Virat Kohli struck yet another century in the 3-match ODI series against the Windies as his unbeaten 114 in the final ODI sealed a 2-0 series victory for the visitors. He hit 14 fours during his 99-ball 114 to power India to a 6-wicket win in the rain-affected game. Chasing a revised target of 255 in 35 overs, India got to a decent start but lost a couple of wickets in a quick spare. Kohli guided the chase along with Shreyas Iyer as the duo shared yet another century partnership.
