Kohli reaches milestone with latest brilliant ton


//

Virat Kohli posted a century and became India's second-highest scorer in one-day international cricket as he guided his team to a 59-run win over West Indies.

India posted 7-279 after winning the toss at Queen's Park Oval and choosing to bat.

West Indies were all out for 210 in 42 overs chasing a revised target of 270 from 46 overs because of rain, with Bhuvneshwar Kumar snaring four wickets.

Chris Gayle passed Brian Lara's West Indies record of 10,348 ODI runs but he only progressed to 10,353 before being trapped lbw by Kumar for 11.

Kohli scored 120 from 125 balls and passed Sourav Ganguly's career mark to move to No.2 on India's all-time list of ODI scorers behind Sachin Tendulkar.

He was dismissed by Carlos Brathwaite (3-53), caught by Kemar Roach at long-off.

Kohli's 42nd ODI century included 14 boundaries and one six and lifted his career tally to 11,406 runs. Tendulkar retired with 18,426 ODI runs.

Shreyas Iyer also contributed for India, scoring 71 from 68 balls before he was bowled by Jason Holder.

Evin Lewis top scored for the West Indies with an 80-ball 65.

The first ODI was washed out by rain after only 13 overs had been bowled. The third and final ODI is at Port of Spain on Wednesday.

India swept the Twenty20 series 3-0.
