Kohli makes history first double century in Tests

KOLKATA: India captain Virat Kohli scored his first double century in any format when he whipped Roston Chase for a quick single in the first session of the second day of the first Test against the West Indies in Antigua on Friday.

Kohli was on 200 off 281 deliveries at lunch, with India’s scoreboard reading 404 for 4. Giving him company was Ravichandran Ashwin on 64.
