KXIP vs KKR Live Score

India squad (From): Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli (capt), Ambati Rayudu, Rishabh Pant, MS Dhoni (wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Umesh Yadav, Mohammad Shami, and Khaleel Ahmed.

This was also Hetmyer's third century in ODIs and he has taken only 13 innings to do so, thus becoming the fastest West Indian to reach there.

With Kohli and Sharma in full flow, Holder said the "only way out is to get them out". "And life isn't hard when Rohit is at the other end", Kohli said at the presentation.

The move was made "in recognition of the club legend's 12-year association with the club", Man City said. Guardiola decided against rushing City's player of the year back for that top-of-the-table clash.

Kohli and Sharma then came together and stayed until the 33rd over, putting on 246 runs for the second wicket in a masterly batting display to lead India to victory.

West Indies captain Jason Holder conceded that his team fell 30-40 runs short. "They are two legends and when they are playing like this, it sometimes feels like they are playing PS4", said the leg-spinner. Up front we went to get wickets as that was the only way to put them under pressure. The flamboyant opener likes to score daddy hundreds and once he gets going in his topmost gear, it is hard to put a break on his ride. Yes the game was taken away from us Kohli and Sharma.

The ton was his 14th as India's ODI captain, edging him closer to Ricky Ponting's record 22 as Australian skipper. Once that barrier was passed - with Kohli past 50 in no time - West Indies stood no chance against the pair, who played it turn by turn to beat them into pulp with a 246-run stand that came at 7.45.

Powell bossed a second-wicket stand of 56 with Shai Hope (32) after the exit of Chandrapaul Hemraj (9), but Windies slipped to 114-4 once they were removed, with their dismissals sandwiching Marlon Samuels' duck.
