Mohali, The ongoing first Test between India and Sri Lanka has two Indian cricket superstars reaching significant career milestones. Virat Kohli is playing his 100th Test match, and Rohit Sharma is captaining his first Test match. In a contest with such a backdrop, the majority of the Indian hitters performed admirably. The flat Mohali surface provided Mayank, Rohit, Vihari, Kohli, Pant, Shreyas, and Jadeja with a piece of cake.

On Rohit Sharma’s first Test captaincy appearance, India won the toss and elected to bat first. Mayank Agarwal and Rohit Sharma, the Indian openers, started attacking right away, putting on a 52-run partnership in 59 balls. The fans applauded Virat Kohli when he batted in his 100th Test after both were dismissed for similar scores.

Hanuma Vihari, who was playing his 100th first-class match, shared a good 90-run partnership. Sri Lanka then fought back by taking the wickets of both Kohli and Vihari, who were both established batsmen. But it was Rishabh Pant, who batted in his own style, who hit 96 (97) and stole the show. On the other end, the help he received from Shreyas Iyer and Ravindra Jadeja was vital. As a result, India ended Day 1 with a score of 357/6.
