India make the highest ever World Cup Total against Bermuda

India made 413/5 in their second match of the World Cup. The hapless Bermudians were belted black and blue by Sehwag (who appears to have regained his form), Ganguly, Yuvraj and later on by Tendulkar. Sehwag made his long-awaited century. He was out on 114 after facing 87 balls. Ganguly played a sedate knock of 89 off 114 balls before being stumped by the wicket-keeper Minors. Yuvraj was particularly severe hitting 7 sixes for his blistering 83 off just 46 balls. Tendulkar's cameo 57 off just 29 balls including 4 sixes and 2 fours ensured that India crossed 400 mark. The last ball of the Indian innings was despatched for a towering six by Rahul Dravid.
The Bermudians were bundled out for a paltry 156 off 43.1 overs. Hemp was the highest scorer, making a sedate 76 off 105 balls. Only two other players crossed into double figures - Borden (13) and Minors (21). There were 5 duck-outs in the Bermudian innings.
So it was a comprehensive victory by 256 runs for India. It remains to be seen how they fare against the Sri Lankans.
