Hyderabad Test: Virat Kohli hits double century,
Hyderabad: Indian skipper Virat Kohli on Friday became the first batsman in test history to score double centuries in four successive series, when he scored 204 against Bangladesh in one-off Test match in Hyderabad. He became the second captain to score four double centuries for his country.
Kohli started the day from where he had left on Thursday, with two thumping boundaries off Taskin Ahmed. The first was an uppish slash while the second rocketed down the ground. The stand-out shot of the session came in Taskin’s next over. A good full length delivery was just firmly pushed. It looked like an on drive where all that the skipper had done was to roll the wrists.
During the course of his innings, Kohli overtook Virender Sehwag as the top scorer in a single home season for India. Sehwag had scored 1105 runs in the 2004/05.
Virat Kohli is by far the best modern-day cricketer at present, he is known for his aggressive style of batting. However there has been a tremendous transformation achieved by Kohli and now he is perhaps the most matured player in the Indian squad.
