Most boundaries by batters in One-day international

Even after so many years, the ODI format of cricket still has a special kind of thrill and excitement. Among all the three formats of the game, the ODI format holds a special kind of place in international cricket.

The 50-over format is a real test of the talent of a cricketer. It tests the patience and the decision-making power of a player who is showing his brilliance on the ground.

One of the primary attractions of the ODI format is the batters from the team. They are the real contributors to keeping the momentum going and not boring the viewers. Whenever you go to the online bookmakers there are always odds on the number of boundaries to be scored in the match and even who will be the batter who will hit more fours.
