First Indian Batsman To Score a Century In ODI Cricket.

Kapil Dev was the first Indian batsman to score a century in One Day International (ODI) cricket. This century was also the first by an Indian in a world cup game.

He scored 175 unbeaten runs against Zimbabwe on 18 June 1983 at Nevill Ground, Tunbridge Wells, England. Kapil Dev's spectacular helped India beat Zimbabwe by 31. 

This was the 20th match of the Prudential World Cup - the tournament which was ultimately won by India.
