Virat Kohli, despite hitting five half-centuries in the recently concluded World Cup 2019, was unable to find a three-figure score in the showpiece event. Virat Kohli, however, ended a long patch of century drought in the 50-over format with a hundred against the West Indies in the second ODI of the three-match series. India won T20I series 3-0 and emerged victorious in ODI series 2-0. The number 1 Test side is now eyeing to wrap up things with another series win, this time in the longest format of the game.
India captain Virat Kohli, who got back his century-hitting prowess back, is very close to reach another milestone. He is just one century away from equalling former Australia skipper Ricky Ponting's landmark of 19 tons as a captain. A century in Antigua will qualify Kohli to share the spot with Australia's legendary batsman.
The list is however topped by former South Africa skipper Graeme Smith who smashed 25 tons in 109 Tests. Interestingly, 17 of his tons came overseas.
India will play the first Test of the two-match series, from August 22 at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua.
The second and the final Test match will be played at historic Sabina Park in Jamaica from August 30.
