On July 6, by posting a total of 313 runs during the second game of the two-match ODI series against Netherlands at Amstelveen, Sri Lanka created a new world record of scoring 300 or more runs in four successive one-day internationals. This broke the previous record of three 300-plus scores in as many as matches jointly held by two teams – Pakistan and Australia. 

Just for record, Pakistan still remains the only the side in the annals of one-day internationals to amass 300 totals in five consecutive innings while batting first. In November 2002, during the first three matches of the five-match ODI series against Zimbabwe in their backyard, Pakistan registered three successive totals of 300 runs or more. In the fifth game, the again batted first and posted a 300 total while fifth 300 total was registered in the second match of subsequent ODI series against South Africa in South Africa at Port Elizabeth on December 11, 2002. 


Curiously enough, Sri Lanka has now smashed 1398 runs respectively in their last four ODIs – the highest by any team in four successive games. For readers interest the accompanying table has the complete details.
