Half-centuries from Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli helped India to a six-wicket win against West Indies in the first one-day international.
Set a target of 212 in Kochi, opening batsman Sharma hit 72 and No.3 Kohli 86 as India cruised home with 14.4 overs to spare.
It was another difficult day for West Indies, who lost both matches in the preceding Test series by an innings and got off to an awful start after opting to bat.
Opener Chris Gayle was run out for a duck in the first over and had to be stretchered off with a leg injury that is likely to end his participation in the three-match series.
Johnson Charles (42) and Darren Bravo (59) were the main contributors as West Indies were bowled out for 211 in 48.5 overs.
India spinners Ravindra Jadeja (3-37) and Suresh Raina (3-34) each claimed three of the wickets to fall.
Sharma dispatched eight fours and a six in his 81-ball innings and put on 133 with Kohli after the early loss of Shikhar Dhawan, caught behind in Jason Holder's opening spell.
Ravi Rampaul denied Sarma a century and Holder did the same to Kohli, who was caught by Sunil Narine having hit nine fours and a six from 84 deliveries.
Instead, it was left to Yuvraj Singh (16no) and India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni (13no) to finish off the run chase in the 36th over.
The series continues in Visakhapatnam on November 24.
