Virat Kohli has managed to have rediscovered his Midas touch with the bat during the second One-Day International against  West Indies at the Port of Spain on Sunday. Kohli had come into bat in the very first over after opener Shikhar Dhawan was trapped in front of the wicket by pacer Sheldon Cotterell off the third delivery. The Indian skipper then stabilised the innings with his deputy Rohit Sharma.

After Rohit's dismissal, he was involved in a small partnership with Rishabh Pant. However, he got much-needed support from Shreyas Iyer as the Indian skipper continued to carry on his magnificent run. It bore fruits as Virat scored a fantastic century. This was also his 42nd ton in ODI's. 

Fans hail 'King Kohli' for his splendid knock

After the 30-year-old notched up a superb ton, the fans came forward to appreciate him. Here are some of the tweets.
