“Been a long journey to get here. Full of ups and downs and learnings. Would not have had it any other way. Thank you for all your support,” Kohli captioned the video.
“Thank You. To all my family, teammates, coaches and BCCI. You have made this journey beautiful. Onwards and Upwards,” read a message in the video.

Team India celebrated his 100th Test with a massive win. Ravindra Jadeja starred with bat and ball as India took a 1-0 lead in the 2-match Test series. After being bundled out for 174 in the first innings, Sri Lanka were made to follow-on and were all out for 178 in 60 overs to complete a meek surrender by the visitors in just three days.
Jadeja, after making 175 not out with the bat that helped India declare their innings at 574/8, took 5/41 in the first innings and 4/46 in the second innings. He and Ravichandran Ashwin, who took 2/49 and 4/47 apart from making 61 with the bat, made merry on a day where 16 Sri Lanka wickets fell.
