Numbers To Note, 4th ODI
November 24, 2008
700 -- Number of One-Day Internationals played by India. They became the first side to reach this landmark.
44 -- Third shortest result oriented match involving India. The shortest remains 30-overs match against England [Images] at Chandigarh in 1984-85, followed by 32-overs match against Pakistan at Gujranwala in 1989-90
23 -- Number of sixes hit by Yuvraj against England, most by any Indian batsman. Before this match, Yuvraj was at level with Sourav Ganguly [Images] with 20 sixes.
6 -- Virender Sehwag [Images] became the sixth Indian batsman to aggregate 6,000 runs in ODIs after Sachin Tendulkar [Images], Sourav Ganguly, Rahul Dravid [Images], Mohammad Azharuddin and Yuvraj Singh [Images]. Sehwag's average is the lowest among the six, but his strike-rate is the highest.
2 -- Yusuf Pathan became only the second Indian batsman to clobber the only ball faced for a six in a one-day international. Guess, who was the first to do so? Venkatesh Prasad, who achieved the feat against Australia [Images] at Nairobi in 2000-01.
