It was Hardik’s maiden first-class hundred and the joint-fastest ton by an Indian batsman at No. 8.The win was also India’s first overseas Test series whitewash and it also extended Virat Kohli’s dream run as captain with this being his eighth consecutive Test series victory, a new world record in the longest format. Kohli also became the first Indian captain to win two Test series in Sri Lanka.Kohli and Co. have been the most dominant Test side in the world and have not lost a series home or away since their 2-0 defeat in their 2014-15 tour of Australia.last_img
