A belligerent batting display from the English batsmen demolished the Pakistan bowling attack in the third One-Day International as the hosts posted a mammoth score of 444 for 3 wickets. The score is now the highest score by any team in 50-overs format surpassing Sri Lanka’s 443 against the Netherlands. A couple of decades ago, scoring 400 in an ODI game was a distant dream but modern days have seen teams scoring 400 on many occasions. The new rules, heavier bats have allowed the batsmen to play freely and as a result, the game has witnessed some massive scores in the recent times.
