Virat Kohli once again missed out on a record equalling 49th ODI hundred but Indian batters made merry on a flat pitch to score a mammoth 357 for 8 against Sri Lanka in a World Cup match in Mumbai on Thursday.

Kohli (88 off 94 balls), who previously missed out on equalling Sachin Tendulkar's 49th ODI ton, against New Zealand in Dharamsala, enjoyed a 189-run second wicket stand with his heir apparent Shubman Gill, who looked a million dollars during his run-a-ball 92.
