During the Australia vs Netherlands match at the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023, while Australia broke some great records, they set a new record for the largest ODI World Cup winning margin (by runs) by claiming a 309-run victory.

Delhi hosted the Australia vs Netherlands match where Aussie captain Pat Cummins chose to bat first after winning the toss. With the help of David Warner’s classy century (104 in 93 balls), Glenn Maxwell’s fastest World Cup hundred (106 in 44 balls), and Steven Smith's (71 in 68 balls) and Marnus Labuschagne's (62 runs in 47 balls) 50+ runs, Australia scored 399/8 in 50 overs.

In chasing, the Netherlands were bundled out for just 90 runs in 21 overs. Only the opener Vikramjit Singh (25) managed to reach the 20-run mark in that innings. Among the Aussie bowlers, the leg-spinner Adam Zampa claimed a four-wicket haul (3-0-8-4), while Mitchell Marsh collected two wickets (4-0-19-2), and all other three pacers claimed a wicket each (Mitchell Starc 1/22, Josh Hazlewood 1/27, Pat Cummins 1/14).
