The Virat Kohli-led Indian team clinched the three-match series against Sri Lanka after they won the third and final match in Kandy by an innings and 171 runs. India rode on R Ashwin’s four-for in second innings to bundle out Sri Lanka for 181 in second innings. Earlier, India compiled a total of 487 in first innings, courtesy individual hundreds from Shikhar Dhawan and Hardik Pandya.
Later, chinaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav, who was playing his first game in the series, scalped a total of four wickets and Sri Lanka were eventually all out for 135. This is India’s eighth Test series win on the trot under the captaincy of Virat Kohli. Here we take a look at how the Indian team is celebrating their success.
