After registering an emphatic win against Sri Lanka in the first Test match, Indian captain Virat Kohli on Saturday heaped praises on his bowlers for delivering a 304-run victory on a wicket that "was really good to bat on".

The Men in Blue secured a comprehensive 304-run victory over hosts Sri Lanka with a day to spare as Shikhar Dhawan celebrated his come back to the side after a gap of almost 10 months with a Man-of-the-Match winning performance, scoring 190 in the first innings.

Herath, who bowled just nine overs in India's second innings and didn't bat on Saturday, was hopeful without being certain that he would play the second Test.

Popular perceptions do not perturb him, which is the reason why India skipper Virat Kohli does not believe in counting the number of innings in which he had a dry run.

Starting off the day on 189/3, India captain Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane amassed an unbeaten 51-run partnership, during which Kohli brought up his hundred, before he chose to declare with his side on 240/3.

Dinesh Chandimal is expected to return to lead the Sri Lanka team in the second Test against India at the SSC next week, after recovering from a bout of pneumonia that kept him out of the first Test in Galle. "You can not utilise so much energy in that but it always feels good to score runs especially when the team wins", Kohli, who scored 103 not out, added.

Sri Lanka, already a batsman short with Asela Gunaratne ruled out of the series by a fractured thumb, reached 4-192 in their second innings at tea, facing the prospect of going 1-0 down in the three-match series.

His 153 in the first innings helped India post a mammoth total of 600 and his 253-run stand with Shikhar Dhawan put India in the box seat.

Chasing 550 runs then, Sri Lanka were reduced to 29/2 in the sixth over.

IT took him six years to make a comeback to the Indian Test team and his spot as an opener is still not guaranteed but Abhinav Mukund would prefer to live in the present and contribute in team's cause rather than thinking about past or future. The Score card after the First Test Match are as follows as given below.

Having fallen 309 runs behind after the first innings, the hosts found themselves needing 550 to win the match on day four as India piled on the runs once again.

Debutant Danushka Gunathilaka was out for two, hitting Umesh Yadav straight to Cheteshwar Pujara at square leg. Since there's a lot of time remaining for the action, the players of Team India made a decision to blow some steam off. But obviously you can not guarantee anything, ? he added. It means that unless Herath recovers in time, the Lankans may not just lose their strike bowler, but may also have to find another captain with two Tests still to go in this series. "But when you are doing a job for the team, I always enjoy scoring hundreds".
