My fav ODI innings : 185 IVA Richards in '87 WC. Remember that he didn't open. Also, the PP's, field restrictions were not there.
You mean 181 against Asantha demel and co. That was such a rubbish bowling attack.
I think you are talking about his 189 against England. Not that was a good bowling attack. But that was a better innings than his 181. There are so many good innings better than that 181. I would rate Kapil dev's 175 much better than either of Viv's innings because it came when India was 17 for 5.
