Rishabh Pant and Iyer mistook the pink-ball as white ball and played a T20 knock. Pant’s 27-ball 39 helped India take the fight back to Sri Lanka. However, his whirlwind knock didn’t last long as he was cleaned up by Lasith Embuldeniya off a sharp turning delivery.

But Shreyas Iyer continued his impressive form. He anchored the innings from one end and tried building partnerships with Ravichandran Ashwin. He too scored a record pace, bringing up his half-century with a six to steady India. However, he would be ruing missing out on a well-deserved century after falling on 92. Lasith Embuldeniya and Praveen Jayawickrama were the most successful Lankan bowlers with three wickets each.

Earlier in the day Rohit Sharma won the toss and opted to bat first in his maiden Day-Night Test as a captain but his team got off to the worst possible start as a local lad and opener Mayank Agarwal was dismissed run out by Praveen Jayawickrama for 4 in the second over of the match with a score of only 10 runs on the board.

Spinner Lasith Embuldeniya was introduced into the attack as early as the eighth over and he got the prized scalp of skipper Rohit Sharma in his second over for 15 as India were reduced to 29/2 within 10 overs.

Virat Kohli and Hanuma Vihari then stitched a 47-run partnership but Sri Lankan bowlers kept on persisting and were rewarded with the wicket of Hanuma Vihari for 31. Vihari was dismissed by Praveen Jayawickrama caught behind by Niroshan Dickwella to leave India tottering at 76/3.
