Kohli’s 100th Test victory

Kohli’s name was also tweeted by the International Cricket Council.
The Rohit era begins.
Rohit Sharma is captaining his first Test series. India’s 35th Test captain is Rohit Sharma. Rohit Sharma has captained 12 limited overs matches since becoming the full-time captain, and he has not lost a single match. The obstacles in Test cricket, on the other hand, will be extremely different. Since the tour of England last year, Rohit has not played a single Test match. After a six-month hiatus, he is returning to this format.
Sri Lanka will have to demonstrate its worth.
The Sri Lankan team would be expected to perform well in Tests after a disappointing performance in the T20 series. Angelo Mathews, Dimuth Karunaratne, and Lahiru Thirimanne are legends in this format for this side.
