In today’s era, it is fair enough to say that cricket is a game dominated by batsman. Although there are amazingly talented bowlers in the world cricket, the batsman today have always found a way to overpower them with their hitting abilities. However, there was a time One-Day International Cricket wasn’t as high-scoring as we have it today. There have been occasions where the batting side has been demolished by some splendid bowling performances. So, here is a list of the 10 lowest team score in ODI cricket till date:
1054 all out (23.2 overs), WEST INDIES vs South Africa, Cape Town (2004)
On number 10 is South Africa’s brilliant bowling performance in the 1st ODI of Windies’ 2003-04 South African tour. South African legend, Jacques Kallis played a magnificent knock of 109* (94) and helped his team register a decent total of 263/4 (50 overs). The star-studded batting line-up of West Indies, with quality batsmen like Brian Lara, Chris Gayle and Shivnarine Chanderpaul was humiliated by a power packed South African bowling performance. The Windies were all out for just 54 in 23.2 overs only as Makhaya Ntini and Lance Klusener picked 3 wickets each. South Africa put a complete team effort and won the match comfortably by 209 runs.
