It is the first test of the 3 match series that started off today morning and ended up with the statistics being 399/3 for team India at the Galle International Stadium, Galle  and the day proved directly into the hands of the team India

 

India won the toss and elected to bat first under the conditions and the decision of batting first proved very fruitful for the team as they marched towards a dominating day 1 in the India vs Sri Lanka test

 

Dhawan and Pujara stole the show by scoring 100 from both the ends and the man in form Dhawan looked in a brilliant touch as he was connecting the ball with the timing and the confidence was seen right on the shots he was playing

 

Dhawan scored a magnificent 190 runs in just 168 balls which by no way it seemed that he was playing a test match, at certain point he definitely reminded us of Sehwag at minor points, this is not it Pujara is still standing tall in the with 144 runs joingn hands with Ajinkya Rahane who is currently on 39 runs with 94 balls he faced 

 

 

It was a tough day for Virat kohli as he couldn’t sound up his innings with the bat and went back to the pavilion scoring just 3 runs for the side, indeed he is a very talented batsmen but players and teams do fail to perform at various points 

 

Stumps, Day 1: One way traffic, without traffic lights, without cops. Such has been the day for India. Says a story in itself when a run-rate of 3.34 in the session is a pulling of proceedings back into the balance. 399 is now the highest India have amassed on the first day in an away Test. Wow. Take Dhawan's blitz out of the equation, or had Asela had his thumb in good shape with the catch and the ability to bowl, Sri Lanka wouldn't quite have complained. Only if. Such was the carnage he unleashed, threatening to smash all sorts of records, had it not been for that lapse five minutes before tea.
