And so, on Friday, Virat Kohli scored yet another double hundred. It’s funny to notice that he had made his first IPL hundred last year playing in his ninth IPL season and then he went on to make four hundreds same season. Same goes with the test double hundreds. It took him six seasons to score his first test double ton, but once there, he has already done it four times in the same season, and counting. In the process, he has become the first ever batsman to make four double hundreds in four straight test series. This is some feat for a young man.

There is a swagger about his aura as a batsman, reminiscent of Viv Richards. There is an assurance about him, that even Sachin Tendulkar never had. He walks on the pitch and goes about his business, almost every damn time. He seems to be playing on a different pitch, in a different zone and tough situations never seem to bother him. He remains calm and unfazed. There is a sense of inevitability about him. What’s more, he likes to take the game to the opposition, he has that “in your face” attitude about him, and he is a fiercely aggressive competitor.
