England defeated the Netherlands by a score of 498/4 in an ODI in Amstelveen, breaking their world record. As many as three individuals scored hundreds, helping England surpass their 481-run world record set in 2018 against Australia at Trent Bridge. Dawid Malan scored 125 runs off 109 balls, surpassing Phil Salt’s 122 off 93. Then, Jos Buttler launched the quickest 162(70) for England, just missing AB de Villiers’ record-breaking 150. In addition, Liam Livingstone, who came into the game at number six, was the most brutal as he quickly reached fifty runs for England in ODIs. After the bowler delivered an excellent yorker, he too came close to being the quickest fifty-run scorer but just missed.

Eoin Morgan, who had rejoined the team as captain, was fired for a duck at this time. While Jason Roy, who pulled a run back from his relative, also only managed to score a single. It’s interesting to note that this location has already seen a 400-plus score, when Sri Lanka hit 443 back in 2006, a number that was a world record at the time. In the meanwhile, England has scored 400 points before. They previously struck 444/3 against Pakistan at Trent Bridge in 2016. This would be their third such total. In addition to today, they also scored 481 against their bitter rivals Australia in 2018 at the same location.

After winning the toss and electing to field, Netherlands faced an impossible task due to England’s ODI world-record total of 498 for 4, which was based on Buttler’s savage 162 not out and additional centuries from Dawid Malan and Phil Salt before Liam Livingstone hammered 66 from just 22 balls.

Remember when England decided to introduce a new era for the Invincibles, within 3 years time they did it. An out-worldly highest runs in ODI by team England marked the day when kings returned to claim what was rightfully theirs. In this match the English army with sheer will and brute force, they took down their arch enemy Australia. After a steel strong opening partnership, Roy was dismissed in an unfortunate run out. Scoring 82 off 61, Roy was in the pavilion and English Achilles, Alex Hales arrived at the battlefield of Nottingham. Like warriors, Bairstow and Hales invaded the Aussies. With every willow-ed assault, Australian hopes to make a comeback were brutally crushed. 

And when Bairstow was down and even Buttler couldn’t keep up the pace, the chief commander took charge. Contributing to the highest One Day score ever, came captain Morgan’s fastest fifty for England. First, among the top 20 highest team scores in ODI, England mounted 481 on the scoreboard. 

As expected, Aussies had to meet the worst fate. Forced to chase down the highest total in ODI ever, Australian camp lost all wickets by 37 overs. England made a legacy in One Day International as the team won by a mega margin of 242 runs.

Treading on the path of new era glory, English batsmen chose the right moment to set records at their home ground. Second in the list of top 20 highest team scores in ODI, England actually attained the highest One Day score back then. While Buttler reaped England’s fastest fifty, Hales’ 122-ball 171 knock led his team to seal the series. Joe Root and skipper Morgan added to the 2nd highest runs in ODI by team England. 

Pakistan faced a tough situation and struggled to put up a fight. They came off with an out-of-the-box world record as lead pacer Amir hit 22-ball fifty. To date, it is the highest score by a No.11 in ODI cricket. An incredible highest One Day score helped England to win the match by 169 runs. This comes under the top 10 highest team scores in ODI.

Plays of the Day from England’s record-breaking performance in the third One-Day International versus Pakistan at Trent Bridge summarise Pakistan’s day with Azhar’s misguided assumption. Pakistan’s final opportunity to remain in the series was now. Azhar Ali had no control over the outcome of the toss, but his squad could show they were committed to the task at hand by getting off to a fast start on the field. Good idea. Actually, Mohammad Nawaz botched his attempt to chase down a thick inside edge through square leg that Jason Roy had obtained, allowing the ball to run into the rope. It didn’t get any better for Pakistan.

The highest runs in ODI by team Sri Lanka was against Netherlands. Bettering South African best of 438 in March 2006, the lions made a world record. Sri Lanka’s highest total in ODI became the greatest total in this cricketing format back then. Jayasuriya and Dilshan took turns to massacre the Dutch bowling attack. Helpless and incapable to take early wickets, Dutch bowlers conceded 443 in 50 overs. 

This match ranks 3rd in the list of top 20 highest team scores in ODI. A legendary feat since 2006. It wouldn’t be right to say that the Netherlands just surrendered. They played their best innings ever as two strong partnerships were witnessed at Amstelveen. The highest runs in ODI by team Sri Lanka are remembered to this day.

In the year 2015, South Africa made 400+ runs in four ODI matches i.e. the highest by any team in a calendar year. This match set them on the path to achieving such a feat. The game where de Villiers unleashed the Devil inside him. Making and breaking world records, de Villiers firmly put the opening partnership under shadows. Big time striker Amla scored his career-best of 153 not out, while Rilee Rossouw registered his maiden ODI century. 

All these wonderful career-best records were eventually overshadowed by de Villiers who batted with the opponent-mocking strike rate of 330. The fastest fifty and fastest century in ODI were recorded in this match and by a single man. Scoring 44-ball 149, de Villiers built a skyscraper on an already established monument. South Africa ranks in the top 10 highest team scores in ODI. 439 is the highest One Day score for South Africa.

De Villiers establishes an astounding new century record. The previous mark for the quickest ODI century was held by Corey Anderson and stood for 36 balls until AB de Villiers shattered it in just 31 balls. As South Africa broke their own record at the Wanderers and amassed 439, just four short of the world record total of 443, AB de Villiers tore up the record books with the fastest century in ODI history, coming off just 31 balls to surpass the previous record set by Corey Anderson off 36 balls a little more than a year ago.

Yes, you’re right to be surprised. They did it. Not even in the wildest of dreams could Aussies think that Proteas would chase the highest total in ODI. 

When Smith took the challenge to empower the team in crisis, he opened to bat at a strike rate near to 200. Next, he smashed boundaries as if he was unleashing decades-old fury. Losing the partner at an early stage did slow Smith’s morale. But Gibbs entered the arena like a boss, his stance on crease assured Smith that his team stood with him. They didn’t play, they fought. This was the legendary pair’s chance to remove the indelible mark of ‘chokers’ that they had borne since the 1999 defeat. 

In the aftermath of this feeling, came a magical partnership of 187 from 121 balls. The highest team score in ODI meant nothing to the Proteas. They lifted their willows as a symbol of regaining lost glory. Stubborn Aussies fought back to reassert dominance. Taking it to the last over, Brett Lee gave a good length delivery and Boucher drove it over mid-on. As Boucher reached fifty, Proteas won the match by a single wicket. On this day, South Africa made the greatest run chase in ODI history.

Australia surged to a world record total of 434 for 4 — the first 400-plus score in the history of the game and lost. South Africa won the greatest match of all.
South Africa and Australia played in what is now viewed as the ultimate one-day international seven years ago, during the 1999 World Cup semifinal. Twenty wickets in the day, a total of 426 runs in two innings, and world-class performances all around made for a thrilling contest that culminated in South Africa losing their chance to play in the World Cup final in what is now widely regarded as the greatest one-day collapse.

3rd Highest runs in ODI by team South Africa was made against India. A batting-friendly pitch of Wankhede provided the Proteas with the right opportunity to thrash India on their own turf. The big three – du Plessis, de Kock, and de Villiers each embraced a century after another. Neither pacers nor spinners could halt the strokes and fielders spent the day running around. Mega strikers like  Sharma and Kohli only watched and learned that day. 

South Africa literally owned the game. Chasing the highest One Day score ain’t a joke, though Rahane and Dhawan tried their best. Under the pressure of a big target, Indians lost their most wickets to Rabada and Steyn. South Africa won the game by 214 runs and gave the Indian camp a chance to rethink their ODI strategy.

This match recalled the 1999 World Cup final where Aussies had crushed Proteas to mark their superiority. Openers Gilchrist and Katich set the stage for Australian skipper Ricky Ponting. On his arrival, South African bowlers couldn’t find a spot to hide. One stroke after another and Ponting, with 9 sixes and 13 fours, forged a fearful 164. Later came Mike Hussey who took a chance with the willow to shoot bullet balls at the boundaries. 

The Proteas pace attack was destroyed. They could never imagine history repeating itself. A marvel like Kallis stood with an economy of 11.6 at the end of the first innings. South African captain Smith had to empower the team and somehow face the highest One Day score.

South Africa, though, can no longer be referred to as chokers after defeating the ghosts of 1999 in a match that was even more remarkable and nerve-wracking than its renowned forebear. Australia had just scored a world-record 434 for 4 in a single innings, the first 400-plus total in the history of the game. Ricky Ponting led the charge with an innings of refined slogging that netted 164 runs of the highest class from just 105 balls, surpassing the previous record of 426 runs in a day.

Mark Boucher bulldozed the Zimbabwean side with his spectacular innings in this match. No doubt South Africa started off very well as both its openers scored their maiden fifties in ODI. But as soon as Boucher held his willow to meet the bowling attack, even his team stood mesmerized. In just 68 balls, Boucher launched himself to his career-best of 147 runs. He scored the fastest century for the South African camp and reached up the coveted list, second only to Shahid Afridi. He achieved this feat off 44 deliveries. Back in 2006, this meant big as  T20 had not been introduced yet. Lashing out on bowlers, Peterson, Bosman and ultimately Boucher helped South Africa to post their 4th highest total in ODI. 

After the first innings, it was pretty clear that no one could chase down such a target. Nevertheless, the Zimbabwean batting line-up made every effort to keep up their defiance. Opener Duffin played quality strokes against some of the best bowlers in the world. And with Masakazda and Chibhabha, Zimbabwe was able to finish at a good score of 247 for 4 wickets. A decent cricketing match as this ranks 8th among the top 20 highest team scores in ODI.

Zimbabwe is destroyed by the Boucher blitz. In the final ODI at Potchefstroom, Mark Boucher’s devastating 147 off 68 balls propelled South Africa to 418 for 5. Zimbabwe responded with a score of 247 for 4, but South Africa won the series 3-0. Mark Boucher put the finishing touches on South Africa’s heroic chase of 434 against Australia at Johannesburg in March of this year. He was their main wrecker today, though, as they piled up more than 400 for the second time in four games and won the series 3-0. A violent outburst of power that started with Loots Bosman and Alviro Petersen brought Zimbabwe on their knees before Boucher smashed his first one-day century in the 220th game.

In one-day international cricket, it took a batsman almost four decades to make the first double-century, but it only took less than two years for the second. The batsman most predicted to surpass Sachin Tendulkar’s record for the best individual ODI score, Virender Sehwag, didn’t just break it; he smashed it and lifted the bar so high that it’s difficult to envision anyone else raising it higher than Sehwag.

Jos Buttler scored his career-best with 150 runs to lead England to the highest One Day score. Captain Morgan knocked a century as well to ensure victory in this match. Together with the help of a strong opening partnership, 3rd highest runs in ODI by team England were set.

Making the second-highest run-chase in ODI history, magnificent Gayle took charge. With 11 quiet fours and 16 electrifying sixes, he rekindled hope in Windies home ground. Support from Darren Bravo helped Gayle to punch bullets off the ground. Again, when these two lost their wickets, Windies seemed to pack their bags. Surprisingly, tailenders Brathwaite and Nurse rejuvenated the innings. Nonetheless, master spinner Ali Rashid couldn’t imagine losing a winning match. As a result of Rashid’s 5-wicket haul, Windies were put down at 389.

Jos Buttler scores 150 to help England win and take a 2-1 series lead. As England barely managed to defend 418 runs, Jos Buttler, Eoin Morgan, and Chris Gayle each scored hundreds, and there were a record 46 sixes. It seemed as though Jos Buttler was yelling “catch us if you can” to any West Indies batsman who dared as he played a brutally ruthless innings to lead England to a mammoth score of 418 for six. Who therefore ought to enter the ring? Chris Gayle, their outstanding batting champion, to be exact. And for quite some time, he was up to the task.

Ranking 11th in the list of top 20 Highest team scores in ODI is the match where Australia thrashed Afghanistan. Aussie opener David Warner played a breathtaking inning while the Afghani bowling attack seemed helpless to get around. Steve Smith’s slow but important 98-ball 95 empowered Warner’s hard hits from the other end. However, it was not until Maxwell stomped on the crease. His mind bowling reverse sweeps and eye-popping scoops won hearts that day. Batting over a strike rate of 220, Maxwell somehow managed to overshadow Warner for a while. With seven sixes and six fours, Maxwell put up 88 off 39 balls. Altogether, Australia posted the highest total in ODI cricket and pushed the opponent to chase an impossible target. 

The Afghanistan side obviously couldn’t sustain the Aussie pace attack on the fastpitch of Perth. Mitchell Johnson annihilated the Afghani batting line-up and managed to pick 4 wickets in his 7.3 overs. The highest team score in ODI seemed unlikely to be chased down, thanks to David Warner who became Man of the Match.

India prevails in a high-scoring humdinger. Sri Lanka came very close to chasing down the second-highest total in one-day cricket history as an extraordinary encounter came to a close. The figures were already absurdly large. The game-winning innings was Kumar Sangakkara’s 90 from 43 balls, even though Virender Sehwag and Tillakaratne Dilshan also scored large hundreds quickly. The pivotal spells were bowled by Zaheer Khan, who finished with the most expensive analysis in India’s one-day history, and Harbhajan Singh, whose three overs in the middle had gone for 32 runs. After 100 overs, during which 825 runs were scored, Sri Lanka’s lion cubs finally lost their composure. When Ashish Nehra did, India eked out a three-run victory.

It was one of the early matches during the ICC World Cup of 2007. Indian batting line-up included the big six who played massive and mesmerizing strokes with class and culture. One down, Sehwag jogged in to replace Uthappa. He took time to adjust while Ganguly looked for spaces to push boundaries. Soon, Sehwag took charge and with brute force landed a century after two years. For the whole match, the Indian side played cautiously to construct a good target. However, when India was four wickets down, young Yuvi and master Sachin sprung up to launch bullets off their bats. 

Consequently, the 3rd highest runs in ODI by team India was found on the scoreboard. When Indian spinners got their chance, they bowled out Bermuda for 153. This highest total in ODI was then the greatest score in World Cups.

With the fastest double-hundred, off 126 balls, Ishan Kishan destroyed the ODI record books and Bangladesh’s assault, preventing the hosts from sweeping the opposition 3-0 in Chattogram. The previous record was held by Chris Gayle, who scored a double century in Canberra during the 2015 World Cup match against Zimbabwe off 138 balls. Kishan had several opportunities to beat Rohit Sharma’s 264, the highest total in ODI cricket, but Litton Das’ miraculous catch in the 36th over kept Kishan to 210 off just 131 balls.

Virat Kohli recovered from a rocky start to score an 85-ball century, his first in ODI cricket since August 2019. Kishan dominated a 290-run second-wicket stand with Kohli. Despite Kohli’s 113 hole-out, India passed 400 thanks to cameos from Washington Sundar (37 off 27) and Axar Patel (20 off 17).

Bangladesh’s response saw them crumble for 182 in 34 overs, almost avoiding the humiliation of suffering their greatest defeat (by runs) in ODI cricket. They were only able to control 20 boundaries in all. In contrast to India’s recent safety-first strategy, Kishan alone had smashed 24 fours and ten sixes over the boundary in a knock that drip-fed persistent intent.
Had India’s normal captain Rohit been healthy, Kishan might not have even participated in this match. In stark contrast to Shikhar Dhawan’s troubles this series, the replacement opener took advantage of his chance and displayed his complete range. Dhawan was out for 3 off 8 balls, his third straight score below ten, and Mehidy Hasan Miraz successfully reviewed the call to pin him leg by leg with his first pitch.
