India vs Sri Lanka 1st Test Day: Virat Kohli was shocked by a sharp turn and stared at the pitch as the Sri Lankans were celebrating. A replay of the dismissal showed the reaction of captain Rohit Sharma, who also looked shocked.

Virat Kohli may not have scored a century in Test cricket since November 2019, but the former India captain has rarely been out of form. Kohli has played some good innings since then and lost his wicket at a time when no one expected him to. When he walked out to bat in Mohali on the first day of India’s first Test against Sri Lanka, his focus was usually on himself.

The fact that he was playing his 100th Test match didn’t really matter as Kohli wanted to take India in a strong position with Hanuma Vihari. Kohli wielded caution with aggression and played some blistering shots against both spinners and fast bowlers to enter the 40s.

Kohli was caught on an individual score of 45 off left-arm spinner Lasith Embuldeniya. The flat trajectory of the ball meant that Kohli went on the backfoot to play the ball, but he reacts in time as the ball spins long enough to hit his off-stump.

Kohli was surprised by the sharp turn and kept looking at the pitch even as the Sri Lankans were celebrating. A replay of the dismissal showed the reaction of captain Rohit Sharma, who also looked shocked.

Rohit himself was dismissed for 29 earlier in the day. Rohit’s reaction showed how much everyone in the Indian team wants Virat to be successful in his 100th Test and wants him to go ahead and score big.

India however find themselves in a good position after Rishabh Pant’s combative 96 as the hosts finished the first day on 257/6, with Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin unbeaten at the crease.
