Continuing in our series of pieces on each country’s ODI history, we finally reach South Africa- the last country in our series. From post-Apartheid 1991 to 2012 (before the start of the South Africa - England ODI Series), South Africa played 471 matches and won 294 with a win loss ratio of 1.84 (the highest amongst all the teams in ODI history – which is very interesting). Their highest score is 438, lowest 69. They have finished as semi-finalists thrice in the World Cup (1992, 1999, 2007) and won the ICC Champions Trophy in 1998.
We present three lists – of players, batsmen and bowlers. The minimum qualification to be on these lists is to have played 75 matches. A match is considered in this system only when there is a result, and if the player has bowled or batted, as the case may be.
