Another feat: Virat Kohli becomes first captain to score three double tons in a season

With this double ton, he equalled Sunil Gavaskar's record who has four double centuries to his name.

The Indian Test captain has made it a habit, a habit that is highly enviable. He becomes the first skipper to slam three double hundreds as a captain in one season. What a feat!

He has been in this kind of form for some time now. Some websites are even considering hiring a stats person, just to keep a tab of the records Virat breaks every time he walks out to bat.

With this double ton against Bangladesh, he also makes it to the elite list of players who have centuries against all Test playing nations. Simply superb!

He just takes the ‘wow’ element to the next degree, literally!

This double was also achieved at a great pace, he scored 204 off 246 balls at a blistering strike rate (Considering it is a Test) of 82.92. His innings was studded with 24 boundaries, before finally getting out to a beautiful straighter ball from Taijul Islam.

With this double ton, he also equals Sunil Gavaskar, who has four double centuries to his name. The highest double tons by an Indian is led by Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag who have six-a-piece.

Virat also surpasses Bradman (1930), Dravid (2003-04) who had three double hundreds in three consecutive Test series. He had pipped them by doing it in four consecutive Test series.

Virat finds himself one shy of Brian Lara’s world record of five double tons as a captain.

He has also scored most runs by a batsman in a home season with 1108* runs surpassing Virender Sehwag’s 1105.
