Yuvraj Singh struck a brutal 89-ball 123 and Yusuf Pathan's allround performance propelled India A to 77-run victory over West Indies A in the first of the three-match unofficial ODI series.
Ashley Nurse waged a lone battle in the end with his 50-ball 57 but proved not enough to take West Indies A home.
India A bowlers also fired in unison to bowl out Windies A to 235 in 39.1 overs.
EArlier, Yuvraj produced a sensational exhibition of strokeplay to tear apart the West Indies 'A' bowlers as he struck eight fours and seven sixes in his scintillating innings at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium.
Mandeep Singh and Yusuf Pathan played perfect second fiddle to help themselves to 67 (78 balls; 7x4, 1x6) and 70 not out (32 balls; 4x4, 6x6) after West Indies 'A' chose to field as the match was reduced to a 42-over-a-side affair after wet outfields forced its start to be delayed by one hour and 45 minutes.
Yuvarj, who had no match practice until now, was simply superb with his drives on the up and the pull shots which all came with impeccable placement and timing. He treated the visiting team bowlers with disdain in the later part of his innings by unleashing his wide range of strokes in his entertaining innings.
The 31-year-old left-hander was though circumspect in the beginning as he took 39 balls to hit his first boundary and scored his fifty in 61 balls. But, in the next 19 balls he raced to his century as a torrent of fours and sixes followed from his blade as the visiting bowlers had no clue how to contain him.
Yuvraj got able support from Mandeep, who shared a 100-run stand for the third wicket with him before Yusuf, who is also looking for a national team comeback, gave him company for 125 runs for the fourth wicket from just 55 balls.
Yuvraj smote Nikita Miller for three sixes and a four to collect 23 runs in the 25th over to reach to 90 and then raised his 18th List A hundred in style with a six off Ronsford Beaton in the 38th over. He took 24 runs off that over with two sixes and three fours.
Yusuf took the score past 300 with a late flurry of fours and sixes after Yuvraj was out in the 40th over.
West Indies 'A' bowlers got some help early on but once the sun was out the pitch flattened up.
India 'A' found themselves in a spot of bother after openers Unmukt Chand (1) and Robin Uthappa (23), who were in fine form against New Zealand A side earlier in the month, had returned to the pavilion with the scoreboard reading just 47.
The start could not have been worse for India A as they lost Chand for one in the third over of the match. Paceman Miguel Cummins produced an excellent outswinger that forced Chand to cut but eventually gave a simple catch to Devon Thomas behind the stumps.
After the early loss of Chand, Uthappa and Mandeep put on a 39-run stand before the Bangalore lad in his zeal to score quick runs tried too many things and fell to Andre Russell for 23 after scoring two boundaries.
However, Mandeep and Yuvraj rebuilt the innings and added exactly 100 runs for the third wicket before the former got out in the 31st over.
Mandeep came into bat when the total was eight for one and encountered some problems against West Indies 'A' fast bowlers who exploited the morning condition to their advantage. However, Mandeep soon settled down and hit some sparkling strokes on both sides of the wicket.
Pathan then showcased his hard-hitting batting abilities to add 125 runs for the fourth wicket with Yuvraj in just 55 balls. Pathan was severe against right-arm off-break bowler Ashley Nurse and right-arm leg-break bowler Nkruma Bonner.
