Marlon Samuels and Johnson Charles have taken control of the West Indies innings in the first One-Day International (ODI) against India at Kochi. At the end 10 overs, West Indies are 63 for one. Samuels is batting on 21 and Charles is on 41.

Charles has taken control at Kochi as he smashed three boundaries off Bhuvneshwar Kumar in the seventh over. He has been particularly dominant through the off-side. When Jaydev Unadkat came from round the wicket, Charles made room and carted him behind point for four.

Mohammed Shami was brought into the attack in the ninth over and Charles lofted him over the covers for four.

Samuels then merely placed Bhuvneshwar through the off-side and it travelled to the boundary. An edge then flew through the vacant slip region and went for a four.
