Indian batting star Virat Kohli reached his 29th Test hundred on day 2 of the second Test against the West Indies at Port of Spain in Trinidad. The veteran batter reached the landmark in the 91st over of the day with a square drive off Shannon Gabriel’s bowling.

He also went on to hug his partner Ravindra Jadeja as well. The 34-year-old came at 182-4 on day 1 as India lost a cluster of wickets. However, he shared an unbroken 106-run stand with Ravindra Jadeja to take India to 288-4 at the end of day 1.
