West Indies Wicket Keeper Joshua De Silva encourages Kohli to get his century

Trinidad: Fans continue to surround Virat Kohli even on the cricket pitch. Even the players from the opposing squad respect what Kohli has accomplished in international cricket over the years, despite the fact that many Indian cricketers idolize the legendary batter.

In the second Test of the series between India and West Indies, Kohli had an interesting conversation about his "milestones" with the West Indies wicket-keeper batsman. The way the dialogue developed gave the impression that even De Silva, the wicket-keeper for the opposing team, wanted the veteran Indian player to surpass the triple-digit score.

Only 13 runs separated Kohli from another century as he finished the opening day of play undefeated on 87. Before the first day's play came to a close, Kohli and De Silva had a somewhat interesting conversation.

In his 500th international game, Kohli recorded his first half-century as a batter. The 34-year-old would like to build on the strong start and score triple digits before the West Indies batters bat.

In Ahmedabad, against Australia, on March 12, 2023, Kohli scored his final Test century. He made 186 runs off 364 balls during the game. Virat had achieved the triple-digit score in the longest format for the previous 28 times. He would be determined to get the No. 29 on Friday and bring his total of international hundreds to 76.

Virat averages 55.17 in tests. If he goes on to add 13 more runs to his 87-run undefeated knock in the game, he would significantly improve his stats in the game's purest form.
