Viv Richards’ 189* is also the highest score by a No. 4 batsman in ODI cricket.

3: A notable dominance by West Indian cricketers, with three of their finest talents securing positions in the top 10.

167.01: Chris Gayle, the power hitter of the West Indies, scored 162 runs off 97 balls at a staggering strike rate of 167.01. This is the highest strike rate among the players who have scored 150+ against England. Moreover, his knock consisted of 14 towering sixes, his second-most sixes in an ODI innings.

12: The number of players with 150 or more runs against England in an ODI innings.

150: One of the most surprising aspects of this list is the absence of an Indian batsman in the top 10, considering India’s rich cricketing history. The highest individual score by an Indian batter against England stands at 150, a remarkable achievement by Yuvraj Singh in Cuttack in 2017.
