Virat Kohli, the Indian captain must be happy with his team after India won the 2nd Test at Colombo against Sri Lanka. In the process of doing so, he also became the first Indian captain to win 2 Test series in Sri Lanka.
In a short span of Test captaincy, he already has so much in the bag that makes him the best in this time to play cricket. Kohli, against his nature, enforced the follow on and it turned out to be a good decision as India went on to win by an innings and 55 runs. Although Sri Lanka fought hard with 2 batsmen scoring centuries but in the end 622 proved to be too much of a mountain to climb.
Kohli is not only delighted with the win. Today, he met someone from WWE. He met the big guy, The Great Khali, a former WWE World Heavyweight Champion. The Great Khali recently made a return to WWE ring at Battleground, when he helped Jinder Mahal to defend his WWE title in a Punjabi Prison match. The Great Khali was the one who had introduced the match when he fought against Batista for the championship only to lose it though.
Here is what Virat Kohli tweeted-
It was Great to meet The Great Khali, what a guy! 💪🤼 pic.twitter.com/FoUhHMWFcX

Virat Kohli felt great meeting the former WWE champion, The Great Khali. Both are greats in their own field of sport as they have give their best to what they know to do the best.
WWE is planning to expand their reach to Indian audience, this tweet might just help WWE in the right way. WWE is very optimistic about Indian audience reach and that is the reason why Jinder Mahal is the current champion. Adding The Great Khali in the picture would just boost Indian TV audience is what the writers and COO HHH feel. They also made a custom made WWE belt for the IPL 2017 champions, Mumbai Indians. Rohit Sharma MI captain had tweeted with the championship belt earlier.
On the other hand, Virat Kohli, now has a unique chance to win the 3rd and the final Test against Sri Lanka to complete a whitewash. This was Virat Kohli’s 8th consecutive Test series victory, only behind Ricky Ponting who stands with 9 consecutive Test series wins. One more series, and he will equal Ponting for the record of 9 consecutive Test series. Also, this is India’s 4th consecutive series win against Sri Lanka, equaling Australia’s record for the same. Kohli would love to end the series on a high note and win that final Test.
