Another day, another match and another dominating performance from Indian batsmen, Sri Lanka were once again searching for answers throughout the day after India chose to bat first on flat Kotla wicket.
Early on the surface provided some help for the fast bowlers but Sri Lankan bowlers couldn’t capitalize on that, Indian skipper was at his imperious best as he notched up his third consecutive test hundred in three innings.
Murali Vijay too showed signs of some great batting form on his way to another test match ton, Twitter was showering praise on both the Indian batsmen, but Virat Kohli for his unbelievable run of form was the talking point on the social media website.
Here are all the reactions to another Kohli masterclass:
First time in India's Test history that two batsmen have scored 150 runs in a day's play – Virat Kohli has added 151 and Murali Vijay 154 so far. #IndvSL

Not like Bradman. Not like Tendulkar. Virat will write his own script in the annals of Cricket #IndvSL

International hundred no. 52 for Virat Kohli – now only 48 short of Sachin. BTW Sachin had scored 60 hundreds at his age (at 7.20 innings/hundred). Virat has taken 6.73 innings for each hundred.#INDvSL #INDvsSL

Virat Kohli has been rested for the ODI series but he is playing this test match like it's an ODI. #IndvSL

Sometimes you get to see a batsman in complete control of a situation, almost looking invincible. At this stage, Virat Kohli is in that zone.

The greatest batsman of his generation. He is on a different level to any current batsmen – @imVkohli!

Back to back Test hundreds for Murali Vijay… just what Indian cricket fans wanted to see before Cape Town. Dhawan/Rahul to toss a coin for that second spot on Jan 5 then. #IndvSL

What a dominating session by India. After 2 sessions scoring at 4.3 rpo. Virat looking in ominous form and a wonderful back to back century from Murali Vijay. Total control.
