India have been on a roll, as they are on a five-series unbeaten run in T20Is.
While they look to continue their streak in the ongoing series against New Zealand, they have been conspicuous of chasing down tough totals.
As they aim to continue with the same momentum, we rank some of their top chases in the format.
Pathan brothers spoil Lanka's early fun with the ball
India were up against Sri Lanka in a one-off T20I in Colombo, in 2009.
Electing to bat, Lanka set an above-par total of 172 for India, courtesy opener Tillakaratne Dilshan's 61.
In reply, India were struggling, as they were 115/7.
However, a composed unbeaten stand of 59 between the Pathan brothers (Irfan and Yusuf) ensured India steal one, with four balls to spare.
Indians upset Lanka by pulling off record chase
The same year, it was in Mohali, when India and Lanka were playing the final T20I of a two-match series.
Having lost the opening match, India were chasing a target of 207.
However, the Indians were off to a strong start this time, as opener Virender Sehwag smashed a 36-ball 64.
Following his dismissal, Yuvraj Singh scored a 25-ball 60 for a six-wicket win.
Suresh Raina ensure India inflict Aussies a whitewash at home

Although India were off to a strong start, it came down to the wire, with two required off the final delivery, as Suresh Raina sealed it all.

However, the Indians were off to a smooth start, as KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer's respective fifties ensured India pull off a record chase in NZ.
