Kohli 1st Indian to hit ‘100’ in Pink ball Tests

Virat Kohli became the first Indian to score a century in a Pink ball Test when he got to the 3-figure score on Day 2 of the ongoing 2nd Test against Bangladesh at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata.

Virat surpassed Ricky Ponting to grab 2nd place in the list of captains with the most Test hundreds. Kohli now has 20 hundred as captain while former South Africa captain Graeme Smith leads the pack with 25 tons.

On Friday, he had become the first Indian and world's fastest to register 5000 runs as the Test skipper.

Earlier in the day, his deputy Ajinkya Rahane also brought up a fourth-successive half-century. But he was sent back to the pavilion by Taijul Islam after playing a knock of 51 runs.
