Bangalore: On the first day of the Day-Night Test between India and Sri Lanka, something happened in the 12th over of the visiting team’s innings, which no one was sure of except the wicketkeeper (Rishabh Pant DRS). He assured the captain (Rohit Sharma DRS) here many times that he was right and after the result of DRS came, he was proved right. Sri Lankan batsman Dhananjay de Silva () had to be dismissed. Every player looked surprised after getting the wicket. Actually, Mohammed Shami’s last ball of the 12th over. The ball hit the pads of Dhananjay de Silva and wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant started appealing strongly. Though Shami was not in confidence, Pant wanted the DRS to be taken. He tried to convey the captain Rohit Sharma standing in sleep. Rohit felt that the ball was hitting the pads and may have left the stumps. The commentators also believed the same. Pant was completely adamant here. On the other hand, Shami also did not believe it. The countdown was about to end. Final Rohit Sharma took DRS at the last moment. What happened after that was astonishing. The ball hit the upper part of the pad, but it was seen flying off the leg-stump. Field umpire Nitin Menon had to reverse the decision. Silva was dismissed for 10 runs in 24 balls. Talking about the first day of the match, after Shreyas Iyer’s big half-century on a difficult pitch for batting, after India scored 252 runs with Jasprit Bumrah’s sharp bowling, Sri Lanka’s score was 86 for six in the second day of cricket. He kept his upper hand on the first day. 16 wickets fell on the first day of the match, which is a new record for most wickets in a day in a day-night Test. While the Indian batsmen were troubled by the turn and uneven bounce of the Sri Lankan spinners, the visiting team’s batsmen were troubled by the fast bowlers of the host team. The fast bowling pair of Jasprit Bumrah (3 for 15) and Mohammed Shami (2 for 18) kept the visiting team’s troubles intact on the current tour while left-arm spinner Axar Patel (21 for one) also made a comeback. Took a wicket. At the end of the day’s play, Niroshan Dickwella was playing on 13 while Lasith Ambuldeniya is yet to open the account. Sri Lanka’s team is still trailing by 166 runs with only four wickets left.
