In 2013, under the captaincy of Virat Kohli, India defeated Zimbabwe 5-0 in a five-match series on their home ground. Apart from Virat Kohli, none of the captains could do this work. Winning the toss, Team India batted first and scored a huge score of 375 in 50 overs. The biggest thing is that this is India’s biggest score on Sri Lankan ground.
Kohli was successful in his test: Before yesterday’s match, in the last three matches, India captain Virat Kohli won every toss and won the match by deciding to bowl first. In the first match, Sri Lanka defeated Sri Lanka by 9 wickets in the second and three wickets in the third match by 6 wickets. During these three matches, India did not get the chance to pursue a bigger score. India’s target of 217 runs in the first match was 231 runs in the second match and 218 runs in the third match. But yesterday’s captain Virat Kohli decided to bat first before winning the toss and after one wicket fell, Captain Kohli and Rohit Sharma started playing fast. Kohli scored 131 runs in only 96 balls while Rohit Sharma scored 104 runs off 88 balls. Manish Pandey also played good batting from India, not out on 50 off 42 balls.
Dhoni’s amazing batting: Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni also batted well in tomorrow’s match. Dhoni, who faced 42 balls, remained unbeaten on 49 with the help of a six and four fours. In this series against Sri Lanka, Dhoni is batting brilliantly. The biggest thing is that Dhoni is not out in every match. Dhoni did not get the chance to bat in the first match of the series.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni left the captaincy of ODI and T20 in January 2017. After leaving the captaincy there was considerable pressure on Dhoni. To maintain his place in the team, Dhoni needed consistently good performance. Yuvraj Singh and Suresh Raina did not get a place in the team for the tour to Sri Lanka for poor performance.
In such a case, there is also a message for Dhoni that if he does not perform well then he can be out of the team but Dhoni’s performance after leaving the captain against Sri Lanka only has been good.
