Australia leak runs, and Rohit-Dhawan topple Greenidge-Haynes

2 - Instances of Australia conceding more than 300 in a World Cup. India's 352 at The Oval is easily the most they have ever conceded; the only other instance, though, was in a chase when Sri Lanka managed 312 chasing 376 in 2015. For India, this is their fourth-highest World Cup total.

110.75 - Shikhar Dhawan's ODI average at The Oval. In five innings, his scores read: 102*, 125, 78, 21, 117.

2 - Hundreds by India's openers in this World Cup so far. All the other openers put together have managed only one so far - by Jason Roy against Bangladesh.

1273 - Partnership runs for Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan in ODIs against Australia. No pair has scored more: Rohit and Dhawan went past the West Indian pair of Gordon Greenidge and Desmond Haynes, who had 1152 runs from 29 innings. Rohit and Dhawan have scored 1273 in only 22 innings together. Their six century stands against Australia is also the best among all pairs.

3 - Century stands for the first wicket against Australia in 89 World Cup matches. The other two pairs to achieve this are Graham Gooch-Ian Botham (1992) and AB de Villiers-Graeme Smith (2007).

16 - Century stands between Dhawan and Rohit in ODIs. Among opening pairs, only Tendulkar-Sourav Ganguly have more (21) while Matthew Hayden-Adam Gilchrist also have 16. Among all pairs, they are joint third, next only to Ganguly-Tendulkar (26) and Tillakaratne Dilshan-Kumar Sangakkara (20). India have lost only two games when Dhawan and Rohit have gone past 100, but one of them was at The Oval, against Sri Lanka in the 2017 Champions Trophy.

37 - Innings for Rohit to reach 2000 runs against Australia. No batsman has reached 2000 against an opposition in fewer innings: Tendulkar needed 40 innings to get there against Australia, and Kohli took 44 to reach that landmark against Sri Lanka.

4 - Batsmen who have scored 2000-plus ODI runs against Australia - Tendulkar, Haynes and Richards are the others. Rohit's average of 61.72 against Australia is the best among these four.
