Virat Kohli back to record breaking mode

Virat Kohli, the Indian captain, scored his 67th International hundred, considered to be the best Limited Over International batsman by many.

No hundreds in 9 World Cup games and now he is back to the scoring hundreds again. Virat Kohli has been in great touch in World Cup, scoring five fifties but was unable to convert them into hundreds. But today he has scored his 42nd ODI Hundred, just seven behind Tendulkar’s record of 49. He is also set to break many more records in the ongoing series.

Virat Kohli, the Indian captain, scored his 67th International hundred, considered to be the best Limited Over International batsman by many. Here are some of the records Virat made while batting against West Indies.

  • Virat Kohli’s 120 is now the highest ODI innings by any captain in the Caribbeans, beating Brian Lara’s 116 against Sri Lanka at Bridgetown in 2003.
