Virat Kohli hit a century to lead India to a 67-run victory over Sri Lanka in the first of three one-day internationals in Guwahati on Tuesday. Kohli scored 113 runs in 87 balls, hitting 12 fours and a six. It was the former captain’s 45th ODI century, putting him only four short of Sachin Tendulkar’s all-time record.
After being called in to bat first, India’s innings ended at 373-7, with captain Rohit Sharma scoring 83 and Shubman Gill scoring 70.
In response, Sri Lanka skipper Dasun Shanaka produced an undefeated 108, while opener Pathum Nissanka made a decent 72, but it was insufficient as the visitors were unable to chase the large mark.
