Virat Kohli hits maiden double ton; India is 404/4 till lunch
Antigua: Virat Kohli yet again proves his mettle by hitting a superb double ton against West Indies in the first Test at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua on Friday. India collects 404/4 runs at lunch with Kohli (200*) and Ravichandran Ashwin (64*) on the crease.
Kohli becomes the first Indian Test skipper to score a double century on foreign turf.
Meanwhile, before the start of the tournament, coach Anil Kumble wanted Ashwin to play the role of a regular batsman alongside a star spinner and the Chennai lad showed his versatility today by hitting an unbeaten half ton.
Among the West Indies bowlers, leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo was the most successful with figures of 3/131 from 35 overs. Right-arm pacer Shannon Gabriel also managed to take a single wicket by conceding 56 runs in his 17 overs.
