NEW DELHI, Dec 2: Indian cricket�s current �Milestone Man� Virat Kohli today became the first international captain to hit three successive hundreds in a three-Test series.
Kohli also completed his individual 5000 runs in the longest version of the game.
While many captains have had three or four Test tons in a five-match series, but it is rare that a batsman has scored three consecutive tons in a three-match series.
Kohli now has 11 international hundreds in a season � one less than Sachin Tendulkar�s 12.
The Indian captain scored 104 not out in Kolkata followed by 213 in Nagpur before completing his hat-trick with his 20th Test hundred in his 63rd game here.
Incidentally, this is also Kohli�s first ever Test hundred at the Feroz Shah Kotla. � PTI
