What is the lowest score in ODI history?
ODI Means One Day International. In which both the teams are playing games of 50-50 overs among themselves. It started in 1971, but when it started then this match used to be 60 overs from both sides. But ICC has changed some of its rules but the match of 50 overs has been done. ICC (International Cricket Council) is the committee that runs the game of cricket, it handles the boards of all the teams around the world.
If there is a format of the match which is totally different from Test and T20 games starting from 2007. From T20 we understand that it is a game of only 20-20 overs, so we have to bat fast so that maximum runs can be scored and the match is won. And from the test match, we understand that this game will last for 5 days, then slow batting will be seen, and 5 days will have to wait for the result of the match to come.
ODI the game is completely different from these T20 and test
But ODI the game is completely different from these two games, in this, the teams have to play according to the situation. Batting or bowling has to be done according to the conditions, there is a side game of 3.5 hours. In ODI we get to see long entertainment as both the things are seen in it, fast batting in the powerplay and batting a bit slow in the middle overs.
The special thing about one day match is that if you do not play the match according to the plan or if someone plays without a strategy, then the chances of getting out early increase. The batsman does not understand the strategy of the bowler and is out Due to which the whole team is not able to play even 50 overs. Today we are going to read further in this article which teams have scored the lowest score in ODI.
