New Delhi:

Despite the early jolts, India scored 385/6 at a brisk pace right through Day 1 of the first Test against Sri Lanka on Monday, but fell just one run short of the record first day total made by them.

India's record for the first day is 386 against South Africa at the Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai in 2007-08.

Rahul Dravid and captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni played a key role in taking India to 385/6 as they cracked sparkling centuries and India staged a remarkable recovery after a dramatic top-order collapse on the opening day.
