India vs Sri Lanka: Ind defeated SL by 239 runs and an Innings

Team India defeated Sri Lanka by 239 runs and an innings in the Second test match today. After Virat Kohli hit a blistering double century to hand India a massive first-innings lead of 405, India declared on 610-6 after Rohit Sharma (102) had completed his hundred, as they seek to go one up in the three-match series.

India captain Virat Kohli had complained about the lack of preparation time for the South Africa tour.

Ishant Sharma, who took three wickets in the first innings, will look to strike early on Day 4 of the first Test between India and Sri Lanka in Nagpur. Ashwin took 4 wickets in this comeback series. Sri Lankan team got all-out for 166 runs in the second innings and India defeated SL by 239 runs and an innings.

Virat Kohli is Indian cricket’s, Emperor Ashoka. From the brash, coarse, temperamental youth, Kohli has grown into a leader who channelises his aggression and fulfils his passion. What has barely changed is his inexhaustible hunger for runs.

At Nagpur, he made 213, making it his 10th 100+ score of the year across formats, a record among captains eclipsing the likes of Ricky Ponting and Graeme Smith. It was also his fifth double hundred in Test cricket. The Delhiite averages a whopping 63.93 as Test captain including 12 hundred.
