Rajkot (Gujarat) [India], Oct 5 (ANI): Indian skipper Virat Kohli struck his 24th Test century to help the home side put up a mammoth total of 506 runs at the loss of five wickets till lunch on Day Two of the opening Test against West Indies here at the Saurashtra Cricket Stadium on Friday.
Resuming at yesterday's score of 364, Kohli continued his rich vein of form as he not only notched up yet another hundred, off 184 balls, but also shared a crucial partnership of 133 runs with Rishabh Pant (92) for the fifth wicket to help India cross the 500-run mark.
At the time of filing of this report, Kohli and Jadeja were batting at the crease on their respective scores of 120 and 22.
Yesterday, Indian batsman Prithvi Shaw stepped into the world of international cricket in style as he smashed a blistering century in his debut Test against the Caribbean side.
The 18-year-old, who is the youngest Indian to make his debut for India since Sachin Tendulkar, took just 99 balls to reach the three-figure mark, which also included 14 boundaries.
The ongoing two-match Test series against West Indies is a part of India's preparation ahead of the 2019 International Cricket Council (ICC) World Cup. (ANI)
