Captain Virat Kohli led from the front with the bat, smashing an unbeaten century to put India in control on Day 1 of the first Test against the West Indies

Kohli cracked a fluent 143 not out, hitting 16 fours in his 197-ball knock to steer India to a comfortable 302/4 at stumps on the opening day at a venue named after batting legend -- the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in North Sound, Antigua.

During the course of his innings, Kohli established quite a few records. He became only the third Indian captain to score a century in the West Indies after Kapil Dev and Rahul Dravid. His innings is currently the second highest by an Indian captain.

Check out the various records set by Kohli on Day 1:
