Kohli reached the mark on Day 2 of the 4th Test at Rose Bowl, Southampton. The visitors currently trail the five-match series 1-2, however, after an impressive start on the first day at Southampton, India are in the driving seat after bowling out England for 246 on the first day itself. It gives the visitors ample time to build on and work their way through in the penultimate Test.
Earlier, Kohli reclaimed the No.1 Test batsman spot after scoring his 23 Test century at Trent Bridge, Nottingham.
