India vs Sri Lanka: Vijay rocks, Virat rolls on

The arrival of Kohli in the middle, however, changed the course of the innings as the skipper and Vijay stitched a 283-run third-wicket stand.

Virat Kohli notched his Test career's 20th century and with it became the first captain to score a century in each of a three-match series.

The partnership laid the foundation of a huge total before Vijay departed at the individual score of 155 runs.

The duo of Vijay and Kohli continued from where they left with the Indian skipper scoring back to back boundaries to bring 5,000 Test runs - the fourth fastest for an Indian behind Sunil Gavaskar, Virender Sehwag and Sachin Tendulkar.

Dhawan (23, 35b, 4x4) and Vijay had got the innings off to a brisk start, the first 10 runs producing 40-plus runs.

Cheteshwar Pujara was the second casualty as he was caught at leg slip for 23 off pacer Lahiru Gamage scoring 23.

The second session was a microcosm of a series dominated by the hosts as India scored at more than four runs an over to reach 245 for two at tea with Sri Lanka struggling to stem a flood of boundaries at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium. They looked good to take India through unbeaten to close of play but a late lapse of concentration ended the partnership when Vijay (153, 267b, 13x4) was beaten off the pitch by Chinaman bowler Sandakan and had his right foot on - and not behind - the crease as Niroshan Dickwella competed a smart stumping.

Kohli, who hit 104 not out in the first test in Kolkata and 213 in Nagpur, joined the 5,000-test run club in his 105th innings and was batting on 94, having won the toss and opted to bat on a track pregnant with runs.

But it was Vijay, who set the pace for India on the first day. Currently, India is 1-0 up in the three-Test series.
