Rohit Sharma (61), Shubman Gill (51), Virat Kohli (51), Shreyas Iyer and KL Rahul notched half centuries which helped India break the record.

Australia, in 1975, had four of its batters - Rick McCosker, Greg Chappel, Alan Turner and Doug Walters - hit fifty runs or more against Sri Lanka at the Oval.

India’s previous best was also four half centuries, during the 1987 World Cup, where Sunil Gavaskar, Mohammad Azharuddin, Navjot Sindhu and Dilip Vengsarkar crossed 50 runs.

India also became the third team to the feat. Pakistan had managed it against Zimbabwe in 2008, while Australia recorded it twice against India - in 2013 and 2020.
