It was an innings befitting his 500th international appearance and there couldn’t have been a better opportunity to end his five-year long overseas century lull.

The last time Virat Kohli hit a ton overseas was in December 2018 in Australia, with the former India captain ending the wait of nearly five years by bringing up his 29th Test hundred on Day 2 of the second Test against West Indies in Port of Spain on Friday.

Kohli would not have asked for anything less in a match that adds him to an elite club of players who have made the rare milestone; Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, Ricky Pointing, and MS Dhoni to just name a few. He is the tenth player in the world to play 500 international games.
