India vs West Indies: The three-match One-Day International series between India and the West Indies begins today. The Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad will host this match between the two teams. This will be the Indian cricket team’s 1000th match in this format. For the first time in history, a team will play 1000 One-Day Internationals.
The 1000th One-Day International will be memorable.
The 100th One-Day International will be a memorable occasion for Team India. India’s first One-Day International (ODI) was against England in 1974. The Man in Blue has won two World Cups in the 48-year history of one-day internationals (1983, 2011). In 2000 and 2013, the team also won the ICC Champions Trophy.
India has played 999 One-Day Internationals (ODIs) so far. During this time, the team won 518 games and lost 431 of them. There were 9 ties, and 41 matches ended in a draw. After India, Australia has played the second-most ODIs (958). Pakistan, on the other hand, is ranked third. Pakistan has played 936 One-Day Internationals (ODIs) so far.
Kohli will be captaining the team for the first time.
Following Virat Kohli’s removal from the captaincy, this will be Rohit Sharma’s first series as full-time ODI captain. Virat will also be seen for the first time under Rohit’s captaincy. Virat’s sixth ODI captain will be Rohit. Virat had previously played under the captaincy of (MS Dhoni, Virender Sehwag, Suresh Raina, Gautam Gambhir and KL Rahul).
In the last 8 to 9 years, this pair has performed admirably for Team India. Fans will have the same expectations from both teams in the West Indies series. In this format, Rohit has led the team a total of ten times. During this time, he won eight matches and only lost two.
Nothing compares to a victory for the Windies.
West Indies recently defeated England 3-2 in a five-match T20 series. If Pollard and Co. are to dominate even against Team India, they will have to be strong in all three aspects of the game. Jason Holder, Brandon King, and Kemar Roach are three players on the team who are in excellent form right now.
