t took India nearly 22 years of playing ODI cricket to cross 300 for the first time in a matchand they were the last major cricket team to reach that score. Even Zimbabwe had achieved the feat many years earlier. But once there, India have now made scores of 300 or more, more times than any other team. The Mohali ODI provided the 65th such instance, and India have now overtaken Australia at 64. Here's a list of ODI teams that have crossed 300 in an ODI at least once.

Interesting record but sad we lost more matches than any other team in the category but still a great feat achieved. I guess we could get a clearer picture if the total number of matches played was also added to this

I have to suspect the stats here. Coz Aussies......i cann recall 4 odd losses after scoring 300+ instantly. There has to be more losses than what i can recall!Once after scoring 434, once after scoring 350+, twice after scoring 330 odd........1st one was of course against SA, and the next 3 against Kiwis. And these stats just list out 4 losses! :O

That means i have witnessed all four matches in which Aussies have lost after scoring 300+.Or it can be other way round may be? Whenever i witness, Aussies dont defend that 300+ score? They almost gave away that 350 run match to us in 2009. We snatched defeat from the jaws of victory, thanks to Jaddu Sir, who became over-enthusiastic.

So, basically Aussies are likely to win when they cross 300, but if they do too well & cross 330, they have a small chance of loosing... 4 out of 29 games....
