New Delhi, Sept 1: As Team India clinched the 3rd Test match against Sri Lanka by 117 runs and with it registered series win on Lankan soil after a gap of 22 years. Twitterati congratulated the team as well as skipper Virat Kohli for the historic feat.
Supporters of Indian cricket congratulated the team for coming strongly from behind in the second Test and eventually going on to win the series in the island nation. Former Indian cricketers and cricket commentators have commended the works of Team India.
Cricket fans are now terming this Test series victory as the beginning of Kohli-era because even skipper MS Dhoni, who was the most successful Test skipper in Indian history, too couldn't win a series in Lanka.
This also happens to be India's overseas victory after a long time.
Team India bowled out Sri Lanka for 268 on the fifth and final day of the 3rd Test at the Sinhalese Sports Club (SSC) ground in Colombo.
