Greatest chases in T20 history
Lots of big scores and thrilling contests await us as we get closer to the T20 World Cup. MSN India takes a look at some of the closest and the most exciting finishes in T20 history.
Date: May 14, 2010
Venue: Beausejour Stadium, Gros Islet, St Lucia
Fixture: Australia Vs Pakistan
Result: Australia won by 3 wickets with 1 ball remaining
Man-of-the-Match: Michael Hussey
The half centuries from each of the Akmal brothers helped Pakistan put up a massive total of 191. The Aussies struggled all the way as no one except Cameron White and Mike Hussey could stick around for a too long. 48 from the last 18 balls looked nearly impossible with just three wickets in hand. But what followed was one of the most magical T20 innings the world has ever seen. After managing 14 and 16 runs respectively in the next two overs, Hussey got the strike on the 2nd ball of the last over with 17 still needed off the last five balls, he hit two sixes and a four before finishing it off in style with another six on the fifth ball.
