A very similar thread to Waughney's thread. What's the first ODI match you remember?
For me it was during India's tour of SA in 1992. India lost the 7 match series 2-5 if i remember correctly. The first ODI I remember is when in one of the matches India was 147 all out.
The first players I heard of were Sachin Tendulkar, Kapil Dev, Azhar, Jonty Rhodes and Kepler Wessels.
