Skipper Kohli backs Rayudu for fourth spot

Skipper Kohli backs Rayudu for fourth spot

On Sunday, Kohli and Rohit showed why they were ranked first and second respectively in the ICC ODI rankings for batsmen after they made a mockery of a stiff 323-run chase, chasing it down with 7.5 overs left.

"Feels pretty good. A convincing win".

Opener Kieran Powell ensured a brisk start for the West Indies despite losing his debutant partner Chandrapaul Hemraj for nine.

The Caribbean fast bowlers and spinners were treated with equal disdain by the 29-year-old Kohli, who smashed 21 fours and two sixes during his classy knock.

The Assam Sports Journalist Association (ASJA) wrote to the BCCI, placing the grievances of the journalists covering the match, the first day-night ODI in the Assam Cricket Association Stadium here. His compatriot Keiron Powell was skimming runs at the other end and quietly reached his half-century.

There was a period when India belted 49 runs in five overs with the pair completing a double-century stand. Rohit took 84 deliveries to reach his 20th century.

In a clip she posted online, Amy was sitting in a bar. "Follow her and VOTE!" 'Thank you for thinking of my womb, ' she said. Schumer, who is expecting her first child with husband Chris Fischer , spoofed a photo of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex .

Devendra Bishoo, on 22, and Kemar Roach, on 26, put on 44 runs for their ninth wicket unbeaten stand to take West Indies well past the 300-run mark. He would look to make up for his failure, just like India's Shikhar Dhawan. Rohit, on the other hand, played a touch slower innings, standing second fiddle to Kohli. They played proper cricketing shots, and didn't take any chances. Overall, the Indian skipper hit 21 fours and two sixes.

"Happens very rarely when Rohit plays second fiddle", said Kohli of his partner. "It was one of those days where I felt good and I told Rohit I will continue to bat this way positively and maybe you can play the anchor role", he added.

Roach will get another opportunity on Wednesday, and so will the likes of Devendra Bishoo, and skipper Jason Holder himself.

Hetmyer took charge of the innings and made good use of flawless batting conditions as he smacked six fours and six sixes.

"Pleased with the guys for the batting effort".

Hetmyer shifted gears in the company of Holder who offered solid support. "That is something to learn for us". Yes the game was taken away from us Kohli and Sharma.
