Australia hit the highest World Cup score in tournament history on Wednesday when they made 417-6 against Afghanistan at the WACA in Perth, led by David Warner's 178-run blitz.
The four-time champions went past the previous best of 413-5 made by India against Bermuda in 2007.
It was the third 400-plus total at this World Cup after South Africa twice went through the barrier -- 408-5 against the West Indies and 411-4 in the game with Ireland.
Here are some viral tweets from the Australia vs Afghanistan match.

You have to admire the ability of TV commentators still to find 'incredible' and 'unbelievable' things that happen all the time. Impressive.— Andy Zaltzman (@ZaltzCricket) March 4, 2015
400 is the new 300 in this cricket World Cup!— Stuart Broad (@StuartBroad8) March 4, 2015

Warner the burner
Watson's failures are remote controlled
The Maxwell reverse sweep has quickly become the second most exciting shot in cricket, just behind the Shane Watson front foot LBW #CWC15— 51allout (@51allout) March 4, 2015
Captain Clarke was also not spared

I thought Michael Clarke was a batsman. Who was fit. And in need of time in the middle. My bad #AUSvAFG— paul suttor (@paulsuttor) March 4, 2015
BREAKING: In support of Shane Watson Michael Clarke drops himself. #AUSvAFG— Former Legend (@Former_legend) March 4, 2015
Is Michael Clarke batting at 9 or 10 so that the commentators can still say Australia bats deep down the order? #CWC15— Joe Pignataro (@JoeyPigz) March 4, 2015
For years I've said Faulkner's game was weak against the Afghan bowling attack and now finally I have been proven correct. #AUSvAFG— Adam Liaw (@adamliaw) March 4, 2015
Hamid Waqars Faulkner. 382-4. Australia collapsing disastrously. Hamid celebrates as if rapidly arranging some papers in a filing cabinet.— Andy Zaltzman (@ZaltzCricket) March 4, 2015
