Virat Kohli last week became the first captain to win two Test series in Sri Lanka. India’s innings and 53-run victory over Sri Lanka in Colombo helped India take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series.India’s majestic win in Colombo also made them the most successful team to tour Sri Lanka since 2014. It was India’s fourth victory in five matches. Pakistan remain the second best team with two victories in five Tests.In these three years, Sri Lanka have hosted 18 Tests and interestingly, all of them have yielded results. Sri Lanka have won 11 while Bangladesh have been the only other team to have won a Test.The island nation has meanwhile whitewashed Pakistan (2-0), West Indies (2-0), Australia (3-0) and Zimbabwe (1-0)during these three years.Kohli now aims to become the first Indian captain to sweep a Test series in Sri Lanka. Mohammad Azharuddin had achieved the feat but at home in 1994.Kohli extended his dream run as captain to eighth consecutive Test series victory when India won the Colombo Test on Sunday.Kohli and Co. have been the most dominant Test side in the world and have not lost a series home or away since their 2-0 defeat in their 2014-15 tour of Australia.Since that series loss, India have outplayed all their rivals winning eight consecutive Test series without much fuss. In these two and a half years, India under captain Kohli have lost only two matches while have won 18 games.Kohli surpassed Steve Waugh’s record of seven consecutive series wins when India destroyed hosts Sri Lanka at the Sinhalese Sports Club in Colombo. Ricky Ponting holds the record with nine series victories in a row.advertisementKohli’s record as captain in this time has been phenomenal to say the least. In 28 Tests, Kohli has registered 18 wins, three losses and six draws. Overall Kohli has 18 wins and is just four away from overtaking Sourav Ganguly’s tally of Test 21 wins and become India’s second most successful captain after Dhoni (27 wins).India had scripted a rampaging 304-run victory in the first Test with opener Shikhar Dhawan smashing a career-best 190 with regular openers Lokesh Rahul and Murali Vijay, left out injured.Dhawan smashed a 168-ball 190 in the first innings to steer India to a mammoth total of 600 and help it take a firm grip on the match, which eventually they never let go.Abhinav Mukund also scored a crafty 81 in the second essay which had Kohli’s unbeaten 103.At No.3 the ever-dependable Cheteshwar Pujara, who scored a patient 153 off 265 balls at Galle, notched up his 13th century in his landmark 50th Test.Spin twin Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja picked up a five-wicket haul each in the second match. Jadeja will miss the third and final Test after he was suspended by the ICC for dangerously throwing the ball at Sri Lanka’s nightwatchman Malinda Pushpakumara.
