Wahab Riaz

ODI Records: Most runs conceded by a Pakistani bowler in an ODI

Wahab Riaz ranks at the top of this infamous list of the most runs conceded by a Pakistani bowler in an ODI and unfortunately for him, this is not the only time his name appears on this list. In 2016, England scored 444 runs, the highest ODI total at that time. Riaz was a massive contributor to that record. The right-arm fast bowler was taken to the cleaners conceding 110 runs in his quota of 10 overs. Alex Hales scored 171 runs in just 122 balls and scored 44 runs in just 26 balls against Riaz. Unsurprisingly, Pakistan lost the match by 169 runs as they were bowled out for just 275 runs.

Hasan Ali

Hasan Ali is ranked second on the list. David Warner in 2017, went all guns blazing against his favourite opposition, Pakistan. Ali conceded 100 runs in his nine overs at an economy rate of 11.11. Warner in particular was at the forefront of the attack against Ali and scored 64 runs in just 26 balls against the Pakistani pacer. Despite conceding 369 runs in the first innings, Pakistan only lost by 57 runs in Adelaide thanks to a century from Babar Azam.

Wahab Riaz

Once again Wahab Riaz appears on this list. Pakistan and South Africa went head-to-head in Johannesburg in 2013 and unfortunately for the visitors, lead pacer, Mohammad Irfan suffered an upset stomach which meant that Riaz had to bowl his full quota of overs. In his 10 overs, Riaz conceded 93 runs in 10 overs but dismissed centurion, Hashim Amla and the dangerous-looking, Faf du Plessis. Centuries from Amla and skipper, AB de Villiers and a 45-run-19-ball knock from du Plessis allowed South Africa to score 343 runs and eventually win the match by 34 runs.

Bilawal Bhatti

Pakistani bowler Bilawal Bhatti

Unfortunately for Bilawal Bhatti, his expensive outing turned out to be his last ODI match for the ‘Men in Green’. Bhatti is joint third with Riaz on this list for the most runs conceded by a Pakistani bowler in an ODI. As has been the case in this list so far, Bhatti’s poor performance too came away from home in Napier against New Zealand. Bhatti conceded 93 runs in 10 overs and was struck for 15 boundaries including five sixes. Centurion, Ross Taylor particularly contributed the most to Bhatti’s misery as the veteran Kiwi batter scored 40 runs in just 19 balls. The hosts scored 369 runs in the first innings thanks to centuries from Kane Williamson and Taylor and won the match by 119 runs after bowling out Pakistan for 250 runs in the second innings.

Naved-ul-Hasan

Pakistani bowler Naved ul Hasan

Naved-ul-Hasan was a regular for the Pakistan team during the 2003-2010 period. The fast bowler had a pretty poor game against South Africa in 2007 at Centurion. Hasan conceded 92 runs in eight overs at an economy rate of 11.50. The right-arm fast bowler also picked up two wickets dismissing Mark Boucher who had scored 78 runs in just 38 balls and Justin Kemp. Fifty-plus scores from AB de Villiers, Graeme Smith, Jacques Kallis and Boucher allowed South Africa to score 392 runs and win the match by 164 runs.

Shaheen Afridi

Shaheen Afridi is the latest entrant to this list for the most runs conceded by a Pakistani bowler in an ODI. The Pakistani fast bowler was the leader of their depleted bowling attack in the ODI World Cup 2023. In a match against New Zealand at Chinnaswamy, Afridi was hit for 13 boundaries in the small stadium. In his 10 overs, the left-arm fast bowler conceded 90 runs as New Zealand scored 401 runs. Thanks to the rain interruption in the second innings and a scintillating century from Fakhar Zaman allowed Pakistan to chase down the DLS-revised target in 25.3 overs for the loss of just one wicket.

Sohail Tanvir

Sohail Tanvir’s poor performance came against arch-rivals, India. Fortunately for him, Pakistan won the match comprehensively. This is the first instance in this list that the innings came at home. In his 10 overs in Karachi during Asia Cup, 2008, Tanvir conceded 87 runs in 10 overs as he was smashed for 10 boundaries. He dismissed the top-scorer from the Indian team, MS Dhoni. The hosts won the match comfortably while chasing 309 with eight wickets in hand and 27 balls remaining.

Wahab Riaz

Tanvir is joined by Wahab Riaz who too conceded 87 runs in his 10 overs against arch-rivals, India. It was an important match in the 2017 Champions Trophy. Virat Kohli scored 21 runs in 11 balls against Riaz while opener, Rohit Sharma scored 22 runs in 17 balls against the Pakistani quick. India went on to score 319 runs in the first innings in 48 overs. Unfortunately for Riaz and Pakistan, India won the match by 124 runs (D/L Method).

Waqar Younis

ODI Records: Most runs conceded by a Pakistani bowler in an ODI

Waqar Younis is the oldest entrant on this list as the veteran pacer conceded 86 runs in 10 overs against Sri Lanka. Marvan Atapattu who missed out on his century in the first innings by six runs was great against the toe-crusher. Younis came back strongly as he dismissed Mahela Jayawardene and Kumar Dharmasena.

Wahab Riaz

Once again it is Wahab Riaz and once again the poor performance came against arch-rivals, India. Riaz conceded 86 runs in 9.2 overs while picking up two crucial wickets. The Pakistani fast bowler picked up the wickets of the two Indian openers, Gautam Gambhir and Virender Sehwag who were the top-scorers in the match. The Indian team scored 330 runs in the first innings and bowled out Pakistan for just 190 runs registering an emphatic 140-run victory.
