I was watching Aravinda's 66 in the 1996 World Cup semi final recently on youtube (I had the pleasure of watching it live too, and it was fantastic to watch it again). Sri Lanka were 2 down in the first over, the Calcutta crowd was going wild, and this guy comes in and he murders the bowling attack ruthlessly. I remember at one point the captain had a predominantly off-side field for him because of his cover drives, and what did he do? He moved over to the offside and smashed the bowlers on the leg side using his wrists. It was a brave, brave knock (no matter how good the pitch was for batting initially). The guy hit 14 boundaries for God's sake! http://www.cricinfo.com/ci/engine/current/match/65190.html Add yours (doesn't have to be a 194 or the fastest century in ODI's; context is key). After having watched so many ODI's over the years, I'm sure I'll come up with a few more.
