The most prestigious version after tests is ODI cricket. Day, night ODI cricket gives a different kind of insanity to the spectators. The various ICC events and ODI world cup member countries host bilateral or trilateral series among themselves. Many countries in 50 overs ODI cricket have to face a shameful team total.
Let’s look at some of the lowest team totals in the history of ODI cricket.
Zimbabwe cricket team had to face a helpless condition at Harare cricket ground on 25 April 2004. Zimbabwe cricket team had able to score only 35 runs in their batting innings against Srilankan bowlers at 2122nd ODI match where they played only 18.0 overs.
On 19 February 2003 Canadian cricket team had to surrender against the destructive Srilankan bowling line-up helplessly. They had able to play only 18.4 overs in that match at Paarl cricket ground at the 1958th ODI match. They had a miserable run rate of 1.92 per over.
Zimbabwe cricket team has the 3rd lowest ODI team total also. They scored only 38 runs and only able to play 15.4 overs. Srilankan bowers didn’t give a chance to the Zimbabwean batsman. On 8 December 2001, they gave this shame to the Zimbabwean cricket team at Colombo cricket ground.
On 11 January 2012 Srilankan cricket team had able to score only 43 runs against destructive South African bowlers. On the 3225 ODI match at Paarl cricket, the ground SriLankan team faced this miserable condition and cut their lowest team total.
Zimbabwe cricket team has the 5th lowest team total in ODI cricket. They scored 44 runs against the Bangladesh cricket team. Bangladesh bowels seem to be very destructive in that match, and the zimbabwe team had able to play only 24.5 overs at Chattogram cricket ground.
