In their tour of the West Indies, the Indian Captain managed to put up impressive numbers.

Virat Kohli was his usual self in the second ODI of their tour of West Indies. He scored his 42nd ODI century after failing to achieve a similar feat during the World Cup. He scored 120 runs off just 125 balls which helped India reach a high score.

His celebration after reaching the century mark was proof that he wanted to score a century really badly. During the post-match press conference, Bhuvneshwar Kumar said that Kohli was “itching to make a mark on the field and he was able to do it nonchalantly.” Kohli wasn’t the only player to have scored a big amount of points; Shreyas Iyer was also able to score 71 runs.

“From Virat’s expression, you can make out that how badly wanted a hundred. It’s not like he was out of form, it was just that he was getting dismissed in the 70s or 80s in the World Cup. The wicket was not easy, when he came back after getting dismissed, he said the wicket is not that easy,” said Bhuvneshwar.

He also had a 4/31 figure in over eight overs. When asked about his performance, he responded, “I was not thinking about the result. We knew if we get one-two wickets, we will be back in the game. I just planned on bowling economically and bowling more dot balls.”

The India tour of West Indies will be playing their third and final ODI match before moving on to the Test format. To find out the odds for their and all other teams’ upcoming matches, visit Betwala’s site.
