West Indies tour of India 2018

Once that barrier was passed - with Kohli past 50 in no time - West Indies stood no chance against the pair, who played it turn by turn to beat them into pulp with a 246-run stand that came at 7.45. While Kohli was the aggressor, Rohit preferred to play second fiddle as India chased down the target of 323 with 47 balls to spare.

Skipper Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma hit sparkling centuries Sunday to lead India's eight-wicket demolition of West Indies in the first One-Day International here. India dominated with the bat throughout the innings as Rohit remained unbeaten on 152 while Virat was dismissed for 140. Chasing a challenging score of 322, India lost Shikhar Dhawan with just 10 runs on the board. 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 worldwide wicket. Kohli notched up his 36th hundred while Rohit's 20th century puts him fourth on the list of centuries by Indians. The fall of wicket brought in Ambati Rayudu (22 not out) who played sensibly with Rohit and the duo guided India home comfortably.

The India skipper completed 2000 runs in a calendar year for the third consecutive year when batting he reached 42.

Trump says 'my biggest threat is the Fed'
Under Powell, the Fed has been gradually raising rates as the economy has strengthened as a way to prevent a run-up in inflation. But as a sitting member of the Fed Board, Quarles is also a voting member of the Federal Open Market Committee.

West Indies had its moments in the game when Hetmyer smashed six fours and six sixes during his 78-ball knock to give his side what looked like a competitive total.

West Indies (From): Jason Holder (capt), Sunil Ambris, Devendra Bishoo, Shimron Hetmyer, Shai Hope, Ashley Nurse, Keemo Paul, Rovman Powell, Kemar Roach, Marlon Samuels, Fabian Allen, Chandrapaul Hemraj, Oshane Thomas, Obed McCoy, and Kieran Powell. Put in to bat, West Indies started the proceedings on a positive note but pacer Mohammad Shami dismissed opener Hemraj (9) in the fifth over. The duo put on 246 for the second wicket and teammate Yuzvendra Chahal feels that the way Kohli and Rohit bat at times, it is nearly like they are playing PS4. India made a decision to play with three pacers (Umesh Yadav, Khaleel Ahmed and Mohammed Shami) and two spinners (Chahal and Ravindra Jadeja).
