Both hit centuries during their 37-over second wicket stand of 205 runs eclipsing the previous record of 198, set by Virender Sehwag and Suraish Raina, also from India, against Pakistan at Karachi in 2008.
Gambhir made 100 from 118 balls while Kohli hit 108 off 120 balls. Both struck seven fours each.
