In a rare week in which there was very little international cricket played, Virat Kohli's century for India wins him the Cricket World Player Of The Week award.

Kohli hit 127 in 114 balls to set up a 59-run win in the fourth One-Day International in Dharamshala.

He blasted 13 fours and three sixes during his innings as India racked up 330 for six.

The West Indies were then bowled out for 271 to hand India 2-1 series win with the fifth game and the rest of the tour abandoned.

This was Kohli's 20th century and his return to form has been one of the positives for India during this curtailed series.

The third ODI was abandoned due to bad weather and it was a similar story in Sri Lanka, where the second Women's One-Day International was also abandoned.

Sri Lanka and South Africa shared the series with a win apiece as Marizanne Kapp, Lizelle Lee and Chamari Atapattu played key roles.

Marlon Samuels also deserves a mention as he slammed 112 during his side's defeat to India in Dharamshala and there were also half-centuries for Suresh Raina and Ajinkya Rahane.
