Cricketers Wish India On 71st Independence Day

The Indian cricket fans could not have asked for a better Independence Day gift, as Team India thrashed Sri Lanka by an innings and 171 runs to complete its first three-Test series sweep on a foreign soil on Monday (August 14).

Virat Kohli & Co. had already sealed the three-match series 2-0 and completed the whitewash at Pallekele inside three days, bowling Sri Lanka out for 135 and 181 after scoring 487 in the first innings.

The series win is India’s eighth consecutive victory under Virat Kohli. Prior to the latest series win, India defeated Sri Lanka and South Africa in 2015 before winning against West Indies (2-0), New Zealand (3-0), England (4-0), Bangladesh (1-0) and Australia (2-1) last year. With 125 points, the Kohli-led side is currently the best Test side in the world, leading second-placed South Africa by a huge gap of 15 rating points.

The win against Sri Lanka came just a day before the 70th Independence Day, giving the fans one more reason to savour the historic day and cricketers across the globe have also wished the whole nation on such a big occasion:

An avid sports lover, i always wanted to pursue a career in football. But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan.
You will never walk alone.
