Virat Kohli had not scored a single double century in his career before he became the Indian Test team’s captain. After that, Kohli smashed seven double hundreds in Test cricket. He recorded his maiden Test double hundred against the West Indies cricket team at the Sir Viv Richards Stadium in 2016.

Next, he scored double centuries at home against New Zealand, England, and Bangladesh. In the 2017 home series versus Sri Lanka, Virat Kohli recorded back-to-back double tons. Last year, Kohli registered his best score of 254* against the South African cricket team at the MCA Stadium.

Pakistan recently elected Babar Azam as their captain in Test cricket. Like Kohli, Azam could register a double century in the game’s most extended format. Babar’s highest score in first-class cricket is 266. Thus, he has the ability to play a big inning and the fans can back him to break Virat Kohli’s record in Test cricket.
