Kohli keeps on creating history

Indian skipper Virat Kohli is in form of his life and is scoring runs for fun. After scoring a hundred in the first Test against Sri Lanka to crawl India back into the game, he has now taken India to the front foot in the 2nd Test after scoring a double century.

India declared in their first innings after scoring a mammoth score of 610 runs with Kohli making 213 runs all alone. Murai Vijay and Pujara also scored centuries.

When some batsman lose their form due to captaincy pressure, Kohli is on another level when it comes to dealing with pressure and his stats says it all. After becoming the Test Captain, he has scored five double centuries.

Few months ago, Kohli also made history after scoring double century against Bangladesh as he became the first captain in the history of Test cricket to score four double centuries in four conecutive series. 

The list of Kohli making records doesn’t end here. The Indian skipper also made history  when he reached hundred against Sri Lanka today. As a captain, he has crossed 50+ 16 times and scored 12 hundreds out of it. He scored centuries in 75% of the matches.  No one has better conversion rate than Kohli now and also no Indian Captain has 12 Test hundreds.

This was also Kohli’s 10th hundred today which is most by any captain in a calendar year. Australia’s Ricky Ponting and South Africa’s Graeme Smith had 9 Test hundreds.

As fast as time is going, Kohli is keeping on making history and the calibre Indian skipper has, he is set to make history and keep breaking records in the upcoming years.
