waugh 200 and Steve Smith 142 in that one.

Botham's was a matchchanging innings but he likely caught the bowlers a bit unaware. I dont think the pressure was quite there.

Lara and Stokes were somewhat lucky to survive and their innings weren't completely chanceless.

Smith wasn't against as great an attack.

Laxman's had a tremendous feat of batting an entire day against an ATG attack, though I think the pitch was more batting friendly than the others.

It was in the third innings. His 144 was in the first innings of the same match

Do posters deduct marks for Lara being dropped or Stokes getting off for a lbw and runout? For me, they take away from the innings' gloss a bit.
