I had forgotten about the two

I had forgotten about the two Adelaide games where Aus somehow managed to win despite conceding 500+ but yes, its hard to imagine a team losing after making 400. Also assumed SL would be on the list for the Oval fireworks but I see it didn't even make the top 10 list. I think Eng made 445ish in that test and still lost.

Aus lost the 2003 Test match

Aus lost the 2003 Test match against Ind in Adelaide, but they won the other one against Eng.

Ya, Eng made 445 in that game, its 17th highest total in the all time list. But SL do feature ahead of this twice.
1) When Pak scored 451 in Galle (2014) [13th highest]
2) When WI scored 448 in Galle (2001) [15th highest]
