Highest Team Score in ODI

By Hitesh Jain on Apr 16, 2021

In International Cricket, the batting skills of the players have been improved a lot than before because of which we have seen many high scoring ODI matches in the last 5-10 years. Batsmen favored rules, small boundaries have shifted the game more towards batsmen and that is why the highest team score in ODI has crossed 400 marks many times. There have been 20 moments in the history of ODI matches when a team has gone across 400 runs. The highest team score in ODI is 481 runs scored by England against Australia at Nottingham on 19 Jun 2018. The stormy innings of Jonny Bairstow and Alex Hales helped England to score a mammoth 481 runs. Johnny Bairstow struck 139 runs and Alex Hales contributed 147 runs in that match. England won that match by 242 runs.

The 2nd highest team score is 444 runs added by England against Pakistan at Nottingham on 30 Aug 2016. Once again, Alex Hales was the hero of the match who struck 171 runs from 122 balls with four 6s and 22 boundaries. The 3rd highest total of 443 runs knocked up by Sri Lanka against the Netherlands at Amstelveen on 4 Jul 2006. In the past record of ODI, the first-ever 400+ total was scored by Australia against South Africa at Johannesburg on 12 Mar 2006.

India for the first time crossed 400 total in ODI against Bermuda at Port of Spain on 19 Mar 2007. Virendra Sehwag played a blustery inning of 114 runs off 87 balls with three 6s and 17 boundaries that helped India to reach 413 total. Then after 2 years, the Indian team again added a total of 414 against Sri Lanka at Rajkot on 15 Dec 2009. For India, the highest team score in ODI is 418 runs against West Indies at Indore on 8 Dec 2011. In that match, Virendra Sehwag played a superb inning of 219 runs that fired up the total to 418 runs.

South Africa has scored 400+ runs 6 times, India 5 times, England 4 times, Sri Lanka & Australia 2 times, and New Zealand 1 time. Pakistan, Bangladesh, and West Indies have never been able to touch the 400 marks on the scoreboard.
