India 12-1 (3 ovs) & 536-7d vs SL 373 | Scorecard

India's openers Murali Vijay and Shikhar Dhawan have walked out without any masks as the hosts have been doing for the past four days.

But some of the Sri Lankan players are sporting masks to counter the pollution in Delhi.Suranga Lakmal right on the mark at the start as the first ball is pitched right up to right-hander Murali Vijay and moves away.
Vijay leaves the first two balls before he smashes a short ball through the covers for a four to get off the mark.The next ball is fuller as Vijay looks to drive but gets a thick outside edge for another boundary past the gully fielder.

Lahiru Gamage to bowl the second over. Shikhar Dhawan taps the first ball on the off-side for a single to get off the mark.

Vijay looking to be positive as he chases a wide delivery outside the off-stump but is beaten. He keeps strike with a single from the last ball.

Vijay takes his time early on and leaves a lot of deliveries but in this innings he is chasing everything. Maybe India are looking to be positive and score quick runs.

Vijay again flashes at a wide delivery but this time he gets an edge and is caught behind for nine.

A good move from India as they promote the struggling Ajinkya Rahane to No. 3. He gets off the mark with a single on the leg side and Dhawan slaps a wide delivery to deep point for one.
