Flourishing Kohli-Vijay stand deflates Sri Lanka

Flourishing Kohli-Vijay stand deflates Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka captain Dinesh Chandimal on Friday said they would miss the experience and guile of left-arm spinner Rangana Herath as the visitors seek to hold Virat Kohli's India at bay at the third Test that gets under way at the Kotla here on Saturday. The milestones kept coming for Kohli as he reached 3,000 Test runs as captain and also the 250 run partnership came.

Virat Kohli remained unbeaten after scoring 156, which included 16 fours, as India were 371/4 at stumps on Day 1.

Dhawan fell in the 10th over when he holed out to deep square leg and it was also Perera's 100th scalp in Test cricket while Pujara nudged one to leg gully. The local player made his intentions clear by hitting three fours before lunch.

Cheteshwar Pujara was the second man out, caught at leg slip for 23 after flicking a sliding delivery from paceman Lahiru Gamage.

Kohli, however, was simply unstoppable as the right-hander scored at almost a run a ball, treating the weekend crowd to some exciting shot-making.

At stumps Vijy was batting with 132 and Kohli 118.

Vijay then brought up his 11th test century with a ninth boundary, celebrating the feat with a little jig.

The right-hander, who scored 128 in Nagpur, hit 13 boundaries in his elegant 155 before a lapse in concentration.

India won the toss and chose to bat first without any hesitation on a Feroz Shah Kotla pitch that had decent grass on it. "Doctors will see him tomorrow morning and decide whether he'll play tomorrow or not", Gurusinghe added.
