India opening batsman KL Rahul has scored his third Test ton on Day 2 of the second Test against West Indies at Kingston. This is Rahul s first century against West Indies and all three of his centuries have come outside India. His first came in his second Test in Australia. He also struck a century in Sri Lanka in August 2015. Rahul has always scored a century once he goes past his fifty. He is replacing Murali Vijay in this match as Vijay had picked up a thumb injury in the first Test. Rahul has made his opportunity count and it will be difficult to drop him for the next Test, even if Vijay is declared fit. FULL CRICKET SCORECARD: India vs West Indies 2016, 2nd Test at Kingston
