My Life : Innings that I like and Dislike

By aparajithl

There are innings where we see batsmen score very quickly and smashes opponents out of the park and other side we also come across batters who plays really slowly something like taking 400 balls to score 100 runs,these things happens quite regularly in test cricket.Coming to fastest innings,my personal favourite is Astle`s 168 ball 222 against England.He was definitely one of the best hitters in the game and that innings was quite excellent.Having been set a daunting task of 550, black caps were on the back foot losing wicket at regular intervals. Then came Astle to counter attack English bowlers.Even though he couldnt win the match for the team but he did win the minds and hearts of millions of cricket fans with his brilliant knock..

On the other hand, innings such as Dravid`s irritating knocks of 5(66) and 16(144) in the boxing day test in MCG eventually let the team down .It will definitely count as one of the slowest innings he has ever played.But then,he got his form back right in the 3rd test at perth.
