Kohli continues to rewrite the record books.

Australian southpaw batsman Matthew Hayden is the fifth quickest as the opener got there in 132 innings. Meanwhile, Kohli also went past the record of Virender Sehwag who had scored 23 Test hundreds for India.

On the other hand, Virat Kohli batted with ease against the depleted Windies side. Kohli concentrated more on picking up the singles with a spread field. In fact, the Indian skipper scored only seven boundaries in his fine knock. Thus, Kohli ran the majority of his runs in singles and doubles.

Meanwhile, Kohli was well supported by Rishabh Pant who scored a blistering 92 off just 84 balls. The combative batsman scored eight fours and four sixes in his knock.

Thus, India has strengthened their grip on the match as they are currently batting on 506-5. Kohli is still unbeaten on 120 and he was given a life by Devendra Bishoo when he was dropped on 114 runs.

Subsequently, India will look to continue their domination against the Windies side. The visitors didn’t have any kind of plans against the Indian juggernauts as Virat Kohli and Pant continued to dictate terms to them.
