Test Cricket: Top 5 highest successful chases, check out

Pakistan couldn’t register its name for a world-record chase in Test cricket history in the final hour of Day 5 at the National Stadium in Karachi on Wednesday. Australia gave them a target of 506 runs and even after giving their best, the team win. Babar Azam had scored a fine hundred but after he got dismissed, Pakistan played to draw the thrilling test match.

Babar Azam scored four runs less than 200 and Pakistan was very close to creating history. There has been a disappointment since Babar Azam missed his doubleton though it’s the highest score by a Pakistan skipper in the 4th innings and his name is among the four players who have played more than 400 balls in the second essay.

Faheem Ashraf and Sajid Ali departed very fast, after which Mohammad Rizwan scored a century but by then, it was late and the two teams settled for a draw.

In 2016, Pakistan scored i450 runs in Brisbane, Australia. Pakistan’s highest came against the Sri Lankan team as they chased a target of 377 at Pallekele.
