PERFORMANCE OF THE DAY

SAURAV GANGULY

India's left-handed batsman hit 183 against Sri Lanka yesterday, the second highest individual innings in World Cup history, as his side racked up 373 for 6 in their 50 overs. Alongside Rahul Dravid, who made a second consecutive World Cup century by scoring 145, Ganguly played the leading role in setting a record partnership of 318. They beat the previous best for any wicket in any one-day international - 275 by India's Mohammad Azharuddin and Ajay Jadeja against Zimbabwe in 1997-98.
