Cricket News: Highest totals by India in ODIs | List of highest scores by India in One Day Internationals (ODIs)

One Day Internationals (ODIs) took a back seat in 2022 in what was a T20 World Cup year. However, it ended on a memorable note for India, as they smashed 409 against Bangladesh at Chattogram.

Where does this total rank among their highest in the format? Below is a list of India’s biggest totals in ODIs.

List of the highest scores by India in ODIs

5. 404/5 vs Sri Lanka, Eden Gardens, 2014

The famous Rohit Sharma 264. One of India’s greatest ODI openers smashed what remains the highest individual score against a helpless Sri Lanka attack at Eden Gardens.

Incredibly, he scored 214 runs off his last 101 balls after he reached his half-century in 72 balls. Also, he ended up outscoring the entire Sri Lanka team, who were all out for 251.

4. 409/8 vs Bangladesh, Chattogram, 2022

On the back of a breathtaking double hundred by Ishan Kishan and classy century by Virat Kohli, India achieved their sixth 400+ score in ODIs. It was a superb show by Kishan in particular, who became the youngest to reach the double-century mark and achieved the feat in the least amount of balls.

Kishan went from 100 to 200 in 41 balls. At one point, India were on target for at least 450 after they reached a mammoth 246/1 at the end of 30 overs.

3. 413/5 vs Bermuda, Port of Spain, 2007

This one was bittersweet for India. Following their shock loss to Bangladesh that all-but-knocked them out of the 2007 World Cup, India took out their frustrations on the inexperienced Bermudians. Virender Sehwag starred with 114 (87), with Yuvraj Singh (83 off 46 balls) and Sachin Tendulkar (57* off 29 balls) taking the opposition attack to pieces.

However, this match is often remembered for one of the great catches by cult hero Dwayne Leverock.

2. 414/7 vs Sri Lanka, Rajkot, 2009

One of the most incredible ODIs. India, off the back of Virender Sehwag’s 102-ball 146 and half-centuries to Sachin Tendulkar and MS Dhoni, posted a huge 414 against a Sri Lanka attack missing Muttiah Muralitharan.

But, the Lions responded in the most incredible way. They hammered 316/1 in the first 36.2 overs, with Kumar Sangakkara smashing 90 off 43 balls. In the end, India conceded just 95 runs off the final 81 balls, overcoming Tillakaratne Dilshan’s 160 off 124 balls in the process to win by three runs.

1. 418/5 vs West Indies, Indore, 2011

After Sachin Tendulkar became the first men’s player to hit an ODI double-hundred in 2010, Virender Sehwag followed suit in the next year. India’s swushbuckling opener smashed 219 in India’s 418/5 against West Indies in December 2011, which remains their highest total to date.

Out of 149 balls, Sehwah hit a remarkable 25 fours (only two others hit more than ten in the whole game) and all of India’s seven sixes.
