Sachin Tendulkar praises Virat Kohli after yet another double ton

Former Indian Batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar on Saturday has praised the inform batsman Virat Kohli after the Indian captain slammed a record-breaking double century in the one-off Test against Bangladesh here.

This was Kohli's fourth double ton in four successive Test series, surpassing the legendary Donald Bradman and Rahul Dravid, who had three centuries in three rubbers.

Kohli's marathon innings, which came off 246 deliveries, included 24 fours.

He scored 200 against the West Indies in Antigua, 211 against New Zealand in Indore, and 235 against England in Mumbai, all in 2016.

In praise of the in-form skipper, Tendulkar wrote on his twitter handle, "The sweet spot on your bat speaks about the awesome form you are in, don't need scoreboards. May god always keep your bat like that."

Kohli also broke Virender Sehwag's long-standing record of most Test runs scored by a batsman in a single home season. He joined an elite list which comprises Bradman, Michael Clarke, Graeme Smith -- all these captains have scored four double hundreds in Test cricket. The list is headed by Brian Lara.
