Kohli, Vijay centuries
put India in control
HYDERABAD---Virat Kohli scored
his 16th Test century and Mura-
li Vijay his 15th as India reached
356-3 at stumps yesterday on the
first day of the one-off cricket
Test against Bangladesh.
Skipper Kohli was unbeaten on 111
runs, while Ajinkya Rahane was not
out 45 after India won the toss.
After the tea break, Kohli and
Vijay (108) added 28 runs to their
third-wicket partnership, putting
on 54 runs in total.
Vijay brought up his century off
149 balls, including 11 fours and a six.
At the other end, Kohli was in cruise
mode as he notched up his half-cen-
tury off 70 balls.
But Vijay was out soon out, bowled
round his legs by Taijul Islam (1-50)
in the 64th over.
Like other batsmen before him, Ra-
hane was comfortable at the crease
as the Bangladesh attack posed little
threat on a first-day pitch.
Kohli and Rahane put on 50 off 97
balls, and later brought up the 100-
run stand off 138 balls.
Vijay shared a 178-run sec-
ond-wicket partnership with Chete-
shwar Pujara after Bangladesh snared
a wicket in the first over of their first
test on Indian soil.
Opener Lokesh Rahul (2) was
bowled after getting an inside edge
off Taskin Ahmed.
Vijay had a reprieve when Mehedi
Hasan missed a run-out chance at
the non-striker's end in the 19th over
and the second-wicket pair lifted the
total to 180 in the 51st over before
Pujara was caught behind off Hasan
Pujara faced 177 balls for his 83, in-
cluding nine boundaries. He broke
Chandu Borde's long-standing re-
cord of most first-class runs (1,604)
in an Indian season.
"We both think in the same way,
and in the middle we are each other's
company," Vijay said of his partner-
ship with Pujara. "And Virat (Kohli)
has been in fantastic touch and taken
his game to a different level. I thought
340 would be a good score at the end,
but he made the extra 10-20 runs
Ahmed said his teammates lament-
ed the state of the pitch.
"It was a good wicket to bat on,"
Ahmed said. "In the first hour of play,
there was some movement. But after-
wards it was easy for the batsmen."
India surprisingly went in with
three pacemen and with two spin-
ners in the bowling attack, recalling

captain Azhar Ali has stepped
down and the Pakistan Crick-
et Board has appointed wick-

Ahmed also leads Pakistan in
Twenty20 internationals and
will make his ODI captaincy debut
against the West Indies in April.
The PCB said in a statement yes-
terday that Ali recently met with
board chairman Shaharyar Khan
and informed him that he wished to
relinquish the captaincy "because
it was affecting his batting form."
However, Khan told Ali that his
place in the team will not be af-

world rankings during Ali's cap-

"Azhar was under a lot of pres-
sure and the writing was on the
wall," Akhtar told Geo television.
"He did the right thing to step
down and we should endorse it."

Malinga picked for T20Is in Australia
Dinesh Chandimal, who led Sri
Lanka in the last of the T20Is in
South Africa, has been dropped
from the squad for the three T20Is
in Australia, while a clutch of
players stage a comeback to the
side. The most notable of these
is Lasith Malinga who has now
recovered from injury.
Allrounders Dasun Shanaka and
Milinda Siriwardana, and batsmen
Dilshan Munaweera and Chamara
Kapugedara were also named, after
being left out of the squad to South
Africa. Upul Tharanga, who is cur-
rently leading Sri Lanka in the ODIs in
South Africa ODIs, will lead the team
in place of Angelo Mathews, who re-
mained unavailable through injury.
Dhananjaya de Silva, Thikshila de
Silva, Nuwan Pradeep and Suranga
Lakmal were left out of the squad.
There was still no place for wick-
etkeeper-batsman Kusal Perera or

This is the first time Malinga was
picked since he withdrew from the
side ahead of the 2016 World T20,
citing a bone bruise in his left knee.
