Virat Kohli scores yet another double, fourth in seven months

He was consumed soon, though, by Taijul Islam lbw but not before he saw India crossing 500 and looked in commanding position in the match. It was sheer genius of Virat that he managed four 200 plus scores since July 2016 and became the first batsman to score four double tons in consecutive series

Hyederabad: The dream run of Indian skipper Virat Kohli continues as he scored his fourth double hundred in seven months in one-off cricket Test match against Bangladesh here on Friday.

He also became the highest run scorer in a home season unseating his former colleague Virendra Sehwag. He has now 15 test tons including four score of 200 plus making him the most prolific run-getter for India in recent times.

Virat was unbeaten at 111 overnight before he unleashed a flurry of strokes on 2nd morning of the Test match and was not out at 191 at lunch. Immediately after lunch , he completed his double century.

He was consumed soon, though, by Taijul Islam lbw but not before he saw India crossing 500 and looked in commanding position in the match. It was sheer genius of Virat that he managed four 200 plus scores since July 2016 and became the first batsman to score four double tons in consecutive series.

Virat scored 204 off only 246 balls studded with 24 fours while also being involved in 222-run fourth wicket partnership with Ajinkya Rahane who provided him an bale support before getting out at an expremely well- made 82 runs coming back to side after injury.
