Laxman was particularly severe on Shane Warne, often coming down the pitch to hit warne against the spin, but equally positive against the pace of great Glenn McGrath and extremely talented Jason Gillespie. Laxman’s 281 runs, a new Test record for India, was scored quickly enough for Australia to be bowled out. Their defeat in this match and the next completed one of the great reversals of all time.

Top 10 Greatest Test Innings of all time, Ranked by Wisden

“cricinfo” says : Brian Lara’s unbeaten 153 against the Australians in Bridgetown is widely and justifiably regarded as the greatest chasing innings Test cricket has known. Australia dominated the opening three days of the Third Test. Steve Waugh set the tone with a rugged 199 as Australia scored 490. West Indies subsided to 98 for 6 before the fightback began with a partnership of 153 between Sherwin Campbell and Ridley Jacobs. Next day, West Indies continued their resurgence by bowling the Australians out for 146, leaving a target of 308 for victory.

When three early wickets fell that fourth evening, it seemed the cause was lost. Overnight Lara was two not out. West Indies’ position continued to deteriorate on Day Five till they were 105 for 5. Now Lara made his move, slipping through the gears, pressing hard upon the accelerator. Finley he got his team home, West Indies Won by 1 wicket. As Wisden put it, he had “guided his team to victory as though leading the infirm through a maze”.

1. Don Bradman – 270

  • RAJ

    I wanted to know whether Dravid’s 181 in support to Laxman’s 281 is among the Top 100 Wisden ranks or not

  • that innings of dravid is not in 100 best,

    • Chiranjit Ghosh

      Then shame on you wisden…you are not wise enough..

  • wisden also hasn’t included in top 100 innings, wasim akram’s 257* agains zimbabwe.

  • shaikh

    What about KP in ashes 2005

    • was one of best i know. but in this list i have presented innings that ranked wisden.

  • sid

    Hopeless list….no list is complete without Sehwag’s triple hundreds vs SA and Pak at more than run a ball…nobody can do that — not even Bradman!!!

    • Devesh Batra

      Sehwag’s innings were on Batsmen’s paradise pitches with nothing to lose. They don’t even rank near the ones shortlisted by Wisden – invention of the Internet and making it affordable to douchebags did mean we would have to deal with kids questioning Wisden – we should have known *sigh*
