In the must-win second ODI at the VDCA Stadium, India amassed a mammoth 55 runs from just two overs as India went on to gather 79 runs in the last five overs to post a challenging 387/5 in 50 overs.

While Rishabh Pant hit a 16-ball 39, Iyer blasted 53 runs off 32 deliveries. Both Pant and Iyer's knocks were laced with three boundaries and four hits into the stands.

In the 47th over, they hit Chase for 31 runs, for most runs off an over in ODIs, beating 28 by Sachin Tendulkar and Ajay Jadeja against New Zealand at Hyderabad in 1999.

Here's how they scored: 46.1 - to Shreyas Iyer, no ball, byes, 1 run; 46.2 - to Shreyas Iyer, SIX, over deep mid-wicket; 46.3 - Shreyas Iyer, SIX, over deep mid-wicket; 46.4 - Shreyas Iyer, FOUR, behind square; 46.5 - to Shreyas Iyer, SIX, down the ground; 46.6 to Shreyas Iyer, SIX, over deep mid-wicket.

Watch the carnage here:

Earlier, openers Rohit Sharma (159) and K.L. Rahul (102) slammed respective centuries and laid a solid foundation for the hosts, sharing a 227-run partnership for the opening wicket.

With the ton, Rohit achieved another milestone as he joined former India skipper Sourav Ganguly and David Warner in the list of most ODI hundreds in a year.

In the ongoing contest of the three-match series, Rohit slammed his 28th ODI century, which was his seventh ton this year. Both Ganguly and Warner had seven centuries in the year 2000 and 2016 respectively. Former India great Sachin Tendulkar tops the chart for most tons in a year as he had smashed nine centuries in the year 1998.

Windies currently lead the series 1-0.
