One Day International (ODI) Cricket has evolved significantly over the last decade. The inclusion of two new balls from either end and a change in fielding restriction has significantly favoured the batsmen.
Over the last decade, several batters have recorded incredibly exceptional individual scores unheard of in the past. Take a look at the leading individual scores in the ODI Cricket List for IPL 2021.
India- Rohit Sharma (264)
Rohit is the highest individual scorer in ODI history. The right-handed batsman engraved his name in history when he became the first-ever batsman to score 250+ in international 50-over cricket. He scored 264 against Sri Lanka in 2014.
Rohit’s 264 still holds the title as the highest individual score in ODI cricket list for IPL 2021.
New Zealand – Martin Guptill (237)
The New Zealand opener achieved this feat in the most prominent cricket tournament-The 2015 World Cup, where he was playing against West Indies during the quarter-finals: making him the second-highest individual score in ODI cricket list for IPL 2021.
