Sri Lanka set a target of 386 runs, were bowled out for 268 on the final day here in Colombo to hand the tourists a 2-1 series triumph.
Indian skipper Virat Kohli has his first series win as a captain ever since the 26-year-old batsman took over reins of the national team from the veteran MS Dhoni.
Here are the some of the best reaction from the professionals to India’s 2-1 triumph in the Island nation.

Virat Kohli (26 years 300 days) has become youngest India captain to win away series, beating Tiger Pataudi, 27, who won in NZ in 1968.
