Ton by ton, India continue to dominate Sri Lanka

India vs Sri Lanka 3rd test

India vs Sri Lanka 3rd test

Kohli put on a good partnership with Murali Vijay after Shikhar Dhawan and Cheteshwar Pujara failed to score big. Vijay and Kohli then joined hands and took control of the proceedings.

Playing his 63rd Test, Virat Kohli started off strongly as he flicked a delivery off Lahiru Gamage through mid-wicket to get off the mark with a boundary. So the team that wins the toss here is more likely to bowl first.

Production Halts on Bryan Singer's Queen Biopic 'Bohemian Rhapsody'
The film has been in development for years until Singer was finally able to get approval from the surviving members of Queen . However, though filming seemed to be moving along according to schedule, Fox has now revealed production has halted.

Kohli's innings had the flawless mix of aggression and elegance while Vijay at the other end, kept fending the odd balls to the boundary as the third wicket stand swelled to 283. Kohli, who reached the milestone with a backfoot punch off Suranga Lakmal, became the 11th Indian batsman to reach the figures and is now the fourth fastest in terms of innings.

Cricket great and former Indian skipper Sunil Gavaskar (95) was the fastest Indian to reach the landmark of 5000 runs in the longest format of the game followed by Virender Sehwag (99) and Sachin Tendulkar (103). He also became the first captain to score successive hundreds in a three-match series. The middle-order mainstay of his team came to the defence of misfiring senior batsman Angelo Mathews, saying all the batsmen needed to perform against the rampaging Indian attack after they nearly lost the opening game in Kolkata and crashed by an innings and 239 runs at Nagpur.

United Kingdom 'close to Irish border solution' post-Brexit
A RETURN of border checks between Northern Ireland and the Republic is inevitable after Brexit, a report from MPs has warned. Tusk told Varadkar that the bloc is "fully behind you and your request that there should be no hard border".

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.

He scored an unbeaten 104 in the first Test in Kolkata before scoring a match-winning 213 in Nagpur. Tendulkar tops the list among Indians at 25 years and 301 days.

Vikas becomes the captain again
An interesting moment in the episode was between Luv Tyagi and Priyank where the boys talked about their "friend" Hina Khan . Hina too was named as the villain so even she got a grilling dose from the host for using red chilli powder in the task.
