Virat Kohli added another feather in his cap, he has become the first player to score four double tons in test series.
Indian captain Virat Kohli on Friday broke Virender Sehwag’s record of the most test runs scored by a batsman in a single home season. Now, he has become the first player to score four double tons in four successive test series. He went on to break Shewag’s record on the second day of ongoing one- off Test against Bangladesh in Hyderabad. Notably, this fourth double century has come after June last year. That is just seven months! Virat Kohli as the captain has just nailed it, and he has done it so effortlessly.
Here are some records, take a look
Virat Kohli had surpassed former India captain Sunil Gavaskar and former England captain on day one with 1075 runs as he remained unbeaten at 111. Notably, he was just 31 runs short of Sehwag’s mark, who had slammed 1105 runs in nine Tests in the home season of 2004- 05 and then finally, he went on to break that record.
So far, both the players have four hundreds to their credit but Virat Kohli still has four more tests to go against Australia before they finally conclude the test series. Kohli will play 13 more matches, which means he has a plenty of time to improve on his already remarkable record in the longest format.
Notably, what is more amazing, is that Kohli has scored these runs while leading the team which is really commendable. Now, he holds top slots among the captains scoring most runs in a home season.
Well, we are sure that more runs and records will come from Virat’s bat. Australia has already landed in India, and the match between both the countries will begin from February 23, 2017.
