The live streaming of India vs Sri Lanka 1st Test match at Eden Gardens in Kolkata on day 5 will start at 9:00 AM IST. After delivering a quality performance on day four with the bat and ball, Virat Kohli-led Team India will look for a chance to end the game in their favour. After bundling the Lankans on 294, India had an outstanding start in the second innings. A marathon opening stand from KL Rahul and Shikhar Dhawan put the team back on track and added a total of 166 runs for the first wicket. Both of them scored their respective half-centuries however, Dhawan wasn’t that fortunate to get his 7th Test ton. He got out on 94 after which Cheteshwar Pujara came into bat at no.3.
Now Pujara enters the club of batsmen who have batted on all the 5 days of a Test match. On the other hand, KL Rahul is playing on 73 and India will resume their game from 171/1 on day 5.
Sri Lankan team have never won any Test match on Indian soil. During this tour, Lankans would certainly like to change the stats. Since their first Test tour in 1982, Sri Lankans have met Indians 17 times in India. India have won 10 while the rest ended up in a draw.
