Bangladesh vs Windies 1st Test: Bangladesh top order batsman Mominul Haque joined Indian captain to a milestone he would cherish. Haque smashed a century in the ongoing first Test against Windies to register the most number of tons in 2018 in Tests along with Kohli. Kohli has hit four hundred in 17 innings, whereas Haque has reached that mark in merely 13 innings. Surprisingly, no other batsman has more than two tons in the longest format.

Mominul also has eight centuries at home without a century in any other country, which also is a record. No other batsman has more Test centuries at home without an away ton, a stat he would like to rectify soon.
