Team India is on a high after registering a thumping win over Sri Lanka in the first Test at Galle. The second Test between the two nations, starting on Thursday in Colombo, marks a special occasion for a renowned cricket journalist and Managing Editor of Wisden India, R Kaushik, who will be covering 100th Test of his career.
Kaushik is known for his exceptional description about the game, deep analysis and simple writing, liked by innumerable readers and many players as well, who follow his articles and writing. During a press conference on Thursday, India’s captain Virat Kohli rewarded Kaushik with Team India’s jersey and congratulated him for his brilliant journalism career.

Kohli was impressed by his dedication towards cricket and after presenting him the Indian jersey, he said,”It is a great achievement and I think you are one of those who truly understand the game, not looking for any masala, and I am really happy to present this Indian jersey to you and I hope you continue with your good work.”
India is all geared up to clinch the series after dominating the hosts completely in the first Test. Kohli will look to continue his impressive form with the bat and India’s opener KL Rahul will be looking to make a comeback in the playing XI after being rested in the first Test due to viral fever.
