Let me start.

My favourite from both format.

ODI: Mohammad Ashraful Vs Australia in Cardiff.
Test: Tamim Iqbal's lord century. First Bangladeshis name on lords board.

Which is your favourite for both formats?

Only Tamim has a century in T20.
Maybe Sabbir/Soumya will score the next one.

ODI: Kevin O'Brien 2011 WC


Test: BC Lara's 153* vs Australia with Walsh holding down one end to secure that win. There's nothing quite like it.

Nice picks. I remember that brilliant KOB knock.

My overseas favourites:
ODI: Virat Kohli 183 Vs Pakistan, Asia Cup. What a sublime knock, chase master!
Test: Hashim Amla 311 Vs England - determination, class and hunger!

What's your favourite from Bangladeshi cricketers?

I still watch Soumya's 127 on youtube at times!
Classy knock! And the way he took them on! Such delight to watch.

I saw that Kohli century live. Stay up during the winter night just to watch it. The Aussies were trolling him, but he replied with the bat.

I haven't seen that 183..but I have read about it.

Were you old enough to have watched that Lara century?

That 183 was too good! All class.
Missed the 141 vs Australia! Must have been classy! That too in the 4th innings!!

Laxman's 281 against Aussies was surely better than Kohli's knock but I started following cricket only after 2007 t20 WC

Ohh, you're so young kiddo...

When I was 3 years old, I got to go see regional matches with my father...in those times, guys like Walsh, Ambrose, Lara, Hooper, Richardson, Bishop, Jimmy Adams all represented their respective countries... and so there was a very competitive atmosphere.

Yep, against a rampaging Johnson and co, almost single handedly won us test, even a cynic like Ian Chappel said it was one of the best innings he had ever seen. I think Kohli underachieved in test, in my opinion he has a higher ceiling than Root, Kane and Smith, people often underrate him due to one bad series in England.

Can't we also include T20s?

Age is just a number, don't let my age deceive ya, I have the wisdom of a sage.:D

You were so damn lucky man!! in my entire life I have only watched only 3 cricket matches and all of them were IPL matches, I may sound weird but I actually enjoy watching on TV instead of being in the gallery.

Sure.
I didn't think about it as our boys (apart from Tamim) don't have any.

Missed that Lewis century though, saw lot of tweets about it on that day.

Yeah, I was doing a comparison of us at age 3.

The cricket ground was super close to my home, so that was one of the perks also.

I do enjoy it on tv also, but the quality of some of the commentary leaves a lot to be desired.

So which current T20 century had you on the edge of your seat?

There's a Habibul Bashar century in the Caribbean in 2004-5 that I recalled him playing the short balls with confidence.

They were batting first in the test match, and by lunch on day one, he was close to 100
