Most of them! I'll cherry-pick my favourite innings, seen live:
2 was Alex Lees
5 & 6 were both Adam Lyth, I think
14 was Joe Root
24 was Jonny Bairstow

If I'm right, I was present at all these, and most of the others. Joe Root's innings at the Ageas remains the best I've ever seen in any game, at any level. Harry's pushing him close, though!

And who was the Derbyshire batsman who scored 200 at Headingley and finished on the side beaten by an innings? We really have seen some amazing cricket, down the years, fabulous players, great memories.

All right so far but some, especially by the overseas players, are not quite as easy to remember. Darren Lehmann did remember one more!

21 & 22 There are two against Somerset. Matthew Wood made one of them, don't know the other...unless he made both.

I think 3 is Andrew Gale at Scarborough, and 17 would be Jonny Bairstow at Chester-le-Street, and a huge partnership with Brezzy. It was, of course, Joe Root who made 200+ against Derbyshire (when Chesney H made his), and that - thanks Hawke - would have been 2013, so it's number 10.

Are you classing Rudoplh as overseas? I'm thinking the 220 v Warwicks (no 15) and possibly 23/27 as well.

My favourite has to be the 252 Lehmann made against Lancs. Him and Wood were my 2 favourite players as a kid. such a shame Wood didn't progress.

I did have Rudolph as an overseas without thinking too deeply about it. He does feature again but not at 23 or 27.

9 is Damien Martyn's unbelievable innings,
11 will be Adam Lyth, yet again, big 1st wicket partnership with Alex Lees.
21 is Anthony McGrath?
25 is Gary Ballance, one I didn't see, the D/N bore at the Ageas. Gary had a colour blindness issue with the pink ball.
xx Phil Jaques got one somewhere; anyone know/guess the year?

I knew I'd get one wrong, I forgot to mark 21 as an Overseas so it isn't Anthony McGrath, though he is very adjacent.

Ah yes, Mags' was at Edgbaston, another I didn't see - so 20 Anthony McGrath.

I'm beginning to struggle. I think Matthew Wood made two, or even three, and there's another Lyth out there, somewhere.

I'll give some pointers tomorrow, surely 16 hasn't been forgotten already!
Yes to one more from Wood and Lyth.

I think with memories, it's last in, first out! Plus, of course, that no one was present to see it, in 2020.

None overseas tips:

One more at the top end by YJB, plus one by a previous decent keeper/batsman nearly 20 years ago now. Adams 4th is down the bottom end as is Matthew Woods.

Overseas tips: 2007 signing already credited with one. 2 for Phil Jaques and one from an Aussie more associated with Gloucestershire and one day cricket.
