India becomes first team to play 900 ODIs
17 October 2016 Current Affairs: India's ODI against New Zealand at Dharamshala on 16th oct 2016 is the team's 900th making it the world first side to achieve a milestone. 

900th One Day International (ODI) match between India and  New Zealand was held at the HPCA stadium in Dharamshala. Out of the 899 ODI's, India has won 454, lost 399 tied seven, while 39 have abandoned.

India played its first ever ODI in 1974 against England at Leeds which ended in a victory for the hosts. The match was part of a series that would be famously known as the ‘Summer of  42,’ based on the number of runs India managed to score in the second of a three match Test series preceding the ODIs. 

India have won two World Cups in 1983 and 2011 and have topped the ICC ODI Rankings multiple times.

India won both the matches comfortably and became the number one team in the ICC Test rankings. The hosts then completed a series whitewash on New Zealand by winning the third Test at Indore.
