Thursday's first ODI between India and West Indies was abandoned due to rain in Guyana, but Indian skipper Virat Kohli found a way to entertain the fans in the stadium with some slick dance moves.


Kohli was seen shaking a leg with his former Royal Challengers Bangalore team mate and West Indies opener Chris Gayle.

"When in the Caribbean, breaking into a jig be like #TeamIndia #WIvIND," BCCI tweeted.

The series opener was abandoned because of rain after only 13 overs were bowled.

Put into bat, West Indies had recovered after a slow start to reach 54 for one in 13 overs.

Lewis, who rallied West Indies after a slow start, was batting on 40 from 36 balls, with the help of two fours and three sixes, while Shai Hope was unbeaten on six when umpires called off play.

Earlier, the start of play was delayed because of rain and wet outfield, which forced the match being reduced to 34-over-a-side.

The match was already reduced to 43-over-a side even before a ball being bowled as the wet outfield had forced the toss to be delayed.

The match began two hours later than the original 7pm IST start.

The first rain interruption was when the home side had scored 9 for no loss in 5.4 overs and the match was about to start 30 minutes later but the wet area near the bowlers' run-up led to another delay of more than half an hour.
