ODI cricket came into being in 1971. Initially it faced harsh resistance from the traditional school of thought. Since then this version has sustained all the odds to establish itself as a most entertaining package of the game. This format gave birth to the initial version of the world cup in 1975 which further opened more avenues of entertainment and excitement. The odi format has seen countless moments of glory all through the history. But the most striking feature of this version of cricket is the urgency in the batsmen to score runs quickly.
