IND vs SL: Watch – Virat Kohli’s Tough Run Continues, Gets An Unplayable Delivery In Bengaluru Test

Indian batter Virat Kohli had another tough end to his innings as he received an unplayable delivery that stayed extremely low on Day 1 of the Bengaluru Test which got underway on Saturday.

The pink-ball Test was expected to garner a lot of attention as the concept is relatively new in India and it is just the third day-night game here. Therefore, the behavior of the surface and the ball is still unpredictable, as Kohli found out.

Dhananjaya de Silva was brought on and he struck gold in his very first over. He bowled a delivery on a good length to which Kohli rocked back. Unfortunately, the ball stayed extremely low and also turned viciously.

He was caught plumb in front of the wicket with no hopes of being saved by the review. Kohli smiled but the pain was quite visible as his wait for the elusive 71st international century continues.

Earlier, India opted to bat first but was off to a terrible start. They lost Mayank Agarwal in a comical fashion. He was run out off a no-ball after surviving a close LBW call on the same delivery.

Rohit Sharma was undone by turn as Lasith Embuldeniya managed to breakthrough. At 29/2, the hosts were in trouble before Hanuma Vihari and Kohli bailed them out. The former fell before Lunch as he received a delivery that turned and bounced sharply before Kohli also fell, as India lost four wickets inside the first session.
