about the video
Sri Lanka clung on to draw the first Test against India after Bhuvneshwar Kumar went close to inspiring a sensational last-day win for the hosts in Kolkata on Monday. After Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul led a fourth-day recovery for India, captain Virat Kohli scored his 50th international century - naturally in record fashion - to give the hosts a faint sniff of victory with a session and a bit to bowl Sri Lanka out. Kohli reached three figures with a six before India declared on 352-8, setting their opponents 231 to win with 40 overs remaining. With bad light bringing the previous four days to a premature close, it never looked likely, but Bhuvneshwar delivered a brilliant performance, taking 4-8, while Mohammed Shami took two more wickets in a blistering support act to reduce Sri Lanka to 75-7 from just 26.3 overs before the light curtailed any further excitement.
