Virat Kohli breaks Sir Don Bradman’s record


Virat Kohli scored 204 in the first innings against Bangladesh on the 2nd day of one off test match at Hyderabad. By scoring his fourth double century, he breaks the record of Sir Donald Bradman and Rahul Dravid of scoring four double centuries in consecutive series.

Sir Donald Bradman scored 3 double centuries in consecutive test series (1930-31) and this was equalled by Rahul Dravid in 2003/04 season.

This was his fourth double century as a captain in test matches. He has been in excellent form equalling Michael Clarke’s record of scoring four double centuries as skipper. With Australia coming to play four test matches, the record is likely to be broken by the stylish right-handed batsmen.

The first double century by Virat Kohli was against West Indies as full-fledged captain. He scored 200 and played one of the best knocks in test matches. That knock helped India register a big total and won that match by an innings.

The second double century came against New Zealand in the third test match at Indore in October. He played a match winning knock of 211 which helped India post a big total. India won that match by an innings.

The third double century of Virat Kohli came during the fourth test match in Mumbai. England scored 400 but Virat Kohli’s 235 helped India neutralise that. India won that match by an innings to take the series.
