The ODI format has gone through some immense transformation since its inception. Initially, if a team scored 250 runs, it was considered a huge total.
Now, the times have changed, and even 300 looks like a walk in the park. And many teams have scored above 350 many times, with some even going past the mark of 400 runs.
In this article, we’ll look at the highest team totals posted by each team in the ODI format.
