Kohli's 183-run third-wicket stand with his overnight partner Cheteshwar Pujara had taken the steam out of the attack. Pujara was bowled by paceman Dasun Shanaka for 143 in the first session, but Kohli kept scoring quickly in his team's bid to bat just once in the match. Ajinkya Rahane, who was out to Perera for two, and opener Lokesh Rahul were the only two specialist batsmen to miss the Indian run fest of one double century and three centuries. After the early departure of Rahul on day one, Murali Vijay (128) and Pujara had put India in the driving seat with their 209-run second-wicket partnership. The first match of the series was hit by rain and ended in a draw in Kolkata.
