IND VS WI: List of interesting stats and approaching milestone ahead of 1st ODI
1. 1000th ODI
When the coin will be tossed in the air in the first ODI on Sunday, India will become the first-ever team to play 1,000 ODIs in the history of the sport. Australia are second in the list, having played 958 ODIs, ahead of Pakistan with 936 ODIs.
2. West Indies could square it level
If West Indies defeat India in the first ODI, the Caribbean side would go level in the head-to-head win record. As of now, West Indies have 63 wins over India in the ODIs, while the Men in Blue are ahead with one victory.
3. Rohit Sharma could eclipse Sachin Tendulkar
R. Sharma is just 50 runs away from eclipsing Sachin Tendulkar’s record against West Indies. Rohit has scored 1,523 runs against the Windies in 33 ODIs at a fine average of 60.92. Tendulkar, on the other hand, scored 1,573 runs in 39 ODIs at 52.43.
A century in the first ODI would see Rohit also equal the Master Blaster in most tons scored against these opponents in the 50-over format.
4. Virat Kohli could equal Ricky Ponting
The former India skipper, Virat Kohli, has 70 international centuries to his name. The former Indian skipper has not hit an international hundred since 2019. If he does on Sunday, he would equal Ricky Ponting’s feat of 71 international centuries.
5. Jason Holder
Jason Holder, who made his ODI debut in 2013, is 46 runs away completing 2,000 runs in the format. His current ODI run tally is 1,954 in 100 innings with an average of 24.74. He’ll be the fifth West Indian to have 2,000 or more runs and 100 wickets in ODIs after Dwayne Bravo, Carl Hooper, Chris Gayle and Vivian Richards.
6. Yuzvendra Chahal
Ahead of the 1st ODI, Yuzvendra Chahal has 99 wickets in 59 ODIs. He is eyeing to become the 23rd Indian bowler to take 100 wickets.
