Adjust Comment Print

India captain Virat Kohli won the toss and elected to bowl against West Indies in the first of the five one-day internationals in Guwahati on Sunday.

However, making mockery of what looked like a stiff 323-run target, the India cantered to the win with 7.5 overs to spare, taking a 1-0 lead in the five-match series.

The assault came in the form of a magnificent record 246-run second wicket stand between Rohit and Kohli, which pulled the innings around after debutant fast bowler Oshane Thomas forced Shikhar Dhawan to play on in the second over for four with the score on 10. "That's my basic thinking, because you are playing for India and not everyone gets to do that", Kohli said. "They are two legends and when they are playing like this, it sometimes feels like they are playing PS4", said the leg-spinner.

"Looking back in hindsight, we needed one or two more partnership breakers, and you never know, we could have been back in the game". "It's our fifth or sixth double-century partnership, it's a pleasure to bat with him". He scored the century in 74 balls with the help of six boundaries and six sixes.

Hetmyer took charge of the innings, however, blasting six fours and six sixes in a scintillating knock, which required only 78 deliveries.

Shai Hope chipped in with 32 at number three, while tail-ender Kemar Roach frustrated India with an unbeaten 26 at the death. "(Yuzvendra) Chahal, the wrist spinner and (Ravindra) Jadeja to give us balance".
