Chandrapaul Hemraj Marlon Samuels were the only disappointments for West Indies as all other batters contributed and helped their team to get past the 300 run mark in their allotted 50 overs.
Virat Kohli-led Indian cricket team will look to get more answers for their unresolved middle-order when Men-in-Blue will take on the West Indies in the five-match One Day International (ODI) series ahead of the 2019 World Cup.
Kohli scored 140 off 107 balls while Sharma was unbeaten on 152 from 117 balls as India chased the 323-run target easily. Courtesy of Kohli and Rohit's centuries, India clinched a comfortable eight-wicket win over the Windies in the opening ODI.
While Sharma remained unbeaten on 152 at the end, the facts surrounding Kohli's 140 are astounding. Kohli looked in red-hot form right from the time he came to bat and had a ideal second-fiddle in the form of Rohit Sharma.
The two marauding batsmen started to toy with the opposition bowlers before Devendra Bishoo got Kohli stumped against the run of play. The visitors put in a much-improved performance with the bat and on the back of a blazing century by Shimron Hetmyer posted 322.
He shared fifty-plus stands with Rovman Powell and Jason Holder to steady the ship.
"Among the top three, I mostly take the anchor role because both Rohit and Shikhar [Dhawan] are good stroke-makers".
Kohli made 140 off 107 balls with the help of 21 fours and two sixes.
"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".
