The 2nd Test between India and Sri Lanka i.e. the pink-ball Test, kicked off on Saturday with drama. The atmosphere was absolutely electric at Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru and as India won the toss and opted to bat first, it meant that local boy Mayank Agarwal would be seen in action, opening alongside captain Rohit Sharma.

The stage was set for some exciting cricketing action but what happened in the 2nd over of innings left everyone in shock. Left-arm pacer Vishwa Fernando seemed to have trapped Mayank Agarwal in front as the ball struck his pads and the Sri Lankan pacers went berserk while appealing.

Incredible sequence of events to start day-night Test

Indian opener was unperplexed by the same, presumably because he might have got an edge. But out of nowhere, he left his crease in order to sneak a single. While there was a response from Rohit Sharma at the non-striker's end, he backed out very quickly leaving Mayank in no man's land.

While the LBW appeal was still going on, the bails had been dislodged at the striker's end and Mayank was out amid all the chaos. This is when third umpire deemed the delivery as 'no-ball' which caused a bit more confusion in the middle.

But according to the rules of game, a batsman can get out on a no-ball and since on-field umpire had not given any signal in response to the LBW appeal, the run-out was legal and Mayank had to make the long way back to pavilion on his debut home Test. Bizarre but right decision in the end!

Mayank was dismissed on 4 as India lost their first wicket, with score reading 10/1.
