You cannot really get a 'perfect' score in cricket. And there are no 'fouls', runs scored other than with the bat are called extras. The object is to score as many runs as possible and to limit the number scored by the other side.

You might want to check out this link for more background information on cricket. A very high scoring ODI might have scores in excess of 315 in each innings, though higher scores have of course been achieved in recent times.

In a 50 over ODI, a perfect score for the batting team would surely be 1800 for zero wickets (a six off each of the 300 deliveries as there were no "fouls", or "extras"). For the fielding team, a score of 0 for the loss of all 11 wickets in 11 deliveries.

But neither are ever, ever, ever going to happen.

There's no need for 11 deliveries actually. After ten wickets have fallen, the team is considered all-out, so in reality, a score of 1800/0, followed by 0/10 for the other team.

Just to be a pain, it would be 2100 not 1800 off the 50 overs. 7 can be run off each ball. Needless to say, I don't think the likes of Inzamam Ul Haq and Darren Lehmann would have the fitness to do it! Has anyone ever run a 7 in a test?
