Virat Kohli became the Indian with most double hundreds by scoring a 200+ score for the 7th time today. In the process, he broke the record previously held by Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag.
Playing the second Test against South Africa in Pune, Kohli is unbeaten at 230* as we report this news.
The landmarks flow for Virat Kohli. Like a champion batsman he breaks a 10 innings century drought with a double. And, something that is becoming noteworthy for him, without a single six! Most doubles by an Indian now and the small matter of 7000 test runs.— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) October 11, 2019
