Commentary

  , Herath to Pujara, no run, almost a run-out but Kohli sends Pujara back just early and very loudly. The batsman leapt down the track and drove to mid-off, then he was setting off with the shot. No single there, though and though it was the batsman;s call, Kohli refuses rightly
  , Herath to Pujara, no run, that stays low, but Pujara is able to connect with the arm ball and pick it away to short midwicket
  , Herath to Kohli, 1 run, flighted on the pads, Kohli works it away behind square leg
  , Herath to Kohli, no run, tossed up on off stump, Kohli smothers it on the front foot
  , Herath to Kohli, FOUR, good length ball sliding down leg, Kohli tries a flick, but it clips the top of his pad and thigh pad and goes to the fine leg boundary
  , Herath to Pujara, 1 run, flighted in on middle and leg, whipped away past short midwicket
  , Prasad to Kohli, no run, ripper, Kohli is beaten soundly. It is back of a length, kicks up off the deck and moves away to shave past the outside edge
  , Prasad to Kohli, no run, back of a length and outside off, leaves it having received a shock the last ball
  , Prasad to Kohli, no run, falls short of slip and yet this was a full-blooded drive. A thick edge is taken as Kohli is sucked into a very wide delivery. Thick edge is taken, but it dies going to first slip
  , Prasad to Kohli, no run, back of a length and outside off, Kohli moves across to cover his off stump before shouldering arms. And then Dhammika pats the back of his neck. Not looking 100% yet
  , Prasad to Pujara, 1 run, straightens off the deck, but Pujara has controlled this very well. Went back, dropped it into the covers with soft hands, and sets off to the other end
  , Prasad to Pujara, no run, hits a good length straight away, but it is just wide enough that Pujara can leave it. Looks like this one was not hte indipper
  , Mathews to Pujara, 1 run, opens the face to squeeze a good length ball past point. Fielder dived to his left to try and stop Pujara getting the single, but he cant stop it
  , Mathews to Pujara, no run, fuller delivery outside off, defended into the covers
  , Mathews to Pujara, no run, steps forward and defends with bat and pad close as he takes care of a good length ball outside off
  , Mathews to Pujara, no run, a shade more bounce there, but with his slower pace, Pujara can adjust midway into his back foot defensive on and around off stump
  , Mathews to Pujara, 2 runs, lets the good length ball come on, meets it under his eyes and runs it past gully for a few runs to third man. Nice work
  , Mathews to Pujara, no run, brilliant delivery from the captain. Hits a fullish length, probes away outside off and gets the ball to straighten away from the angle into the right-hander. Pujara survives because he doesnt push at the ball
  , Pradeep to Kohli, no run, goes fuller there, and Kohli whips it from off stump to short midwicket. That is the first hour done, and out come the drinks
  , Pradeep to Kohli, no run, back of a length and outside off, defended to gully, I think
  , Pradeep to Kohli, no run, good length ball just outside off, nudged towards mid-on
  , Pradeep to Kohli, no run, lovely bowling in the corridor, but perhaps he might want to push the ball an few inches fuller and a little bit closer to off stump. And as much bounce as he is getting, it is working against him. Kohli has left this outside off very comfortably
  , Pradeep to Kohli, no run, shortish and quick on off stump, defended stoutly
  , Pradeep to Pujara, 1 run, back of a length and outside off, slid into the covers and though Pujara had been on the back foot not to mention those wobbly knees, he is alive to the quick single
  , Mathews to Kohli, no run, good length ball just outside off, defended
  , Mathews to Kohli, no run, gets nicely behind the line of a back of a length delivery and blocks. Mathews is a little lazy in collecting it and Kohli is eager to pinch a run before the ball reaches mid-off. His partner though had shut down and was not aware of the opportunity. Although that might have been well enough, seeing as things could have become dicey had they gone for the single
  , Mathews to Kohli, no run, good length ball on and around off stump, worked to short midwicket
  , Mathews to Kohli, no run, good length on fifth stump, carefully defended
  , Mathews to Kohli, no run, teasing fuller length outside off, Kohli might have thrown his bat at it in T20s, but he has curbed those instincts here
  , Mathews to Kohli, no run, good length, with some awayswing from Mathews. Kohli has sized the line to not be threatening the stumps and leaves
