Team India's 3rd biggest win came against the African Nation of Namibia at the 2003 World Cup. While India were heads on favourite for this encounter, that doesn't take away the fact that they registered such a gigantic win at the grandest stage.

India batting first scored 311/2 in their 50 overs as the Indian maestros - Sachin Tendulkar and Sourav Ganguly scored impressive centuries to help their side breach the 300-run mark.

The Namibian batting unit crumbled against a dominant Indian bowling attack as they were wrapped up at the score of 130. Yuvraj Singh enjoyed a great spell with the ball as he took 4 wickets. He was appreciated for making good use of the pitch conditions.

India's win over Namibia is often remembered for the monumental partnership between Sourav Ganguly and Sachin Tendulkar as the two built a 244-run stand in the middle.
