#1 Stuart Broad (England) – 169 Against Pakistan, Lord’s, 2010
The second highest score by a batsman at No.9 or lower is Broad’s 169, the first one being Ian Smith’s 173 for New Zealand against India, but then, Smith was a wicket-keeper batsman.
Broad’s innings was spoiled by the fact that the Test will forever be remembered for the spot-fixing charges Mohammad Amir and Mohammad Asif were found guilty of. Broad showed up at 102 for 7 against a high-quality bowling attack and added 332 runs for the eighth wicket with Jonathan Trott, who scored 184.
England finally scored 446 and then won the match by an innings and 225 runs, Broad picking up 3 wickets as well.
