Indian captain Virat Kohli and double hundreds seem to be going hand in hand in the last two seasons. After scoring 3 double hundreds in 2016. he has now scored 3 in 2017.
Indian skipper Virat Kohli just crossed another milestone. Just a day after becoming the first Indian captain to hit a hat-trick of hundreds in a three-Test series, the legendary cricketer on Sunday became the first player to score six double centuries as captain.
India skipper Virat Kohli put in a performance which many would consider as brilliant, but by his standards, it is probably safe to say a double century is above average.
The Indian skipper scored 200 off 238 balls on the second day of the ongoing Test against Sri Lanka. Kohli, playing in his 63rd Test, took 238 deliveries to complete his second consecutive double hundred. This is the second double century on the trot for the Indian captain.
this is also Kohli’s first ever Test hundred at the Feroz Shah Kotla. His century off 110 balls and the half-century off 52 balls were his individual fastest landmarks in this format.
Kohli has just surpassed the legendary Brian Lara and one can rest assure the gap between him and the former West Indian captain is bound to increase in due course of time.
