‘The season of Virat Kohli in Test cricket’: How Twitter reacted to Indian captain’s double century

Virat Kohli became the first Indian captain to score a double century abroad as the visitors took firm control of the first Test against the West Indies with a solid batting display at Antigua.

Kohli (200 off 283 balls) eased to his maiden double hundred before Ashwin (113 off 253) struck his third Test ton to help India amassed 566 for eight declared, and then reduce the West Indies to 31 for one in 16 overs at the end of the second day's play.

Kohli is now tied with Mohammad Azharuddin for most centuries (5) by an Indian captain abroad.

Fans on Twitter was out in full force praising Kohli's double ton. Here is a look at some of the best tweets of the evening.

While Indian journalist Rajdeep Sardesai lauded Virat Kohli and Joe Root for their masterful battling displays, cricketer Kevin Pietersen decided to ignore the ongoing England vs Pakistan series and focus solely on Kohli's craftsmanship.

No matter what the occasion, there will be people who find a way to make fun of CM Arvind Kejriwal!

Bollywood followed up with Kohli's double ton and congratulated him on this momentous achievement.

The progression of Virat Kohli as a cricketer has been the story of the year.  An overseas double hundred ensures that his test proficiency is climbing and this tweet sums up what all of Day 2 of the India vs West Indies Test match was about.

At the end of Day 2, Mohammad Shami had taken of West Indies opener Rajendra Chandrika as West Indies ended the day on 31/1 with 16 overs gone. India are in a firm position now thanks to the batting masterclass put together by captain Kohli.

A quick slurry of wickets on Day 3, and this Test match could be as good as done. Over to the Indian bowlers now!
