India, on Saturday, December 10, registered their fourth-highest team total in ODIs. The Men in Blue racked up 409 for the loss of eight wickets in the third and final game of the three-match series against Bangladesh at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram.

India also notched their second-highest team total overseas, with their highest being 413 for five against Bermuda back in 2007 in the 50-over World Cup match at Port of Spain. It also happened to be the sixth time that India breached the 400-run mark in ODIs.

India’s highest score in ODIs remains to be 418 for five against the West Indies back in December 2011 in Indore. They had the chance of breaking the 11-year-old record, but a flurry of wickets in the

death overs didn’t allow them to create a new record.

On Saturday, Ishan Kishan and Virat Kohli stole the show as they stitched together a 290-run stand for the second wicket after India lost the early wicket of Shikhar Dhawan to off-break bowler Mehidy Hasan Miraz.

Kishan went on to break Universe Boss Chris Gayle’s record of the fastest to an ODI double hundred. Kishan scored 210 runs with the help of 24 fours and 10 sixes before Ishan Kishan accounted for his wicket.

The 34-year-old Kohli also eased his way to his 72nd international century off 85 balls after being a tad circumspect while starting his knock. Kohli is now only behind Sachin Tendulkar in the list of most hundreds in international cricket.
