England are facing a target of 319 against India at Lord’s in the second Test. If they go on to achieve it, it would be their second highest run-chase in Test cricket. Their highest run-chase is 332 for seven, which came against Australia at Melbourne, way back in 1928. The second highest chase came at Headingley in 2001, when Mark Butcher took them to a remarkable win over Australia, when they chased 315.

However, one score that would interest England would be their chase of 282 against New Zealand at Lord’s in 2004. On that occasion, Nasser Hussain scored a ton in his last Test for England to take them to a memorable win and sign off on a high.
