New Delhi: Under the aggressive captaincy of Virat Kohli, Team India crushed Sri Lanka in the third Test to seal the series on Lankan soil after a gap of 22 years.
The last time an Indian team won a series in Sri Lanka was way back in 1993 under Mohammed Azharuddin's leadership, when they sealed the series with 1-0 scoreline.
Most of the former and current Indian cricketers looked delighted after India clinched the series 2-1 in emphatic fashion and couldn't stop themselves from sharing their excitement via social micro-blogging site Twitter.
Most of the cricketers wished skipper Kohli for his maiden Test series win as captain and the team for their historic win.
Here are few interesting tweets by the cricketers.
