Virat Kohli has made it a habit of scoring double-centuries. He did so at Nagpur and continued his stellar show at his home ground Delhi, against Sri Lanka. Kohli became the second Indian batsman to score consecutive double-centuries after Vinod Kambli. As a captain, he holds the number of most double-hundreds. Brian Lara had five as captain.

As soon as he slammed his sixth Test double-century, VVS Laxman, Jimmy Neesham, Harbhajan Singh, Mohammad Kaif, Harsha Bhogle and likes could not stop heaping praise on the Indian captain.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kohli also completed 500 runs the ongoing series, becoming only the second Indian, after Sunil Gavaskar, to score these many runs in a series comprising of three or more Tests.
