Virat Kohli’s 243 was eclipsed by Delhi pollution as India declared on 536/7 against Sri Lanka on the second day of the third Test at Delhi’s Feroz Shah Kotla.
At one point, Sri Lanka were left with no substitute fielders.Earlier, Kohli surpassed Brian Lara in scoring most double tons (6) by a captain.
He also surpassed the likes of Don Bradman in scoring three double centuries in two successive calendar years. India need a draw to equal West Indies and Australia’s world record of nine consecutive Test series wins.
After Murali Vijay and Kohli plundered the Sri Lanka bowlers on Day 1 to take India to 371/4, the story has not changed on the second day too. Chances of Sri Lanka making a comeback looks bleak
