Team India’s ‘Milestone Man’ Virat Kohli on Saturday became the first captain in cricket history to hit three successive hundreds in a three-Test series.
Kohli also completed his individual 5000 runs in the longest version of the game.
While many captains have had three or four Test tons in a five-match series, it is a rarity that a batsman has scored three consecutive tons in a three-match series.

Kohli now has 11 international centuries in a season – one less than batting legend Sachin Tendulkar‘s 12.
The Indian captain scored 104 not out in Kolkata followed by 213 in Nagpur before completing his hat-trick with his 20th Test hundred in his 63rd game here.
Incidentally, this is also Kohli’s first ever Test hundred at the Feroz Shah Kotla.
Fans across the world wished the Indian captain on completing another century in international cricket.
Meanwhile, Bollywood actress Shraddha Kapoor who regularly follows Team India’s matches was all-over the moon while watching Kohli’s innings.
Shraddha also posted a video of the moment when Kohli completed his 20th Test century.
