Cricket: New Zealand makes 2nd highest ODI score


New Zealand's total of 397 for 5 in 44 overs vs. Zimbabwe in the opening match of the Videocon Triangular Series being played in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe is the 2nd highest score in the history of One Day International Cricket.

Sri Lanka had scored 398-5 in 50 overs vs. Kenya in Kandy during the 1996 World Cup.

New Zealand scored 397 runs in their stipulated 44 overs (RR: 9.02), as a damp pitch delayed start of play for the umpires to shorten the innings by six overs. If New Zealand would've played 50 overs, they'd have easily scored more than 450 runs.
