The Twitterati went mental as Virat Kohli and Murali Vijay took turns while thrashing the Sri Lankan bowlers who were clueless throughout the day. After the early departures of Shikhar Dhawan and Cheteshwar Pujara, Kohli and Vijay steadied the ship and guided India to a solid total of 371 on Day 1.
Here are the funny tweets from the day's action:
It did not start off well for India!
Both Pujara and Dhawan were looking good but departed cheaply..— Akshay Kumar Sahu (@imsahuakshay) December 2, 2017
Every Indian fan after watching both of them depart!
Ishant Sharma would score a century on this wicket...Dhawan and Pujara might castrate themselves as punishment for failing to do so.. #indvsl— Man of Justice (@SuperGops) December 2, 2017
Why you do this Laxman!
Laxman says Kohli will get a triple hundred tomorrow. He'd said Pujara would get a double in the last match. Jinxed it! 🙄 #IndvsSL— Sohini (@Mittermaniac) December 2, 2017
But it was just the beginning!
Back to Back tons for Murali Vijay. Has pretty much nailed his spot for the SA series, has he should have, never a doubt about his class. Now to make this a huge score. Bat on. #INDvSL— Nikhil 🏏 (@CricCrazyNIKS) December 2, 2017
I was happy until he did this! -_-
33 year old Murali Vijay and 29 year old Virat Kohli scoring hundreds and double hundreds - Very Cool.— John Raphael (@RaphaelJohn13) December 2, 2017
33 year old Murali Vijay and 29 year old Virat Kohli doing the dab - Cringy!
Clearly, the football fever has hit the cricketers!
Oh no! Murali Vijay celebrated his ton with that shitty wacko Griezmann celebration and then made it worse with a dab, even forcing Kohli to do it. So they are supporting France at #Russia2018 now? 😢 #IndvSL— Andre deCunha (@andredecunha) December 2, 2017
First Vijay then Pujara and now Kohli 💯 #INDvSL— Vish (@imvish31) November 26, 2017
Print it already!
Government of India should start printing 100 rupee notes as a tribute to Virat Kohli. pic.twitter.com/ttnYyDi8yT— PhD in Bakchodi (@Atheist_Krishna) December 2, 2017

Following his master!
Virat Kohli is making sure BCCI retires number 18 Jersey too after his retirement.— Silly Point 🏏 (@FarziCricketer) December 2, 2017
King Kohli makes another ton.— James Overratedson (@DennisCricket_) December 2, 2017
At home. #Indvsl
This guy can't stop breaking records!
VIRAT KOHLI's consecutive centuries as Test captain:— Sampath Bandarupalli (@SampathStats) December 2, 2017
3 vs Australia, 2014/15 (115, 141, 147)
3* vs Sri Lanka, 2017/18 (104*, 213, 100*)
He is the FIRST CAPTAIN in TEST history to score 100s in three consecutive innings on two different occasions. #INDvSL
Should've done before the carnage began! Now you can't escape it, Sri Lanka! :P
Sri Lanka could have requested BCCI to rest Kohli for 3rd Test also...— Broken Pundit (@Brokenpundit) December 2, 2017
Would've been a better game than this
Ideal preparation for SA would have been to pick top 30 long format probables, form two teams and play a Challenger kind of series on pitches similar to SA. This SL team can't give quality competition to our current team any day.#INDvSL— Krishna 🏏 (@Cric_Lama) December 2, 2017
