Virat Kohli century

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.
