    So the inevitable has happened. India’s final flurry on Day 2 means that they will not bat again as they declared overnight.

  • 9:03 AM IST

    Welcome to the coverage of Day 3 of the first Test between India and Bangladesh. With a massive lead of 343 and 3 days of play left in this game, the question on everyone’s mind is when will Kohli declare? The hosts have enough runs and more than ample time to take 10 wickets. The way they attacked in the final session would suggest that India might not even bat to start the day. But the hosts might let Bangladesh take the field and demoralise their fragile confidence even further. The visitors will have to bat out of their skins if they are to bow down with some respectability but before that they need to keep their heads strong and not get demotivated if they are asked to bowl today. Only a miracle can see them salvage anything out of this Test. With India in a position to call all the shots in this game, what will their decision be? Join us in a while to find out.

    Mayank Agarwal is down for an interview with Deep Dasgupta. He says that letting go of the fear of failure made him change his mindset and after that, he got hungrier for runs. Adds that there have been times when he didn’t get runs so he wants to make most of his batting form by scoring big. Further says that playing his first game in Melbourne was special and helping his side win the game was a great feeling. Adds that the plan was to build partnerships and once that happened, they looked to get quick runs. Says that he backs himself to hit the biggies. Informs that they have not thought about the declaration yet but they are in the driver’s seat.

    The Bangladesh bowlers gave everything out there but except for Jayed, no other bowler looked threatening. Their spinners were actually played out with a lot of ease. Hasan did take a wicket but he went for almost 5 runs per over. Ebadot bowled a lot of overs but only had one wicket to his name. A very tiring day for them and one which they would like to forget.

    Today was all about Agarwal though! The Indian opener is enjoying a golden patch in his career, especially in the first innings of a Test match. He has consistently scored well in the first innings of a Test match but today was something special. The way he attacked, the ease with which he was batting was just brilliant. He was well supported by Rahane and then Jadeja. The former missed out on a well-deserved ton whereas Jadeja has remained unbeaten at the end of the day. Umesh Yadav too enjoyed himself with the bat as he walked out to the middle before Ashwin and hit the ball to all parts of the ground. Overall, they have made the Bangladesh players toil really hard in the field and the visitors will be mentally and physically drained.

    WOW! What an entertaining half-hour of play did we witness in the end! Umesh Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja both have a smile as they walk off the field and rightly so. The duo has added 39 in 19 balls and has stretched the lead close to 350. Don’t think we need to mention which team is on top, it is quite obvious that when one side scores more than 400 runs in a day, they have to be in the driver’s seat.
