Jaipur: Overhauling Australia's mammoth score of 359 for five in 43.3 overs, India comfortably beat Australia by nine wickets in their second ODI at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium here Wednesday.

Stellar performances by Rohit Sharma (141 not out), Virat Kohli (100 not out) and Shikhar Dhawan (95) helped India score 362 for one to record the second highest ODI chase so far.

And Kohli's 100 off 52 balls became the fastest century by an Indian and the seventh fastest ODI hundred. And delighted fans were quick to acknowledge his feat on twitter:

Finally the 359 was the same score India had to chase against the Aussies at the 2003 WC final.

Sportsmedia ‏@SportsmediaUK

S Rajesh ‏@rajeshstats 
First time 300+ has been scored in a chase in an ODI for the loss of less than 2 wickets 

The Cricket Geek ‏@TheCricketGeek 
Virat Kohli has 4 more ODI hundreds at the age of 24 than any Englishman achieved in their career. Says a lot about England and ODIs

Ozilin Mesutukut ‏@sidin 
Devious class topper RT @ESPNcricinfo: Virat Kohli: "I kept telling Rohit that it was his day today, but i kept hitting the ball very well."

Aakash Chopra ‏@cricketaakash 
“@YCCCDizzy: @cricketaakash hey mate, Kohli is one of the best players I have ever seen.” Coming from one of best in the world. Brilliant 

Harsha Bhogle ‏@bhogleharsha

Rohit Sharma ton! My old man who was among the first to spot his talent would be smiling from heaven!

Harsha Bhogle ‏@bhogleharsha 
this century will change the way rohit sharma looks at himself and the way we look at him.

Harsha Bhogle ‏@bhogleharsha 
rohit sharma will be aware that two centuries in 103 games was unbecoming of his ability. now he must move to change that record.

sangeeth sivan ‏@sangeethsivan 
This is indeed something special from india .. go blue go #IndvsAus

Tunku Varadarajan ‏@tunkuv 
Indian cricket is like India: there is no efficiency/planning/civic sense (like our bowling), but we get things done by 'jugaad' (batting).

kunal kohli ‏@kunalkohli 
always been proud to be a #kohli but @imVkohli makes not just Kohli's but all Indian's proud.

Tunku Varadarajan ‏@tunkuv 
Mitchell Johnson, from unplayable to unspeakable in the space of a game. ‏@awaIs_dotcom 
Aus to be at the receiving end of two of the highest ODI successful run chases. Takes some doing. #IndvsAus

Mohandas Menon ‏@mohanstatsman 
Rohit Sharma 3rd ODI 100. Last 100 in May 2010. Since then no 100s in 59 matches & 59 inngs until now 

Rajaneesh ‏@vilakudy 
Hmmm. RT @SpiceBoxofEarth: Not yet 25, and he's already India's second greatest ODI bat. Scary how good he is. #Kohli
