However, he was clean-shaven on the opening match-day of the ODI series, but his new beard looking picture already went viral on the social media accounts.

Coming to the first ODI of the series at Guwahati on Sunday, India clinched a comfortable victory against the visiting side Windies and has taken the 1-0 lead of the series.

After winning the toss, Indian skipper Virat Kohli decided to field first. With the help of young Shimron Hetmyer’s brilliant century knock (106) and some crucial supporting knocks, Windies put a challenging total of 322/8 on the board at the end of 50 overs.

In reply, with the help of dual centuries by the Indian captain (Virat Kohli) and ODI vice-captain (Rohit Sharma), India reached the target comfortably in 42.1 overs after losing only two wickets (326/2) as the hosts won the match by eight wickets with 47 balls remaining. Kohli scored 140 off 107 balls (21 fours and 2 sixes) while Sharma was not out at the end on 152 runs off 117 balls (15 fours and 8 sixes).

While the top-order batsmen totally controlled the game, there was no need of MS Dhoni’s batting assistance. As the wicketkeeper, Dhoni took a catch to dismiss the opposing wicketkeeping-batsman Shai Hope for 32 runs.

The second ODI of the series will be played on Wednesday (October 24) at Dr. Y. S. Rajasekhara Reddy ACA–VDCA Cricket Stadium (Visakhapatnam).
