India head coach Rahul Dravid felicitated star batter Virat Kohli and presented him with a special memento for his 100th Test ahead of Day 1 of the first Test between India and Sri Lanka. Kohli is accompanied by his wife Anushka as he ticks off the huge milestone.
Rahul Dravid said, “It’s well deserved, well earned, and hopefully it is just the start of many things to come. As we say in the dressing room, double it up.”

“It is a special moment for me. My wife is here and so is my brother. Everyone is very proud. It is indeed a team game and it couldn’t have been possible without you. With the amount we play with three formats and an IPL, the one takeaway the next generation can take from me is that I played 100 games in the purest format,” says Kohli.
Kohli will join an illustrious list comprising Sunil Gavaskar, Dilip Vengsarkar, Kapil Dev, Sachin Tendulkar, Anil Kumble, Rahul Dravid, Sourav Ganguly, VVS Laxman, Virender Sehwag, Harbhajan Singh and Ishant Sharma, all of whom played 100 Tests.
