Ind vs SL, 3rd Test: Kohli, Vijay steer hosts to 371-4 at stumps on Day 1
Sri Lanka started the 3rd Test against India on a good note, by wrapping up a couple of wickets before lunch at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium in New Delhi.
But the hosts have grown in confidence despite an early shock. Murali Vijay and Virat Kohi then boosted the innings with a 281-run partnership, notching their individual 150s, before Sandakan dismissed the opener with a stumping.
Sandakan followed it up by dismissing Ajinkya Rahane.
Kohli and Rohit Sharma will now aim to take India to a respectable score before the end of day's play. The visitors have possessed no threat whatsoever and will aim to change the script post lunch.
