ICC World Cup 2019 winner, England, had cleared their intent to lift the title beforehand by registering the highest ODI total in June 2018. England scored 481 runs in the third ODI of the five-match series against Australia, which went on to become the highest-ever total in the 50-over format. They also surpassed their best record of 443 runs against Pakistan in 2016.
Besides, it was a nightmare tour for Australia where they were whitewashed by England in the five-match ODI series.
As of now, one year has passed, but none of the team has surpassed the record built by England. As said, records are meant to be broken.
So, soon, there are teams who have the calibre to break the record of England.
Having said that, here is the list of the team who can overtake England record of 481 runs in one-dayer. Let’s take a look at the Five Teams That Can Eclipse England’s Record Of Highest ODI Total.
Five teams who can break England’s ODI Total of 481 runs:
5) Pakistan National cricket team:
The Green Army is surely one of the contenders to score the mammoth ODI total set by England. With the likes of Fakhar Zaman, Abid Ali, and Babar Azam in the batting line up, the Pakistan team can be unstoppable when they will be at the peak.
To score a huge total of 481, the Pakistan team will have to set up a partnership like England top-order batsman Alex Haley and Jonny Bairstow did on that day against Australia. They have also strong middle order that could pose threat to the opposition.
Certainly, the Green Army are the favourites to break the record of Englishmen.
