    Thought he'd stop by now but he's a fiend, Test hundred in New Zealand now. 24 International hundreds at the age of 25 - The years just began. Fitness permitted off the top of my head I believe he plays a further 9 tests this year.

    Another BCCI made "GOD". Well, they will make a temple of him sooner or later. But the fact is he is just a showman.

    He's a living legend. Daylight ahead of others in ODI's and amongst the top 5 bats in tests. Won't be long before he leaves rest behind in those too

    Tour of England next year and in those 5 matches will probably shape up his Test career. Make or break for him in swinging conditions. Has struggled in them but I have no doubt he'll prove the doubters wrong, May fix on his technique against the moving ball a little and I'm predicting him to get atleast 3 hundreds.

    Kohli surpasses Lara’s record of most double tons as captain

    NEW DELHI: India skipper Virat Kohli put in a performance which many would consider as brilliant, but by his standards it is probably safe to say a double century is above average. Kohli notched up his sixth double hundred against Sri Lanka in New Delhi in the morning session on day two of the third and final Test match of the series. In the process he made yet another record his – the most double hundreds in Test cricket by a captain after he overtook Brian Lara’s tally of 5. Kohli who had not even scored a half century at the Ferozeshah Kotla in Test cricket, decided he was going to change that. Batting with a lot of grace in front of people of his hometown, Kohli dispatched the Lankan bowlers to all parts of the ground without a second thought. As a captain, Kohli has led from the front with the bat with six double hundreds, putting him on top of the pile. There is no doubt that in the future that number is going to go up.

    Virat Kohli scored yet another hundred in a chase, his 20th, 18th in a successful chase and 33rd of his career. This was his first in South Africa and with that he completes a unique set.

    He has played in nine countries, all full-members, and has centuries in all of them. Sachin Tendulkar and Sanath Jayasuriya are the only other players to score centuries in nine of the first ten full-member nations. Tendulkar did not manage a century in West Indies and Jayasuriya in Zimbabwe. Kohli misses one in Pakistan where he has not played yet.

    Rivalries etc. aside, Virat the cricketer is such an amazing player. Such a fantastic credit for this game.
    He's already got 55 hundreds in Tests and ODIs combined and hope he carries on the way he is to reach 100 hundreds.

    So much passion and so much determination. The 2 things which are so rare to find in sport and summon on a consistent basis.

    If Pakistan don't win the next world cup then really wish this man wins it for his team. He really deserves the highest prize

    And he is still 30 years old. By the time he retires he will have at least 70 ODI tons.

    Some Indians i speak to still say Sachin is better as he played in an era with great fast bowlers and its hard to compare. I disagree and think Virat is better than Sachin, both technically and stats wise he will break Sachin's record.

    I dont think he will play long. I read some report where he said that he will play few more years. Will probably retire after next worldcup. 2023.

    Will be the greatest of all-time when all is said and done. Will probably win a WC too as a captain.

    Who cares about the IPL when you're winning test series and ODI series away.

    Feels weird having to defend Kohli from his fellow Indians. Dunno why so many of y'all are against him. Is it because he's compared to Tendulkar?
