After a 3-0 win in the T20Is, Rohit Sharma-led in-form Team India will be hosting Sri Lanka for a two-match Test series, starting from March 4. The first match of the series will be played at the PCA Stadium in Mohali, which will also be former India captain Virat Kohli’s 100th Test match.
India, led by Rohit Sharma, will now be playing against Sri Lanka again for a two-match Test series, scheduled to be commencing on March 4. The series opener will be played at the PCA Stadium in Mohali. This match will be a special for two of India’s modern-day greats Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli.
While Rohit will be captaining the Indian team for the very first time in red-ball cricket, Virat Kohli will be playing a Test match for India for the 100th time.
This will also be Virat Kohli’s first Test match as non-captain for India since he relinquished the position after losing the away Test series against South Africa in January.
Captioning the promo ahead of the 100th Test of Virat Kohli, host broadcaster Star Sports wrote on their social media handle: “The 🤴 who makes us #BelieveInBlue is ready for his 💯th Test! 🙌 us if you’re in for a #ViratKohli special in the 1st Paytm #INDvSL Test!”
Kohli was initially supposed to play his 100th Test match during the series-deciding third Test against South Africa at Cape Town in January. However, he missed the second Test at the Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg after suffering an upper back spasm, and, as a result, KL Rahul was named India’s stand-in captain for that match.
Here’s the promotional video:
