India cricket team is one of the most prominent and leading teams in the cricketing world that has lifted the Men’s ODI World Cup 2 times, i.e, 1983, and 2011. As of April 2022, India is listed at the 4th position in the ICC ODI team ranking. The strength of the Indian team is its batting lineup as they have chased 300+ targets 19 times in the history of ODI cricket. India has got players like Virat Kohli, one of the best chasers in the 2nd inning, who has helped his team on many occasions to achieve the big targets. The Indian team had MS Dhoni, known as the best finisher in the world.
India registered the record for the highest chase in ODI by India during a match when Australia visited India to play 7 ODI matches series in 2013.
In the 2nd match of the series, Australia set a target of 360 runs for India. The target of 360 runs was looking very tough for the Men in Blue and everyone thought Australia had got the upper hand in that match. On the other hand, when Indian openers came out to the middle to chase the target, they surprised everyone with their powerful knock of 176 runs in a pair for the first wicket, Shikhar Dhawan added 95, and Rohit Sharma contributed an unbeaten 141. After the dismissal of Dhawan, the incredible knock of an unbeaten 100 runs from just 52 balls by Virat Kohli snatched the match from Australia completely.
Thus, India successfully achieved the target and made 362 runs as their highest chase in ODI by India.
