Highest Run Chase in ODI format

In cricket chasing down a target of 300+ in ODI cricket format has become a casual thing for many teams in the modern cricket era. Years back setting a target of more than 250 seems to be a good target for a win.

As time changes chasing 400+ runs in ODI format has become a thing that can be achieved. Statistics tell us that the team batting second has won more than the team batting first while chasing a highest run target in ODI cricket format.

First Team to Score 300+ runs in ODI Cricket

On 7 June 1975 England became the first team to score 300 plus total as they scored 334/4 against India at Lord’s, the coincidently same day New Zealand also scored 309/5 against East Africa in Birmingham. And soon Australia and Pakistan also scored their first 300 plus total.

And India was the last team to score their first 300 plus total (at that time among Test-playing nations). India’s first 300 plus total (305/5) came in 1996 against Pakistan in Sharjah.

And since then India has scored most 300 plus total and in December 2017 they became the first team to score 300 plus total more than 100 times in ODIs. And here are the teams with the most 300 plus totals.
