Thanks to Jo Solomon, December 14, 1960 became the day of the first ever Tied Test. Mike Atherton wrote this article about the role Solomon played in one of the most famous tests in cricket history.

In the comments below they said it was the last odi played in whites.
Yeah I read that, but ODIs played since the 80s had coloured clothing. What was different for that particular match? Unless it was a pre planned send off type thing.

Only the Tri Series in Australia was played with white balls and coloured uniforms and for a while England refused eventually playing in all light blue before eventually embracing it, for a long time - games in England were still red ball and whites for a long time after - white balls / coloured clothing was part of World Series Cricket introduced by Kerry Packer

No idea mate, every team had their own strip by then.
