India beat West Indies by 8 wickets in 1st ODI

The hosts didn't get off to the best start when debutant pacer Oshane Thomas (1-83) bowled Shikhar Dhawan (4) early.

Rohit and Kohli were involved in a 246-run stand which is the highest for any wicket for India against West Indies.

Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma hit their respective 36th and 20th ODI hundreds to help India thrashed the West Indies by eight wickets with 47 runs to spare in the first of five matches at Guwahati on Sunday.

While Kohli and Rohit plundered boundaries to entertain the packed stadium, it painted a sorry picture of the West Indies attack, which once was intimidating for any batting line up in the world.

The effort from Kohli and Sharma easily overshadowed a dominant 106 by West Indies batsman Shermon Hetmyer in his team's 322-8 after being put into bat first. After Kohli was stumped off leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo, India's vice captain took the side home in company of Ambati Rayudu (22).

The 21-year-old Pant, who cracked a ton at the Oval in his debut series against England, continued his rich form with consecutive scores of 92 against the West Indies in the two-match Test series.

Hetmyer punished the Indian bowlers with six fours and as many sixes in his entertaining 78-ball knock.

While Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja offer India with three spin-bowling options, Khaleel Ahmed, Mohammed Shami and Umesh Yadav offer pace-bowling options to Kohli.

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.

Holder also played sensibly before getting out and towards the end, Bishoo and Roach forged a 44-run partnership for the ninth wicket to guide the West Indies to a challenging total.
