Virat Kohli on Sunday made history as he turned into first ever Indian Captain to score three double centuries.
The 28-year-old’s double century against England on the fourth day of the fourth Test at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai was more than only a tasteful thump. It was verification of his sheer class and quality. Most importantly, it proved, undisputedly, who is the best batsman on the planet right now.
All the opposition, in the state of Joe Root, David Warner, Steve Smith and Kane Williamson can now kick back and appreciate the show with whatever remains of us. This is a champion we are finding in real life.
Three double centuries as captain around the same time – in the West Indies, against New Zealand at home and now this – is something astounding. He is the main Indian and the fifth batsman in general to score three double tons in a logbook year.
Yet, this one he will treasure, given his poor normal 13.40 against England before this arrangement. That as well in the event that it closes the arrangement for his side. His score of 235 is likewise the most elevated by an Indian captain, outperforming Dhoni’s 224 versus Australia in 2013.
Kohli crossed the normal of 50, a characterized point of reference in a conceivably extraordinary vocation, on Saturday evening. Presently, he will proceed in the huge class.
Tiger Pataudi, Sunil Gavaskar, Sachin Tendulkar and MS Dhoni have all scored a double ton each as India commanders. At 28, Kohli has three and he’s recently beginning.
