Virat Kohli quickest to 24th Test century after Bradman

Kohli, who was on 72 overnight, hit a four off Devendra Bishoo to bring up his 100 in the first Test in Rajkot.

India captain Virat Kohli became the quickest batsman to reach 24 Test centuries after the great Donald Bradman early on day two against the West Indies on Friday.

Kohli, who was on 72 overnight, hit a four off Devendra Bishoo to bring up his 100 in the first Test in Rajkot.

The Indian skipper also surpassed Australia’s Steve Smith to go second in the list of centurions among active players, behind South Africa’s Hashim Amla on 28.

Smith, who is serving a one-year ball tampering ban, has 23 centuries in 64 Tests.

Kohli reached his 24th century in his 123rd innings, while Australia’s Bradman took just 66 knocks to achieve the same feat.

It was the second century of the Indian innings after 18-year-old opener Prithvi Shaw made 134 on day one to become India’s youngest batsman to score a century on debut.

Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja also completed his century to add more agony to West Indies.
