About One Day International
One Day International (ODI) is a form of limited-overs cricket, in which each team plays a single innings consisting of a maximum of 50 overs. It is one of the three formats of international cricket, alongside Test cricket and Twenty20 International (T20I).
ODI cricket was first played in 1971 when England and Australia faced each other in the first-ever ODI match at Melbourne. Since then, ODI cricket has become one of the most popular and widely played formats of cricket, with teams from all around the world regularly competing in ODI series and tournaments.
ODI matches are typically played over the course of a single day, hence the name "One Day International." Each team is allowed to field 11 players, and the team that scores the most runs during their innings wins the match. In the event of a tie, a Super Over may be played to determine the winner.
The ODI format has produced many memorable moments in cricket history, including some of the most famous matches and performances of all time. It has also provided a platform for many of the game's greatest players to showcase their skills on the international stage.
Today, ODI cricket remains a popular and highly competitive form of the sport, with international teams regularly competing in bilateral series, as well as in global tournaments such as the ICC Cricket World Cup.
