He comes, he scores, he breaks records and this cycle never ends for Virat Kohli. The Indian Test captain recorded his fourth double century in four successive Test series becoming the first man on the planet to do so. Kohli registered 204 from 246 balls before falling to Bangaladesh Taijul Islam on Day 2 of the one-off Test in Hyderabad today.
Kohli broke the record jointly held by Don Bradman and Rahul Dravid, both of whom had three scores of 200-plus in three successive Test series in their career.
The right hander has been in scintillating form as captain of the Test side, having scored four Test centuries, second most by an Indian skipper.
He hit 24 fours in his knock which was the second best by any captain in an innings against Bangladesh behind only Graeme Smith’s 232 at Chittagong.
Earlier, Kohli broke Sehwag’s record of registering most Test runs in an Indian home season.
Virat Kohli become first ever player to score four double centuries in four consecutive series in Test Cricket history..🙏
