Chris Gayle got his record. But Virat Kohli’s runs were the ones that really counted in the second MyTeam11 One-Day International yesterday. Gayle (11) got the seven runs he needed to become the West Indies’ leading scorer in ODIs, surpassing Brian Lara (10,438).

But Kohli’s 120 (14 fours, one six) set up an eventually comfortable 59-run win for India on the Duckworth/Lewis method. The win gave them a 1-0 lead in the three-match series with one game left. Kohli’s 42nd ODI century was the kind of substantial innings the West Indies top order yet again failed to produce.
