    I seem to remember us failing to chase not very many at all in the 1992 WC v Zimbabwe. We weren't exactly ever crusing as such, but the total was so low I assumed we'd do it until quite late on.

    Think we'd already qualified for the semis tho.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    That's the one you are talking about Ed

    Faaip - Yeah that was the other one I was thinking about, but because they only needed another 160 with Bevan still there and a handy lower order, they were always a chance. I think because Bevan had such a great reputation of batting with the tail it sort of made it less unlikely. It was an amazing effort all the same.
    Wow that's a funny NZ team looking back. Styris has frontline bowling figures and batting in the tail. Sinclair opening. McMillian smoking it back then, and Oram playing as a No.5 Batsman who bowls a few overs. A young Franklin in the team. Wiseman playing in an ODI and being a useless wheel, batting at No.11 and bowling 2 overs for 21. Fleming really didn't rate him eh? (with perhaps good reason.

    Surely it has to be up there with the most unlikely victories of all time. At 41/4 after 9 overs the match was over. NZ required over 310 runs off 41 overs without their top 4 batsmen. You would pretty much bet your life on an Australian victory.

    Is there a more remarkable position that a team has come back from to win a ODI?
    Well NZ so nearly managed an even more sensational comeback against the same opposition here and but for Chris Harris' injury and a stupid run-out might well have managed it.

    Needing 96 from 13 overs, with 1 wicket and 1 injured player left. Did anyone give 'em a cat-in-hell's chance? And yet they came closer than you could possibly imagine.

    There's some obvious examples of teams batting first being rescued after looking set for embarrassingly low scores - India vs Zim in 1983, Richards' match at Old Trafford in 1984, for example. Not quite the same thing though.

    the greatest comeback-Pak v.s SL sharjah 2000
    SL needed 27 runs off 11 overs with 7 wickets in hand-they had scores 200+ from 39 overs thanks to Jayasuriya and D'silva

    Wasim and Razzak pulled them back.

    Last over SL needed 1 run with 1 wicket left

    Razzaq bowled Chamara'Silva first ball
    Match tied.

    Was in a meaningless offshore triangular tournament between two subcontinental teams who were only playing there because of their unutterable greed in trying to fill every day in the calender with cricket. Cannot possibly be taken seriously.

    Ive got one more for you Richards
    Pak v.s NZ 1994 christchurch
    Pak 161 all out
    NZ 142 / 4 with 7 overs remaining and 20 runs to win
    Waqar takes last 4 wickets for 11 runs picking up match figures of 6/30
    NZ 161 all out 49.4

    Waqar Younis bowled superbly to dismiss the last two batsman in the
    50th and last over in an amazing climax.

    I dont think a team has ever scored 300 in 40 overs with only 6 wickets in hand in ODIs so for me, yeah , it was the biggest comeback I can recall
    rave down, hit the ground
