418/5 vs West Indies (Indore | Dec 2011) India’s highest ODI total came back in 2011 in the fourth game of the five-match ODI series against West Indies at Indore. It was the same game in which Virender Sehwag became the second Indian to score a double ton.
Gautam Gambhir and Suresh Raina contributed with fifties too and thus took India’s total to a mammoth figure of 418/5. West Indies, in response, could manage only 265 runs as spinners Ravindra Jadeja and Rahul Sharma claimed three wickets each. India won the match by a massive margin of 153 runs and sealed the series as well.
Virender Sehwag was deservedly adjudged the Player of the Match.414/7 vs Sri Lanka (Rajkot | Dec 2009) This was India’s highest total in ODIs until they rewrote it two years later. In fact, this is one of the best high scoring thrillers ever in the history of ODI cricket.
- Having won the toss, Sri Lanka opted to field first on a Rajkot track that looked to be an absolute batting beauty.
- Indian batsmen made them regret their decision as they went hammer and tongs on the Lankan bowlers.
- Sehwag scored 146, MS Dhoni scored 72 and even Sachin Tendulkar played a stroke-filled knock of 69 which helped India to the massive total of 414/7.
Late cameos of 30* and 27 from Jadeja and Kohli also deserves to be mentioned here. It looked like the match had gone out of Sri Lanka’s hands but Tilakaratne Dilshan, Kumar Sangakkara and Upul Tharanga had other ideas. The trio put on 316 runs combined out of which Dilshan scored 160 on his own.
However, good bowling towards the end helped India to restrict Sri Lanka to three runs short of their total.413/5 vs Bermuda (Port of Spain | Mar 2007) The 2007 World Cup gives heartache to every Indian fan as India bowed out of the tournament in a disappointing manner after being beaten by Bangladesh.
But amid that disappointment was one of India’s best batting performances in ODI history. India were in desperate need to push their net run rate up and hence, they chose Bermuda as their prey to achieve that goal. Everyone including from Virender Sehwag (114), Sourav Ganguly (89), Yuvraj Singh (83) and Sachin Tendulkar (57*) starred with the bat in that match.
409/8 vs Bangladesh (Chattogram | December 2022) Following two unfortunate losses in the three-match ODI series against Bangladesh, Team India roared back in the final ODI with an astonishing total of 409/8 in the first innings, with batter Ishan Kishan getting his maiden and Virat Kohli bagging his 72nd international ton.

: India’s highest score in ODIs
What is the lowest ODI score defended?
The List Since 2000, only on six occasions has a team defended a target of 175 or below and only Zimbabwe and West Indies have been unable to chase targets below 150. This week, we look at the lowest totals that have been successfully defended in ODIs Low-scoring one-day internationals are becoming increasingly rare as the years roll by. And successful defences of small scores have almost become an extinct species. In the 1980s and 1990s, a score of 200 was challenging and 300 was Everest, nowadays 250 is defendable and 300 is a brisk climb for a skilled hiker.
Since 2000, only on six occasions has a team defended a target of 175 or below and only Zimbabwe and West Indies have been unable to chase targets below 150. This week, we look at the lowest totals that have been successfully defended in ODIs. India’s 125 at Sharjah in 1985 is the lowest score that has been defended in ODIs.
Having lost the finals of the Benson and Hedges World Championship in Melbourne a couple of weeks earlier, Imran Khan was bent on revenge as he savaged India with 6 for 14. In reply, Pakistan capitulated meekly with only four batsmen getting double figures and only Rameez Raja passing 20 as Pakistan were all out for 87, their lowest score against India.
- Sharjah’s early days were pretty low-scoring.
- It took nine matches for a team to pass 200 and a whopping 29 ODIs for a score of 250 plus.
- England’s famous 1980-81 tour of West Indies began with a defeat that ranks second in our table.
- West Indies, without Vivian Richards, had been dismissed for 127 and debutant Everton Mattis had made more than half of the runs.
England, up against Andy Roberts, Michael Holding, Colin Croft and Joel Garner, had inched to 14 for no loss before four wickets tumbled for one run. Croft eventually finished with 6 for 15 as England fell short by two runs,

Click here for the full tables Another remarkable match which doesn’t appear in the tables because it was curtailed to 30 overs a side is the clash between Australia and West Indies at the SCG in 1992-93. The umpires decided on a reduced match even though both captains felt that the pitch was dangerous after three days of incessant rain.
“Exciting, if unreal” was how Wisden described the cricket that followed. Jones’ 21 was the top score of the match as Australia made 101 for 9. West Indies, in reply, could manage only 87 and Mark Taylor, in his first match as captain, was adjudged Man of the Match for four quality catches at slip. Slower team beating a faster team in Tests The increased pace of scoring has also permeated Test cricket.
The theory is that batting at a fast clip allows teams to pile up massive scores and yet have ample time to bowl the opposition out. We look at the vice versa – when slower teams have beaten the faster ones. The first Test in the table was played on a wicket that became sticky after the first day in which England made 221 for 2.
Rain ruined the second day and, on the third, England were bowled out for 315 in 152.5 overs. It was often the tactic to throw your bat on a sticky wicket and Australia folded for 122 in 30.2 overs of which Victor Trumper made 74. Chasing an improbable 297 after England were dismissed for 103, Australia could only manage 111.
With an unassailable 4-1 lead, Australia had already won the Frank Worrell Trophy before the final Test at the MCG in 1975-76. And after the first three innings, West Indies were hurtling towards a 1-5 thrashing. Ian Redpath scored 101 and 70 in what would be his final Test.
