India vs South Africa: Virat Kohli 5th Indian to score 250 in a Test innings





Virat Kohli, who has already scripted his name in record books when he scored a record seventh double hundred of his career, became the first Indian captain to score 250 plus in a single Test inning.


Virat Kohli became only the fifth Indian batsman to score 250 in a Test innings after Virender Sehwag, Karun Nair, VVS Laxman, and Rahul Dravid on the second day of the second Test match against South Africa at the Mumbai Cricket Association Stadium in Pune.
Virat Kohli, who has already scripted his name in record books when he scored a record seventh double hundred of his career, became the first Indian captain to score 250 plus in a single Test inning.
Kohli, who didn’t have any ton to his name this year, has now become the Indian batsman with the most number of double tons to his name.
The Indian skipper reached his seventh double century in his 81st Test and in the process surpassed Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag who both had scored six double hundreds in their stellar career.

Australia legend Don Bradman tops the list of scoring most double hundreds (12), followed by Kumar Sangakkara (11), Brian Lara (9) and WR Hammond and Mahela Jayawardane who both scored seven 200s.
During the course of his inning, Kohli also went past Bradman to become the player with most 150+ scores as Test captain. While Bradman had achieved the feat eight times in his career, Kohli has now done it nine times so far.
Michael Clarke, Mahela Jayawardene, Brian Lara, and Graeme Smith are all tied at the third spot as they all achieved the milestone seven times.
This century also saw Kohli becoming the fourth-fastest player to score 26 Test hundreds. He also equaled Ricky Ponting's record of scoring 19 Test hundreds as captain.


Virat Kohli is also the only Indian to smash 40 hundred in international cricket as captain and is now just two tons away from surpassing Ponting's tally of 41 Test tons as captain with most hundreds in international cricket.
