Top 10: Most Fifties in ODI without a Hundred

You might know that the former Pakistani captain, Misbah-ul-Haq carries the tag of most runs in ODI for anyone who didn’t score a single century.

But, what’s most striking is that he crossed the 50-mark, a massive 42-times in his 149 batting innings. Yes, he holds that record too. For someone, who has led an international team for that long and scored at an average of 43.40 in ODIs, it must be unexpected to not reach a three-digit mark in any innings.

So, in this article, we decided to focus on players who have scored most ODI fifties but without a hundred. Here you go!
