Virat Kohli has a staggering record against West Indies and it’ll be a great opportunity for him to regain his full form and get back to his best. The batter in Carribean conditions has looked good as well and it’s fair to say that he will hold key for India in this series.
Talking about his favourite moment in West Indies Virat Kohli told Star Sports: “My favourite memory in West Indies is scoring my first double Hundred in Tests in front of Sir Vivian Richards, that was very special, then he congratulated me – it can’t get any better than that”.
