Largest Victory Margins in ODI By Balls Remaining

One Day International (ODI) is one of the popular formats in international cricket, which is the oldest limited-overs cricket format. Here, we are talking about a special team ODI record – the largest victory margins (by balls remaining).

ODI cricket is now more than 50 years old. In this half-century of limited-overs international cricket format history, 28 teams have already experienced this game (including ICC World XI, Asia XI and Africa XI), including outside the full members.


In the success of the game, ODI has played a huge role, especially the pinnacle tournament – ICC Cricket World Cup. This format has popularised many modern aspects like limited-overs team batting, white balls, coloured jerseys, numbered and named jerseys, fielding restrictions for the bowling side etc. This format has also experienced many significant changes with time progress.

In this 50-year-old format, we have already experienced many memorable matches. However, here we are talking about some particular dominating performances with the largest victory margins in ODI (by balls remaining).
