South Africa and Sri Lanka recorded the highest run aggregate in an ICC ODI World Cup match during their clash at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi on Saturday.

Batting first, South Africa piled on a mammoth 428 for five, registering the highest total in a World Cup match. Centuries from Quinton de Kock and Rassie van der Dussen set up the innings before Aiden Markam’s 49-ball ton gave South Africa the finish. Markam’s century was also the fastest by any batter in ODI World Cup history.

In reply, the fifties from Kusal Mendis, Charith Aslanka and Dasun Shanaka helped Sri Lanka exhibit a fightback against a flurry of wickets. Sri Lanka folded for 326, combining for an aggregate of 754 runs.

The combined aggregate surpassed the previous best of 714 runs from an Australia-Bangladesh clash in Nottingham in 2019 – the only other match with a 700-plus aggregate.
