India Vs South Africa
Pursuing the focus of 458 runs from 136 overs, South Africa came quite close to breaking the world record for a chase in Test cricket. At the start of the fifth day, they needed 320 with eight wickets in hand and a draw was their more realistic goal. They lose two early wickets in the morning but then came a splendid partnership of 205 runs between Faf du Plessis and AB de Villiers. By the time both were dismissed, South Africa needed 16 runs from 19 deliveries with Vernon Philander and Dale Steyn at the crease. But shockingly they batted out 19 deliveries to secure one of the games greatest draws before Steyn smashed the final delivery into the stands over long on but which decreased the run margin.
