This has led him to become a highly respected social media personality as his fans, followers and admirers kept on posting various praises of their cricket hero. The Indian captain smashed a lot of records on his way to his overwhelming double ton, becoming the first Indian captain to register two double tons. His three double centuries were all in the year 2016, just oneshy away from reaching Michael Clarke’s record of four double centuries in a year.
