Australia have always been a nation that has produced quality cricketers. Be it batsmen, bowlers and all-rounders, the majority of the players made waves and excelled in their roles quite perfectly. Their secret to winning the most games is because of the fact that they operate as a team and work in tandem to reap rewards.
They don’t often rely on individuals and when they perform in a collective rhythm, they are able to churn out results in their favour, which is why they are the most successful team in the world. Case in point, the country has a rich history of producing world-class fast bowlers in the sport of cricket.
At times, even the top bowlers might have off days at work and this happens when they lose confidence in them. In the process, they would go on to leak too many runs. Let’s take a look at the four Australians who conceded the most runs in an ODI match.
1. Mick Lewis
Mick Lewis had a terrible day at the office during an ODI game against South Africa in 2006. He went on to concede too many runs in the game. Overall, he conceded as many as 113 runs, which was the most runs given away by an Australian in ODIs, until it was equalled by Adam Zampa in 2023.
2. Adam Zampa
Adam Zampa failed to bring the best out of himself in an ODI against South Africa in 2023. The right-arm leg-break spinner conceded as many as 113 runs as he was smoked for humongous sixes and fours by South African batters with relative ease.
3. Cameron Green
Cameron Green is one of the cricketers who quickly rose through the ranks and performed at a high level as an all-rounder in international cricket. Nevertheless, he had a forgettable day against India in an ODI game in 2023. He conceded 103 runs and bowled the second-most expensive spell in Australian history.
4. Andrew Tye
Andrew Tye comes next on the list as he conceded as many as 100 runs in an ODI match. He conceded these many runs in a match against England in 2018, which is the third-most expensive spell bowled by an Australian.
