India captain Virat Kohli slammed his 24th Test century against Windies at Rajkot and now has the chance of equalling Pakistan legend Inzamam ul Haq’s record of 25 Test centuries. The 29-year-old India captain has played 72 Tests amassing 6286 runs at an average of 54.66, while Inzy scored 8830 in 120 Tests at an average of 49.60. Kohli stands 21st in the rick list of centurions where former Indian batting legend Sachin Tendulkar is at the top of the tree with 51 Test centuries to his name. Tendulkar has scored 15921 runs in 200 Tests at an average of 53.78.Also Read - T20 WC: Shoaib Akhtar Trolls Harbhajan Singh After Pakistan Beat Virat Kohli's India in Dubai
