NEW DELHI: There have been countless swashbuckling knocks played in the ICC ODI World Cup across all eleven editions so far. There are some which fans will never forget, like Kapil Dev's 175* vs Zimbabwe in the 1983 edition, when India were down to 9/4, West Indian legend Viv Richards's 181 to explosive Kiwi opener Martin Guptill's 237* in the last edition.Ahead of the 2019 ICC World Cup, TimesofIndia.com sports recaps the top five highest individual scores which will remain glittering highlights of cricket's biggest carnival.New Zealand opener Martin Guptill carried his bat through the innings to post an unbeaten 237 - the second-highest individual score in ODI history - against the West Indies in the quarterfinal of the ICC World Cup 2015 in Wellington. Chasing a huge 373-run target, Zimbabwe were bowled out for 289.For the third highest score on this list we have to go back to the 1996 edition.

South African opener Gary Kirsten (who later became India coach) held the record of the highest-individual score in the World Cup for almost 20 years (before Gayle broke it in 2015). Kirsten scored a mammoth 188 not out against UAE in Rawalpindi, struck 13 fours and four sixes in his 159-ball innings, as South Africa made 321/2 in 50 overs. It was also the then second highest individual ODI score after West Indian great Viv Richards' 189 not out against England in 1984. South Africa then limited UAE to a paltry 152/8 to win the match by 169 runs.Sourav Ganguly probably played the best limited overs knock of his life in the 1999 World Cup against the defending champions Sri Lanka in Taunton. The Sri Lankan bowlers were taken to the cleaners by Ganguly and Rahul Dravid during the course of their record 318 run partnership (at that time an all-time record in ODIs for any wicket).

India then produced a good bowling effort to bowl out Sri Lanka for 216 in 42.3 overs, to wrap up a 157 run win.West Indies found themselves in a spot of bother at 45/2, but Viv Richards bailed his team out with a destructive innings of 181 which was scored off just 125 balls against Sri Lanka in Karachi in the 1987 edition. The West Indian legend also overtook Kapil Dev's 175* to record the highest-ever individual score at the World Cup at that time. The West Indies went on to register a huge 191 run win, by restricting Sri Lanka to just 169/4. Meanwhile, they were the first team to chase the target of 400 runs in a match against Australia in 2006. The fifth 400+ came against Ireland in the 2015 ICC World Cup whereas the sixth one came against Indian in that same year.

India first registered a 400+ total against Bermuda in the 2007 ICC World Cup, and since then they have achieved the milestone four more times. The second time India went past the landmark against Sri Lanka while the third and fourth came against South Africa and Windies, thanks to double centuries from Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag. The fifth 400+ score also came against Sri Lanka when Rohit Sharma registered the ODI highest score of 264 runs. England Cricket team who have witnessed an upsurge since 2015 have scored 400+ total four times with the last one coming against Windies earlier this year. The second time they crossed the 400+ landmark was against Pakistan when Alex Hales registered the highest score by an English batsman.

The third came against Australia when England posted 481 runs – the highest One-Day Internationals total ever. Although Sri Lanka is currently going through a tumultuous time, they have registered the second highest ODI score of 443 runs. Australia first registered their 400+ total in the historic match against South Africa in 2006. The Aussies scored their another 400+ total against Afghanistan when they had put up 417 runs on the scoreboard in the 2015 ICC World Cup. David Warner absolutely murdered the Aghan bowling scoring 178 off just 133 balls. New Zealand finishes the list to teams to score 400+ totals in the one-day internationals.
