    the first ever player/first ODI

    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.

    First ODI I ever watched was in between West Indies and Pakistan (I think) at Perth in the 1996/97 season.

    First player: S. Waugh

    Match: I remember watching many a game through 92-95. First I remember really clearly is the Bevan four match.

    I'm not too dissimilar a batsman to Bradman.
    Both of us have batting averages below 100.

    First odis, Ind-WI-Aus tri-series in Aus just b4 the WC91/92 But remember the WC more clearly than those matches, maybe cause missed most of them. I remember the 2nd final though, Steve Waugh dropped a simple caught and bowled of Sachin when something went into his eye, Border was abt 2 feet away. It was a funny incident and gave Ind some hope, maybe thats why I remember it, Ind lost the match though ..

    First players, Sachin, Kapil, Shastri, Azhar, Srikanth (he got stuck in mind cause of the funny thing with his nose, can't remember clearly..)
    India to be No.1 someday soon !! :)
