Xtra Time Web Desk: Team India’s star batsman Virat Kohli scored his 29th Test century during the second day of the second Test against the West Indies at Queen’s Park Oval on Friday 21 July. It was its 76 international hundreds in all formats. It was even more special when Virat reached his hundredth in his 500th cap.
Kohli resumed Day 2 at 87 and seemed intent on hitting the triple-figure mark. He reached his hundred with a cap off Shannon Gabriel as India’s score stood at 314-4.

With this century, Kohli now boasts a staggering total of 76 international centuries in all formats in his illustrious 500-match international career. Alongside his 29 Test centuries, he has 46 ODI tons and a hundred in T20I cricket.
