IND vs SL 1st Test Day 1 Highlights: Rishabh Pant was in fantastic form as India posted 357 for six in 85 overs at Stumps against Sri Lanka on Day 1 of the ongoing first Test match at Mohali, on Friday. The wicketkeeper-batter smashed 96 runs off 97 balls and narrowly missed out on a century. His knock which consisted of nine fours and four sixes put India in a strong position, after losing its top-order batters. Initially, Mayank Agarwal and Rohit Sharma put in a good start but lost their wickets after registering 33 and 29 runs respectively. Meanwhile, Hanuma Vihari was dismissed after a half-century and Virat Kohli narrowly missed out on a fifty after crossing 8000 Test runs in his 100th Test match. Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin will resume batting for India on Day 2 and have already registered 45* and 10* runs respectively. Although he was hit for multiple boundaries by Pant, Lasith Embuldeniya bagged two wickets for the visitors. Meanwhile, Suranga Lakmal, Vishwa Fernando, Lahiru Kumara and Dhananjaya de Silva took a dismissal each for Sri Lanka. (SCORECARD)
