When Australia set India a target of over 350 runs in one-day cricket for the first time, in the 2003 World Cup final in Johannesburg, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan were all in school.

Like most cricket-crazy boys of that age, they must have prayed before their television screens for India and Sachin Tendulkar to pull off a miracle by chasing down the score of 359/2. Tendulkar got out for 4 and India lost by 125 runs.

At the Sawai Man Singh Stadium Wednesday, Sharma, Kohli and Dhawan helped India record the second highest chase in the history of one-day cricket after South Africa's penultimate ball win chasing 435 seven years ago.

But unlike South Africa's win, India's top three ensured they did it without jitters. And in style — with 39 balls and nine wickets to spare.
