The Twitterati, along with the Sri Lankan cricket team, were "put to sleep" by the marathon 209-run partnership between Cheteshwar Pujara and Murali Vijay for the second wicket. After Vijay departed, Virat Kohli joined the party and helped India put up a total of 312/2 at the end of Day 2.
Brief Scores : Sri Lanka 205/10 (Dinesh Chandimal 57, Dimuth Karunaratne 51; R Ashwin 4/67, R Jadeja 3/56) trail India 312/2 (Murali Vijay 128, Cheteshwar Pujara 121* ; P Gamage 1/47, Rangana Herath 1/45) by 107 runs.
Here are the tweets from the game:
Couldn't describe their batting better than this! What a start to day 2!
Murali Vijay does it so easily! Can't believe that he just came back from an injury!
I would pay money to watch a Murali Vijay cover drive. Heck I will pay money to watch him leave an outswinger. #IndvSL— cricBC (@cricBC) November 25, 2017
So, what type of food
Sehwag scoring hundred in a session is fast food. Quick, useful, tasty.— cricBC (@cricBC) November 25, 2017
Pujara taking an entire day for a hundred is slow cooked Biriyani. Timeless and eternally delectable.
Meanwhile, Indian fans
Rohit Sharma right now....
A nightmare pair for opposition bowlers.
The waiting game is real!
Patience level: Watching and waiting for Pujara to go from 90s to 100.— Trendulkar (@Trendulkar) November 25, 2017
Then this happened!
Kohli just "lapped" Pujara while running 3. Haha! #INDvSL— Vinayakk (@vinayakkm) November 25, 2017
Virat Kohli joins the party!
