 3) South Africa – 97 Times

South Africa, despite being a strong cricket team with world-class players, has often been labeled as “chokers” due to their inability to win major ICC tournaments, particularly in knockout matches.

However, this tag is not entirely fair as it is a combination of their own mistakes and some unfortunate circumstances.

South Africa has a well-balanced team with a formidable batting lineup and a potent bowling attack. In fact, they are the only team to have scored the most 400+ runs in ODIs, showcasing their batting prowess.

The Proteas have crossed the 300+ scores in ODIs on 97 times, making them the third team to achieve this feat most number of times.
