Cricket fraternity lauds Virat Kohli for his double century; see tweets

After India skipper Virat Kohli smashed a double ton on Friday against South Africa, the cricket fraternity praised the cricketer for his 'stupendous innings'.

Kohli played an unbeaten knock of 254 runs, his highest individual score in the longest format of the game, on the second day of the second Test match at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune. Kohli now has the most number of 200 plus scores, 7, for an Indian batsman.






India batsman Shikhar Dhawan took to Twitter and wrote: "Congratulations @imVkohli bro on your stupendous innings and a record of 7 double centuries."
