In Conclusion

As already stated, the above list includes only successful chases. There have been instances when India have made substantial scores in the second innings of an ODI only to end up losing the game. For example, in November 2009, India were set a target of 350/4 by Australia in a match in Hyderabad. However, the hosts were bowled out for 347, losing the game by a wafer-thin margin of 3 runs.
