In the Nagpur One-day International (ODI) against Australia four centuries were scored. Shane Watson (102), George Bailey (156), Shikhar Dhawan (100) and Virat Kohli (115 not out) were the centurions in the game. India beat Australia by six wickets with three balls to spare.

This is only the second occasion when four centurions — two from each teams have scored this feat. In the 1998 game between Pakistan and Australia at Lahore:  Ijaz Ahmed (111), Yousuf Youhana (100), Adam Gilchrist (103) and Ricky Ponting (124 not out) were the centurions.

India have levelled the series and the final ODI match at Bangalore is decisive now.
