Beginning from the true sensation of modern-day cricket, Indian super star Rohit G. Sharma, who does not only possess the placement of best ODI run-scorer, instead he occupies three places in the list. R.G. Sharma’s best performance with 264 runs in 173 balls has had been unvanquished since 2014, which made him conquer the top placement with the number 1 spot. He was able to achieve this greatest feat with the help of 33 fours and 9 maximums against a strong opponent, Sri Lanka. Till date, Rohit Sharma has the highest individual score in one-day international.
Hit man’s first best running figure was accomplished back in 2013 acquiring 209 runs in 158 deliveries against Australia. With this significant score, he still holds the sixth spot for the highest ODI run scorers.
Securing seventh place of the ranking list, the latest highest scoring figure of Rohit Sharma’s ODI career, consists of 208 runs (not out) in 153 balls, in opposition to Sri Lanka once again.
“Shana”, at the age of 33, via his consecutive performance and half, single and double centuries, is conquering ICC ODI batters rankings too, placing at the second position following skipper Virat Kohli.

Being on the third rank in the list of highest individual ODI score in single innings, Indian opener and right-handed batsman Virender Sehwag made a total of 219 runs in opposition to West Indies in 2011. He smashed back to back boundaries to Windies in order to make his team victorious. Viru was able to accomplish this exploit with the help of 25 fours and 7 sixes.
The name doesn’t require any introduction. The universal boss has several records at his name. One of those is placement at fourth in the respective list. He recorded the first ever double century in world cup history against Zimbabwe in 2015 and made a total of 215 runs in 147 deliveries. “Gayle-storm” laid this milestone with 16 maximums and 10 fours. Chris Gayle ranks 4th in the highest individual score in ODI.
Pakistani opener who is also known as “Fauji” (soldier) due to his navy associated pre-cricket background, made his place in the list of highest individual score in odi a couple of years ago in 2018 against Zimbabwe. With a remarkable inning of 210 not out, he seized the victory for his team and held the sixth spot to his name. Along with this, Fakhar became the only Pakistani cricketer to score a double-ton in one day international cricket and bears the record of highest runs scored by a Pakistani in single ODI.
How could Indian little master Sachin Tendulkar loiter of this dare? In fact, he claimed this exceptional feat along with the record of the first-ever double century in the history of ODI cricket. Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar attained this unprecedented record against South Africa in 2010 being not out till the end and still conquering the eighth position of highest ODI run scores. Because of his extraordinary knock, he was titled as the “God of Cricket”. Sachin marks 6th position in 10 highest individual score in ODI.
Although Zimbabwe might appear to be a frail opponent but when it comes to individual performance, the strength of the team does not really matter. The only thing matter is diligent effort and self determination. Same is the case of Zimbabwean right-handed batter, Charles Coventry. In fourth ODI versus Bangladesh in 2009, Coventry knocked up truly praiseworthy century and missed his double-ton by only 6 runs. Although Zimbabwe couldn’t win that match, “Choppa” made room in the list of top run-scorers in the corresponding format at 9th.
Super hitter of the late twentieth century from Pakistan, opening batsman Saeed Anwar, kept the record of highest run-scorer in the history of ODI cricket for more than a decade. The record of 194 runs was leveled by Coventry and surpassed by Tendulkar in 2010 which was made by Pakistani left-handed opener back in 1997. He achieved this maneuver within 146 deliveries against rivals India during Pepsi Independence Cup tournament at opposition’s own home-ground and contributed a major role in the victory of Pakistan. The name, Saeed Anwar, is still shining at tenth spot of the record of highest ODI runs.
Best Cricketer of twentieth century, Vivian Alexander Richards, had had been the top run scorer for more than a decade. His tremendous knock of 189 runs (not out) blew Englishmen down to their knees at their home-ground. That unforgettable strike still places at number 11 in the list of highest ODI run scores even after passing of more than three decades.
Positioning at 13th, Sri Lankan opener and all rounder Sanath Jaysuria had recieved the nickname “Matara Hurricane” after his masterstroke at Sharjah in 2000 against India. He made a contribution of 189 runs in 161 deliveries wih the help of 21 fours and 4 maximums so as to make his team win the first ODI of the series.
Since the new talent is progressively coming forward from every cricket nation, it can be expected that any new player outdoes these world records along with showcasing vigorous and delightful performance.
