After registering a thumping eight-wicket victory over a young West Indies team in the opening One Day worldwide match of the five-match series, Virat Kohli-led India will aim to increase the lead when the two teams face each other for the second ODI today.
Earlier in the day, India captain Virat Kohli won the toss and chose to bat in the second One-Day International (ODI) against the Windies.
However, captain Virat Kohli and vice-captain Rohit Sharma both hit hundreds to get India a big 8-wicket victory in their chase of 323 runs with 47 balls to spare. If he scores the required runs in this game then he will not only become the 13th player to enter the exclusive club but will also become the fastest to achieve the feat in the history of 50-overs cricket. The record is now held by Kohli, who took just 114 innings to get there. David Gower had competed 1000 ODI runs in 1983 while Shane Watson, Kumar Sangakkara and Ab de Villiers also took the same number of matches in 2011, 2013 and 2015, respectively.
Kohli, during the course of the innings, also become India's highest run getter in ODIs against the Windies, again going past Tendulkar.
West Indies, on the other hand, would be quite relieved with the way their batsmen, especially Shimron Hetmyer, played in the first match.
The West Indies lost the preceding two-Test series with India 2-0.
