The Indian skipper mauled the West Indian bowlers to reach to his 24th test hundred, breaking many records in the process. Any ways, breaking records is like breakfast for Kohli, who does it at will.On Day two of the first Test against the West Indies at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot, the Virat run-machine recahed his 100 in just 184 balls, beating Sachin Tendulkar's.With his latest hundred he can truly claim to be Don Bradman of Asia. He is just behind Bradman in the list of fastest batters to complete 24 test tons. Kohli took 123 innings to achieve the feat, whereas Bradman took 66 innings.    Kohli is anow ahead of God of Cricket Sachin Tendulkar, who took 125 innings to score 24 Test tons, and is third on the list. The great sunil Gavaskar had taken 128 innings to score 24 centuries. This was Kohli's just second century against the West Indies.24 Test Hundreds: The fastest OnesDon Bradman (Australia) - 66 inningsVirat Kohli (India) - 123 inningsSachin Tendulkar (India) – 125 inningsSunil Gavaskar (India) – 128 inningsThat's not all.
