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, it is rarity 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.
Incidentally, this is also Kohli's first ever Test hundred at the Feroz Shah Kotla.
His century off 110 balls and the half-century off 52 balls were his individual fastest landmarks in this format.
