Virat Kohli reacts animatedly to Rohit Sharma’s delicate flick

Rishabh Pant Set To Make Debut As India Announce Team For 1st ODI vs Windies

Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma put together yet another 200-run partnership in ODIs - their fifth - to help India record a comfortable win in the first ODI of the five-match series.

India skipper Virat Kohli and deputy Rohit Sharma sent the West Indies bowlers on a leather hunt in Guwahati on Sunday.

On the other hand, Virender Sehwag also congratulated Rohit Sharma to become the first batsman to score more 150 runs on six occasions. "We don't need to ponder much", said Kohli.

"But we knew it's all about one partnership".

"Among the top three, I mostly take the anchor role because both Rohit and Shikhar are good stroke-makers". West Indies' pacer Oshane Thomas dismissed India opener Shikhar Dhawan in his debut match during the first One-Day Internationa (ODI) at the Barsapara Cricket Ground in Guwahati on Sunday for his first global wicket. "They're two quality players, world-class players".

"Happens very rarely when Rohit plays second fiddle", said Kohli of his partner.

Hetmyer, who registered his third ODI century in just his 13th game, built crucial partnerships including a 60-run sixth wicket stand with skipper Jason Holder, who made 38. Up front we went to get wickets as that was the only way to put them under pressure. So it was good to see him get a score on the board. But, while Kohli has 14 centuries in 50 innings, Ponting took 220 innings to compile 22 centuries.

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

Powell bossed a second-wicket stand of 56 with Shai Hope (32) after the exit of Chandrapaul Hemraj (9), but Windies slipped to 114-4 once they were removed, with their dismissals sandwiching Marlon Samuels' duck.
