India vs West Indies | Is Virat Kohli planning an early retirement?

West Indies tour of India 2018

Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma put together yet another 200-run partnership in ODIs - their fifth - to help India record a comfortable win in the first ODI of the five-match series.

It is dominated by Kohli, well, he breaks a record every time he holds that bat and walks out.

Virat Kohli has added to his incredible set of numbers with another stellar century in India's successful chase against West Indies.

Regarded as one of the classiest batsmen ever, India vice-captain Rohit Sharma can dismantle any bowling attack without much ado.

The hosts didn't get off to the best start when debutant pacer Oshane Thomas (1-83) bowled Shikhar Dhawan (4) early. 320 targets are very tricky, but we knew we could do it with a big partnership.

LeBron James made an electric start to life with the Los Angeles Lakers , but his impressive performance was not enough to earn the win.

Holder was probably the most economical bowler, going at just over five and a half an over as the remainder took a battering from Kohli and Rohit. I still think there are a lot positives.

"I'm extremely pleased with how the guys went out and batted - credit to Shimron Hetmyer on getting a hundred", Holder said following the match. "They're two quality players, world-class players". The Delhi batsman's post-match comment has left his fans wondering if Virat Kohli is planning an early retirement.

"We could have got a bit more had he carried on for 5-6 more overs, but this is a young team and we will learn". Up front we were obviously looking for wickets because we felt that that was the only way to win the game. For another, while they did decimate oppositions together, they barely came close to the domination that India's present top three exhibits: spread across the three possible permutations, the Rohit-Dhawan-Kohli trio has 18 150-plus stands in ODIs, whereas the Hayden-Gilchrist-Ponting trio managed seven between them.

They had appeared to put India on the backfoot when Hetmyer's 106 propelled them up to 322 for eight off their 50 overs - only their fourth 300-plus total since the 2015 World Cup - but Rohit slammed a robust, unbeaten 152 while Kohli stroked a breathtaking 140, to brutally snatch the game away from the Windies.
