Virat Kohli, the record breaking run machine, added more milestones to his name on the second day of the one-off Test against Bangladesh as the right handed batsman scored his fourth double hundred and third as a captain.

He became the first batsman to score a double hundred in four consecutive series. He just took 92 innings to script another record to his name and by doing so his latest record sees him join the likes of Michael Clark, Sunil Gavaskar, Greg Chappell, Brendon McCullum and Hashim Amla.
