India had a disappointing start to the first Test against Sri Lanka at Kolkata’s Eden Gardens after the hosts ended first day’s play at 17/3. Rain kept players indoors for most of the day and only 11.5 overs were bowled. In the little time he was out in the middle, Sri Lanka’s Suranga Lakmal grabbed the spotlight and made the shining red cherry talk.

Lakmal bowled 6 overs in the day and scalped three wickets without giving a single run. India lost opener KL Rahul for a golden duck, Virat Kohli for a duck and Shikhar Dhawan for only eight. Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane remained unbeaten before stumps were called on day one. Here’s what social media had to say about India’s batting performance of first day of the first Test match.
