WATCH: Virat Kohli scores 17th Test hundred; 10th as Indian captain

Posted On

Indian skipper Virat Kohli might have failed to deliver in the first innings of the Galle Test but he quickly made up by smashing a brilliant century in the second innings, 17th of his Test career (10th as Indian captain), to extend visitors dominance against the hosts, Sri Lanka.


Virat brought about a fine century to increase his team’s lead against the hosts. He played chanceless innings and scored at a fast rate with the Sri Lankan bowlers having a little answer on how to stop India’s run-machine.


During his knock, Kohli has also become the quickest among India captains to reach 1000 Test runs on foreign soil, breaking Sachin Tendulkar‘s record.
