India vs Bangladesh 2017: Virat Kohli’s fourth double hundred creates world record

vk

India’s captain and ace batsman Virat Kohli broke Sir Don Bradman and Rahul Dravid’s record of scoring double hundreds in 3 consecutive series. Before Virat Kohli’s fourth double hundred, which he scored against Bangladesh in Hyderabad, he was levelled with Sir Don Bradman and Rahul Dravid.

In the first innings of the ongoing one-off Test against Bangladesh, Virat Kohli scored his fourth double hundred in consecutive and became the first batsman in cricket history to do so. Kohli batted with authority and played an almost flawless innings. It was a good batting wicket and Kohli made the most of it, thanks to his astute shot selection.

No. Name Double centuries Season
1. Virat Kohli 4* 2016/17
2. Sir Don Bradman 3 1930
3. Rahul Dravid 3 2003/04

 

Kohli started this unbelievable steak of scoring double hundreds in consecutive series, against West Indies in Caribbean. He scored the first double hundred of his Test career against West Indies in Antigua. His second double hundred came in the third Test of the home series against New Zealand at Indore, in which he scored 211 runs in the first innings. He then scored his third double hundred against England at Wankhede stadium. Kohli rated his double hundred as one of the most “satisfying” knocks of his Test career so far.
