Kohli and consistency go hand in hand. 16 centuries, 4 double hundreds and 14 fifties in 92 innings speaks a lot about his conversion rate. That means he has converted 16 out of 30 fifties into hundreds and 4 out of 16 hundreds into massive double-centuries. Also, he is matchless on average count across formats. His average counts 51.76 in Tests, 53.12 in ODIs and 53.44 respectively. These figures are enough to scare off any opponent in the world.

This earned him a big record to his name: four double-centuries in a row, the most by any player in the world. With this great feat, Virat Kohli surpassed veteran Don Bradman and Rahul Dravid who scored a double-ton each in three back-to-back series. If this doesn't go that impressive, Kohli ended at top of the batsmen chart in three out of last four Test series played against West Indies, England and Bangladesh respectively. The form he is undergoing at the moment makes him one of the strongest contenders of the leading run scorer in India Vs Australia Test series 2017.
