JAIPUR: India provided ample proof of their formidable strength at home on October 16, 2013 as they pulled off their highest ever ODI chase to restore parity in the seven-match series against Australia.
The match also saw a plethora of other records being set.
Here's a statistical overview of the second ODI.
- The successful chase of 360 is the second-highest ever in ODIs. It only trails South Africa's successful pursuit of 435 against Australia at Johannesburg on March 12, 2006.
- The successful chase of 360 is India's highest ever in ODIs. The previous highest was 330 for 4 against Pakistan in 2012.
- Virat Kohli's 100 off 52 balls is the fastest century by an Indian and the seventh fastest ODI hundred. Kohli eclipsed Virender Sehwag's 60-ball century against New Zealand at Hamilton on March 11, 2009.
- This is the first time that India successfully chased a total in excess of 300 against Australia.
- For the first time ever, the top five batsmen in an ODI innings scored half-centuries as Australia posted a massive 359/5. Aaron Finch (50) and Phil Hughes (83) provided the foundation, Shane Watson (56) tended to the middle, and skipper Bailey (92*, 50b) and Glenn Maxwell (53, 32b) looted 96 in just 51 deliveries to cap off a wonderful outing.
- All top four successful run chases in ODI history have come against Australia - 438 for 9 (South Africa in 2006); 362 for 1 (India in 2013); 350 for 9 (New Zealand in 2007); 340 for 5 (New Zealand in 2007).
- The match aggregate of 721 for 6 is the fourth-highest in ODIs.
- Rohit Sharma's 123-ball 141*, is so far, the highest by an Indian batsman in ODIs in 2013.
