"Predictably, the ending of his international career did not end the argument about Pietersen's merits, as an army of informed commentators and Piers Morgan weighed in to defend or attack him."

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
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.
(PLEASE!!!!!!!!!! NOTE SARCASM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
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
Well a team did score 324 in 37.3 overs not so long ago but it was for the loss of just 2 wickets there...
