Flourishing Kohli-Vijay stand deflates Sri Lanka

Flourishing Kohli-Vijay stand deflates Sri Lanka

Murali Vijay hit a century and skipper Virat Kohli powered past a new scoring landmark as India made 245-2 by tea on the opening day of the third Test against Sri Lanka on Saturday.

But it was Vijay, who set the pace for India on the first day.

Kohli, who hit 104 not out in the first test in Kolkata and 213 in Nagpur, joined the 5,000-test run club in his 105th innings and was batting on 94, having won the toss and opted to bat on a track pregnant with runs.

Dhawan could not make the most of the opportunity, though, his attempted sweep shot off Dilruwan Perera finding Suranga Lakmal at deep square leg.

NC State rolls to easy win over South Carolina State
Players from both teams left the court briefly but were brought back out to warm up before continuing the game. Thankfully, Solomon was stable and responsive in the locker room, and he was taken to Rex Hospital.


His 50 came in the 37th over that had three more boundaries in it and all he needed was just 52 deliveries to reach the milestone as another long day awaited Sri Lanka. It was recently when the cricketer completed his 50th global century in style in the first test match against Sri Lanka then in the second Test match the cricketer equals the record of Rahul Dravid by completing his 5th Test double century in the longest format of the game. The pair put on an unbeaten 167 as Sri Lanka again suffered on their India tour. Playing in his 63rd Test, the 29-year-old also became the 11th Indian batsman to achieve the milestone, when he reached 25 during India's first innings.

Just as Vijay reached the 150 run mark, a exhausted shot saw him get stumped off Sandakan, who also got Ajinkya Rahane (1) in his next over.

At Stumps on Day 1, Kohli was standing at the crease like a pillar at the individual score of 156 off only 186 deliveries with 16 boundaries, and was accompanied by the very calm Rohit Sharma (6 off 14, 1 four).
