India Vs Sri Lanka 3rd Test Day 1
It’s stumps on day 1. Sri Lanka have ended the day with something to cheer, but really, it’s been another day dominated by the Indian batsmen. Hundreds from Vijay and Kohli have powered the hosts into a commanding position from where they can control this Test match, like they did the previous one. Apart from Sandakan, who did trouble Vijay occassionally, Sri Lanka didn’t seem like having a chance of breaking the third-wicket partnership which went about its merry way right from the word go. In the process, Kohli brought up his fastest Test hundred – off 110 balls – and Vijay all but guaranteed his spot as India’s opener for South Africa. Sri Lanka’s left-arm chinaman did get the success he deserved towards the end, but it may not be enough to deter India’s course. Join us back tomorrow to see if Kohli can make it back-to-back double hundreds. Until then, it’s goodbye!
