Virat Kohli ends five-year wait with Port of Spain Test ton
Virat Kohli made his 29th Test century at Port of Spain on Friday against West Indies in the second Test of the World Test Championship series.
Kohli, who resumed on 87 on day two, completed a flawless hundred to take his tally of Test hundreds on par with Sir Donald Bradman.
The No.4 batter was in pristine touch in the previous Test too, but fell for 76 then, missing out on a deserved milestone. Here, he carried from where he left off, playing some crunching drives and flicks to make a fine hundred.
Marking his 500th international appearance for India, Kohli was in complete control throughout his innings.
After making four away hundreds in 2018, Kohli had to wait quite a while and this century is his first outside India in Tests since then.
It is his second century in the Caribbean Islands with his first converted into a double hundred back in 2016 in North Sound.
With 29 Test tons to his name, Kohli also went past Kane Williamson’s tally of 28 hundreds and has the third-most Test hundreds among active cricketers after Steve Smith (32) and Joe Root (30).
