KINGSTON – West Indies were overpowered by a dazzling unbeaten hundred from India captain Virat Kohli, as they lost the decisive fifth One-Day International by eight wickets yesterday.

Entering the contest at Sabina Park on a high following their sensational victory in the fourth ODI five days ago, the Windies were brought down to earth by Kohli’s high-class 111 not out which helped the Asian powerhouses to easily overhaul their target of 206 in the 37th over and clinch a 3-1 series victory.

The century was Kohli’s 28th in ODIs and a record 18th in run chases, and provided the ideal finale for the series after he had struggled with failures in his previous two innings.

He struck 12 fours and two sixes in a 115-ball knock and put on 79 for the second wicket with opener Ajinkya Rahane, who made 39 off 51 balls. (CMC)
