The 24-year-old right-hander batted, continued playing from his overnight score of 75 on Day 1, with full authority and reached the three-figure mark with a massive six off Roston Chase.

Rahul took 182 balls and struck 12 fours and a six to reach his Test ton. He batted at a strike rate of 56.04.

KL Rahul was the highest run-getter for India during India's tour of Zimbabwe. He also slammed his maiden ODI century on debut and became the first batsman to achieve this feat. He not only looked compact but also scored runs at a fair clip in his innings.

India are leading the four Test series against hosts West Indies 1-0 and considering the way things are proceeding in this game, Kohli and Company are in driver's seat in this match too.
