Most 400 in ODI by a team full list: Which team most 400 runs in ODI innings?
It wouldn’t be wrong to say that India missed out an opportunity of touching the 400-run mark in the ongoing third ODI against New Zealand in Indore. Having eventually settled for 385/9 in 50 overs after being asked to bat first by New Zealand captain Tom Latham, India would’ve become the first-ever team to post seven 400+ innings totals in the history of ODI cricket had they not fell short by 15 runs today.
A primary reason why India should have touched the aforementioned mark is because of opening batters Rohit Sharma (101) and Shubman Gill (112) scoring individual centuries in a thumping 157-ball 212-run partnership.
With the pair hitting boundaries with total ease, India had scored at a run rate of more than 8 in the first 20 overs. Such an impact-generating start to an innings should have been converted into an innings total of more than 400 runs in the general run of things.

That being said, it wasn’t to be as the home team lost its first five batters within 81 runs before the start of the third powerplay. Vice-captain Hardik Pandya (54) hit three fours and as many sixes to still power the Indian innings total in vicinity of the 400-run mark.
Readers must note that a total of six teams have been able to achieve this feat in this format. Although England’s white-ball dominance has seen them scoring the Top Three highest ODI innings totals, both South Africa and India lead the below mentioned list on the back of registering six 400+ innings totals thus far.
South Africa, who had secured a proper lead at one point in time in this aspect, haven’t been able to touch the 400-run mark since 2015. Australia, first team to do the same 16 years ago, have been able to repeat their feat just once since then.
