WI beat India by 8 wickets in 1st ODI, Hetmyer, Hope hit tons

Shimron Hetmyer cracked a career-best 139 while Shai Hope scored an unbeaten 102 as the West Indies romped to a eight-wicket victory against India in the first One-Day International at the M.A. Chidambaram Stadium here on Sunday.

Chasing a challenging 288 for a victory on a sluggish wicket, 22-year old Hetmyer took 106 balls for his sensational 139 which was studded with 11 fours and seven huge sixes. The left-hander was dropped on 106 by Shreyas Iyer off Deepak Chahar but most of the damage was already done by then.

Wicketkeeper-batsman Hope gave Hetmyer excellent company with a patient 102 off 151 balls (7×4, 1×6), bringing up his hundred in 149 balls by hitting Chahar for a six and a four in the 47th over.
