And England's highest ever run chase was 332 Vs Australia in Melbourne. Guess the year!
To be pedantic, that was England's highest successful run chase. They made 654/5 in the fourth innings of the so-called timeless test in South Africa 1939 when the game was called off as a draw because the boat home was leaving. We've twice made more than 400 and been beaten, both times by the Aussies. Otherwise no team appears to have made more than 451 batting fourth regardless of result. So come on England, plenty of time, history awaits you.
I just love this! Not quite what I had in mind, but, who cares?
