India’s 124 run loss to West Indies in Kochi last night is the second highest winning margin for the men from Caribbean against the men in Blue. Marlon Samuels scored a 116 ball 126 to secure a win for West Indies in the first ODI of the five match series. The highest victory margin for West Indies against India in terms of runs is 135 when the tourists humbled the host in the final ODI at Vijayawada during West Indies tour to India in 2002. The common thing between both these matches is Samuels’ century as he scored a century in that game 12 years ago. Here are the list of top five highest winning margin for West Indies against India.
