In the ongoing second Test match against West Indies at Queen’s Park Oval, Indian batsman Virat Kohli notched up his 29th Test century on Friday. This achievement marks a highly productive period for Kohli, as he has managed to sustain his excellent form. What makes this century particularly special is the fact that it comes after a gap of nearly five years. During this time, Kohli faced a slump in form and criticism, but he persevered to create this memorable moment for himself.
Indian cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar expressed his admiration for Virat Kohli’s remarkable innings on Instagram, writing, “Another day, another century by @virat.kohli. Well played!”
Notably, this match also marked Virat Kohli’s 500th international appearance, making him the first player ever to score a century in their 500th international game. Kohli’s century in this match also broke several records, as it was his first away Test century since 2018.
