Sensational Virat Kohli on Friday reached another milestone of his career during fifth and final ODI against West Indies where he surpassed batting legend Sachin Tendulkar's record of scoring most number of centuries while chasing.

It was Kohli’s 18th century in a chase, going past Tendulkar's record of 17.  

Chasing the total of 206, India hardly faced any trouble as Kohli (111 not out) and ever-consistent Ajinkya Rahane (39 off 51) shared 79 runs for the second wicket in 17.5 overs to set the platform for the comfortable win.

Fifth and final ODI was a test of character for Kohli and his men after the unexpected 11 run loss against the hosts in the low-scoring fourth ODI in Antigua.

But Kohli meant business as he anchored India’s chase with his 28th ODI century that came off 115 balls balls and was studded with 12 fours and two sixes.
