India beat Sri Lanka in first test, Virat Kohli broke Sachin's record

India beat Sri Lanka in first test, Virat Kohli broke Sachin's record

On the second day, Abhinav had forced himself into the game, pulling off a sharp run out and taking a stunning catch under the helmet to keep himself active in the game after a first-innings failure.

India, the world's top-ranked Test side, declared their second innings at 3-240 after captain Virat Kohli completed his 17th Test hundred.

Umesh Yadav (1/42) and Shami (1/43) took a wicket apiece at the start of the innings.

Then Karunaratne got together with Niroshan Dickwella to add 101 runs for the fifth wicket but the hosts were losing hope of a win gradually.

Although the pitch did not deteriorate significantly, Ravindra Jadeja and Ashwin were skilful enough to pick up three wickets each.

While MS Dhoni celebrated a young team's win a year ago in Zimbabwe with a "Spain vs Argentina" FIFA game, Virat Kohli also is known to be a Playstation freak.

He smashed nine boundaries in the innings.

That brought an end to the Lankan innings since they have only 10 players available with Asela Gunaratne ruled out on the opening day due to a thumb injury.

Saving the game was always going to be tough for Sri Lanka. Former captain Angelo Mathews fell soon afterwards, mishitting Jadeja to be caught by Hardik Pandya.

In ODIs, Kohli has scored 8,132 runs and has slammed as many as 28 centuries and 43 fifties in 189 matches, averaging 54.68.

Virat Kohli spends some "good time" with teammates.

Virat Kohli then joined Abhinav Mukund to fix India's innings. I have gone through my ups and downs, and that is a long long time back.

Even though Rohit Sharma didn't play in the first Test, he actively participated in the team's celebrations and congratulated them on winning the match. Sri Lanka were 29 for two at that stage.

"We lost a Test we should have won in 2015".

And the century took his Test batting average, which had dipped a little, to above 50, making him the best all-format player now. There are still some areas that we want to look at and try to improve upon; especially when you get four-five wickets and not letting the lower order to get away with the few runs in the latter half of the innings. Credit to the India team, and we need improvement in all three departments.

Six years since he made a debut, the off-spinner became the fastest bowler to scalp 250 Test wickets, a record which was previously held by Australia's Dennis Lillee.
