High pace 4th innings chases

https://www.espncricinfo.com/series...ia-1st-test-india-tour-of-west-indies-1982-83 is quite a famous one: India were effectively 164-6 at tea on the last day, were quickly bowled out by Andy Roberts, and WI won with 4 balls to spare.

In https://www.espncricinfo.com/series...lanka-3rd-test-sri-lanka-tour-of-england-2002, England were set 50 to win in 6 overs, and only needed 5 of them.

https://www.espncricinfo.com/series...ca-3rd-test-south-africa-tour-of-england-1994 was a weird one: the pitch had enough in it for Malcolm to take his famous 9-57, and England had over 2 days to score 205. They took 35 overs (still the fastest chase of over 200 runs), with Donald ending up with figures of 12-1-96-1.

Iirc when India chased the 380 odd against England at home the rr was 4.5ish, mainly because of Sehwag.

That one is my first ever memory of watching cricket. I wish I'd been a bit more into it by then (I would have been nearly 7 at the time) because I imagine it was a pretty good last session or so to follow. As it was, it was just on in the backgroud until my dad and grandad both got very excited when Sri Lanka lost 2 in 2 at the end 9I can very clearly recall my grandad asking 'Has Muralitharan ever been out first ball before?' and I kinda got caught up in the mood. I think the next day, or if not very shortly afterwards, it resulted in my dad playing cricket with me for the first time (or if I'd played before, I don't remember, though he'd probably tried to indoctrinate me when I was about 3) so really I owe my love of the sport to that match

Whatever it takes!!!
That 2005-06 declaration by Graeme Smith, I recall that being a bit of a hail Mary as they were 1-0 down in the series, right?

it wasn't a substantial total but there was that game in the uae a few years ago where england had very little time to chase 70-100 runs and they came up short and the light got them in the midst of a buttler blitz
