IND vs WI: As India prepares to play its 1000th One-Day International, legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar termed the achievement as a “huge milestone” for the entire country and the Rohit Sharma-led team on Friday.

When India takes on West Indies in the first match of the series on Sunday, it will become the first team to play 1000 ODIs.

“India playing the 1000th ODI is a huge milestone. The first ODI was played in 1974, it was only possible because of the past cricketers, current cricketers, the past and current board members,” Tendulkar on his 100 MB.

“And not to forget the most important people, our Indian cricket team well-wishers, from the past generations. And the ones who are today with us,” he added.

The former batter also wished Team India the very best for the upcoming West Indies series.

“I want to say it is an achievement for all of us and the entire nation should be proud of this. And hope Indian cricket continues to grow from strength to strength. I wish them all the very best for the coming series and especially for the 1000th ODI,” said Tendulkar.

From February 6 to February 16, Team India will play three ODIs at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. Followed by a T20I series at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata.

Currently, at 999 matches, India has 518 wins, 431 losses, the nineties, and 41 matches ending with no result. In 2002, India played its 500th ODI, and two decades later, it would surpass the milestone of 1000 ODIs.
