He is one of 36 New Zealand Test cricketers to have scored 1,000 runs and one of just six New Zealand-ers to have reached the double of 1,000 ODI runs and 100 wickets. On 28 January 2007, in Perth, Oram smashed an unbeaten 101 off 72 balls in an ODI against Australia. It was at the time the fastest ever ODI century by a New Zealand-er. His 137 run partnership with Brendon McCullum was, at the time, the highest ever for the New Zealand 6th wicket. He injured his left ring finger in an ODI prior to the World Cup, and, on 28 February, with the tournament just weeks away. Oram is on the Lord's Honours Boards for his Test century against England in 2008.On 2 September 2009, Oram took a hat trick against Sri Lanka in a Twenty20 International in Colombo. On 13 October 2009, Oram announced his retirement from Test cricket. During the 2011 World Cup he took arguably the best catch of the tournament and helped the Black Caps take a well deserved victory against a favourite South African side.
