Cricket is a sport which most of the people in India love. Cricket is worshipped like a religion in India. In the three formats of international cricket, Test matches are the ones that require patience and thus are the most testing format of the game. T20 format includes the dominance of powerplay, and thus the game turns every moment. But among these, the ODI format is the one which at the start of the innings requires the patience to study the match conditions and then at the end needs a boost to increase the team total. So, today I will be discussing the top 10 individual scores in the history of ODI matches.
