Rohit Sharma is regarded as one of the greatest limited-overs players of all time, and his incredible record of highest individual ODI score will always be one of the reasons for this. His 264 against Sri Lanka in 2014 is a record-breaking total, given no other batsman has come close to matching it in the last few years.
Only a few cricketers have managed to score massive double hundreds, and it is also one of the most difficult jobs. In his innings, Rohit struck 33 fours and nine sixes, and his path from a century to a double century was thrilling to watch.
David Warner has five ODI scores of 150 or more, which he shares with Sachin Tendulkar for the all-time record. Because of the attacking quality of his game, the explosive opener has a decent chance of breaking Rohit’s record. His highest score in this format was 179, which was his third score above 170.
Quinton De Kock
Quinton De Kock is regarded as one of the best white-ball players in the world, capable of making a significant contribution to any team. De Kock’s ODI average of 46.0 and strike rate of 96.0 is incredible for a player who consistently plays all three forms for the Proteas, and he has the potential to break Rohit Sharma‘s record.
Batsmen who open the innings have a solid opportunity of breaking Rohit’s record, and Martin Guptill of New Zealand is one of them. There are only a few batters in the world who can hit the ball as cleanly as Guptill when he gets going. Guptill has already scored a double century, the only one by a New Zealander, and is a strong contender to break the 264-run barrier.
One of the best batsmen in the game of cricket. Jason Roy is a strong possibility to break Rohit’s record total. The flashy batsman’s aggressive style of play earns him a spot on the list. Roy can hit the ball a long way with minimal foot movement, especially with his dazzling cross-bat swing, which he makes look so easy. He is the favored first-choice opener, and despite his failings, he is regarded as an important element of England’s squad.
In the shorter formats, Jos Buttler is one of the finest in the world, but he has yet to reach his full potential in the 50-over game. The right-hander has an uncanny ability to hit massive sixes and is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to clearing lengthy boundaries. He’s also a 360-degree player who, if he can secure a spot at the top of England’s lineup, will be incredibly dangerous. He is one of the leading contenders to beat Rohit Sharma’s record.
