Virat Kohli breaks Gavaskar and Tendulkar's record in test match
Indian skipper Virat Kohli slammed his 17th century against Sri Lanka in test match. India added 51 runs in 6.3 overs in the first half an hour of the fourth day. With this century, Virat has surpassed Sunil Gavaskar and Sachin Tendulkar's record in test cricket. Let me tell you Sunil Gavaskar took 27 matches to reach 9 centuries and Sachin scored just 7 hundred in 27 matches while Virat Kohli made 10 centuries in the same no of matches. Ajinkya Rahane remained unbeaten on 23 with Kohli as India decided to declare with the score on 240 for 3, lead by 549 runs.
