Skipper Virat Kohli was unbeaten on 191 as India reached 477 for four at lunch on the second day of the one-off Test against Bangladesh in Hyderabad on Friday.
Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane stitched a 222-run partnership for the fourth wicket, before the latter got out on 82. The duo added 21 runs to their overnight’s total with Kohli moving close to his fourth double century in Test career. His first double ton came in July 2016 against West Indies at Antigua.
During his innings, Kohli also broke the world record of most runs scored by an Indian batsman in home season. With a boundary off Shakib Al Hasan, the Delhi boy broke another Delhi dasher, Virender Sehwag’s tally of 1,105 runs in a season.
Taijul Islam got the only wicket of the morning of Rahane, who was caught by Mehedi Hasan for a well-played 82. His dismissal brought Wriddhimaan Saha at the crease, and the wicket-keeper batsman looked shaky for his four runs, before both teams headed for lunch.
