Antigua, July 22 (ANI): Virat Kohli continued his efficient accumulation of runs as he smashed his maiden double century, which also saw India past 400 at lunch on the second day of the opening Test against West Indies here at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium on Friday.

Resuming at overnight score of 302-4, the opening session went wicket less for India as Kohli (200) and Ravichandran Ashwin (64*) went on to share a huge partnership of 168 runs for fifth wicket.

Kohli, now has become the first Indian skipper to score a double-century in the longest-format of the game away from home. It was Kohli's maiden first-class 200 as well, ESPNcricinfo reported.

The skipper, whose previous highest score (169) in Tests came against Australia at the MCG 2014, also reached his 3000 Test runs from 2000 runs on the opening day.

However, Kohli was dismissed on the very first ball after lunch.

Earlier, Shikhar Dhawan gave his side a perfect start by scoring 85 runs, which included nine boundaries and one six.(ANI)
