India rode on centuries from Shreyas Iyer and KL Rahul to post a mammoth 410/4 and would bowl the Dutchmen out for 250 in response to collect their ninth victory in a row and remain the only remaining team in the tournament to not lose a single match so far.

Among the Indian wicket-takers during Sunday’s contest at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium was boy Virat Kohli, who missed out on the opportunity to bring up a record 50th ODI ton at his adopted home ground but made the day a memorable one by achieving the rare feat of getting a wicket off his bowling.

Later, the winning wicket would go to skipper Rohit Sharma, who dismissed Teja Nidamanuru to seal India’s triumph.
