Virat Kohli smashes his maiden double hundred: Twitter goes berserk

Soon a day will come when Virat Kohli scoring hundreds will stop making news. Hasn’t it become a regular occurrence? Cricket has rarely seen such consistent players but this definitely is something newsworthy. On Friday, Kohli not only scored his first double ton in Test cricket but also his first in First-Class cricket eclipsing his previous best of 197. Kohli struck 24 boundaries and to reach the magic mark, he flicked towards the mid-wicket region.

Kohli, batting on 143 overnight, reached to the milestone before lunch on Day 2. The fifth wicket partnership in excess of 150 between Kohli and Ravichandran Ashwin put India in a commanding position. Ashwin too brought up his seventh fifty in Test cricket and looked set for a century. Also Read: Virat Kohli, milestones and bond with West Indies
