Virat Kohli’s 100th Test turned out to be special as India thrashed Sri Lanka by an innings and 222 runs in Mohali. It was indeed a comprehensive win for the home team as the game concluded inside three days. Kohli was mighty pleased with his team’s performance as he shared a heartwarming video after the conclusion of the game.

Taking to Twitter, the 33-year-old shared a clip in which he thanked his family, teammates, support staff members and BCCI for their support in his journey. Notably, Kohli, who stepped down as Test skipper earlier this year, became only the 12th Indian to complete 100 Test matches. Coming to bat at number four, the veteran batter even played some delightful shots. However, he perished for 45 as left-arm spinner Lasith Embuldeniya shattered his stumps.

Nonetheless, India went on to record an emphatic win. Coming to Kohli’s special post, the caption read: “Been a long journey to get here. Full of ups and downs and learnings. Would not have had it any other way. Thank you for all your support.”

“Thank You. To all my family, teammates, coaches and BCCI. You have made this journey beautiful. Onwards and Upwards,” read a message in the video.

Speaking of the content, Ravindra Jadeja stole the show with his all-round brilliance. While he slammed a magnificent 175 in India’s first innings, the left-arm spinner scalped a total of nine wickets in the game. Needless to mention, the 33-year-old was named the Player of the Match as India took a 1-0 lead in the three-match series.

Skipper Rohit Sharma was pleased with his team’s performance as he didn’t expect the game to get over inside three days. “It was a great game of cricket from our perspective. We ticked all the boxes we wanted to. To be honest I didn’t think it is going to be that kind of a Test match which would get over in three days. It was a good batting pitch. Lot of credit to the guys (Indian bowlers), they bowled very well in tandem and kept the pressure,” said the 34-year-old after the game.
