After a loss of form after Virat Kohli scored his maiden-double ton against West Indies, he has finally got back into run making spree. Kohli recorded his second-double ton in the first innings of the third and final Test against New Zealand at Holkar Stadium, Indore. Kohli completed his 200 in 347 balls with 18 fours and no sixes. Kohli secured his first century on Day 1 of the Indore Test since his double ton against West Indies in the first Test at Antigua. Since then, he did not even get to 50-run mark. Kohli looked good for a fifty but got out at 45 at Calcutta Test. Kohli completed his hundred off the fifth ball of 85th over. This is also the first hundred by any batsman in this series so far.
