England's record in chasing baseball is unmatched and could pose a threat in the second Test

In the second Test played between India and England, England reached the target of 399 runs to win. England played in the “Baseball” era under the captaincy of Ben Stokes and coached by Brendon McCullum and since June 2022, they have won 8 out of 10 matches by chasing runs (hitting in the last innings of the game), which is a big victory for India . Alarm bells may be ringing. However, for England to score 399 runs, a new story needs to be created.

Let us tell you that in the 8 out of 10 successful chases they have taken in the ‘Baseball’ era, England have achieved the biggest target of 378 runs. This means that the target of 399 runs will not be easy for England. However, in 2022 in Birmingham against Chase Bharte, he scored the highest score of 378 runs in the “baseball” era. But it won’t be easy for England to reach 399 runs on Indian soil.

In the baseball era, England have successfully scored runs in 8 out of 10 games. His first run chase during this period came against New Zealand at Lord’s in 2022, where he scored 279 runs. His last successful chase was against Australia in 2023 when he scored 254 runs.
