The recent tour of Srilanka has been an awesome, memorable and a lot more morale-boosting for the Indian Cricket Team. The tour of 3 test matches, 5 ODI matches and a T20 match with Srilanka is a tour to remember for the Indian skipper Virat Kohli. As these sort of tours doesn’t come very often and how often we hear about clean sweeps in such tours. This is the first time for the Indian Cricket team to have won in all formats on a tour.
A chance was well taken by Shikar Dhawan as he was in the team due to the injury of Murali Vijay. His performance once again proved he was right for the spot. Leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal and chinaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav played a very important role. They were vital in taking the wickets for the Indian team and clinch the clean sweep.
Records Indian broke in this tour
- 30 ODI hundreds by Virat Kohli means he equaled Ricky Ponting (2nd in the list) and might be on his way to break Sachin’s record of 49 ODI hundreds.
- Yet again Mahendra Singh Dhoni breaks the record this time beating Sangakkara. The first ever to reach 100 stumpings in ODIs.
