Chasing a target in cricket is a responsible and challenging task. Especially in ODI and T20Is, the team batting second has to chase the target set by the opposition to claim victory in the match. Batsmen have to score runs at the required rate and also take care of not losing their wickets. While batting second in a cricket match, batsmen also have to deal with a bowing attack and pressure generated from the fielders of the opposition team.

They also remained not out in many games while successfully chasing the target. Here we take a glance at 7 players with the most not-out knocks in successful ODI chases.
