Rahul Dravid urges India's U-19 players to match Virat Kohli's consistency

Indian slip cordon was in a very generous miid against Sri Lanka

Kohli, who slammed back-to-back double-centuries and recorded three-figure scores in three consecutive matches, started the series in sixth position but has leapfrogged David Warner, Cheteshwar Pujara, Kane Williamson and Joe Root after the stupendous run.

3- Players who have scored more than 600 runs in a series batting five or fewer innings.

"I don't want to make that moment".

It's not just Test cricket but ODIs and T20s as well. "We finally learned how to face such conditions in the future", said Chandimal.

At its peak, concentrations of the smallest and most harmful pollution particles were at 18 times the World Health Organization's safe limit, according to the U.S. embassy website. At least three catches were put down at second slip in the first innings at the Kotla, and on all three occasions, a different fielder was stationed in that position.

"To be honest we haven't fielded well in the slips. Overall, Indian team has improved as a fielding unit but slip fielding is something we are still looking to improve".

Ademola Lookman at the double as Everton finally win in Europa
Fraser Hornby - Strong in the air and with a keen eye for goal, Hornby was a star performer for the Blues' Under-18s last season. Everton have a long way to go before they can compete with Liverpool, both on the pitch and financially.

"All those players who were standing in the slips, they are taking about 50-100 catches every day".

The batsmen have been in great form, though, with Pujara finishing as the highest run-getter in Tests in 2017, and Kohli racking up the runs on a regular basis. "We will discuss when we reach South Africa but we are already talking about that", Pujara said.

"When we're talking about defining a fielding position, Ajinkya [Rahane] has been fielding at gully for quite a long time", Pujara said. There is a lot of pressure on players but that is same for all teams. I think our fast bowlers will do the damage. Kohli explained the rationale behind him asking the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for a break ahead of the South Africa series.

Virat Kohli's current form and the experience of majority of the players in the squad would help India do well in their upcoming tour of South Africa, feels former India captain Rahul Dravid. "This period, I will use to become a good ODI player", said the skipper.

The spinners managed only two Sri Lankan wickets on the fifth day of the third Test, with Ashwin (1/126 in 35 overs) and Jadeja (1/81 in 38 overs) bowling 73 out of the 103 overs in the second innings, giving away 207 runs. One way to answer that question would be to compare Kohli's batting record with that of former Indian batting maestro, Sachin Tendulkar, whose prolific run-scoring ability would often power India's performances in the past. "That was something I always hesitated to do but this made me realise that you can push the game forward even in Test cricket", Kohli said after the match.
