Virat Kohli first Indian skipper to hit double ton in West Indies

Virat Kohli returned to the Caribbean after five years and got down to business, scoring his maiden 200 in the very first innings of the opening Test match against the West Indies in Antigua. "Extremely satisfied" with his maiden Test double hundred, India skipper Virat Kohli says the feat has helped him wipe off the memories of his disappointing debut tour to the Caribbean in 2011 when he had struggled with the bat.

VVS Laxman: VVS Laxman's knock of 281 against Australia in Eden Gardens in 2001 has been rated as the greatest Test performance of the last 50 years. The right handed middle order batsman stroked the Aussies out of the tournament.

Rahul Dravid: In the second Test at Adelaide ‘The Wall’ scored 233 to help India to win the match. His 233 was the highest score by an Indian in Australia against Australia. Not only he slammed the double century but also scored the winning runs.

Sunil Gavaskar: Sunil Gavaskar's 220 at age 21 years and 277 days against the West Indies at Queen's Park Oval in 1971 made him the youngest double century. Not only he scored 220 in second innings but also slammed 124 in first innings and finished the series with 774.

Navjot Singh Sidhu: Sidhu's finest moment in Tests was his 201 against West Indies in 1996-97 Trinidad, an act of supreme endurance lasting 11 hours. And his ruthlessness against spinners was legion.

Sachin Tendulkar: One of the greatest batsman of the century scored 248 runs against Bangladesh in 2004. It was his highest score in Test cricket and finished with 51 tons.
