Rohit also went past 500 World Cup runs for India (509).
Dhawan, Team India notch records at The Oval
Dhawan is now the fifth highest run-scorer at The Oval (443). He has three centuries here and that has made him the joint-highest centurion at The Oval alongside former England batsman Marcus Trescothick. India scripted their highest total at this venue. This was also the fourth highest total by a team here. Their previous best score here was 321/6 against Sri Lanka in 2017.
Dhawan and Rohit's tryst with records continues
