    Mitchell Johnson joins Craig McMillan & Brian Lara

    Mitchell Johnson, has just scored 26 off an over from Paul Harris, but was stranded one boundary hit short of his first test century.
    122.1 Harris to Johnson, FOUR, kneels down and slog-sweeps this one behind square leg
    122.2 Harris to Johnson, FOUR, down he skips, whipping a flatter delivery off his pads over midwicket
    122.3 Harris to Johnson, SIX, even better! Its maximum! Johnson goes down and slogs this one over midwicket for six, man he's targeting Harris
    And that is Mitchell J's personal Test best.
    122.4 Harris to Johnson, no run, fuller of off stump and this time he leaves it alone
    122.5 Harris to Johnson, SIX, he's going the distance! This one's a dinger, rows back over mid-on
    122.6 Harris to Johnson, SIX, oh my word, he's just going better and better! Harris keeps it flat and wide but Johnson waltzes down and clubs it across the line, off the middle of the bat for a six over long-on and out of the stadium
    He is now at joint 3rd in the most runs off an over category. The other instances of 26 in an over are Craig McMillan smacking Younis Khan's part-time legbreaks around in March 2001 and Brian Lara caning Danish Kaneria in November 2006. The record holder is Brian Lara (28 off Robin Peterson) & at #2 is Shahid Afridi (27 off Harbhajan)

    Simply fantastic hitting.

    Also, just saw a 6 by Taylor in the W Indies - England match. Wow. The sound that it made was outrageous.
