How One Day or Limited Overs International Cricket came into Being


Well-known member
I think it would be nice to share a small story from the past which is how The One Day International or The Limited Overs International cricket came into being and we all know how entertaining it is.

So, In 1971 A test match was to be played between England and Australia in Melbourne, Australia and rain washed out the first three days of the match and to entertain the crowd the Officials decided to arrange a Limited overs match where in both teams will play each other once as in test matches both teams play twice both Bat and Ball. It was new experience for the players, Officials and of course, for the spectators and everyone enjoyed this game and after that One Day International Cricket was made official with different set of rules.
