India have now won 400 and lost 367 out of 808 ODIs they played so far. 6 of them were tied and 35 no results.

The win against Mahela Jayawardene's men marked India's 400th win in one-day internationals after making their ODI debut on July 13, 1974 under Ajit Wadekar's captaincy, while Team India tasted its first success on July 11, 1975 during a World Cup match against East Africa.

Since 1974, India has never looked back as the team has notched up many records till date and will continue to achieve many more and bring laurels to the country, which already includes two World Cup wins under the able guidance of Kapil Dev (1983) and MS Dhoni (2011).

With the 400th win, the team is going strong and will look forward to break more records in the coming days.
