<p>3 records were shattered during Australia&#39;s emphatic win over Sri Lanka</p>

Sri Lanka put up a fight against Australia on Sunday, but the home team simply had too much firepower for the Sri Lankans to handle and it resulted in an emphatic nine-wicket win after opting to bowl first at the SCG.

1) Kane Richardson broke Aravinda de Silva's record of 4 wickets in an innings in ODIs On Wednesday (January 11), Australian pacer Kane Richardson broke Sri Lankan cricketer Aravinda de Silva's record of 4 wickets in an innings. He recorded his best bowling performance in ODIs when he dismissed 2 batsmen off consecutive deliveries in the 14th over. This was something that only two other bowlers had achieved previously, Lasith Malinga and Mitchell Starc. Rohit Sharma became India's highest run-scorer in T20Is: Rohit Sharma, who is known for his consistency across formats, has been on a roll since last year. His exploits with the bat have seen him break several records in all three formats - Tests, ODIs, and T20s. The latest one came in India's match against South Africa at Centurion as he surpassed Suresh Raina as India's highest run-getter in T20 Internationals. Virat Kohli set another milestone by becoming the first batsman to score 1000 runs at Eden Gardens: The Eden Garden is considered one of cricket’s most iconic venues and Virat Kohli continued his rich vein of form here as well by scoring yet another century against Bangladesh. 2) Mitchell Starc broke Chaminda Vaas' record for the most number of sixes in an ODI Bowling at 148km/h, Mitchell Starc broke Chaminda Vaas' record for the most number of sixes in an ODI inning. The Australian fast bowler hit 11 sixes as he smashed 160 runs off 111 balls. Vaas had previously held that record when he hit 10 sixes against England in 2002. Smith breaks Tendulkar’s World Cup run-scoring record: Steve Smith became only the second batsman after Sachin Tendulkar to score two centuries in a single World Cup tournament. In his side’s match against Afghanistan on Saturday (March 17), Smith scored 119 runs from 122 deliveries before being dismissed by Rashid Khan. He joins Tendulkar as one of only two players to have achieved such a feat in one edition. With 623 runs under his belt, Smith has surpassed Ricky Ponting’s total of 619 runs and is now placed third on the list behind Tendulkar and Ponting. 3) D'Arcy Short became the first batsman to score his maiden ODI hundred within 36 balls Short’s innings of 123 from 36 balls eclipsed Sanath Jayasuriya’s record for the fastest ODI century, which had stood since 1996. The 37-year-old was coming off a hat-trick of half-centuries against New Zealand in his last three games. It took him only 19 balls to reach his fifth 50, and he raced away with a six off Isuru Udana for his hundred. He finished on 123 from just 36 deliveries. He also became just the fourth player in ODIs to score a century before lunch on debut, after Vivian Richards (West Indies), Hashim Amla (South Africa), and David Warner (Australia). The previous highest team total in a World Cup knockout game was 366 by West Indies against England at Edgbaston in 1999: Australia set an all-time World Cup record when they scored 370/5 against Sri Lanka at Trent Bridge. They surpassed West Indies' previous high of 366 for 5, set back in 1999 when they beat England by one wicket at Edgbaston. This is also their highest total ever against Sri Lanka; their previous best was 359 for 7 at Sydney during the 2015 World Cup.
