India captain Virat Kohli smashed a record-breaking seventh double century on Day 2 of the second Test against South Africa in Pune.
He not only surpassed Sachin Tendulkar, Ricky Ponting, Younis Khan, Javed Miandad, Virender Sehwag, and Marvan Atapattu, who had scored six double tons each in Test cricket but also powered India to a mammoth total – 601/5.

While Virat’s wife Anushka Sharma couldn’t keep calm and took to Instagram to showcase her love for her hubby, other B-town celebs namely Varun Dhawan, Saiyami Kher and Arjun Kapoor too praised the Indian skipper for his sensational performance.
Playing his 81st Test, Kohli also reached the milestone of 7000 career runs on Friday, moving past Sir Don Bradman’s iconic figure of 6996 runs that came in 52 Tests.
Virat CENTURY Kohli has now become Virat double century Kohli. Just unstoppable. Would like to put him in a time machine & watch him play Marshal, Thomson, Lillie, Akram, McGrath, more fun..because he’s made this bowling look like a school bowling attack. #INDvSA #ViratKohli
