INDvSL: Twitter hails Vijay and Pujara for their superb centuries

It was all too familiar story for India on the 2nd test in Nagpur, Cheteshwar Pujara and Murali Vijay like they have done throughout this mega home season were once again grinding the opposition bowlers into the dirt during the first session through their trademark attritional batting.

The runs were coming at a trickle but there is always a sense of calmness about these two batting together, from the outside one can almost feel the inevitability of these two stitching a partnership once the first few overs are negotiated. Both these batsmen have an innate ability to thwart the bowlers for hours, if India is going to have any success overseas, Vijay and Pujara will have to become the pillars of the batting unit in tough conditions as they are at home.

Vijay picked up his rate of scoring soon after completing a half-century and ended up scoring a brilliant 128, while Pujara possessing monk like powers of concentration eventually got to his hundred later in the day while remaining untroubled at the crease for his hardworking 121 and still going strong.

Sri-lanka were hopeless throughout the day and soon ran out of ideas after the arrival of the skipper Virat Kohli who started to flex his batting muscles right from the start of his innings scoring at a very brisk pace providing momentum to the otherwise slow Indian innings. He along with Pujara will resume their innings tomorrow with Indian scorecard reading a very healthy 312/2, with India leading by 107 runs.

Twitter congratulated both Vijay and Pujara for their superb centuries, here are all the reactions throughout the day”s play
