Highest Individual Score in ODI

By Hitesh Jain on Apr 8, 2021

It is often said that cricket is the game of batsmen where most of the rules go in the favour of batsmen. In ODI, when a batsman makes big runs then it strengthens the inning towards a big total if batting first and helps to achieve the target if chasing. In the history of ODI, there are many batsmen who have scored more than 200 runs in an inning of One Day International. Rohit Sharma, Sachin Tendulkar, Martin Guptill, Virendra Sehwag, Chris Gayle, Fakhar Zaman are the batsmen who have achieved this feat. The highest individual score in ODI is 264 runs scored by Indian batsman Rohit Sharma. Rohit Sharma struck 264 runs with nine 6s and 33 4s against Sri Lanka at Kolkata on 13 Nov 2014 that helped India to put a big total of 404 runs on the scoreboard.

The 2nd highest individual score in ODI is unbeaten 237 runs scored by New Zealand’s Martin Guptill against West Indies at Wellington on 21 Mar 2015. Then Virendra Sehwag of the Indian team added 219 runs as the 3rd highest individual score against West Indies at Indore in 2011.

For India, Rohit Sharma is the batsman who struck the highest individual score in ODI, then Virendra Sehwag comes at number 2 position with his 219 runs against West Indies at Indore on 8 Dec 2011. Rohit Sharma has struck 3 double centuries in ODI in 264 runs against Sri Lanka, 209 runs against Australia, and unbeaten 208 runs against Sri Lanka. In the history of ODI, the first total of 200  was scored by Sachin Tendulkar against South Africa at Gwalior on 24 Feb 2010. Then after one year, Virendra Sehwag struck the 2nd ODI 200+ runs for India in an inning in 2011.

So, these are the data of the highest individual score till April 2021 and we hope that any batsman will score 300 or more in the coming future.
