Extras in cricket are considered hilarious. In ODIs, Extras lead to extra runs for the batting team and more often or not, it is the extras which proves to be the decider of the match. When a wide or no ball is bowled, an extra run is conceded. When there is a leg bye or a bye, an extra is conceded. In this very article, we are going to present you about the list of the most  no. of extras conceded in an ODI innings.

10. England Vs. West Indies, 1991: Extras: 43  The number speaks of itself. There were 43 extra runs conceded by West Indies in that match. England chased a score of 175 by losing 9 wickets in 49.4 overs with 43 extras. The West Indies bowling attack was disciplined enough in the likes of Curtly Ambrose, Courtney Walsh and Malcolm Marshall yet they conceded 43 extras and ended up as the losing side.

9. Bangladesh Vs. Scotland, 1999: Extras: 44  It was a group stage match of the 1999 ICC World Cup at Edinburgh and there were 44 extras conceded by Scotland team. They bowled as many as 11 no balls and 26 wide balls in the innings which is indeed shameful for any team. Bangladesh scored 185 runs in the innings and won the match.

8. Kenya Vs. India, 1999: Extras: 44 In reply to India’s 1st innings total of 329, Kenya managed to score just 235 runs and in that, 44 extra runs were conceded by India. The Indian bowlers plenty of no balls and wide balls in the innings. Although India managed to win the match by  good margin, yet it was not a disciplined display of bowling.

7. New Zealand Vs. Pakistan, 2003: Extras 44 It was the final of Bank Alfalah Cup in Dambulla. Pakistan scored 198 runs in the first innings and New Zealand chased it down with easy. The sheer indiscipline in the Pakistan bowling made New Zealand’s target much more easier. As many as 44 extras were bowled by them.

6. Sri Lanka Vs. Pakistan, 1990: Extras: 44 The match was held at Sharjah and Pakistan scored 170 runs batting first. In reply, Sri Lanka chased down the target with sheer ease. Also, there were 44 extras bowled by Pakistani bowlers. Even bowlers like Wasim Akram, Waquar Younis and Mushtaq Ahmed bowled extras.

5. Pakistan Vs. Kenya, 2011: Extras 46 It was the match in World Cup 2011. Pakistan batted first and the inexperienced bowling line up of Kenya bowled as many as 46 extras in the innings and with the help of that, Pakistan were able to reach a total of 317 and won the match quite easily.

4. New Zealand Vs. Pakistan, 1999: Extras: 47 It was the semi final game of the world cup in 1999. Now Zealand batted first in the game and managed to score 241 runs and they reached the score by the help  of 47 extras that were conceded by the Pakistani bowling in the likes of Wasim Akram, Shoaib Akhtar and Saqlain Mushtaq. Though eventually, Pakistan managed to win the match.

3. Zimbabwe Vs. India, 1999: Extras: 51 It was one of the upsets of the 1999 World Cup. Zimbabwe batted first and scored 251 runs. Indian bowlers conceded as many as 51 extras in that innings, which later proved to be one of the major causes for India’s defeat against Zimbabwe. Agarkar was the most expensive and he conceded 70 runs in 9 overs. Zimbabwe won the match by 3 runs.

2. Pakistan Vs. Scotland, 1999: Extras: 59 It was one of the group stage games of the 1999 World Cup and Pakistan batted first in the match and were given as many as 59 extra runs by the Scotland bowlers. Pakistan reached a total of 261 runs and won the match easily.

1. Pakistan Vs. West Indies, 1989: Extras: 59 This happens to be the match where most extras were conceded in an innings. West Indies conceded as many as 59 extras by bowling first in the test and Pakistan were able to reach to a target of 258 runs for that. The West Indies bowling at that time was one of the best yet they registered the most no. of extras conceded in an innings in their name.
