Sri Lanka lose openers after Kohli’s 50th ton

In Sport

Virat Kohli brought up his 18th Test century, helping India not only ride out a difficult phase but also putting them in a position from which they can ask their Sri Lankan opponents some posing questions on the final day of the first Test in Kolkata. On the back of his hundred, India declared with 352 for 8, setting Sri Lanka an improbable target of 231 in a maximum of 47 overs. In reply, Sri Lanka lost their openers before they could get their eyes in. At tea, Sri Lanka were 8 for 2.

Kohli’s Eden Gardens record was one that needed some serious work. He had a best of 45 in six innings played here, and had been dismissed for a duck in the previous innings. In the second innings, Kohli redeemed for his past failures with a knock of great importance.
