As curtains come down today on India’s tour of Sri Lanka, Virat Kohli’s men have a chance to create history in Colombo by pocketing another success. It has been a complete domination by India over the hosts. The test series was captured with a 3-0 demolition act and One day International rubber was secured with another clean swap, 5-0.
India has an opportunity to emulate Australia by winning all matches in the tour across the three formats. Australia is the only team to have achieved this rare feat of 9-0, being the biggest margin of clean sweeps in a bilateral tour. They won 3 Tests, 5 ODIs and 1 T20I against Pakistan at home in the year 2010. Kohli has made it a habit of setting records in batting and also as a captain. So he will be aiming to help India match Australia’s record.
