Sri Lanka produced a strange innings of 55 runs all out. There they have become owners of many unwanted records. Let’s see them together…
7- Seven Sri Lankan batsmen were dismissed before scoring more than one run. No batsman has ever been dismissed by a team for one or less runs in a World Cup. Five Lankan batsmen were dismissed for zero runs in the India-Sri Lanka match. Kusal Mendis and Charith Asalanka were dismissed for 1 run. This is the first time that Sri Lanka has witnessed this phenomenon in an ODI outside the World Cup. This is also the first time India have dismissed seven batters by one run or less.

2- Sri Lanka’s first five batsmen scored just two runs in Mumbai on Thursday. Which is the lowest number of runs from the first five batsmen of any team in ODI history. And it can be seen only during the World Cup, the first five batters could not reach double figures in only one match. On that day in 2015, however, Pakistan managed to score 8 runs against the West Indies.
14- The 14 runs scored by the first seven batsmen of the Lankan batting order also registered an embarrassing record. No other team’s first seven batsmen have scored so few runs in a match in ODI history. Earlier, Canada had the minimum of 19 runs. However, it was the Lankans who embarrassed Canada that day. In no other match did the first seven batting team score less than 20 runs.
1- Sri Lanka’s top-order batsmen hit just one of the eight batsmen on the day. Since the 1996 World Cup, the team’s top eight batsmen have hit as few fours in a single match. It is also the lowest number of top eight batsmen in any innings in ODIs since 2000, where at least five of the eight have batted.
Sri Lanka lost 6 wickets for 1-14 runs. This is the first time that the country has lost 6 wickets for less than 20 runs in any Test player in the World Cup. And overall, only once in the World Cup has a team lost the first 6 wickets. Sri Lanka also contributed to that, but in a different role. In 2003 World Cup, 6 wickets of Canada were taken by Lankan bowlers in 12 runs.
29/8 – The Lankans lost eight wickets before crossing 30 runs, setting an undesired record. They became the first team to lose eight wickets for less than thirty runs in the World Cup. Earlier, no team had lost the first eight wickets by a minimum of 31 runs in the ODI World Cup. That team is Canada, the opponent is Sri Lanka. That 2003 World Cup match, where Sri Lanka bowled out Canada for 36 runs.
5- Sri Lanka has been a part of the record of highest number of ‘calls’ by any team in one match in the World Cup. The highest call record in the World Cup innings is 5! In Mumbai against India, the Lankan five – Pathum Nisanka, Dimuth Karunaratne, Sadira Samarawickrama, Dusan Hemant, Dushmanth Chamira – were all dismissed for zero runs.
1- Charith Asalanka scored only one run after playing 24 balls at number five. There is no precedent for scoring so few runs in at least 24 balls, among the country’s top seven Test playing batsmen on the World Cup stage. No matter what position you look at, there is only one more Test player in the country. In the 1999 World Cup, West Indies’ Rion King played a 30-ball 1-run innings, batting at number 10 against Ajid in that match.
3- Three batsmen from one team scored above 80, but none scored a century – India vs Sri Lanka first in World Cup. Shubman Gill was dismissed for 92 runs in India’s innings. Virat Kohli was 12 runs away from a century. Shreyas Iyer is out for 82 runs.
