The fourth ODI between India and Windies was a historic occasion for the Brabourne Stadium, as a men's ODI was being hosted at the venue after a hiatus of 12 years. The last game played at the ground was the final of the ICC Champions Trophy 2006 between Australia and West Indies.

Out of the eight games played at the venue prior to this fixture, no player had been able to breach the 100-run mark. It was local boy Hitman who did the unprecedented as he flinged Jason Holder over the fine leg for a boundary, becoming the first ODI centurion on the ground.

Rohit Sharma re-established his credentials on this record, which was claimed by skipper Virat Kohli in the second ODI at Visakhapatnam. Rohit's blistering 162 is second only to that of the electrifying 219 of Virender Sehwag, which he scored in 2011.

Virat's knock of 157* which came earlier in the series slips to the third place, while Rohit Sharma features again in the top five with an unbeaten 152 which came in the first game of the bilateral series. Sachin Tendulkar features in the list as well, with his knock of 140 against the Caribbeans at Kuala Lumpur in 2006 taking the fifth place.
