In the white-ball cricket, the higher batting strike-rate is very important due to the demand of setting up maximum score on the board under the limited overs. Similarly, during the 2007 ODI World Cup (officially known as the ICC Cricket World Cup 2007), we experienced some incredible 200+ batting strike-rates.
In the 2007 ODI World Cup, some powerful batsmen successfully showed their aggressive batting performances in the crucial period.
Here we are talking about the top five batsmen with the highest strike-rate in an innings in the 2007 ODI World Cup (at least scored 25 runs in an innings)
Mark Boucher (South Africa) – 226.08 vs West Indies (at St George’s on 10th April 2007)
It was the 37th match of the 2007 ODI World Cup (Super 8 stage). After the Proteas team got the great start due to the solid performances from the top-order batsmen, the wicketkeeper-batsman Mark Boucher finished that innings on the higher note. The right-handed middle-order batsman came to the crease in 44th over and hit the 22-ball fifty and scored 52 runs off 23 balls before losing his wicket in the last over. Boucher had the batting strike-rate in that innings was 226.08.
During that knock, Boucher hit 2 fours and 5 sixes. While South Africa scored 356/4 (50 overs), the hosts West Indies were restricted to 289/9 as South Africa won that match by 67 runs.
