Highest totals in men’s ODIs without a six

Apart from taking regular singles and doubles, hitting boundaries and sixes is also an important aspect in white-ball format. If a team wants to cross the 300-run mark in an ODI match, then hitting maximums is very important, but there have been few instances when a team has not hit a single six but managed to score 300 runs. On that note, let us take a look at highest totals in men’s ODI without a six.

England vs Australia 2016, Sydney (333/6)

On the back of excellent century from Jonathan Trott, team England went on to score 333/6 runs without hitting a single maximum. Skipper Andrew Strauss also played a good knock of 63 runs. Despite Three Lions posting a strong total, Australia went on to win the match by just two wickets. Trott was adjudged player of the match for his excellent knock.

South Africa vs England, 2022 Durham (333/5)
