Virat Kohli reacts animatedly to Rohit Sharma’s delicate flick

  • Virat Kohli | There is no stopping Indian captain Virat Kohli at the moment. His captaincy aside the player has been in imperious form with the willow. Kohli is just 221 runs short of that magical figure of 10,000 ODI runs. His scores in 2018 rea

Guwahati witnessed an enthralling one-day global (ODI) match on Sunday between India and West Indies in which India won by eight 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. The Mumbai batsman is the only cricketer in the history of cricket to smash three double hundreds in ODIs. 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.

At the halfway stage of the first ODI, there was a sense of belief in the West Indies camp.

West Indies struck early when the pacy Thomas hurried Dhawan into false stroke but that proved their last glimpse of victory as Rohit and Kohli ruthlessly annihilated an impotent attack. In other words, with this convincing win, whether the problems of the past have simply disappeared or whether this win, brought about by the individual brilliance of a couple of players, has masked the inherent weaknesses of this Indian team. Up front we were obviously looking for wickets because we felt that that was the only way to win the game.

"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. Hetmyer took just 74 balls to reach the three figures mark with the help of six boundaries and six sixes.

The ton was his 14th as India's ODI captain, edging him closer to Ricky Ponting's record 22 as Australian skipper. There was one six in particular that stood out when Kohli clipped Roach over wide long-on with the minimum of nonchalance.

DeMarcus Cousins laughs off furious Cavs fan claiming he 'ruined' National Basketball Association
Buddy, he's not even playing yet, and he might not be back on the floor until the calendar flips to 2019. As Nancy Carlson once wrote , there's a big, handsome world out there!

"Our spinners weren't as effective as you would've liked them to be, so it's just a matter of us going back and just reassess our plans and try to limit some of their scoring".

These are prolific numbers, and they are pretty runs.

Meanwhile, Kohli was out for a stupendous 140, whereas Rohit Sharma remained unbeaten on 152 along with Ambati Rayudu to see Inda home with 47 balls to spare.

On a flat pitch and against a rather mediocre attack, Shikhar Dhawan was dismissed in the second over. You're playing for India, not everyone gets to do that, so that needs to be respected.

# The batting form of the top order has been a big positive for Team India in this match. Barring a dramatic improvement from West Indies' bowling, that fail-test might be a while coming. He plays down the ground mostly, doesn't play much lofted shots.
