Virat Kohli became the first batsman to score four double-centuries

India 687/6d v Bangladesh
41/1 (14 ov) Bangladesh trail by 646 runs with 9 wickets remaining in the 1st innings

Virat Kohli: four double-tons in four series.

India’s Cricket team captain Virat Kohli hits another double hundred in another series. The opposition buried under a mountain of runs. The theme first unfolded in North Sound in July 2016, then in Indore and Mumbai. On Friday in Hyderabad against a listless Bangladesh attack, Kohli became the first batsman to hit double-hundreds in four consecutive Test series. India surged to 687 for 6, before they declared, and became the first side to rack up 600-plus scores in three consecutive innings.

India’s day became sweeter when Umesh Yadav dismissed Soumya Sarkar for 15 with a 142kph ripper. Sarkar was unperturbed by the outswinger, but was done in by a full ball, which snaked in off the seam. He attempted a limp drive and Wriddhiman Saha threw himself to his right to collect the ball. India challenged the on-field not-out decision with UltraEdge picking up a thin deflection off the toe end. Tamim Iqbal and Mominul Haque, though, hung on to take Bangladesh to 41 for 1 in 14 overs at stumps.
