Earlier, Shreyas Iyer and KL Rahul hit attacking centuries to power India to a mammoth 410-4 against the Netherlands as the hosts look to stay undefeated in the final league match of the World Cup.

India, who are aiming for a 9-0 league finish, elected to bat first in Bengaluru with their minds already on a semi-final against New Zealand on Wednesday. Iyer smashed an unbeaten 128 off 94 balls for his first World Cup ton in a match where all the top-five Indian batsmen went past the fifty mark on a batting-friendly pitch.

He raised his hundred — his fourth in ODI cricket — off 84 balls and put on 208 runs with Rahul, who hit 102. Bengaluru-born Rahul reached his ton with two sixes for the fastest Indian hundred in World Cups in 62 balls. He departed four balls later as India fell short of their highest ever World Cup total of 413-5 v Bermuda in 2007.

Virat Kohli reached his half century but fell for 51, silencing the crowd who had been anticipating the star batsman`s 50th ODI ton after he equalled Sachin Tendulkar`s record of 49 in the team`s previous win over South Africa.

Skipper Rohit Sharma, who hit 61, and Shubman Gill laid the foundations for the total in an opening stand of 100 with the pair hitting regular boundaries. Gill fell for 51 off Paul van Meekeren and fellow quick Bas de Leede dismissed Rohit after the captain reached his fourth 50-plus score including a ton in the tournament.
