Indian Cricket Team fans were shocked when Indian team struggled against Sri Lankan bowling attack in the first innings. Ahead of the final day of the first day which was played at Kolkata, everyone thought was India will lose to visitors. But no know thought about skipper Virat Kohli. During the second innings, Virat Kohli earned more respect for his gesture.

Virat Kohli who got out on duck in the first innings of the first test against Sri Lanka, went to score another test century in the second innings. The remainings overs became an issue for India to winning that match. When he was just 14 short to score his another ton, he never thought about personal records. He signalled Indian coach Ravi Shastri and asked ‘Shall I declare now?’.

Kohli signalled Shastri in an animated way before shastri made a signal with his fingers, perhaps telling the skipper to score 20 more runs. But he did not much deliveries to complete his 18th test century as he reached with a massive six.
