Indian skipper Virat Kohli announced smashed his 17th Test hundred to score an unbeaten 103 as India concluded their second innings of first Test match at 240/3 (d) to set hosts Sri Lanka a target of 550 runs at Galle. After a failure in first innings, Kohli gained his form back to notch up the ton. The right-handed batsman looked pretty solid with his stroke-making right from the beginning.

Earlier, India were 189/3 at stumps after Abhinav Mukund was the man to be dismissed on the final delivery of the day. He scored 81 in the process. The Virat Kohli-led side took a healthy lead of 309 runs in the first innings bundling out the home side for 291 in reply to their 600. Here we take a look at how pundits and others are saying about Virat’s sensational knock.
