Kohli powers India to ODI series win

Kohli blow on thumb Indian captain Kohli first to score 20000 international runs in a decade

Captain Virat Kohli and Shreyas Iyer poured on the runs again for India to beat the West Indies comfortably in the third one-day worldwide and take the series 2-0 on Wednesday (Thursday NZ time).

The left-handed opener - the self proclaimed Universe boss - punished the Indian bowlers with five sixes and eight shots to the fence in his entertaining knock.

Gayle was involved with opener Evin Lewis in a 115-run stand.

While Kohli's presence at the crease eased the pressure for India in both ODIs - they were 101 for 3 in the second game looking to set a target and were 92 for 3 chasing a stiff target in the third game - Iyer's handling of the situations was something that impressed Kohli as the Mumbai batsman forged strong partnerships with his skipper and did not let pressure get the better of him.

The 24-year-old Iyer, in his ninth ODI, lashed three fours and five sixes and by the time he chipped seamer Kemar Roach to Holder at long off in the 29th over, victory was all but assured.

Kohli is also now the first player to score 20,000 worldwide runs in a single decade. Gayle, whose jersey had the number 301 on its back as a nod towards the number of ODIs he has played, was congratulated by the Indian players and given a standing ovation by the crowd as he walked off.

The rains arrived at the end of the 22nd over with West Indies on 158 and when play resumed three hours later, they had only 13 overs left in their innings.

Tottering on 92 for three, India were need of something special and got it through Kohli and Iyer who put on 120 for the fourth wicket to take the game away from West Indies. "He was entertaining, he showed presence, and that's just what people have come to expect of Chris Gayle over the years". Carlos Brathwaite added 16 runs with a six and a four. West Indies made 240 runs in their 35 overs and the target was revised to 255.

Spinner Chahal was the only bowler who commanded some respect from the West Indian marauder.

After steady progression, Dhawan and Rishabh Pant fell in quick succession. Fans Troll Wicket-Keeper Batsman for First-Ball Duck.

West Indies opted to omit two of their pacers - Sheldon Cottrell and Oshane Thomas - in preference for all-rounder Keemo Paul and left-arm spinner Fabian Allen. The way he (Shreyas Iyer) batted out there, he took a lot of pressure off me.

Iyer, who had a few solid knocks for India A leading up to this series, showed that he belonged on the worldwide stage.

Kohli continued to be the rock of the India innings and brought up his century with the visitors closing in on victory.

Rain halted play for the third match in a row in the ODI series between hosts Windies and India.
