5.55pm Phew. A long, long day, and an utterly one-sided game. Let's hope the rest of the series is a little more competitive. We'll bring you the third ODI, live, on Friday. Do join us for that, and keep sending in your feedback. Until then, goodbye!

Ajinkya Rahane is the man of the match. "Really happy with the way I played today, even in the first game. Didn't get an opportunity in the Champions Trophy, and I was hungry. It's lovely to open with Shikhar. He's in great form, we understand each other's game really well. We complement each other. Wicket was slightly damp initially. We wanted to take our time initially, as well as play our shots."

Virat Kohli: "It was a complete performance again. The partnership between Ajinkya and Shikhar was outstanding, and myself at the back end, with Yuvi, MS and Kedar chipping in. Early wickets for Bhuvi, and really happy for Kuldeep as well, bowling for the first time and taking three wickets. The bench strength has always been right up there for us. Jinks couldn't get a game in the Champions Trophy unfortunately, but shows his mental strength, steps in and scores runs. We'll sit down and decide as a team about changes that can be made [when asked about Pant]. We'll go to Antigua and regroup, and that's a possibility as well, give a few guys an opportunity."

Jason Holder: "We didn't really bowl that well. We didn't close out the innings well, and we didn't have momentum going at the start of our chase. I thought we were tight to their openers, but Shikhar Dhawan and Ajinkya Rahane are quality players, they played some good shots, beat the infield. Today I probably struggled a little with the wet ball [the high full-tosses]. I thought Shai played really well, he showed good intent, and got good support from Evin Lewis. Good to see Roston Chase coming in at the end and getting some runs as well."

5.34pm This match is officially over now, but it ended hours ago. West Indies lost two wickets in the first three overs of their chase, and were never in it thereafter, except for a brief period when Shai Hope was batting. Take out Hope's 85-ball 81, and the rest of their batsmen scored 115 off 173 balls. A pedestrian effort, in short. Two wickets to Bhuvneshwar, and three to Kuldeep Yadav who was bowling for the first time in ODIs.
