After John Davison's fastest-ever ICC Cricket World Cup century against West Indies, his Canada colleague Ishwar Maraj broke a batting record of a completely different sort against South Africa on Thursday.

Maraj's innings of 53 not out off 155 balls is the slowest scoring innings of over 50 in an ODI, at just 34.19 runs per 100 balls.

Slowest ODI innings (minimum 50 runs)
