The first captain to concede a One Day International match against Pakistan


Bishen Singh Bedi became the first captain in November 1978 to concede a One Day International cricket match against Pakistan at Sahiwal. India, with eight wickets in hand, required only 23 runs from 14 balls to win the match. Sarfraz Nawaz bowled four consecutive bouncers and not one was called wide by the Pakistani umpires. Reacting to this, Bedi called the batsmen from the crease and conceded the match in protest.
