Virat Kohli is turning to be Indian cricket’s new milestone man. With almost every innings, he is improving his personal records.Virat Kohli brought an end to his run drought in Test cricket scoring a fifty in the 2nd innings of the Galle Test against Sri Lanka. Kohli, who was the only player in the India XI to have not scored in the double digits in the first innings, walked out to bat after a rain break with the scoreboard reading 56/2.
He reached the milestone with a double off the third ball of the 33rd over, bowled by Danushka Gunathilaka. At the end of day’s play, Kohli was unbeaten on 76 (114 balls) as India took a mammoth 598-run second innings lead.
It is a record he will be most proud of, and that is mainly on two counts. First, it’s how well you play away from home that determines your rating as a batsman. It also shows he is thriving in the responsibility of leadership than feel burdened by it.

One reason could be that the first innings effort had taken a toll on the Sri Lankan pace bowlers. As a result, the battle everyone was waiting for didn’t materialize. Kohli was at his fluent best, his feet were moving well, and be it the forward stretch or the backfoot punch, the ball was hitting the sweet spot.
