Kohli scored 140 off 107 balls while Sharma was unbeaten on 152 from 117 balls as India chased the 323-run target easily. Former captain and India wicketkeeper-batsman MS Dhoni handed over the 224 ODI cap to Rishabh Pant at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium before the match.

"Feels pretty good. A convincing win".

Bedi described the result in Guwahati a "total massacre of mediocrity" questioning the logic behind playing a home series against such a weak West Indies side before Australian tour. "Hopefully, in the next game, we can take early wickets and get into the middle-order quicker", Holder said.

"But we knew it's all about one partnership. It's never too hard when you have Rohit at the other end", Kohli said.

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

Opener Shikhar Dhawan (4) was castled by debutant Oshane Thomas in his very first over.

But the data reported Tuesday represents "a substantially larger number than in previous months this year", Messonnier said. Tara Narula told " CBS This Morning ". "As a parent myself, I understand what it is like to be scared for your child".

Kohli's men made a winning start to the ODI series, too, with Kohli striking 21 fours and two sixes and Rohit nailing eight sixes and 15 fours - Rohit's final maximum, off Hemraj, cementing a crushing victory and taking him to his sixth score of 150 or better in ODIs. He scored the century in 74 balls with the help of six boundaries and six sixes. "They're two quality players, world-class players".

Hetmyer took charge of the innings, however, blasting six fours and six sixes in a scintillating knock, which required only 78 deliveries.

Rohit Sharma made a superb 152 off 117 balls and remained not out. The second one-dayer will be played in Visakhapatnam on the 24th of this month.

"Among the top three, I've preferred the anchor role, but today I felt good and I communicated with Rohit that he should play the anchor role".

"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. But Powell and Shai Hope (32) together forged a 65-run partnership for the second wicket and took West indies past the 80-run mark.
