Kohli meanwhile looked in good touch as he stayed in the middle for quite some time. He came out to bat early in the contest and played some glorious shots, including his famed cover drive.
The 33-year-old appeared to be heading toward a big total before his inning was cut short as he was trapped leg-before by Roman Walker. Meanwhile, KS Bharat was the star of the show on day 1, as other Indian batters struggled but the youngster scored 70 runs in 111 balls to keep India alive in the contest.
By stumps on day 1, the visitors had slumped to 246/8, as rain forced the play to end earlier than the scheduled time.
After the end of the warmup game, Team India will take on England in a one-off Test match, which was due to be played last year, but was rescheduled due to Covid.
