On the second day of the first Test match, Kohli also became the first Indian Test skipper to smash a double ton on a foreign soil.
Mansoor Ali Pataudi, Sunil Gavaskar, Sachin Tendulkar and MS Dhoni are the only batsmen to have hammered a double ton as Indian skippers.
The Delhi-lad completed incredible milestone in his 43rd Test match. While Sachin Tendulkar scored his first Test double hundred in his 71st match.
Here's how Twitterati hailed Virat Kohli's yet another incredible milestone:

The first double has taken time coming but there is little doubt there are many more on the way #Kohli— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) July 22, 2016
Fair to say... 2016 is to Virat Kohli what 2006 was to Ricky Ponting... simply outstanding! https://t.co/HYxeNJwKbS— Navneet Mundhra (@navneet_mundhra) July 22, 2016
Virat Kohli before 2016:— Broken Cricket (@BrokenCricket) July 22, 2016
No T20 Century

Four T20 Centuries
Scored First Test Double Century
It a surprise that no Indian captain since 1932 ie in 84 years, spanning 247 Tests has managed to make 200+ in an away Test match!#WIvInd— Mohandas Menon (@mohanstatsman) July 22, 2016
