On Day2 of the second Test between India and West Indies at Queen's Park Oval, Virat Kohli scored his 29th Test century. With India at 314-4, Kohli hit the landmark with a boundary off Shannon Gabriel.
Kohli made his 500th appearance for India and his 111th Test appearance to reach the milestone.
Upon reaching a splendid score of 121, he unfortunately fell victim to a run-out, marking India's total at an impressive 341-5. Remarkably, this incident marks only the third time in his illustrious Test career that Kohli has been run out.
The last time Kohli scored a century on the international stage was in 2018. In December 2018, while on tour with India, he scored a hundred in an away Test match in Australia.
He made history in cricket, being the first player to score 100+ runs in their 500th match. No one else has achieved even a half-century on such an occasion. His remarkable feat cements his name in the sport's record books.
The batter came to the crease on Thursday night with India 153 for 2, and by the end of the day, India had reached 288 for 4, having recovered from a rough afternoon session.
Kohli ranks tenth in total matches played and has 76 centuries. He's 24 centuries behind Sachin Tendulkar, who leads with 664 matches. A cricketing legend in the making.
Grateful for your time!
