IND vs SL: India 109/2 at Lunch, as the opening duo get out cheaply

Virat and Hanuma are standing strong at Lunch.

Team India has crossed 100- run mark in the early morning session before the umpires announced Lunch Break.

Rohit Sharma intended to pull the short delivery but instead gave away his wicket to the deep square leg fielder who stood as the bowler planned to take down the skipper’s wicket.

India saw a new name at the position of number 3, as Hanuma Vihari made a comeback to the international side as BCCI drops Pujara and Rahane for this test series.

Soon after Rohit’s wicket, Mayank was given out by the umpire, and without hesitation, Mayank walked back to the pavilion.

With India at the loss of two wickets, Virat Kohli walked out to bat as the crowd continuously chanted Kohli, appreciating him for his 100th Test and also anticipating a big score from him.

The initial delivery struck an edge from Virat’s bat, which for a moment shocked the fans. Virat soon recovered from the leading edges to a fantastic straight drive.
