With his ethereal sequence of knocks in the recently completed series against Sri Lanka, Kohli became the first batsman in the history of Indian cricket to amass 600-plus runs in three different Test series.

Sports minister Dayasiri Jayasekara said Sri Lanka Cricket made the complaint on Tuesday to the International Cricket Council, saying "we can't play like this as four players had vomited" due to the pollution.

The 29-year-old, who stroked 243 and followed with 50 in the drawn third Test against the islanders, entered the series in sixth position but has leapfrogged David Warner, Cheteshwar Pujara, Kane Williamson and Joe Root after the stupendous run which saw him average 152.50.

Since Champions Trophy in June, India have been playing non-stop cricket and Kohli has complained of the same. "We finally learned how to face such conditions in the future", said Chandimal. We have already started talking about that. To be honest, we put in a lot of hard work in our fielding.

Dilruwan Perera, dropped once at second slip, and Angelo Mathews, let off twice, went on to bat valuable time - Mathews scored a century - that proved to be the difference in the final equation. "Overall, the Indian team has improved as a fielding unit but slip fielding is something we are still looking to improve". We will leave it up to the Sri Lankan board to decide if they want us to play in Delhi again.

Ed said that he hadn't been asked by Harry to perform at his wedding in May 2018 , but when asked if he would do it, he replied: 'Yeah, why not'.

"2017 has been a fantastic year for me", he said. "This decision is not up to us", he added, about the pollution situation experienced during this match. One way to answer that question would be to compare Kohli's batting record with that of former Indian batting maestro, Sachin Tendulkar, whose prolific run-scoring ability would often power India's performances in the past. Many of our players were there in 2013. "If we have a bit of luck, I think we have the team to do well overseas", Dravid said.

Between October 2003 and April 2004, Dravid scored three double centuries against as many opponents in Tests.

Kohli's next Test assignment will be when India tour South Africa in January for three matches, where he should have a chance to climb to the top spot for the first time ever in his career. India did not have enough time to prepare against South Africa and therefore opted for green tracks during the home series against Sri Lanka.

"But we need to play the game at the same time, so after the first two days, we had a discussion with the team and said we need to forget about the conditions and play the game".
