As the Team India’s almost two months long tour of Sri Lanka is about to finish, captain Virat Kohli praised the Cricket loving nation and the spirit of the supporters.

“love stepping out here, people give you space, they love you appreciate what you do but they never intrude your privacy” Virat Kohli said on Sri Lanka after whitewash in ODI series.

Through out the tour, Indian players looked in a relax and happy mood, as they often stepped out for outside dinners, parties and to visit beautiful sceneries of Sri Lanka.

During the test series, team India’s pacers Umesh Yadav, Wridhiman Shaha, Ishant Sharma and Mohammed Shami even visited ‘Ashok Vatika’ with their families, one of the Most popular place of worship for millions of Indians, as it was the staying place of Goddess Sita.

    Thank you Kholi for entertaining us. At the end even though SL played very much lower than their potential still at the end "CRICKET" is the winner

    This is a golden opportunity for Sri Lanka Tourism to promote Sri Lanka as the closest tourist destination to India in India.

    Citizen Perera Tuesday, 05 September 2017 03:35 PM

    Ranjan Fernando Wednesday, 06 September 2017 09:06 AM

    And an attemt to establish a mono ethnic fascist country in part of Sri Lanka

    Sara Goyya Tuesday, 05 September 2017 11:10 PM

    Look Ceylon, such qualities are prevalent in many 'multi ethnic' societies in the developing world. What is appreciative in Kholi's comments is that Indian players didn't feel insecure or threatened when they visited public places

    I wonder what he would have said if he lost the series. Naw,I guess he would have said something nice about us, arrogant but not a bad guy after all!

    Dhammika Tuesday, 05 September 2017 05:20 PM

    An excellent comment to be used by Sri Lanka Tourism to promote Sri Lanka as an ideal tourist destination for Indians.

    K Chokshanadan Tuesday, 05 September 2017 06:34 PM

    Lets continue to keep this SLC Chairman and his goons for the foreseeable future and loose all matches in a most unique manner so that we can "promote tourism". Lets also try changing the Tourism Board and Chairman with the ICC Board and Chairman!! Only Sri Lankans can come up with such BRILLIANT ideas. And of course, with "committees".

    Desmond Jeromme Wednesday, 06 September 2017 09:14 AM

    Thank you Virat - you are not only a great legend of cricket, but also a nature lover.

    Manuel Benjamin Wednesday, 06 September 2017 09:15 AM

    Kholi, will you win T-20 also? It is not so easy as SriLankan's are good on T-20.

    Janaka Perera Wednesday, 06 September 2017 09:17 AM

    Virat you and your guys are very smart and active.... thanks for your good comments about our nation.

    Kamal De Silva (Tourist guide) Wednesday, 06 September 2017 09:47 AM

    Kholi - thanks a million for your comments about our country, it will surely boost our tourism.

    Jal Perera Wednesday, 06 September 2017 09:49 AM

    Truth comes from a Legend of Cricket world-wide.

    Satha Tuesday, 12 September 2017 10:41 AM

    RolSh Tuesday, 12 September 2017 09:24 PM
