The first came in early November 2011 against Orissa, in which he scored 314 off 375 balls. The second came in November 2012 against Gujarat, in which he scored 303 not out. And the third came against Railways in December 2012, in which he scored 331 runs in 501 balls.

When Australia toured India in 2017, he bagged 25 wickets and made two handy half-centuries down the order in four test matches, which earned him the player of the match as well as the player of the series award.
