It was a bad day at the office for the Windies, who cannot finish in the top four and make the knockout stage.

India's attack appeared assured as they piled on the runs after choosing to bat, with KL Rahul opening with 48 from 64 balls.

Kohli's 72 kept the momentum for his side, and MS Dhoni ended his day 56 not out.

The set target was always going to be an uphill battle for the West Indies, but it wasn't until the second half of their innings before they lost all hope.

Chris Gayle was gone for only six after 19 deliveries, but the Caribbean team were 101 for five before their dramatic collapse.

Sunil Ambris made 31 and Nicholas Pooran scored 28, but that was as good as it got for the eventual losing side.

Mohammed Shami took four wickets for 16 runs as India's bowlers ripped through the order, and Jasprit Bumrah and Yuzvendra Chahal both claimed a pair.

The two-time World Cup champions didn't have enough in the tank, and India reaffirmed their position as one of the tournament favourites.

Sri Lanka and South Africa will meet on Friday at Durham, England, in the group stage. The Sri Lankans, currently seventh out of 10 teams, need a win in their efforts to claim a top-four berth.
