To start off this conversation, it suffices to say that the just-concluded World Cup was a treasure trove of great batsmanship. We saw those great hundreds from Rohit Sharma and so many of English players- including Bairstow, Morgan, Root and Roy among the few.
Their handy skills with the bat hung out their opponents to dry.
But was it all? What about other knocks that weren’t perhaps highly rated but were from the top drawer?
I’d reckon, personally, Faf du Plessis’ 100 against Australia in South Africa’s final league game was a top knock. He was a fine balance of aggression and defensive play.
What do you reckon?
