India Vs Bangladesh, Hyderabad Test, Day 2: Virat Kohli declares innings at 687/6

Skipper Virat Kohli slammed another brilliant double hundred to surpass Sir Don Bradman's record by achieving record fourth 200 in 4 successive series.

 Hyderabad, Feb 10: Another brilliant double hundred from skipper Virat Kohli and a shining century from Wriddhiman Saha enabled hosts India declared their first innings at 687/6 against Bangladesh on second day of the one-off Test at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium here on Friday (Feb 10).

 Earlier, resuming the day at a personal score of 111, Kohli completed his career's fourth double hundred immediately after lunch to become first Indian skipper to hit four double tons.

 Unbeaten on 191 till the lunch session, Kohli quickly completed his fourth double ton as he surpassed the record set by Australian legend Don Bradman (1930-32) and compatriot Rahul Dravid (2003-4). Prior to this one-off Test, Kohli's double tons were 200 against the West Indies away in July, 211 vs New Zealand at home in October and 235 against England in December. He fell after being dismissed with a leg before decision by left-arm spinner Taijul Islam. His innings was studded with 24 fours out of the 246 deliveries he faced. The wicket, however, didn't come as a relief for the visitors as Saha and Ravichandran Ashwin punished them with a quickfire stand of 74 runs in 15.2 overs. With the team pushing for a huge score before the declaration, Ashwin made most of the occasion by scoring 34 runs in 45 deliveries. Read more at:
