Test cricket has always been full of psychological battles , and that recent innings from Alistair Cook reminded us all that it's all about the long game. Cook, out of sorts for so long, rediscovered his form by forgetting the coaches' advice. A rescue innings matured into a great innings - so here are my top five rescue innings in cricket - at least in my opinion. Innings that have saved games from almost unwinnable positions. Some are odd choices, some are obvious, but they were all highly memorable.
5. Mark Butcher, 173 vs Australia at Headingley

England were doing all they could to lose yet another Ashes test, with Australia setting 315 to win in the final innings. Atherton and Trescothick were already out with hardly any runs on the board. Up stepped Mark Butcher, scoring an imperious 173 off just 227 balls on the final day to single-handedly win the test for England. Messrs McGrath and Warne were made to look average [url=]Anth... Fasano Jersey
, no mean feat against two bowlers in their prime.

4. Ian Botham, 149 vs Australia at Headingley

A coincidence, yes, but another Ashes test at Headingley produced one of the most memorable rescue innings in the history of the game. With England having been forced to follow-on by Australia, the wickets tumbled. Ian Botham was joined by Graham Dilley at 135-7, and the two put on 117 in just 88 balls - Botham knocking the Aussie bowlers for six after six, and finally carving out a narrow lead. Australia were all out for just 111, and England won the game thanks to one of the most audacious rescue innings in the history of the game.

3. Kevin Pietersen DaQuan Jones Jersey , 158 vs Australia, The Oval

Another Ashes test, and another final day thriller in which England were wobbling dangerously. Needing a draw to win the Ashes for the first time in nearly twenty years, England had lost early wickets and needed a long innings from someone to hold off the resurgent Australians. Up stepped youngster Pietersen, in his first Test series, to smash the Australian attack all around the Oval with an innings as audacious as it was skilful. A dropped catch by Shane Warne only added to the drama - this was a hugely dramatic day for English cricket, and one of the most memorable.

2. Michael Atherton, 185 vs South Africa ... Massaquoi Jersey , Johannesburg

Requiring 479 to win in the last five innings of the game, England appeared well and truly beaten in Johannesburg. All thoughts of winning the game were banished, and Michael Atherton, England captain, settled in to play his trademark defensive game. A battle ensued with South African fast bowler Allan Donald, who stared down Atherton ball after ball, with one of the most aggressive performances of his career. Bouncer followed bouncer, and Atherton just shrugged them all off effortlessly. He faced 492 balls - an innings in the old style that denied South Africa victory Hakeem Nicks Jersey , and hurt them hard - and he felt fresh afterwards. Amazing.

1. VVS Laxman, 281 vs Australia, Kolkata

Perhaps the greatest innings of the modern era, surpassing Lara's 375 which was achieved on a batsman-friendly flat pitch against a frankly average England attack. India were invited to follow on by Australia, and VVS Laxman, the only batsman to surpass 50 in India's first innings, was promoted to number 3. 274 runs behind, India needed an innings Byron Bell Jersey , and VVS Laxman provided a masterclass. What was most impressive about Laxman's innings was the consistency - fluid strokeplay from start to finish. He rescued India from an innings defeat and provided victory against the best side in the world. The best innings of modern times, by a long chalk.

It is a category of which many people consider to be speculative fiction, and it often features rather fantastical elements, principles and feats of scientific endeavor. It is quite common in a lot of books, films and television shows which people watch today. One of the more common traits of science fiction tends to be that it is either set in the far or reasonably far future or within an internal historical time line.

It is also a regular theme of a lot of shows on the TV today, some of which can be set in the present although a few are also futuristic in their nature. Such stories often have an interesting impact and influence on society today, as many people constantly wonder about what the future might be like.

A decent story from this category of literature will allows feature technologies which have not been invented yet Harry Douglas Jersey , or types of science that haven’t been proven by today’s standards. A very good example would be the likes of artificial intelligence, set in futuristic stories whereby robots generally live alongside humans. This could always change, however, as many feature machines and humans in conflict.

Another common theme is that of the space opera, in which the story is set in a universe where faster than light travel is possible, and civilization has spread out amongst the stars and onto different planets.

A lot of the time, it is thought of as being more science fantasy than fiction, and elements which are contained within the book or novel itself will often contain technology and powers which have a loose scientific basis. Today Da'... Searcy Jersey , one can find many examples of the space opera genre in many DVD and book stores.

“Hard” science fiction is another kind which takes a much harder look at the world of scientific research and what might possibly be made of it. Usually, the writer themselves will do a lot of research into a specific topic and try and see how
