Virat Kohli’s unbeaten innings of 147 off 241 balls has put India in a great position at the end of three of the fourth Test against England at Mumbai on Saturday.

The 28-year-old batsman strung valuable partnerships with Murali Vijay, Ravindra Jadeja and Jayant Yadav to help India gain a lead of 51 runs at the close of play.

India will be looking to get a lead of at least 100 runs before England come out to bat in the second innings.

During the day’s play, Kohli became the first player to record a career average of 50-plus in all three formats of the game.

The Quint takes a look at a few other records that were broken on day three.
