New Delhi: The first match of the 2-Test series between India and Sri Lanka is starting from Friday. The Mohali ground is going to witness the first test between the two countries. Full preparations have been made for this. To make this historic test even more special, 50 percent of the spectators at the same time have also been allowed to enter the stadium. That is, if records are made now, then the noise will also resonate in the field. Let us tell you that this match is going to be very important in three ways.
Virat Kohli's 100th Test: If there is one thing most about Mohali Test, it is that this match will be Virat Kohli's 100th Test. To make his 100th Test special, Virat Kohli is engaged in practice wholeheartedly. He is seen sweating on the nets of Mohali since last Sunday. Now whether this hard work translates into 71st century on the field, only time will tell. But, if it happens, then nothing will be better than this.
Captain Rohit Sharma's first test: Rohit Sharma has so far shown the trailer of his captaincy in white ball cricket. But, this will be Rohit's first Test match as captain in red ball cricket. Rohit Sharma is going to make his captaincy debut in this format of cricket from the first Test match to be played in Mohali. Now even if you win in this, then it will be icing on the gold.
Sri Lanka's 300th Test: An achievement will also be recorded in the name of Sri Lanka as soon as they land at Mohali and that is that it will be Sri Lanka's 300th Test. The Mohali Test will be the 300th Test match to be played in the history of Sri Lankan cricket, in which Dimuth Karunaratne will be seen handling it.
