Shimron Hetmyer hit a career-best 139 as West Indies beat India by eight wickets in the first one-day international in Chennai on Sunday.

Hetmyer put on a key 218-run second-wicket stand with opener Shai Hope, who made 102 not out, as West Indies chased down their target of 288 in 47.5 overs to lead the three-match series 1-0.

The left-handed Hetmyer finally fell to paceman Mohammed Shami, but Hope remained to complete the chase with Nicholas Pooran unbeaten on 29. 

The second ODI is on Wednesday in Visakhapatnam.
