Mumbai: India's Virat Kohli smashed his third double century of the year when he notched 200 runs on day four of the fourth Test against England in Mumbai on Sunday.

England, who scored 400 in their first innings, must win at Mumbai's Wankhede Stadium to keep the series alive going into the fifth Test in Chennai.

Kohli, who has enjoyed a record-breaking year, passed 1,000 Test runs for 2016 and 4,000 for his career during his time at the crease on Saturday.

The 28-year-old scored a double century against the West Indies in July and repeated the feat against New Zealand in October.

He scored 167 in the second Test of the five-match series against England at Visakhapatnam and has been the standout batsman of the contest.
