For a considerable amount of time, India has been the most prosperous team in the 50-over format. They have, I think, overwhelmingly controlled the past ten years. But there are days when you don't feel well. And this squad has also experienced a lot of them. They were knocked out for 92 in less than 31 overs against the Kiwis on January 31, 2019.
They were on the verge of reaching their lowest ODI total—54 against Sri Lanka in 2000—at 35-6 in 13.1 overs. However, they got closer to the 100-run threshold thanks to a brilliant blow from Hardik Pandya and a 25-run partnership between Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal. It was the first time India had played without both Dhoni and Kohli since 2015. Boult completed his quota of 10 overs with an outstanding bowling result of 5 for 21.
Rohit Sharma, the acting captain, played in his 200th ODI. However, this historic game was not worth recalling because India was dismissed for just 92 runs, the lowest total in their history.
The following five are India's lowest-scoring totals in the 50-over format:
|88||29.3||2.98||2||v New Zealand||Dambulla||10 Aug 2010|
|79||34.2||2.3||1||v Pakistan||Sialkot||13 Oct 1978|
|78||24.1||3.22||2||v Sri Lanka||Kanpur||24 Dec 1986|
|63||25.5||2.43||1||v Australia||Sydney||8 Jan 1981|
|54||26.3||2.03||2||v Sri Lanka||Sharjah||29 Oct 2000|
In their 288-run victory over the Indians, Ross Taylor and Scott Styris scored 95 and 89 runs, respectively. An in-form Indian team was dismissed in reply after just 88 runs were scored in 29.3 overs. Because of his valour, Ross Taylor was named Man of the Match.
Back when the 50-over format had only recently gained popularity. This was, in actuality, the 55th ODI ever played. On a hard Sialkot pitch, India elected to bat first. Furthermore, nobody other than Mohinder Amarnath and Yashpal Sharma was able to surpass the two-digit threshold. 199 balls remained in the play as Pakistan won by 8 wickets.
Rain forced the game to be limited to 46 overs each side, but Sri Lanka still managed to score 195 runs. The Indian team lost by 117 runs as a result of their inability to mount a defence. In addition to taking four wickets and scoring 31 runs, Arjuna Ranatunga was named Man of the Match.
The bowlers from Australia were unmatched on a sunny Sydney morning. Greg Chappell was able to take five wickets and limit the opposition to 63 runs. Australia needed 174 balls to win by 9 wickets. The Man of the Match went to Greg Chappell.
With the aid of Sanath Jayasuriya's record 189-run innings, Sri Lanka amassed 299 runs. In response, India was bowled out for a meagre 54 runs, with only three and five runs scored by Ganguly and Tendulkar, respectively. The fact that it was the tournament final caused many supporters to be hurt.
