Records shattered as India registered a total of 357 runs against Sri Lanka in their latest World Cup 2023 game on Thursday, November 2. Virat Kohli, Shubman Gill and Shreyas Iyer recorded brilliant fifties to help India score their fourth-highest total in the ODI World Cup history but the biggest impact came from the bowlers in the second innings at Mumbai's Wankhede Stadium.

The premier pacer Jasprit Bumrah gave India a sensational start with a wicket on the first ball of the innings. Bumrah became the first Indian cricketer to claim a wicket on the very first ball of the innings in the World Cup to script history.

Mohammed Siraj then carried the momentum with two more wickets in the second over and then the in-form Mohammed Shami shattered Sri Lanka's middle over. Indian pacers displayed their best-ever performance in ODIs to produce the best figures in the first ten overs of World Cup game ever.

Shami dismissed Charith Asalanka and Dushan Hemantha on back-to-back deliveries in the tenth over to help India bag a huge milestone. Sri Lanka managed to put only 14 runs on the scoreboard in the first ten overs with six wickets down. This was the lowest score by any team in the powerplay overs of ODI innings in World Cup history. 

India became the first team to clinch six wickets in powerplay overs in ODI World Cup history and also registered the best figures to script a major milestone.

  1. 14/6 by India against Sri Lanka in Mumbai in 2023
