Virat Kohli goes for the jugular and declares before the end of the second day and the tired South Africans lose three quick wickets. Kohli, likely, sacrificed his triple-century. That was sensible given the fact that the Indians had already made a mountain of runs. He has now put himself in some exceptional company:
7 - Double-centuries for Kohli in Tests, the most among Indian batsmen. He has gone past Tendulkar and Sehwag who had six double-centuries each. Now only Don Bradman (12), Sangakkara (11) and Brian Lara (9) have more double-hundreds. Hammond and Mahela Jayawardene also made seven.
Kohli will turn 31 next month. He has the time and the talent to break the double-century record of The Don.
