After his heroics on the first day, Indian Test skipper Virat Kohli continued his terrific form at Antigua and smashed his maiden double century to take the Indian innings past 400.The feat takes special importance in the light of Virat's debut as well happening at West Indies five years back.

The 27-year-old, who had scored 11 centuries so far in his career, waited for 41 Test matches to go past the 200-mark for his first time in his career. Kohli, who incidentally made his Test debut against West Indies at Kingston back in 2011, chose the same opposition to score his highest first-class score ever. After starting from his overnight score of 143, Kohli continued his partnership with Ravichandran Ashwin and looked in no trouble against the Windies bowlers today. Runs flowed from his blade as the batsman effortlessly took apart a hapless attack even as Ashwin provided able company at the other end with a fifty.

In characteristic Sachin fashion, Kohli slowed down in the 190s, and took his sweet time to cross the landmark, but tonight no one is complaining!

Don't think so

The Sachin - Kohli comparisons are back

Two geniuses on the same path

Broken it

Even that may not work

That hallowed moment

Kabali-Kohli. Although only one of the two has scored at the office today.

And some more Rajni

Clinical Kohli

No chance for bowlers

Kohli is No.1 everywhere

Captain leading from the front
