IND vs WI 1st ODI: Privilege to lead India in 1000th ODI says Rohit Sharma

IND vs WI 1st ODI: India skipper Rohit Sharma has said that leading the Men in Blue in their 1000th One-Day International will be an honour.

The team will accomplish this milestone in the first One-Day International against the West Indies at the Narendra Modi Stadium. India has 518 wins and 431 loses in 999 One-Day Internationals. In 2002, the Men in Blue played their 500th match, and now, two decades later, they have surpassed the milestone of 1000 ODIs.

“It will be a historic moment as we play the 1000th ODI. I would like to congratulate all the players who have taken part in this long journey. It is an honour for me to lead the side in that game, it will be a privilege to lead the boys. Our journey has been fantastic over the years. So many players have tried to put their best foot forward, we will also try to keep raising the bar,” said Rohit in a video posted on BCCI.TV.

Kapil Dev captained India in the 100th One-Day International, while Sourav Ganguly led the side in the 500th ODI.

With 958 ODIs played, Australia is second in the world, while Pakistan has played 936 ODIs. After 761 matches in the 50-over format, England sits in sixth place on the list of most ODIs played.

“It has gone from strength to strength. We have had couple of transitions and that shows the quality we have and the bench strength we have. We have eventually come to this landmark of 1000 ODIs, it is a big number and it is a testament to the matches we have played over the years,” said Kohli.
