India name unchanged squad for 2nd ODI vs West Indies

Kohli becomes the 13 batsman, and fifth Indian, to join the elite club.

Visakhapatnam, India: Skipper Virat Kohli became the fastest-ever batsman to reach 10,000 one-day global runs, smashing an unbeaten 157 as India posted 321 for six against the West Indies on Wednesday.

His last ODI was in 2014, the fourth match of the dramatic series against India in Dharamsala, after which the West Indies flew home in protest against their board, cutting the tour short. Windies needed five runs from the last ball as Hope smashed a boundary to seal a draw.

The right-handed Hope stroked an unbeaten 123 from 134 deliveries, while Hetmyer slammed 94 from 64 balls to energise the Windies run chase. He also mentioned that they need to be more consistent as a team.

India won their opening match Sunday, with Kohli making 140.

Save the one dropped catch by West Indies skipper Jason Holder who ran backwards from mid-off, Kohli looked untroubled throughout and seemed to be satisfied with the way his partner at the other end, Rayudu, was batting. Rayudu was bowled by spinner Ashley Nurse.

Levante game vital for future of Real Madrid and coach Lopetegui
Los Blancos, under coach Julen Lopetegui are now ranked fifth, having won only four of their eight La Liga games. Lopetegui had thrown Bale on at the interval while Benzema and Dani Ceballos were introduced on the hour.

And his campaign in the ongoing Regional Super50 has been less than stellar, with just 69 runs and seven wickets in five outings, putting in doubt any participation in next year's World Cup.

In a stunning spectacle played out at Visakhapatnam where no team emerged out as a clear victor or a loser, both the teams fought with all their might.

Cricket West Indies chief executive Johnny Grave said recently that Bravo was now competing against the likes of fellow all-rounders Andre Russell, Kieron Pollard, Carlos Brathwaite and Rovman Powell, but said the door remained open for the veteran "once he performs in Super50".

"Shai Hope is a young talent and he played a magnificent knock". Both the bowlers were rested from the Test squad as well as the first two matches after they featured in the Asia Cup winning squad.

The third ODI will be played at Pune on Saturday.
