Dutch all-rounder Bas de Leede found himself in an unwanted record-breaking position during the ongoing ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023.
During the high-stakes encounter against the formidable Australian team at Delhi’s Arun Jaitley Stadium, de Leede unfortunately etched his name in the history books for conceding the most runs in a One-Day International (ODI) match. The lopsided contest saw Australia’s batters mercilessly pounce on de Leede’s bowling, leaving the young Netherlands cricketer grasping for answers.
