Sri Lanka Test captain Dimuth Karunaratne said it is 'a great honour' for him to be leading his team in their 300th Test match, against India, at the IS Bindra PCA Stadium on Friday. Sri Lanka's 300th Test match coincides with senior India batter Virat Kohli's landmark 100th Test as well as Rohit Sharma's debut as the captain in the red-ball format. Karunaratne further expressed happiness over spectators being allowed to attend the first Test, reversed from the original plan of playing behind closed doors.
"That's a great feeling...captaining in the country's 300th Test. I did not expect it. It is a great honour for me," Dimuth Karunaratne said.#INDvsSL #ViratKohli #DimuthKarunaratne #Cricket https://t.co/7dCBBzo2ox— India Today Sports (@ITGDsports) March 3, 2022
