Though the ODI series between India and Sri Lanka is wrapped up by the visitors, team India seems it can’t lose a match on this tour of Sri Lanka even if they want to.

They tried in the second One Day International, with a batting collapse during a chase. They almost repeated it in the third ODI too. But so far, Sri Lanka have only been able to get close to upsetting India, it’s not been a reality.

The Indian cricket team, after choosing to bat first, are dominating Sri Lanka in the fourth ODI at the R. Premadasa Stadium on Thursday. Virat Kohli has scored his 29th century and Rohit Sharma his 33rd half-century.

It took just 76 balls for Virat Kohli to reach the hundred run mark. The Delhi-born star gave us a demonstration of his surreal talent once again as he hammered 14 boundaries and a towering maximum in the process. Virat Kohli surpassed Sri Lankan legend Sanath Jayasuriya’s tally of 28 One Day International hundred and is now the third in the most centuries list.

While it’s just a matter of time when Virat Kohli goes past Ponting it will take some hard work to equal the benchmark set by the Master Blaster. But it can be safely concluded that if there is someone who can give Tendulkar’s record a major scare, it is none other than Virat Kohli.
