Kohli passed a significant milestone on Wednesday during India’s 44-run series-clinching win over West Indies in the 2nd ODI in Ahmedabad, joining the likes of Sachin Tendulkar and MS Dhoni on an exclusive list. Kohli’s most recent achievement is that he has played 100 One-Day Internationals (ODIs) at home. The former India captain reached the landmark figure while representing the team against the West Indies in the second One-Day International on Wednesday.
In the process, Kohli became only the fifth Indian cricketer to play 100 One-Day Internationals (ODIs) at home. Tendulkar, who played 164 One-Day Internationals on Indian soil, tops the list.

Dhoni is ranked second on the list, having played in 127 One-Day Internationals (ODIs) in India. He is followed by Mohammad Azharuddin, who played 113 One-Day Internationals (ODIs) in India, and Yuvraj Singh, who played 108.
Meanwhile, in India’s second One-Day International (ODI) victory over the West Indies on Wednesday, Prasidh Krishna shone with the ball.
The pacer finished with figures of 4/12 in nine overs to help India win.
West Indies lost opener Brandon King (18) and Darren Bravo (1) early in their chase of a modest 238 runs, with India pacer Prasidh Kumar dismissing both batsmen.
Shai Hope (27) and Shamarh Brooks (44) tried to rally the innings but could only add 14 runs before Hope holed out to Suryakumar at long-on off Yuzvendra Chahal (1/45).
At 52/3, the visitors were reeling. Prasidh was on a killing spree, and rival captain Nicholas Pooran (9) became his third victim. West Indies lost half of its team for 76 runs.
It was only a matter of time from here on out. Brooks and Akeal Hosein (34), on the other hand, postponed the inevitable. Odean Smith (24) gave the Windies hope, but he, too, fell.
Prasidh brought the game to a close by dismissing Kemar Roach.
