Former Indian skipper, Virat Kohli who is playing his 100th Test match was dismissed by Sri Lanka’s spinner Lasith Embuldeniya in the first inning of the ongoing match at the PCA stadium in Mohali. After having won the toss the Indian skipper,  Rohit Sharma opted to bat against the visitors in the first Test match of the series.

 Indian openers Mayank Agarwal and Rohit Sharma gave India a brisk start but they both failed to make the most of the starts they had got in the first innings. Following the wicket of Mayank Agarwal in the 19th over bowled by Lasith Embuldeniya, Virat Kohli walked out to bat to a rousing ovation in the Mohali stadium.

Former Indian skipper again looked in good form as he struck boundaries with ease and looked threatening against the Sri Lanka bowlers.

However, in the 43rd over of India’s first innings, Lasith Embuldeniya bowled a fuller-length ball around his off-stump and it spun just enough to beat the outside edge of Virat Kohli’s bat which resulted in him being clean bowled. Kohli played a decent knock of 45 runs from 76 balls and struck 5 boundaries during his stay.
