Indian captain Virat Kohli continued his unbelievable record-breaking spree and surpassed the legendary Sir Donald Bradman and Rahul Dravid by becoming the first batsman to score double hundreds in four successive Test series.

Kohli’s double tons came in the series against the West Indies, New Zealand, England and now Bangladesh, which is in India for a one-off Test. Bradman and Dravid had achieved the feat in three successive series.

Kohli hit his maiden double hundred (200) at North Sound against the West Indies in July last year followed by 211 against New Zealand at Indore in October.

This was followed by his current career-best score of 235 against England in Mumbai in December and now 204 against Bangladesh.
