Q: Which was the first team to pass the 300 mark in an ODI?

A :England scored 334 for four against India at Lord's during the first match of the first World Cup in June 1975, Amiss again scoring a hundred. This was the infamous match in which India, batting second and chasing 335 to win, played as if for a draw, scoring only 132 for three in their 60 overs.
Q: Who scored the first individual 150?

A: Glenn Turner scored 171 not out for New Zealand against East Africa in the first World Cup, a score which would remain unmatched in ODIs for eight years, when India's Kapil Dev scored 175* vs Zimbabwe during the 1983 World Cup.
Q: Which bowler was first to take an ODI five-fer?

A: Dennis Lillee took five for 34 for Australia against Pakistan, again in the the first World Cup, helping Australia to a 73 run victory.
Q: And the first six-fer?

A: Lillee's record was broken just eleven days later during the same competition by his countryman Gary Gilmour, who took six for 14 to help dismiss England for only 93 in the semi-final.
Q: And who took the first seven-fer?

A: Winston Davis took seven for 51 for West Indies against Australia in the 1983 World Cup.
Q: Which was the first non-wicket-keeper to hold four catches in the same match?

A: New Zealand's John Bracewell, playing as a substitute, held four catches to help defeat Australia by three wickets at Adelaide in November 1980.
