Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma bat like they are playing PS4: Yuzvendra Chahal

Despite chasing a huge 323, skipper Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma made the first ODI a lop-sided contest.

"It's good to see we batted all the overs".

Bedi described the result in Guwahati a "total massacre of mediocrity" questioning the logic behind playing a home series against such a weak West Indies side before Australian tour.

"The way they bat, definitely, we don't want to bowl to them", Chahal said with a wry smile in the post-match interview with Sanjay Manjrekar.

Disagreement over Northern Ireland could prolong Brexit, angering many in UK
Mr Barnier said that a Brexit accord was "possible but difficult", adding he was still not certain if a deal could be reached. But for now the absence of a breakthrough will be less important to the prime minister than the absence of a breakdown.

"Looking back in hindsight, we needed one or two more partnership breakers, and you never know, we could have been back in the game". And life isn't hard when Rohit is at the other end.

The centurion for West Indies, Shimron Hetmeyer, thought his team had a defendable score after getting to 322 in their allotted fifty overs.

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.

Kohli then took charge with Sharma, who was happy playing second fiddle to his in-form captain, as the duo put on India's biggest-ever ODI stand against West Indies for any wicket. He scored the century in 74 balls with the help of six boundaries and six sixes.

The two marauding batsmen started to toy with the opposition bowlers before Devendra Bishoo got Kohli stumped against the run of play.

During his knock of 152 runs off 117 balls, Rohit overhauled Indian batting legend Sachin and beleaguered Aussie cricketer David Warner to score most 150-plus scores in ODIs. It was one of those days where I felt good and I told Rohit I will continue to bat this way positively and maybe you can play the anchor role. Among the top three, I mostly take the anchor role because both Rohit and Shikhar are good stroke-makers.

Jadeja and Yuzvendra Chahal (3-41) stemmed the run rate with the latter accounting for Holder and Ashley Nurse (2), only for Bishoo and Roach to frustrate India, who beat Windies 2-0 in the preceding Test series following thumping wins in Rajkot and Hyderabad.
