With that slam on a warm sunny morning of February 10, Kohli also surpassed the record set by cricket legend Sir Don Bradman as well as that of Rahul Dravid, who scored three double tons in three successive matches.

That is not all. Kohli also equals Sir Don, South African Graeme Smith and Australian Michael Clark as the skippers with four doubles tons in Tests.

This brings Kohli one short of a Test double ton record as a skipper held by West Indian great Brian Lara.

Kohli took two Test matches less than Bradman to score a similar feat.

Kohli’s knock took him past Virender Sehwag’s record for most runs in a home season. While Sehwag had scored 1105 runs in 2004-05 season, Kohli has scored 1168 in this season.

 

Kohli is India’s fastest run machine having shattered many records in all formats of the game.

The maverick Indian batsman took just 239 balls to reach his double ton. He slammed 24 fours in his knock of 204 before falling to Taijul Islam.

His three previous double centuries were 200 against West Indies in July, 211 against New Zealand at Indore, and 235 against England at Mumbai.



Praises are coming in for him on Twitter:

 

Including this truly remarkable one from Pakistan:
