The match between South Africa and New Zealand in Kimberley was not only historic because it was the latter’s first series win in South Africa in any format of the game, but it also saw five run-outs in an innings—10th time in one-day cricket history.

No ODI has ever witnessed more than five run-outs in one innings.

In 1975, the West Indies achieved the mark for the first time when in the final of the debut World Cup, five Australian batsmen got run-out, mainly thanks to the Windies’ brilliant fielding who won the historic match at Lord’s by 17 runs.

The record is still unbroken since then. It had also been unmatched for 13 years until 1988 when five players got run-out in a match between Sri Lanka and New Zealand. The list has been expanding since then and the yesterday’s ODI was the 10th such match.

Below is a list of all the matches when five batsmen got run-out in one innings:
