The Test series between India and Sri Lanka has already started from 4th March in Mohali, Punjab. It is also the 100th Test match of Former Indian Skipper Virat Kohli.
In the 1st Test match of the Test series Indian Captain Rohit Sharma had won the toss and elected to bat first against Sri Lanka. Both the openers provided a good start to the Indian team but soon after India lost both openers in a very short span.
Later, Virat Kohli and Hanuma Vihari built a good partnership. Hanuma Vihari reached fifty on his comeback game, while Virat Kohli was also nearing his half-century.
Sri Lankan Skipper Dimuth Karunaratne brought back left-arm spinner Lasith Embuldeniya into the attack, he was the only bowler who was looking good for Sri Lanka.
Embuldeniya to Virat Kohli:
Virat Kohli was playing on 45(75)*Embuldeniya bowls him a flighted full-length delivery which was supposed to play on the front foot, but due to lapse of concentration Kohli played the ball on the back foot, ball turned quickly and bowled out off-stump of Virat Kohli.

Virat Kohli was shaken and surprised by the ball, But more than Kohli the whole internet was surprised as a fan predicted Virat Kohli’s exact score and his way of dismissal and his reaction afterward.

Will score 45 (100) with 4 gorgeous cover drives and then Embuldeniya will knock his stumps over and he’ll pretend to be shocked 😳😳 and will nod his head in disappointment.”
