It was a clinical performance if there ever was one! Over 600 runs have been scored today courtesy of some tremendous batting by both teams. West Indies' Shimron Hetmyer scared us with his 106. A 300+ target is always difficult to chase down and not to mention psychologically damning. Yet our boys made a mockery of the target. It was a Virat Kohli - Rohit Sharma exhibition tonight as India beat West Indies by eight wickets.

VICTORY! 150! What an unbelievable performance by Team India! Sharma slams the ball hard for a six, taking him to 152* and also scoring the winning runs! That's called finishing it with swag. Way to go Hitman!

Rayudu will have a lot on his mind. He's up on the fourth position (yes, we're repeating it). Let's take a look at what convinced King Kohli to award him the spot. The new no. four has played 41 matches and has over 1,200 runs to his name. He's also got eight 50s and two 100s with a strike rate of 76.8. It is not hard to find replacements for a player if you're on the Indian team. We've got plenty of talent. And Rayudu knows that :)

Rayudu joins the party with a huge, lofted six! We can't blame him now, can we? India is almost home and dry, and that calls for a little slog and a quick finish doesn't it?

Ambati Rayudu comes in place of Kohli. The number four position has been in contention for a while now and Kohli thinks Rayudu is the man for the job. Can he live up to his captain's faith?

Remember when Virender Sehwag used to smash every ball? His teammates told him he was hitting the good deliveries and leaving the bad ones. Sehwag replied that he hit only the bad ones and not the other way round! That's exactly what's going on here today. With both Kohli and Sharma.

Holy sh*t! This is completely mad! Kohli and Sharma are killing it out there. If Kohli is dealing with fours, Sharma is dealing with sixes. It's not easy but these two men are making this match look like gully cricket!
