Highlights of Virat Kohli Century (133 off 83 Balls) and Interview v Srilanka

Sri Lanka (320/4) has posted their highest total against India in Australia, eclipsing the 289 for six at Brisbane on February 21, 2012.

 Sri Lanka's above total is their second highest in Australia, next only to the 343 for five against Australia at Sydney on January 9, 2003.

 Sri Lanka's 320 for four is their highest total in the Commonwealth Bank Series 2011-12, eclipsing the 289 for six against India at Gabba on February 21, 2012.

 Virat Kohli's magnificent unbeaten 133 is his career-best, eclipsing the 118 against Australia at Visakhapatnam on October 20, 2010.

 Kohli (133 not out off 86 balls) has posted his first century in Australia. His ninth hundred in ODIs is his second against Sri Lanka. India has won eight games when Kohli has posted a hundred.

 The 76-ball hundred is Kohli's quickest in ODIs.

 Kohli has averaged 60.86 in Indian wins, aggregating 2252 runs in 48 matches.

 Kohli's aforesaid knock is the third highest by an Indian player in Australia in ODIs - the top two being 141 by Sourav Ganguly against Pakistan at Adelaide on January 25, 2000 and 139 by Yuvraj Singh against Australia at SCG on January 22, 2004.

 Virat Kohli's aggregate of 373 at an average of 53.28 in eight matches, including a hundred and two half-centuries, is the highest by an Indian in the CB Series 2011-12.

 The 115-run partnership between Gautam Gambhir and Virat Kohli is an Indian record against Sri Lanka for the third wicket in Australia.

 Suresh Raina and Kohli put on 120 (unbroken) for the fourth wicket - India's highest against Sri Lanka in Australia. The stand is India's highest so far in Australia in Tests/ODIs/T20Is during the 2011-12 season. India has posted two stands of 100-plus in the same innings.

 The India-Sri Lanka ODI has witnessed the 20th occasion when three centuries have been recorded in an ODI. Four hundreds have been registered in an ODI just once - two each by Australia and Pakistan at Lahore on November 10, 1998.

 Virender Sehwag (30) has posted his highest innings in the CB Series 2011-12, eclipsing the 20 against Australia at Adelaide on February 12, 2012.

 India (321/3) has recorded their highest successful chase in Australia, outstripping the 270 for six against Australia at Adelaide on February 12, 2012.

 India's aforesaid score is their highest successful chase against Sri Lanka, bettering the 317 for three at Eden Gardens, Kolkata on December 24, 2009.

 India's brilliant successful chase is their joint third highest - the two highest being 326 for eight against England at Lord's on July 13, 2002 and 325 for five against the West Indies at Ahmedabad on November 15, 2002. (India had successfully chased 321 for five against New Zealand at Bangalore on December 7, 2010.)

 India in all have successfully chased 300 or more twelve times in ODIs - four times against Sri Lanka, three times against England, twice against Pakistan and once each against New Zealand, West Indies and South Africa.

 India's match-winning total is the second highest at Bellerive Oval, next only to Australia's 344 for seven against Zimbabwe on January 16, 2004.

 India became the second team to successfully chase 300 in less than 40 overs - Sri Lanka (324/2) was the first team to accomplish the feat against England (321/7 at Leeds on July 1, 2006).

 Kumar Sangakkara (105 off 87 balls) has posted his fourth century against India - his 13th in ODIs.

 Sangakkara, as wicketkeeper, has posted eleven hundreds in ODIs - the second highest tally as wicketkeeper, next only to Adam Gilchrist's 16.

 Tillakaratne Dilshan (160 not out off 165 balls) has recorded his 11th century in ODIs - his fourth against India.

 Dilshan has emulated his highest score in ODIs. In the Rajkot ODI against India on December 15, 2009, he had made 160 off 124 balls. He is the only batsman to post two innings of 150 or more in a losing cause.

 Dilshan's above innings is the highest by a Sri Lankan in Australia, eclipsing the 128 by Kumar Sangakkara against India at Adelaide on February 19, 2008. Dilshan's innings is the second highest at Bellerive Oval, next only to the 172 by Adam Gilchrist for Australia against Zimbabwe on January 16, 2004.

 The 200-runs stand between Dilshan and Sangakkara for the second wicket is the highest ever for any wicket at Bellerive Oval.

 Sri Lanka has set a second wicket partnership record in ODIs, eclipsing the 170 between Roy Dias and Sidath Wettimuny against India at Delhi on September 15, 1982. Sanath Jayasuriya and Hashan Tillakaratne were also associated in a 170-run second-wicket
partnership against New Zealand at Bloemfontein on February 10, 2003.

 Zaheer Khan is the leading wicket-taker for India against Sri Lanka in ODIs, claiming 62 at 30.56 runs apiece in 43 matches, bettering the 61 (ave.26.95) in 47 matches by Harbhajan Singh.

 Two hundreds have been posted for Sri Lanka against India for the second time in ODIs - the first occasion being at Sharjah on October 27, 2000 when Marvan Atapattu (102 not out) and Mahela Jayawardena (128) slammed centuries.

 Sri Lanka have accomplished the feat of registering two centuries in an innings eleven times - two times each against India, England and Bangladesh and once each against New Zealand, Australia, Netherlands, Pakistan and Zimbabwe.
