The Indian cricket team under the captaincy of Virat Kohli has now won nine consecutive Test series equalling Australia's record, which they created under Ricky Ponting's captaincy. Indian fans could not hold their joy and took to Twitter, boasting the records that Kohli and his team broke today.
Sri Lanka churned out an unlikely draw in the third Test in Delhi as Roshen Silva (74*) and Niroshan Dickwella (44*) capitalized on Dhananjaya Silva’s hard-fought ton to see off the Indian bowlers. With 36 more minutes to go, skipper Virat Kohli eventually offered a draw that the visitors accepted. However, India ended up winning the series, courtesy their win by an innings in the second Test in Nagpur.
I guess we have the citizens to thank for this! :P
Best tweet of the day! xD
The last time Sri Lankans showed a fight against Indians, they had Sita with them. #INDvSL— Silly Point 🏏 (@FarziCricketer) December 6, 2017

imVkohli Kohli: "Last time I took a break, it was very difficult to handle. But my body is wanting it right now. It has taken a toll in the last couple of years, and right now is the perfect time to take a break before South Africa."#INDvSL— #LiveCricket (@CricketCAREER) December 6, 2017
Hopefully, we will break this record after the SA series!
