Ben Stokes, Kusal Perera and others: Which is the greatest fourth-innings knock in recent memory

There was a different Lara innings not included in that article when WI broke the world record for a fourth innings chase by beating Australia by 1 wicket. 428/9 I think?

Edit: just checked and it was 418/7. Sarwan and Chanderpaul each got a century with Lara contributing a 60-odd.

Perera was every bit as astounding as stokes. vs Steyn, Rabada, Philander, Olivier. A hell of a bowling line-up. Amazing to have two such innings in the same year. It was also, from memory, the first ever Sri Lanka win in South Africa.
