Clarke made the comments following Australia’s record 275-run win over Afghanistan in Perth, where star batsman David Warner hit 178 off just 133 balls.
India’s Rohit Sharma holds the record for the highest ODI score after belting an incredible 264 against Sri Lanka last November.
West Indies big-hitter Chris Gayle hit the biggest World Cup score of 215 last week against Zimbabwe.
Clarke says there are only a select few batsman who could crack the 300-run barrier, and they’d need to have a lot of variables in their favour.
“Someone like Davey (David Warner), or Chris Gayle or AB de Villiers … on a smaller ground I think they possibly could,” Clarke is quoted as saying by NDTV Sports.
“You probably have to open the batting so you have the full 50 overs.
“In this game at the moment who knows, we are seeing so many different shots, different deliveries, so much power.
“There is handful of players round the world who probably could do it.”
