Watch! That 'Virat Kohli' moment that will become a part of Indian cricket folklore, soon

The moment when Virat Kohli got to his double hundred and the crowd gave burst out in a rapturous applause.

Records, runs and the ‘rate at which’, arguably he knows it better than the rest. The three ‘R’s’! Virat Kohli by getting to double hundred today has floored umpteen records.

So, here is living the moment that will be re-winded over and over again in times to come.

Like Sachin Tendulkar’s 200 in ODI’s, when he squeezed a wide yorker to clinch a single and become the first player on the planet to get to 200 in limited overs format. Well, have you forgotten that moment, I doubt!

Also like when Kumble got his ten-fer getting Wasim Akram caught at forward short leg, like Sachin’s 200-moment this too, seventeen years ago is now a part of the Indian folklore.

We feel the next generation will be in awe to see Virat Kohli breeze past Sir Donald Bradman’s record of four double hundreds in four consecutive Test series. Such things happen once-in-a-decade.

Taijul, who finally got rid of Virat was bowling, the Indian skipper was stranded on 199, when the ball was tossed up invitingly outside off, Kohli got a big stride forward and was looking to launch it over mid-off, miscued it but has enough to clear the infield, couple of bounces and over the ropes.

Kohli’s arms go up in the air in celebration, as the crowd keep on applauding his maverick feat. He looks happy but not over joyed, like pumping his fists in the air. This is exactly what has changed in Kohli, from two years back.
