With 12 fifties to his credit, Kohli has achieved another landmark of having the high conversion rate of over 50 only after the legendary Bradman and George Headley. It was a welcome return of Virat to big scores which had been eluding him after West Indies tour

Indore: Virat Kohli who hit a masterly 211 against New Zealand at Holkar stadium, Indore, became the first Indian cricket captain to score two double tons as skipper.

Incidentally, this was his second double century in this year, last big innings also being a double century against West Indies in Antigua in July last.

Hitting his 13th 100 plus score in his 48th test match, Virat's chanceless innings enabled India to post a mammoth total of 557 for 5 declared in third and final test match of India-New Zealand series.

With 12 fifties to his credit, Kohli has achieved another landmark of having the high conversion rate of over 50 only after the legendary Bradman and George Headley. It was a welcome return of Virat to big scores which had been eluding him after West Indies tour.
