In ODI cricket, chasing any target is not an easy job, whether it is a big or small chasing. The batsmen require right kind of temperament during the chasing, as they might have to face different situations in different period of the chasing, and they have to adjust with the situation in a very short time as there are very lesser scopes to make any mistake.
While the ODI cricket is almost 50-year-old, we have seen some great chasing masters in this format who like to finish the game successfully for their teams. Their consistent success in chasing set a great example.
Here we are talking about the top five batsmen with most ODI not outs while chasing
Jacques Kallis (South Africa) – 34 not outs
Former South African all-rounder Jacques Kallis, who played 328 ODIs from 1996 to 2014, batted in the second innings of an ODI match for 158 times. During those ODI chasing, Kallis remained not out in 34 ODI innings, and out of those matches, South Africa won 30 ODIs. In this 34 ODI innings, the right-handed batsman hit three centuries and 19 fifties, including his best knock 121, not outs.
South Africa’s most ODI run-scorer (11579 runs) Kallis scored 5575 runs in overall ODI chasing (average 44.95), including five centuries and 45 half-centuries.
