Live Cricket Score Bangladesh 110/3 | Overs 29: Another wicket! And it is of the big hearted Mushfiqur Rahim as Ashwin is back with a bang! Rahim plays a defensive stroke but the ball takes an inside edge, ricochets off the pads and Rohit Sharma takes a simple catch at the leg slip.

After two long years in wilderness, Harbhajan has been able to hike his wickets tally in Test cricket A suicidal stroke from Mominul Haque, as he danced down the track to looking for a six. Mominul is not able to connect properly, the ball goes very high in the air and Umesh, standing at mid off, takes simplest of the catches. Wicket number 414 in Test cricket for Bhajjupa! He’s back!!!

Live Cricket Score Bangladesh 85/1 | Overs 18: Harbhajan Singh has been introduced into the attack in place of Ashwin.

Live Cricket Score Bangladesh 54/1 | Overs 12: DROPPED! Umesh Yadav surprised Imrul Kayes with a snorter in the 11th over, that rose quickly on him, there was a thick edge that flew to Shikhar Dhawan, who dived to his left but could only get his hands to the ball. It’s a FOUR. Umesh is not happy. Ashwin, meanwhile, is troubling the left-handers outside the off stump on a consistent basis, getting the ball turn sharply away from them. India need to keep picking wickets if they have to force a result in the match. Kayes, on the other hand, has started to score runs after a slow start. It’s time for drinks.

Live Cricket Score Bangladesh 27/1 | Overs 6: WICKET! Ravichandran Ashwin has struck and it is the key wicket of Tamim Iqbal! The left-hander came slightly ahead to play a ball going away for him, but missed to connect and in the process his backfoot left the crease. Wriddhiman Saha was extremely sharp behind the wickets, and he stumped him. Ashwin was not sure about that, and so was no one but Saha. Replays show the batsman’s backfoot was on the line.

Hello and welcome to CricketCountry s live blog of the fourth day of the ongoing one-off Test between India and Bangladesh. The match is being played at the Khan Shaheb Osman Ali Stadium in Fatullah. This is Devarchit Varma, and I will be bringing you the live cricket scores and updates from the match. READ: Murali Vijay rapidly turning into India s most dependable batsman

India are likely to declare their first innings early on Day Four. They are in a comfortable position of 462 for six, a score that is strong enough to intimidate their hosts Bangladesh, especially with five specialist bowlers in Indian cricket team.

On the third day, the play was abandoned sometime after the tea break as rains once again played spoilsport. Ajinkya Rahane was unfortunate to have missed out on a century, as he was dismissed by Shakib Al Hasan for 98. Rahane was instrumental for India on the third day as he combined with Murali Vijay to help India recover, after they lost Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli cheaply.

Dhawan fell after making a sublime 173, while Vijay scored 150. The two Indian openers added as many as 284 runs for the first wicket. They smashed quite a few records during their stand for the first wicket. For Bangladesh, Shakib has been the pick among the bowlers with four wickets in his kitty.
