The biggest upset now in One day cricket is Bangladesh\'s upset of Australia in 2005: The day the team with the worst ODI record - by some distance - upstaged the mightiest XI in world cricket. Before the match, Bangladesh had won only nine of their 107 one-dayers - including just two against teams outside Zimbabwe and non-Test playing nations - but they made hay under the Cardiff sun thanks mainly to a sensational century from Mohammad Ashraful. Still smarting from a heavy defeat from England in the first game, they restricted the power-packed Australian line-up to 249 before executing their run-chase to perfection!!

Yes we can say that. Nobody imagined India would lift the World Cup that year and that too beating the then mighty West Indies. Only the then Australian skipper was proved right when he called India the \'dark horses\' before the World cup began.

Yes. At that time, Windies were the undisputed ODI team, having won in 1975 and 1979 world Cup. And India was nowhere in the run. But, 1983 changed all that to produce the biggest upset in the history of ODIs.
