IND vs SL 1st Test India scored 357 runs on day one Pant Vihari hits fifty Kohli bowled for 45 runs


India scored 357 for six in their first innings on the first day of the first Test against Sri Lanka on Friday. For India, Rishabh Pant scored 96, Hanuma Vihari scored 58, while Virat Kohli, playing his 100th Test, scored 45 runs. At the end of the day’s play, Ravindra Jadeja was playing 45 while Ravichandran Ashwin scored 10 runs. Lasith Ambuldeniya took two wickets for Sri Lanka.

Virat Kohli disappointed fans despite a decent start in his historic 100th Test, but India managed 357 for five against Sri Lanka at stumps on the first day of the first Test. When ‘King Kohli’ came to bat from the dressing room at exactly 11 o’clock in the morning after the dismissal of opener Mayank Agarwal, about 5000 spectators present on the field cheered him fiercely.

Kohli started with a straight boundary off left-arm pacer Vishwa Fernando. He looked in good touch during his innings of 45 off 76 balls. He hit five fours in his innings and during this time he also completed eight thousand runs in Test cricket.

The ball, which was spinning on the leg side of left-arm spinner Lasith Ambuldeniya, however, missed the ball and the ball dropped the bails of his off-stump. After this, there was complete silence in the stadium for some time.

Hanuma Vihari, who came in to bat at number three in place of Cheteshwar Pujara, took advantage of the opportunity and scored 58 runs in 128 balls and added 90 runs for the third wicket with Kohli.
