Virat Kohli and India caught fire with the bat against the West Indies, who looked like a team that just did not want to be there.

Kohli was his usual awesome self in coloured clothes, making a mockery of the West Indies bowling with the likes of Suresh Raina, Ajinkya Rahane and Shikhar Dhawan also making their bats do the talking.

Much was expected from Kohli in this ODI series, and after a failure in the first one-day international in Kochi, the master showed he is on his way back towards form with a decent half-century at his home ground in Delhi.

However, this innings was of a much higher order, with the right-hander showing all of that grace and elegance en route to compiling a remarkable 20th century.

India's 330 for six was always going to be pretty hard to top for the West Indies, and so it proved to be as the India bowlers, particularly Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Akshar Patel, bowled brilliant to give the hosts a 59-run victory.

WI might have been capable of doing the improbable, if only they were in the right frame of mind to do it. Watching them on the field, especially in the first innings, the answer to that was emphatic no, with the bowlers not quite hitting their mark, while the fielding was abysmal.

West Indies, of course, were also not helped by some laughter-inducing work from a ball boy, who decided to pick up the ball well before it had hit the boundary line, just as Andre Russell was hoping to cut out the four.

It added a little bit of humour to the proceedings which had seen a pall of gloom descend over due to the fact that the West Indies decided to pull out of the rest of the India tour owing to a pay dispute with the WIPA and the WICB.

There was plenty of entertainment from India's perspective, however, and the batsmen and bowlers will certainly take the confidence gained by this win and hopefully run with it ahead of more challenging encounters.
