10 MOST SUCCESSFUL CHASES IN ODI HISTORY

Posted: February 12, 2011 in Uncategorized

It was one of the greatest ODI victories ever when Australia chased down a mammoth 333 at the SCG in the sixth game of the seven-match series. Australia’s 334 for 8 was only the 5th highest chase in limited overs cricket to win a match. Will we get to see such a high run chase in the upcoming World Cup? If we do, it would take the competition to a new level. MSN India takes a look at ten most successful chases in ODI cricket history. And we wish, that this World Cup throws up some killer run chases like the one we witnessed at the Sydney Cricket Ground recently.
