This was his 13th ODI century, making him the fourth member of the West Indies to do so in their 100th game, joining Ramnaresh Sarwan, Chris Gayle, and Gordon Greenidge. He also became the tenth person overall to accomplish this massive feat.

Earlier, at the Queen’s Park Oval in Port of Spain, West Indies captain Nicholas Pooran won the toss and decided to bat first against India.

Despite putting up a valiant effort in the first ODI against Shikhar Dhawan and company, Nicolas Pooran’s team came up just short.
