The number of runs that the team batting second has had to chase in a Cricket World Cup final is as follows. The number is always one greater than the number of runs that the team batting first has scored in their innings.

The teams are listed in the order in which they batted in the final. Those matches whose second figure is lower than their first represents a failed run chase.


West Indies 291/8

Australia 274


West Indies 286/9

England 194


India 183

West Indies 140


Australia 253/5

England 246/8


Pakistan 249/6

England 227


Australia 241/7

Sri Lanka 245/3


Pakistan 132

Australia 133/2


Australia 359/2

India 234


Australia 281/4

Sri Lanka 215/8


Sri Lanka 274/6

India 277/4

The World Cup finals with successful run chases are therefore those of 1996 (chasing 241), 1999 (chasing 132), and 2011 (chasing 274).

The highest run chase in world cup one day cricket is 438 runs.

This is not in the world cup. Previous record was 313 by Sri Lanka against Kenya. But this record was broken by Ireland (328) against England during 2011 WC in Bengaluru.

What is test match?

A test match is a form of cricket match where two national representative teams play continuously for 5 days. There are 90 overs in every day with 6 bowls per over. Each team can play a maximum of 2 full innings. Many test matches end in a draw when both teams come up with huge scores in their first innings. Victory is decided if one team can chase the total runs made by one team in their 2 innings or if the team can restrict and bowl out the other team after their allotted 2 innings before they can chase down their total.

How does a innings in test cricket end?

There are typically five ways a cricket innings can end.All out - If a team on strike loses ten of its eleven batsmen (usually due to them being dismissed or "bowled out," but injuries can also stop batsmen), preventing it from presenting a proper batting partnership on the cricket pitch, the team is declared "all out" and its innings is ended.Limited overs - In a one-innings cricket match, there will be a declared limit to the number of overs each team can bowl. Once that limit has been reached, the innings is closed.Won by wickets - If a team is last to bat, their goal is to "chase" runs and overtake the other team's total. Like in baseball, the moment they have overtaken the other team's total, the innings and match is ended, and the chasing team is declared to have won the match by however many wickets they still possess.Declaration - In First Class and Test cricket, time becomes an important consideration. If a team's captain feels that they have established a lead they can fully defend against the other team, he will "declare" his team's innings closed and give his team more time to bowl the other team out and conclude the match.Draw - This is what happens when time runs out in a First Class or Test match. If the end of the final day is reached without the match coming to a conclusion, then the innings and match are ended there and the match is declared a draw, with neither team given a win.
