The Twitterati were left fuming as the first Test against Sri Lanka was marred by rain and bad light. On top of that, the Indian top order crumbled in front of Suranga Lakmal's, who picked 3 wickets without giving away a run, brilliant bowling. India ended the day with the scoreboard reading 17/3.
Meet Indian cricket team's new weatherman!
Thankfully the covers came off and Playing XI was announced!
No Vijay. And I’d picked him in my playing XI for all three Tests (considering the overseas tours in 2018) irrespective of the outcomes. I obviously know nothing 😱😛 #IndvSL— Aakash Chopra (@cricketaakash) November 16, 2017
Many fans were questioning the absence of Vijay.
India did not get off to a good start!

Tim Paine is the 2017 Ashes keeper and Suranga Lakmal has three for none swinging it sideways in India. This universe is all sorts of backwards.— Ethan (@ethan_meldrum) November 16, 2017
Good guy Lakmal!

Day 1 in a nutshell!
Seems the first day of play has been dominated by rain, bad light and Lakmal. #INDvSL— Shantanu Smart (@smartshantanu) November 16, 2017
