Lowest team score in one-day internationals

Lowest Team Score In ODI: The lowest team score in One Day International (ODI) cricket history is 35 runs, which was scored by Zimbabwe against Sri Lanka in a match played at Harare Sports Club on 25 April 2004. It is considered to be one of the most embarrassing moments in the history of Zimbabwean cricket.

In the match, Sri Lanka won the toss and elected to field first. The Zimbabwean batting order collapsed like a house of cards, with none of their batsmen being able to reach double digits. Chaminda Vaas, the Sri Lankan fast bowler, was the destroyer-in-chief, taking 4 wickets for just 11 runs in his 9 overs. The other Sri Lankan bowlers also bowled with discipline and accuracy, making it almost impossible for the Zimbabwean batsmen to score.

Lowest team score in ODI

Zimbabwe could only able to score 35 runs in 18 overs, they lost all their 10 wickets against Sri Lanka’s brilliant bowling attack. In response, Sri Lanka chased the target after losing one wicket in 9.2 overs and SL won the match by 9 wickets.

It was not only Zimbabwe who scored the lowest team score in ODI, but USA and Canada scored 35 and 36 runs against Nepal and Sri Lanka respectively. But these two teams are not popular teams in international cricket.

But the fourth position is held by Zimbabwe again, they got all out at just a score of 38 runs against Sri Lanka on 8 December 2001 at Colombo (SSC).

Zimbabwe’s lowest score of 35 is not only the lowest team score in ODI cricket history but also the lowest score by a Full Member nation in ODI cricket. It was a huge setback for Zimbabwean cricket, which was then going through a turbulent phase, both on and off the field.
