Virat Kohli, playing in his 500th International matches against West Indies in Port of Spain, made the moment more special for him by scoring his 76th century at the highest level as an Indian batter across formats.

Virat Kohli reached his 29th red-ball century on 21st July during the monsoon session of the second day’s play at Queen’s Park Oval.
