India vs West Indies - Highlights & Stats

West Indies tour of India 2018

Rohit recorded his 20th century in ODIs as together with captain Virat Kohli (140), he steered India's chase of 323 as the hosts won with 47 deliveries to spare and take a 1-0 lead in the five-match ODI series. Virat and Rohit stitched together a 246-run partnership which was enough to break the West Indian hopes.

While reaching the Windies target, Rohit also played a shot which even amazed his partner Virat Kohli. Whenever he gets there, Kohli will be the fastest to do so and again beat Tendulkar to the record.

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.

He received the ODI cap from MS Dhoni but could not get an opportunity to bat and was rather sloppy in the field, which is quite understandable considering he is a wicket-keeper.

Shimron Hetmyer (L) of West Indies celebrates with teammate Jason Holder after scoring his third ODI hundred. "And life isn't hard when Rohit is at the other end", Kohli said at the presentation. They played according to the situation.

"No.4 was something we were looking for for a long time and with Rayudu coming in and playing well in the Asia Cup, [by] giving him enough game-time between now and the World Cup, I think that particular slot will be sorted".

The ton was his 14th as India's ODI captain, edging him closer to Ricky Ponting's record 22 as Australian skipper. This allowed Windies to keep going for their strokes which kept pushing the score.

Along the way, he added 74 for the fifth wicket with Rovman Powell (22) before posting another 60 runs for the sixth wicket with Holder who was good for five fours in a 42-ball knock. "Obviously on a track like this that's skidding on when the lights take effect, it becomes a little more hard", Holder explained. Kohli was dismissed on 140 runs and Rohit stayed unbeaten on 152 runs to take India over the finishing line easily and take a 1-0 lead in the five-match series. They can play shots to every part of the ground.
