Virat Kohli and Dinesh Karthik smashed magnificent centuries as India warmed up their Champions Trophy campaign with a five-wicket thumping of Sri Lanka in their first practice game at Edgbaston, Birmingham on Saturday.

 

Kohli 144 teamed up with Dinesh Karthik 106 not out to rescue India from a wobbly start with a 186-run stand for the fifth wicket in just 23.2 overs to chase down a huge target of 334 with one over to spare.

 

India was reduced to 62 for 3 in the 13th over and then to 110 for 4 in the 21st over before Kohli and Karthik resurrected the innings and sent the Sri Lankan bowlers for a leather-hunt in the second part of their run chase.
