In the second Test match between India and West Indies (IND vs WI 2nd Test Match), Virat Kohli did wonders.
In the second Test match between India and West Indies (IND vs WI 2nd Test Match), Virat Kohli completed his 29 centuries in the biggest format of cricket by scoring an amazing century. But the amazing thing is that Virat alone has not completed his 29th century on this ground against the West Indies. Prior to that, Sachin Tendulkar had scored his 29th Test century against the West Indies on the same ground of Queens Park Oval. In the second match of the series against the Caribbean team, Virat has repeated history once again. However, Virat has achieved this feat in the least number of matches, which is another achievement of his career.
After a full five years, Virat’s bat scored a century on foreign soil and this drought also ended. Virat has done this feat in his 500th Test match and has become the only batsman in the world to do so. The Port of Spain ground on which Virat has completed his century with a brilliant cover drive, on the same ground Sachin Tendulkar, who is called the God of cricket, also scored his 29th century in Test career. Sachin completed his century here in 2002 with two runs and equaled Sir Don Bradman.
This relation of 29th century with West Indies is old
It is not only Virat or Sachin who have done the feat of scoring a Test century against the West Indies while playing at their home. The amazing thing is that legend Sunil Gavaskar also scored his 29th Test century while playing against the West Indies at this very ground. Former captain Gavaskar also played an innings of 121 runs here, while Virat Kohli was also dismissed after scoring 121 runs on Friday. At the same time, Sachin scored 117 runs in his century innings.
