Virat Kohli on Wednesday became the fastest ever to 10,000 ODI runs. The right-handed batsman became the fifth Indian to touch the 10,000 ODI-run mark after Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly, Rahul Dravid and MS Dhoni.

"(I just wanted to) just get bat on ball, try to hit in the gaps, push hard for twos and get it as close as possible", Hope said of his plans at the death.

When he eventually came, Pant also fell quickly, for a 13-ball 17, but Kohli remained strong and shifted gears to launch another onslaught, barely three days after a blazing 140-run knock.

Dwayne Bravo will not wear West Indies colours again.

Windies could have removed Kohli for 44 but captain Jason Holder dropped a chance off the bowling of McCoy running towards the long-off boundary. What is a match-winning target, if 322 has proved to be woefully inadequate? The seamer also contributed to the global side with 86 Test wickets and 199 ODI wickets. Rayudu was bowled by spinner Ashley Nurse. Both the teams have scored more than 300 runs in two matches so far and clearly, the Caribbean side has surprised everyone including the hosts with the fight they've put up.

He remains more than 8,000 runs behind Tendulkar, who amassed over 18,000 runs and 49 centuries in 463 one-day internationals.

Shai Hope was the flawless foil for the marauding Hetmyer, as the former kept rotating strikes while finding the fence on a fairly regular basis.

Kohli cashed in to record his third-highest score in ODIs, after his 183 against Pakistan in Dhaka in 2012 and unbeaten 160 against South Africa in Cape Town earlier this year.
