In an One Day International (ODI) match, an innings compromises of 50 overs. So if two full innings were played, that would be a total of 100 overs.

However, the likelihood of this occurring is fairly low, as that would result in the match coming down to the final ball. This would mean that out of two teams, Team A batted first and didn't loose all their wickets, and Team B have paced their innings at a very close run rate to that of Team A, which is not the strategy teams use when chasing totals.

Usually though a full one day match will use up around 90 - 95 overs, however if a 'mismatch' (when a stronger team plays a much weaker team) or collapse occurs, then around 50 or 60 overs could be expected in a full match.
