The day-night Test between India and Sri Lanka has been once again dominated by the home side. Captain Rohit Sharma had a brilliant outing on the field with his bowlers doing the job for him, bowling out the opponents on 109 in first innings after Shreyas Iyer guided India to 252. A huge first-innings lead in bowler-friendly conditions, presumably setting up a win in his debut Test series as captain - everything seems to be going for Hitman.

But it's not really true! Not everything has gone in Rohit Sharma's way in Bengaluru. Ahead of start of play on Day 2, a fan from stands took a video where the struggles of Indian captain were very well captured. It all happened when the players of home side were jogging on the field, warming up for the day's action.

Funny moment ahead of start of play in Bengaluru

Unfortunately, the Bengaluru wind got the better of Hitman. His cap went off his head in a hilarious manner which left everyone in splits. While one of his teammates came to rescue, a similar sequence of events unfolded few seconds later as crowd erupted in laughter with Rohit Sharma also giving a smile while looking towards them. This time around, he had to help himself to get his hat back on.

Rohit gets a good start in second innings

After failing with the bat in first innings followed by his struggles with the hat, Rohit Sharma looked quite solid during the start of second innings. He played some gorgeous shots and looked cautious as India went to tea break at 61/1 in 18 overs, with Indian captain scoring 30* off 48 balls.
