Virat Kohli is in the form of his life at the moment. The star batsman recently cracked his fourth Test double-century during India's win over Bangladesh at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad. The 28-year-old was adjudged Man of the Match for his knock of 204 as India stretched their unbeaten run to 19 Tests. Kohli earned accolades from various quarters across the cricketing world. Among those applauding Kohli was Sachin Tendulkar, who acknowledged Kohli's brilliance in the most unique manner.

"The sweet spot on your bat speaks about the awesome form you are in, don't need scoreboards. May god always keep your bat like that @imVkohli," Tendulkar tweeted on Friday evening.

With Australia set to tour India for a four-match series, the hosts will be overwhelming favourites to continue the incredible run of form under Virat Kohli's stewardship.
