1.21pm Twenty-one minutes late here. Definite over-rate fine coming WI's way. Forget that, though. Kohli gets a standing ovation as he walks back. He acknowledges the applause with a raised bat. His acceleration towards the end was stark. Ashwin has scored only 25 of this 90-run partnership. Kohli has gone from 35 off 45 to 102 off 83. That innings has taken India to 311. India now stand a good chance to win this. To get a bonus point, they need to restrict West Indies to 248. We will see you around 1.50pm

DJ Bravo to Kohli, OUT, Kohli falls, but to the final ball of the innings. He gets a length ball, tries to clear deep midwicket, but can't. Just doesn't get the elevation on this. Kohli has done the job, though

DJ Bravo to Ashwin, 1 run, looks to make room, gets a bottom edge on this for a single
DJ Bravo to Kohli, 1 run, full, on the pads, whipped away for a single
DJ Bravo to Kohli, 2 runs, and there it is. Captain Kohli scores his 14th ODI century. Pushed wide of deep midwicket, comes back for the second, and leaps in the air after crossing the stumps. Then pats himself on the back with his bat. He is pumped
DJ Bravo to Ashwin, 1 run, Kohli has to dive in to stay alive. It is predecided that Ashwin is going to push and run. However, he pushes it back to the bowler, and Kohli has to dive in full length

Axe Man: "Dissent of any form serves no purpose. Once the umpire has made their decision, it is final and complaining about it achieves nothing. Arguing with the referee or umpire in any sport is frowned upon as it is a form of intimidation, an attempt to get a more favourable decision next time."

DJ Bravo to Kohli, 1 run, full toss, on the pads, flicked away to deep midwicket

Last over coming up. Kohli needs just three to bring up a special century

Roach to Kohli, 1 run, a leg-bye to end the over as this is angled in
Roach to Kohli, FOUR runs, what a sublime shot. Roach finally tries the yorker, but Kohli dances down the track, and takes this on the full, and drives it between cover and extra cover. All along the ground

pauly mac: "That awkward moment when you realise there's more value in your captain sitting injured on the bench! #Bravo"

Roach to Ashwin, 1 run, short again, hip-high, pulled away for a single to bring up India's 300
Roach to Ashwin, FOUR runs, bouncer again. Ashwin is backing away, tries to upper-cut it, gets a bit of an edge, but that's twice as nice as it goes fine of third man
Roach to Kohli, 1 leg bye, length ball, into the pads, concedes a leg-bye

Subhash Agarwal: "Mahatma Gandhi showed plenty of dissent and still was a perfect Gentleman, even in the eyes of British!"

Roach to Kohli, FOUR runs, where are the yorkers? Bowlers, please. Don;t bowl short to Kohli at the end of an ODI innings. He picks it, doesn't matter he is on front foot, and he pulls it wide of long-on for four more

Thirteen minutes late and counting

  • What makes Bhuvneshwar a threat?
