Virat Kohli has become accustomed to achieving what has never been done before at the crease but the India captain will want to forget his latest record in a hurry.

History was made in Visakhapatnam on Wednesday, when both captains were out for a golden duck for the first time in an One-Day International (ODI).

Kohli was dismissed first ball by Windies skipper Kieron Pollard before India went on to pile on 387-5 in the second match of the series, openers Rohit Sharma (159) and KL Rahul (102) blasting centuries.

Pollard was then given a taste of his own medicine, the all-rounder caught behind off Mohammed Shami in a brief visit to the middle as India closed in on an emphatic series-levelling victory.
