Gayle passes Lara to become Windies record ODI scorer

West Indies Resist Sentimental Chris Gayle Test Recall To Face India West Indies have kept faith with practically the squad that earned a 2-1 series victory over England

After a washed out series-opener in Guyana, both India and the West Indies were looking to have a productive training session at the Queen's Park Oval, the venue of the second One-Day International (ODI).

His remarks came after Kohli's knock of 120 runs in the match.

The Men in Blues named an unchanged XI in the second ODI while Jason Holder had to make a forced change.

Gayle was given a standing ovation and a shake of the hand by Kohli when he surpassed Lara's tally, but Bhuvneshwar sent him on his way soon after leg before.

Adding to Windies' woes, the swashbuckling southpaw Chris Gayle, who is set to hang his boots from ODIs after this series, showed a lacklustre performance with 4 runs off 31 balls when the team expected him to launch fireworks. We knew if we could get one or two wickets then we would be back in the game.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praised intelligence and security forces for locating and arresting the suspects. The site - known as Temple Mount to Jews and as the Noble Sanctuary to Muslims - has often been a flashpoint for clashes.

"My catch, I just took it!" he said with a laugh at the press conference. "The more stops you have, the more you want to be careful to ensure that the players don't injure themselves", Kohli said at the post-match presentation. We lost crucial wickets at the back end to lose the game. Only 13 overs were bowled after the home side were put in to bat when India captain Virat Kohli won the toss, with the West Indies reaching 54 for one before rain drove them off the field.

While, the Indian skipper danced with his teammates on several occasions, he even managed to rope in Chris Gayle, his former Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) teammate. The partnership of 125 runs between Kohli and Shreyas Iyer was the main reason that India went past the 270-run mark.

Inclement weather forced the abandonment of the first one-day worldwide between the West Indies and India at the Guyana National Stadium on Thursday, after Chris Gayle was made to wait for the hosts' ODI run-scoring record.

"It's totally the management's decision where they want to play me", he said.

Kohli played his first ODI against West Indies in the 2009 Champions Trophy in Johannesburg in which he scored an unbeaten 79. Following the conclusion of the ODI series, the two teams will feature in two Tests in Antigua and Jamaica.
