India vs West Indies - Highlights & Stats

India skipper Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma hit attacking hundreds as India beat West Indies by eight wickets to take a 1-0 lead in the five-match ODI series.

The century helped Kohli become the fastest batsman to 60 global tons and took him within touching distance of the 10000-run mark in ODIs as well.

Rohit Sharma was next to complete his fifty off 51 deliveries. "And life isn't hard when Rohit is at the other end", Kohli said at the presentation. But there was an opportunity to go after the debutant fast bowler, Oshane Thomas, whom West Indies were keen on using as a surprise element in their plan to prioritise wickets.

"Among the top three, I mostly take the anchor role because both Rohit and Shikhar are good stroke-makers". In the age of slam-bang cricket, he is one of the few who relies on the "touch" and "placement" as against the brute force employed by other players.

The Lakers, with James on the sideline due to three fouls, battled back to tie the game at 61-61 late in the second quarter. They were also cold from the perimeter, going 7-of-30 from 3-point range. "I was there for the tough times".

"Got to get them out, that's the only way to stem the flow of runs", West Indies captain Jason Holder said after the match. After a shoddy performance in the Test series, the batsmen got their acts together and on the back of a stroke-filled century by Shimron Hetmyer, they posted 322 runs. So it was good to see him get a score on the board. The century was Kohli's 14th as captain in ODIs and he's just behind Austalian great Ricky Ponting (22) now.
