Cricket news - Stats: Day of records for double-centurion Kohli

Kohli's 254* is his highest individual score in Test cricket.

Stats highlights from the second day of the Pune Test between India and South Africa

7 Double hundreds by Virat Kohli - the most by an Indian player surpassing the six by Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag each. Kohli currently sits fourth in the list for most double centuries behind Don Bradman (12), Kumar Sangakkara (11) and Brian Lara (9), while Wally Hammond and Mahela Jayawardene also have seven each. This is also his highest individual score in Test cricket.

Double hundreds by Kohli

6 - Opponents against whom Kohli has scored double hundreds - the joint-most alongside Kumar Sangakkara and Younis Khan. Of the seven teams against whom Kohli has played against, Australia remains the only team against whom he hasn't scored a double century. This was Kohli's first hundred at home against South Africa.

254* - Highest individual score by an Indian captain - Kohli surpassed his own record of 243 against Sri Lanka at his home ground in Delhi in 2017/18. Of the 11 double centuries by Indian captains in Test cricket, seven belong to Kohli. The previous highest by an Indian captain against South Africa was Tendulkar's 169 in Cape Town in 1996/97.

Highest score by Indian captains

1 - Higher individual score for India against South Africa greater than Kohli's unbeaten 254 is Sehwag's 319 at the Chepauk in 2007/08. Prior to this series, the second-highest on that list was Tendulkar's 169 in Cape Town in 1996/97 but that is now relegated to fifth place behind Mayank Agarwal's 215 and Rohit Sharma's 176 in the first innings in Vizag.

Highest individual scores for India vs South Africa

138 - Innings taken by Kohli to reach the landmark of 7000 runs - the joint fourth-fastest after Wally Hammond (131), Virender Sehwag (134) and Sachin Tendulkar (136). Gary Sobers and Sangakkara also crossed the 7000-run mark in their 138th innings. Kohli's tally of 7054 runs is the most by an active cricketer (played at least a Test in the last 24 months).

225 - Partnership between Kohli and Ravindra Jadeja - the highest for the fifth wicket for India against South Africa surpassing 220 between Tendulkar and Sehwag in Bloemfontein in 2001/02. The 178-run stand between Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane for the fourth wicket is also an Indian record against South Africa bettering 145 between Rahul Dravid and Sourav Ganguly at the Wanderers in 1996/97.

27 - Test matches taken by Keshav Maharaj to reach the milestone of 100 wickets - the fifth South African spinner to reach the milestone. Among the five, only Hugh Tayfield has reached there in fewer matches (22).
