India skipper Virat Kohli has scored his 12th century during the first day s play of the first Test between India and West Indies at Antigua. Kohli has looked in excellent form right from the first delivery. He put on 105 for the third wicket with Shikhar Dhawan to put India in a commanding position. Dhawan was however dismissed for 84, off the final ball before tea. Kohli during his innings also went past the 3,000-run mark. He needed just six runs before the start of the match and achieved it with ease.
