Virat Kohli on a spree of breaking all records.

Virat Kohli on a spree of breaking all records. Virat Kohli on a spree of breaking all records.

On Friday, the run machine Virat Kohli was on song on the second day of the test between South Africa.  The Indian captain who has breaking records this year in all formats of the game, broke yet another record when he scored a double century on the second day of the second test at Pune.

Kohli has become the first Indian captain to hit a double century against South Africa taking his total tally of test double centuries to 7, surpassing Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag who have scored 6 double centuries each.

The Indian skipper on his way to his double hundred registered his 26th test century which set the record for the fastest batsman to score 40 International hundreds as captain, being second to Ricky Ponting who has scored 41 centuries and other established cricketers like Graeme Smith, Steve Smith and Alan Border.

Also this being his 50th test as a captain of the Indian team, Kohli is the 4th ever captain to score a century in his 50th game at the helm, something quite remarkable considering the form that he is in.

Virat also surpassed Sunil Gavaskar scoring the most test runs for an Indian captain.

Considering the form Virat is in, breaking records and creating milestones has become a natural part of his game and we hope he continues to keep this form and adding more feathers to his illustrious cap.
