Virat Kohli Double Centuries

Star Indian batter Virat Kohli has been tremendous in the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup in India. The 35-year-old is among the leading run scorers of the tournament with 543 runs from eight matches played so far at an average of 108.60 along with four half-centuries and two centuries. Kohli has been a consistent scorer for India in the ongoing tournament and has been finishing games for his team. He recently achieved the milestone of 49 ODI centuries after his unbeaten 101 runs in a match against South Africa on 5th November at Eden Gardens in Kolkata. He equalized the record of most centuries in the 50-over format with the Indian cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar. However, he also became the first batter to score 50 centuries in limited-overs cricket as he also has scored a ton in T20Is.

With 79 centuries across formats, Virat Kohli is just behind Sachin Tendulkar in the list of players with the most centuries in International cricket. Tendulkar has amassed a record 100 centuries across formats while Kohli is 21 hundreds away from surpassing the Indian legend. 

With 49 centuries in ODI, and one in T20I, Kohli has also amassed 27 centuries in Test cricket including seven double tons. He scored his first double-hundred against West Indies at North Sound in July 2016. Afterward, he scored a double ton in every consecutive series against New Zealand, England, and Bangladesh respectively. His highest score remains at an unbeaten 254 runs against South Africa in Pune in October 2019. Kohli has scored the most number of double tons in a Test by an Indian batter.
