Roshen Silva has scored over 6,000 runs in more than 100 first-class matches before he was awarded his Test debut here in Delhi. Sri Lanka ended the day at 299/5, 111 short of the 410-run target, when play was ended eight overs before the regulation time. For the record, Sri Lanka could have become the first visiting team to have scored 300 twice in the same Test here. India skipper Virat Kohli ran out of ideas and was left frustrated by the Sri Lankan batting prowess. But it shows how much Roshen managed to convince the Sri Lankan think-tank about his abilities after 103 first-class outings.
