3. 413/5 vs. Bermuda in Port of Spain in March 2007

India then bundled out the Lankans for just 251. Skipper Angelo Mathews and Lahiru Thirimanne offered token resistance with fifties. For India, Dhawal Kulkarni was the star bowler with 4/34 in his 10 overs. Predictably, Rohit Sharma won the Player of the Match award.
5. 401/3 vs. South Africa in Gwalior in February 2010
This match is noteworthy because Sachin Tendulkar recorded the first-ever individual ODI double hundred in this game. He blasted 200 not out off 147 balls with 25 fours and 3 sixes. He was aided by fifties from Dinesh Karthik and MS Dhoni. India thus amassed 401/3.
The Indian bowlers were up to the task as well and bundled out the Proteas for just 248 runs in 42.5 overs. AB de Villiers’s hundred went in vain. For India, pacer S Sreesanth bagged the most wickets (3/49). Not surprisingly, Tendlya was named the Player of the Match.

India then bowled tidily to dismiss the Kiwis for 334 in 45.1 overs. Opener Jesse Ryder’s 105 was thus made in a losing cause. For India, Zaheer Khan, Yuvraj Singh and Harbhajan Singh bagged 2 scalps each. Tendulkar was named the Player of the Match.
