The Indian skipper Virat Kohli scored his seventh double century while playing in the second Test match at Pune against South Africa. The right-hander batted at the top of his game to bring up his double century. Kohli completed his 26th century earlier in the day and then went on to make a daddy hundred.  Thus, Kohli overtook Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag’s tally of double centuries as both of them had scored six double tons.

The right-hander has played only 138 innings and he has been the epitome of consistency. In fact, Kohli had not got a century in the last 12 innings and ended his drought in style. The right-hander had scored his last Test century against Australia in Perth in 2018.

Kohli is on song.

Kohli had a quiet tour to the West Indies as per his standards and could only score 20 and unbeaten 31 runs in the first Test match at Visakhapatnam.

Meanwhile, Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane added a gargantuan partnership of 178 runs for the fourth wicket partnership. Both the batsmen played with guile and gave no chance to the Proteas. The Indian vice-captain gave great support to his skipper as he scored a fine knock of 59 runs.
