Cricket fans worldwide relish the exciting moments and incredible displays of skill during events like the ODI World Cup. However, it's not just close matches and nail-biting finishes that make these tournaments memorable. Sometimes, a team's dominance leads to significantly large winning margins.


In this article, we'll closely examine the top five largest winning margins in ODIs. These historic victories not only showcase the strength of the winning teams but also celebrate diversity and passion.

Following an impressive performance at the Greenfield International Stadium against Sri Lanka in January 2023, India now holds the record for the most substantial win by runs in ODI cricket. Team India makes two more appearances in the top 10 with exceptional performances against Bermuda and Hong Kong. South Africa also has three entries in the top 10, while Australia has two.

Australia climb to 2nd position with recent 309-run victory over the Netherlands


Australia's recent 309-run victory against the Netherlands in the ongoing ODI World Cup 2023 secured them the second position on the list. Australia dominated the Netherlands with ruthless efficiency. They won the toss and chose to bat first, amassing a massive total of 399/8. This was largely thanks to a 93-ball 104 by David Warner and a rapid 106 from Glenn Maxwell in just 44 balls. Half-centuries from Steve Smith and Marnus Labuschagne also contributed significantly to this impressive score.

In response, the Dutch team struggled as Australia's bowlers dismantled their lineup with clinical precision. Adam Zampa stood out as the top-performing bowler, claiming four wickets. The Netherlands could only manage to score 90 runs in their run chase, resulting in a commanding 309-run victory for the Australian team.
