History repeats itself at Nagpur on Sunday during the India-Sri Lanka second Test match: A Sachin-Virat coincidence
It's a mere Sachin-Virat coincidence. In the year 2000, Zimbabwe visited India to play a bilateral series and the second Test match of the series was played in Nagpur.

On this very day, 26th November, in 2000, Sachin Tendulkar scored a double century with a score of 201 not out, batting at number four in Nagpur, exactly 17 years ago.

In the year 2017, on the same day 26th November, history was repeated on Sunday during the Test match between India and Sri Lanka. Coincidentally, the venue of both the matches was also same, Nagpur.

In the Test against Sri Lanka on Sunday, 26th November, 2017, Virat Kohli too scored a double century with 213 runs, also batting at number four, just like Tendulkar.

This only proves the similarities between two greats of Indian cricket Sachin Tendulkar and Virat Kohli. Geniuses often coincide!
