Virat Kohli is only behind Graham Gooch in terms of hitting most fours in a home season as captain.

Virat Kohli closed in on yet another double-century on Friday as he combined with Ajinkya Rahane to plunder a wilting Bangladesh attack on the second day of the one-off Test in Hyderabad. Kohli (204) and Rahane (82) put on 222 runs for the fourth wicket to help take India reach 477 for 4 at lunch, and more after lunch. The hosts had started the day on 356 for 3. This was Kohli s fourth double-hundred, all of which have come since July in four different series as he set numerous records in the process. After this record-breaking knock, we present some statistical highlights.

Kohli scored his 4th double-ton, all of which have come against different teams. The Indian record is of 5 double-tons against different teams, held by Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid. The overall record is of 6, by Kumar Sangakkara.

Kohli became the 1st Indian captain and 3rd overall to score a double-hundred against Bangladesh after Stephen Fleming (202 in 2004-05) and Graeme Smith (232 in 2007-08). Kohli also became the 2nd Indian to score a double-ton against Bangladesh after Tendulkar (248* in 2004-05). He also became the 20th batsman to do so against Bangladesh and 8th at home.

Kohli has now joint 2nd-most double tons by an age of 28. Sangakkara and Smith had also scored 4 each at this age. Don Bradman still holds the record with an astonishing 10. As captain, Kohli now has most double-tons at 28. He broke Smith s record of 3.

With 1,168 runs in 2016-17, Kohli has now 2nd-most runs in a season at No. 4 after Jacques Kallis (1,227 in 2007-08).

Kohli became the 5th Indian batsman to score 4 or more double-tons after Virender Sehwag (6), Tendulkar (6), Dravid (5) and Sunil Gavaskar (4).

Kohli is also the 5th captain to score 4 or more double-tons after Brian Lara (5), Bradman, Michael Clarke and Smith (4 each). No other Indian captain has even scored 2.

Kohli became the 1st player to score double-tons in 4 consecutive series against West Indies, New Zealand, England and Bangladesh. He went past Bradman and Dravid s record of 3.

Kohli equalled Bradman and Dravid s record of 3 double-hundreds in single season. Bradman did in 1930 (all three came in the same series, in less than three weeks!), while Dravid did it in 2003-04 against New Zealand, Australia and Pakistan. While Bradman s double-tons all came overseas (in England), two of Dravid’s came overseas and one at home. In other words, Kohli became the 1st batsman to score 3 home double-tons in the same season.

This was also Kohli’s 4th 150 in this season. He equalled Sehwag s Indian record, set in 2004-05. As captain, Kohli now has most 150s in a season, which was jointly held by Bradman, Garry Sobers, David Gower, Steve Waugh, Lara and Clarke.

This was Kohli s 5th 150 as captain, the joint-most by an Indian captain. He is at par with Gavaskar and Mohammad Azharuddin.

Kohli has scored 1,168 runs this season, the most by any batsman at home, 4th-most by a captain and 13th-most by any player. Kohli broke Sehwag s record of 1,105 runs today. The record for most runs as captain and played is 1,483 runs by Ponting in 2005-06.

Kohli hit 24 boundaries in his innings. He now has hit 130 fours in this season, which is a new Indian record as captain. The previous record of 119 fours in a season by an Indian captain was held by Gavaskar in 1979-80. Overall, Kohli is currently at 7th spot in this list after Lara (164 in 2003-04), Ponting (155 in 2005-06), Smith (150 in 2007-08), Clarke (139 in 2012-13, 135 in 2011-12) and Gooch (131 in 1990).

Kohli is only behind Gooch in terms of hitting most fours in a home season as captain. He needs 2 fours to go past Gooch, and has the entire Australia series in hand.

Kohli s knock of 204 runs came at the strike-rate of 82.9, the second-best by an Indian captain during a double-hundred (after MS Dhoni s 224 at 84.5 against Australia in 2012-13). Overall, Kohli s strike-rate is at 5th on the list, after by Brendon McCullum (202 at 107.4 in 2014-15), Clarke (230 in 89.5 in 2012-13), Dhoni (mentioned above) and Smith (232 at 83.8 in 2007-08).
