India Vs Bermmuda : Slew of records

Indias second match in world cup against Bermuda saw a lot rcords being broken. After great setback from Bangladesh India recovered back fullly and all ther hope of makin it to worlcup second round depends upon tomorrows match against Sri Lanka.

Commin to India win, India's 413/5 is their highest-ever total in ODIs and the highest ever in the World Cup, the previous best being Sri Lanka's 398/5 against Kenya at Kandy in 1996.

While India's highest total in the World Cup till Monday was 373/6 against Sri Lanka at Taunton in 1999, their best effort in ODIs overall was 376/2 against New Zealand at Hyderabad in 1999.

India have now become the fourth team to post an ODI total in excess of 400 after South Africa, who have done it twice (438/9 vs Australia at Johannesburg and 418/5 against Zimbabwe at Potchefstroom, both in 2006); Australia (434/4 against South Africa at Johannesburg in 2006); and Sri Lanka, who posted a world record 443/9 against The Netherlands at Amstelveen in 2006.

Where India registered a world record was in the victory margin. Their 257-run win snatched the record away from Australia (301/6), who had beaten Namibia (45) by 256 runs at Potchefstroom in the 2003 world Cup.

India also equalled the ODI record for most sixes in an innings to share honours with South Africa, who slammed 18 sixes against The Netherlands at Basseterre a few days ago in this World Cup.

India also slammed 30 fours during the carnage, to accumulate 228 runs by way of boundaries.

The record in this regard is held by Sri Lanka, who had made Kenya pay to the tune of 43 fours and 14 sixes for a combined total of 256 runs in boundaries in their 1996 World Cup encounter.

This brings us to Virender Sehwag, who reached his century off 81 balls to post the second-fastest century in a World Cup.

Sehwag's effort is next only to Canada batsman John Davison's 67-ball century against West Indies at Centurion in the 2003 World Cup.
