The 434 runs that Australia scored in the match were led by Ricky Ponting’s 161 runs. No team has ever scored more runs in ODIs than they are doing right now. But things got even more amazing when South Africa tried to reach the goal with one ball and one wicket left, breaking the record right away. In this match, Ricky Ponting got his most runs ever, 164.
- Robin Smith (1993) –
Australia came to England to play in a one-day international series. England lost the first game, giving Australia a 1-0 lead in the series. In the second game, they batted first, and Robin Smith’s century helped them score 277 runs. It wasn’t enough because both Mark Waugh and Allan Border scored well and tried to catch up to the overall score. Robin Smith got a total of 167 points in this competition (not out).
- Rohit Sharma (2016) –
Even in one-day internationals, Rohit Sharma often gets hundreds of runs. So far, that’s how things are. India scored 309 runs in the first innings of the match against Australia, thanks in large part to Rohit’s huge hundred. But Australia was able to successfully chase it and catch it in the end. Rohit Sharma had 171 runs at the end of this match and was not out of the game.
- David Warner (2016) –
During their time in South Africa, Australia took part in a series of five One-Day International games. Australia lost their first four games. In the last game, Australia was the first team to bowl, and they let 327 runs being scored. David Warner, who was batting at one end and working toward a score of 328, was getting runs. But wickets kept falling at the other end, and Australia was bowled out for 296. This meant that they were wiped out, or “whitewashed.” During this particular match, David Warner got 173 runs.
- Sachin Tendulkar (2009) –
Throughout his career, Sachin Tendulkar often played the role of the lone wolf, the player who keeps fighting even when the rest of the team gives up. Australia was trying to get to 351 runs, and Sachin hit more than 170 runs. The Indian lower order didn’t do well, which is why the team only won by three runs in the end. Sachin Tendulkar won the game because he scored 175 runs, which was more than anyone else.
- Evin Lewis (2017) –
Due to the rain, the start of the second inning of this game had to be put off. England lost the first innings of their game against the West Indies by 356 runs, mostly because Evin Lewis scored a huge hundred. On the other hand, England was able to successfully go after it and take it over. In this match, the score was 171 and Evin Lewis was not out.
- Matthew Hayden (2007) –
During this game, a significant number of points were scored. They (Australia) were the first team to take the field at the batting tee. Hayden took the first turn at bat for Australia. He drove in more than 180 runs, which contributed to the team’s overall score of 346. After falling by five wickets with 116 runs still to go, New Zealand won the match by one wicket with the combined efforts of Craig McMillan and Brendon McCullum, who scored 165 runs between them. This was the difference in New Zealand’s victory. The fact that Matthew Hayden’s score reached 181 did not result in his elimination from the competition.
- Fakhar Zaman (2021) –
Both Pakistan and South Africa were participating in this conflict at the same time. When allowed to bat first, South Africa scored a total of 341 runs before being dismissed. Even though Fakhar Zaman received a very good score, Pakistan was unable to meet its target score of 342. Pakistan needed 30 runs to win in the last over, but they were unable to score them and ended up losing. However, at this point in his innings, he was extremely near to what might have been his second 200 in a one-day international. If he had scored another run, he would have reached this potential score. When Zaman was awarded what many saw to be an unfair run out in the first over, the fantasy was destroyed. Pakistan was victorious in the match ultimately by a margin of 17 runs. Fakhar Zaman had an outstanding performance throughout this match, as seen by the 193 runs that he scored.
- Charles Coventry -(2009)
The tournament got off with Zimbabwe taking on Bangladesh in the first match. As a result of the effort done by Charles Coventry, Zimbabwe was able to get a score of 312 all by itself. His hit did not make it definite that Zimbabwe would win, and it did not even bring them near, as Bangladesh was able to catch up and win even though Zimbabwe’s chances were improved by his smash. During this competition, Charles Coventry racked up a total of 194 runs.
