Indian bowlers found the going tough after a good start as Jonathan Carter smashed his way to a remarkable century, taking West Indies A to 279 for six in the second unofficial ODI at Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore on Tuesday.

The 25-year-old Carter dominated the West Indies innings by smashing the Indian attack to all corners of the ground, scoring an impressive 133 off 132 balls.

He took his time in establishing control on a pitch that offered good bounce for the bowlers but was productive for batsmen who were willing to be patient.

Carter plundered 18 fours and two sixes in a fine display. His hundred came after he had been dropped on six Yusuf Pathan.

During the course of the knock, he shared a couple of fruitful partnerships -- 79 for the third wicket with Kirk Edwards (36) and 131 runs for the fifth wicket with Leon Johnson (39).

Brief scores: West Indies 279/6 in 50 overs (J Carter 133, R Vinay Kumar 3/56) beat India 224 in 48.4 overs (Yuvraj 40, M Cummins 4/31)
