IND 426/4 (134.0 Ovs) CRR: 3.18
Day 3: 2nd Session – India lead by 221 runs
Virat Kohli became the first captain ever to score 10 international hundreds in a calendar year when he raised his 19th Test ton – and 12th as captain – to continue’s India’s quest of batting Sri Lanka out of the Nagpur Test on Day 3.
Pujara made most of that situation to stay in the middle for as many as 362 balls – or 60.2 overs – as Dinesh Chandimal turned to each of his bowling options in vain.
Brief scores: Sri Lanka 205 trail India 404/3 (Murali Vijay 128, Cheteshwar Pujara 143, Virat Kohli 123*; Dasun Shanaka 1-62) by 199 runs
