#10: Sachin Tendulkar: 122 @ Harare (2001)

Score: 127 (114) // 4s: 13 // 6s: 3 // SR: 111.4
Virat Kohli, who was in his heyday in 2014, is back at number nine. Kohli hit 127 off 114 balls to help India reach 330/6 in 50 overs. Virat batted until the end and was only out on the final ball of the innings due to an unfortunate runout. Kohli hit 13 fours and three sixes in his 111.4-strike-rate knock.
#8: Yuvraj Singh, 131 @ Kingston (2009)
Score: 131 (102); 4s: 10; 6s: 7; SR: 128.4

#7: Virat Kohli: 140 @ Guwahati (2018)
Score: 140 (107); 4s: 21; 6s: 2; SR: 130.8
Virat Kohli’s most aggressive knock during an India vs. West Indies One-Day International Kohli was a beast against the West Indies in 2018, and this particular innings was no exception. During the innings, Virat hit 21 fours, the most he had against the West Indies. Kohli batted at a strike rate of 130.8 to help India knock down 323 in the 43rd over.
#6: Sachin Tendulkar, 141 @ Kuala Lumpur (2006)
Score: 141 (148) // 4s: 13 // 6s: 5 // SR: 95.3
At number six, we once again have Master Blaster, who scored 141 runs in a losing cause. The game is from the 2006 DLF Cup, when multi-nation tournaments were popular. Sachin hit 141 from 148 balls to help India reach a respectable total of 309. Unfortunately, rain interfered, and the West Indies were declared the champions using the DLS technique.
#5: Rohit Sharma, 152 @ Guwahati (2018)
Score: 152*(117) // 4s: 15 // 6s: 8 // SR: 129.9
Number 5 on the list is the first 150, which comes from none other than Rohit Sharma. Rohit, who was at his best in one-day internationals in 2018-19, blasted an unbeaten 152 off 117 balls to help India chase down 323 in 42.1 overs. Rohit struck eight sixes in his innings, the most by any Indian batsman against the West Indies in one-day internationals.
#4: Virat Kohli: 157 @ Visakhapatnam (2018)
Score: 157*(129) // 4s: 13 // 6s: 4 // SR: 121.7
Virat Kohli’s unbeaten 157 in Visakhapatnam appears for the fourth time on the list. The season of records appears to be 2018–19, given there have been so many large centuries scored over this time frame. Kohli’s 157 against the West Indies in 2018 remains his best score. Even though India scored a massive 321 in 50 overs, it ended in a draw.
#3: Rohit Sharma: 159 @ Visakhapatnam (2018)
Score: 159 (138) // 4s: 17 // 6s: 5 // SR: 115.2
In the same time period in 2018, Rohit Sharma, the man of hundreds, scored a massive 159 on Visakhapatnam’s flat surface. However, by Rohit Sharma’s standards, the innings could be a little slower. Once he hits 100, he goes into beast mode. Nonetheless, India scored a massive 387/5 and won the match by a comfortable 107 runs.
#2: Rohit Sharma, 162 @ Brabourne (2018)
Score: 162 (137) // 4s: 20 // 6s: 4 // SR: 118.2
Featuring on the list for the third time, the second highest score for India vs. West Indies comes from Rohit Sharma at his home ground, Brabourne, Mumbai. What’s more, this also comes in the 2018–19 period, as Rohit’s fabulous 162 off 137 balls guides India to a solid score of 377/5 in 50 overs. But unlike previous matches, the West Indies lost by a humongous 224 runs.
#1: Virender Sehwag, 219 @ Indore (2011)
Score: 219 (149) // 4s: 25 // 6s: 7 // SR: 146.9
Virender Sehwag holds the record for the highest ODI score by an Indian player against the West Indies. Indore is notorious for producing some high-scoring innings, and Sehwag’s remarkable double-hundred came against a formidable bowling group that included Roach, Narine, Russell, Rampaul, and others.
Sehwag’s greatest ODI knock of 219 off 149 balls helped India reach 418/5 in 50 overs, which is also India’s highest ODI score. Sehwag smashed 25 fours and seven sixes, totaling 142 runs in boundaries. His strike rate of 146.9 remains the best in any century knock against the West Indies.
