Kohli first Indian captain to score three Test doubles in a year

Star batsman Virat Kohli has gone down in the record books as the first Indian captain to score three double centuries.

He smashed a massive double century before England slumped to 182-6 at stumps on day four as India closed in on victory in the fourth Test Sunday.

It marked his third double century of 2016 in what has been a record-breaking year for the Indian skipper.

India’s talismanic Kohli had earlier blasted a double century that included 25 fours and one six during his 340-ball stay.

The 28-year-old put on a massive 241-run partnership with Yadav as England failed to take any wickets during the morning session.

Kohli removed his helmet and raised his bat to the adoring crowd as he brought up his double ton with a single off his 302nd ball of the match.

The right-hander has been the standout batsman of the year, scoring a double century against the West Indies in July before repeating the feat against New Zealand in October.

He was eventually caught out by James Anderson from Chris Woakes.
