With this century, the India skipper, who scored his 28th overall is also the batsman with the third highest number of centuries in ODI cricket, behind Tendulkar (49) and Ricky Ponting (30).
Virat Kohli, who regarded as one of the best batsmen in the world, leaves batting god Sachin Tendulkar behind with record 28th ODI ton against West Indies.
Although former, captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni is often hailed as a great finisher, current India captain Virat Kohli has the stats on his side to lay stake to that claim, as he surpassed legendary Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar’s record of scoring the most number of centuries in ODI cricket, batting second.
Sachin Tendulkar had earlier held the record of scoring most centuries, while chasing, with 17 tons under his belt.
Virat Kohli came back strongly after two poor innings with an unbeaten 111 in the fifth ODI against West Indies, which in turn became his 18th century while batting second.
And his ton helped India win the ODI series against West Indies, as well as the series 3-1.
Interestingly, Sachin took as many as 232 ODI innings to score 17 tons, while chasing, while Virat Kohli took just 102 innings.
