It was all animated at the Feroz Shah Kotla in Delhi as there were several stoppages of play before an angry Virat Kohli declared the Indian innings on 536/7. The Indian skipper didn’t look happy at the way the game was going post the smog break, and he signalled to Ravindra Jadeja and Wriddhiman Saha to come back as the hosts wanted to have a crack at the visitor’s batting.

Earlier in the 2nd Day, Kohli was trapped by Sandakan as the skipper went back scoring a majestic 243. At one point during the break, the Sri Lankan team manager, India’s head coach and other officials were seen having a word with the umpires. The visiting sides’ pacer Suranga Lakmal left the field after bowling just two deliveries of his 22nd over.

Kohli on a rampage

The Lankans have already lost a wicket as they look to reply to India’s daunting total. It was skipper Kohli’s sixth double hundred in Test cricket and second against Sri Lanka in as many games. Kohli has gone past 500 runs in this series and he will look to end it on a high.

Vijay provides solid start

It all started when opener Murali Vijay provided a solid start to the Indian side on Day 1 in Delhi. Vijay brought up his second consecutive hundred. and he went on to make it a daddy hundred before departing for 155. Rohit Sharma, earlier in the day, looked to follow up on his last hundred in Nagpur with a solid knock here but he perished for 65. Bowling all-rounder Ravichandran Ashwin got dismissed right after the smog break as India lost a few wickets in quick succession.

There were plenty of reactions from followers of the game and we now take a look at how the internet reacted to India’s outstanding performance with the bat-
