The Indian cricket team is currently in Sri Lanka but that didn't stop them from wishing their sisters via social media and be part of the celebrations.
So far, it has been a perfect showing from Team India in Sri Lanka so far as they sealed the Test series 2-0 following their victory in the second match in Colombo, on Sunday.
