The first match of the two-match Test series between Sri Lanka and England is being played at the Galle International Stadium. Sri Lanka were reduced to just 135 in 46.1 overs on the first day of the match. Sri Lankan star batsman Kusal Mendis was once again out for zero runs. Mendis has not been able to score a single run in the last four Test innings, and has been trolling on social media since being dismissed to zero four consecutive times. Mendis was dismissed for 2 balls without a delivery as Stuart Broad’s Jose Butler caught the catch.
