Following an emphatic victory over the host nation Sri Lanka, Kohli’s men took to the pool to enjoy some time off from the action. The 2nd Test ended in four days, giving the players an additional day off. A video was posted on the official Facebook page of Indian cricket team, where Kohli and his gang was seen unwinding in the pool.
India now have an unbeatable lead of 2-0 in the 3-match series after the visitors wrapped up the game in four and half hours to go 2 up in the series. Jadeja made merry of the task in hand as he scalped a five-wicket haul and ended up with 7 wickets in the match apart from a valuable fifty with the bat. He turned out to be the chief architect as the thrashing saw an innings and 53–run defeat for the host.
India also have an opportunity to push for a whitewash after successfully defending the trophy, which was won in 2015 by Virat’s men in the same territory. “Well, it’s obviously nice to win this series again. We won this last time also, in 2015. Yes, we do have that chance, but honestly speaking, we are not looking at Test matches or Test cricket now as home and away anymore. We are just looking at Test matches as Test matches and we want to win anywhere that we play,” Kohli said.
“If we can believe enough in our abilities then we are not really bothered about where we are playing. That kind of energy I can sense in the team, and the team believes that as well. We are creating a habit of winning that I think can be carried on in future as well.”
India had an impressive home season last year and they have started the away season on a good note. Apart from Jadeja, Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane too found to be in good touch, while KL Rahul continued his good show, scoring a half-century before getting involved in a run-out, that saw the back of the opener.
