India continue to stay unbeaten in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 after defeating West Indies by 125 runs in match 34 of the tournament at Old Trafford, Manchester on Thursday. 

Skipper Virat Kohli decided to bat after winning the toss. 

Openers Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul helped the side register a strong start to the innings, scoring 29 runs in 5.6 overs before the former was dismissed for 18. Rahul and Kohli stitched a partnership of 69 runs to help the side rebuild. 

However, KL Rahul was dismissed for 48 in the 21st over which resulted in a mini-collapse with Vijay Shankar and Kedar Jadhav dismissed cheaply. Kohli stitched a partnership of 40 runs with MS Dhoni before the former was dismissed for 72. 

The veteran helped lead India to a score of 268 runs for the loss of seven wickets in 50 overs, with an unbeaten knock of 56 as all-rounder Hardik Pandya contributed a 38-ball 46 from the other end.  

In reply, the West Indies lost veteran Chris Gayle and Shai Hope for just six and five runs respectively, leaving the side in a precarious position at 16/2 in seven overs. It all went downhill from there on with the Indian bowling attack delivering a commendable performance, to bowl out their opponents for a score of 143 in 34.2 overs.
