After electing to bat only for the second time in his leadership tenure, Kohli flayed the Sri Lankan attack and giving him company was Rohit, as the two forged a dominating 219-run stand off only 165 balls. With 96 balls, Kohli scored his runs, and Rohit needed just 88. At one point, it appeared as though both would destroy Lanka with a double century apiece, setting a record for the highest total ever achieved by India. However, Lasith Malinga's 300 wickets caused a mini-collapse in which they lost 4 wickets for 49 runs. Nevertheless, Dhoni and Manish Pandey began their own century partnership in the 39th over due to the rapidity with which Rohit and Kohli made their runs. The match was declared a no-contest as India blasted their way to 375 and Sri Lanka was knocked out for 207, behind by 168 runs.
