Kohli surpasses Bradman to set new world record

Indian captain Virat Kohli set a new world record in the Test against Bangladesh here.

The 28-year-old Kohli scored his 4th Test double century on the second day of the match at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium to reach where no other batsman had gone in the history of the longer format.

Today’s double hundred by Kohli was his 4th Test double hundred in 4 successive series, which is a new world record.

Kohli hit his maiden double hundreds in the West Indies in July 2016 and followed that up with 211 in the next series against New Zealand in Indore in October 2016.

In December 2016, Kohli continued his great run with the bat by registering a career-best 235 against England at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium. And now a world record with his superb knock of 204 against the neighbours.

The previous best was by Sir Don Bradman and Rahul Dravid who both struck 3 double tons in 3 consecutive series. Kohli made his Test debut against West Indies in 2011.
