The light was fading and there were dark clouds approaching as well. We would have had a far more entertaining Test had the match been scheduled some other time. Nevertheless, both the teams will have something to take away from this game. This is the first time Bangladesh have not lost a Test after following on. Well, there are such bizarre facts which you cannot ignore.

India’s performer of the match is Ajinkya Rahane for his innings of 98 off 103 balls.

Bangladesh’s performer of match is Shakib Al Hasan for his four-wicket haul.

Shikhar Dhawan is the Man of the Match for his splendid innings of 173.

Virat Kohli: We had a good time with the bat. They (openers) batted for the team, it was a selfless performers. Having rains for 2-3 hours everyday was the spoiler. Both the teams were disappointed. We were really prepared. We had a good time on the field, the boys put up a good show. Ashwin and Harbhajan are quality bowlers. Harbhajan has been a match winner for India. Guys made most of the time we had on the field. Boys delivered perfectly. The wickets played the way we expected. We thought if it will not rain the pacers can trouble the Bangladeshi batsmen. There was no reverse swing as well. Combination was right, conditions are never in control. We adjusted nicely. Bangladesh are a talented bunch. In one-day cricket they are right up there. They have been stepping up in biggest stages. That shows the potential and character. Wish them the best for the days to come.

Mushfiqur Rahim: When it rains it gets difficult. Praise the groundsmen who did a great job all the time. We thought our bowlers did a good job. There are areas for us to improve, and hopefully we will come out strong. Shakib is a great player and so is Tamim, I hope they continue the same way. We have played well, say against Pakistan.

The ODI series begins on June 18. Thank you for joining us for this Test, we have few more days left for the second and final leg of the tour. See you then!

Live Cricket Score Bangladesh (2nd innings) 23/0 | Overs 15: Murali Vijay and Shikhar Dhawan bowled in tandem for India, captain Kohli trying out new things. And then the teams decided it was enough. The one-off Test between India and Bangladesh has ended in a lame draw.

BATTING:  Tamim Iqbal 16 (41), Imrul Kayes 7 (49)

Live Cricket Score Bangladesh (2nd innings) 17/0 | Overs 12:  There are 19 more overs left in the day, and this game looks all but a lame draw. Indians are trying their best to snaffle out a wicket or two, but some luck is also needed. It is getting pretty dark at the moment with clouds hovering over the stadium.

BATTING:  Tamim Iqbal 11 (33), Imrul Kayes 6 (39)

Live Cricket Score Bangladesh (2nd innings) 12/0 | Overs 7: DROPPED? Ashwin squares up Kayes on the second last ball of the sixth over, with the ball turning more than expected, taking the edge and carrying to the first slip, where Kohli’s one-handed effort was not enough as he got to the ball but failed to grab it. Apart from this, Bangladesh have been quite watchful against the Indian  bowlers.

BATTING:  Tamim Iqbal 6 (20), Imrul Kayes 6 (22)

Live Cricket Score Bangladesh (2nd innings) 4/0 | Overs 2: There was a boundary in the fine leg region in the first over from Umesh. Ashwin comes on from the other end with the new ball. He starts off with a maiden.

BATTING:  Tamim Iqbal 4 (6), Imrul Kayes 0 (6)

Bangladesh batsmen are out in the middle after India imposed follow-on. Umes Yadav to begin the proceedings.

Live Cricket Score Bangladesh 256/10 | Overs 65.4: OUT! Bangladesh have been bowled out for mere 256 as Jubair Hossain has been runn out without facing a ball. There was never the second run but the tailenders went for it, and Jubair was found short of the crease as Saha broke the stumps. India ahead by 208 runs. Let’s see if there is a follow-on coming up or not.

BATTING:  Taijul Islam 17 (31)

OUT! Jubair Hossain run out 0 (0)




Live Cricket Score Bangladesh 246/9 | Overs 65.1: Aaron surprises Taijul with a snorter — a short ball directed on the batsman’s chest. Taijul nearly falls while trying to defend it, the ball brushes the gloves and races for boundary. Rahane, standing at the short leg enquired about the batsman’s well being. Indeed a sweet gesture. And there it is! Third wicket in the game for Harbhajan! Shahid tries to go big but ends up hitting high in the air. Easy catch for Dhawan!

BATTING:  Taijul Islam 10 (27)

OUT! Mohammad Shahid c Shikhar Dhawan b Harbhajan Singh 6 (9)

Live Cricket Score Bangladesh 236/8 | Overs 62: There are more than 35 overs left in this game. Harbhajan is operating from the other end as Mohammad Shahid has walked out to bat. He starts with  a boundary.

BATTING:  Taijul Islam 6 (13), Mohammad Shahid 4 (4)

Live Cricket Score Bangladesh 232/8 | Overs 61.2: Five wickets in the innings for Ravichandran Ashwin, who gets Litton Das caught at leg slip — a good effort by Rohit Sharma. Das’s dream of a half-century on debut has been shattered, as his stroke-filled innings of 45-ball 44 is over with the ball bouncing more than expected.

BATTING:  Taijul Islam 6 (13)

OUT! Litton Das c Rohit Sharma b Ravichandran Ashwin 44 (45)

Live Cricket Score Bangladesh 221/7 | Overs 59: There was a tough chance for Rohit at leg slip of Ashwin in the 59th over, but the umpire deemed it a leg bye. Taijul Islam has walked out to bat with Litton Das after the tea break. Bangladesh will have to try and preserve wickets.

BATTING:  Litton Das 38 (37), Taijul Islam 1 (7)

The players are back on the field after the tea break. The sun is still out in Fatullah, which hints that we might have a full session here. But would it help? The match looks as good as a drawn affair.

Live Cricket Score Bangladesh 219/7 | Overs 57.2: OUT! Ashwin has struck on the second ball of the 57th over and Shuvagata Hom has been caught at the leg slip. The players walk off for the tea break, with India needing another three wickets to impose follow on.

BATTING:  Litton Das 38 (34),

OUT! Shuvagata Hom c Rohit Sharma b Ravichandran Ashwin 9 (25)

Live Cricket Score Bangladesh 200/6 | Overs 54: Shuvagata Hom and Litton Das have steadied Bangladesh. Ashwin is bowling in tandem with Umesh Yadav. There was some aggression from Das, who slamed a six and a four off the Indian spinner on the 54th over.

BATTING:  Litton Das 22 (23), Shuvagata Hom 6 (16)

Live Cricket Score Bangladesh 180/6 | Overs 49: Shuvagata Hom is out there in the middle and he gets a four in the over from Aaron to get off the mark. Aaron is bowling above 140 kmph on this flat deck, and it is really good to see a fast bowler bending his back.

BATTING:  Litton Das 4 (4), Shuvagata Hom 4 (5)

Live Cricket Score Bangladesh 176/6 | Overs 48.1: Litton Das is in and he starts off with a couple of dot balls and a FOUR off the final ball in the over from Harbhajan. Varun Aaron has a wicket as well, as Sarkar gets an inside edge off the first ball of the 49th over. India well on top against Bangladesh!

BATTING:  Litton Das 4 (4)

OUT! Soumya Sarkar b Umesh Yadav 37 (54)

Live Cricket Score Bangladesh 172/5 | Overs 47.2: WICKET! Another  poor effort from a top-0rder Bangladeshi batsman. Imrul Kayes has squandered the opportunity to score a big one here. He comes down the track to smash Harbhajan, but the bowler understood the intention, bowled it a little wide. The ball bounced a little more and turned away. Kayes was way down the wicket, and Saha stumped him very, very comfortably.

BATTING: Soumya Sarkar 33 (44)

OUT! Imrul Kayes st Wriddhiman Saha b Harbhajan Singh 72 (139)

Live Cricket Score Bangladesh 165/4 | Overs 45: Bangladesh going strong as of now. The spin duo of Harbhajan and Ashwin has been taken away and Varun Aaron has completed his first over of the day.

BATTING: Imrul Kayes 71 (133), Soumya Sarkar 33 (44)

Live Cricket Score Bangladesh 155/4 | Overs 42: Sarkar looking far more comfortable now as he was earlier in the innings. Bangladeshis are looking to attack and runs are coming at a good rate for them. They trail by another 307 runs in the first innings.

BATTING: Imrul Kayes 70 (126), Soumya Sarkar 23 (33)

Live Cricket Score Bangladesh 136/4 | Overs 39: Ashwin and Harbhajan are operating in tandem now. Bangladesh have looked far more comfortable in the last three overs that they did earlier. Still a long way to go.

BATTING: Imrul Kayes 64 (119), Soumya Sarkar 10 (22)

Live Cricket Score Bangladesh 136/4 | Overs 39: Ashwin and Harbhajan are operating in tandem now. Bangladesh have looked far more comfortable in the last three overs that they did earlier. Still a long way to go.

BATTING: Imrul Kayes 64 (119), Soumya Sarkar 10 (22)

Live Cricket Score Bangladesh 133/4 | Overs 36: Ishant does not look like he would take a wicket here. Kayes gets his first runs of the day with a FOUR through cover. On the other hand, Soumya is looking like a bundle of nerves against Ashwin. Interesting passage of play.

BATTING: Imrul Kayes 63 (112), Soumya Sarkar 8 (11)

Live Cricket Score Bangladesh 124/4 | Overs 33: The dependable Soumya Sarkar comes out to bat, and is off the strike with two runs on the final ball of the over. Bangladesh cannot afford to lose wickets right now.

BATTING: Imrul Kayes 59 (103), Soumya Sarkar 3 (2)

Live Cricket Score Bangladesh 121/4 | Overs 32.4: You would expect someone as experienced as Shakib to hang around in the middle and try and bide time, but the batsman pays the price for being aggressive. The first ball is hit well through cover for FOUR, but Shakib is caught on the fourth ball trying to play the cut shot. Bangladesh in trouble!

BATTING: Imrul Kayes 59 (103),

OUT! Shakib al Hasan c Wriddhiman Saha b Ravichandran Ashwin 9 (15)

Live Cricket Score Bangladesh 117/3 | Overs 32: Ishant Sharma comes on from the other end and Shakib cuts for a FOUR, and opens his account. There is a single in the same region on the final ball, with the bowler overstepping as well on one occasion.

BATTING: Imrul Kayes 59 (103), Shakib al Hasan 5 (11)

Live Cricket Score Bangladesh 110/3 | Overs 31: Aswhin comes on to complete the remaining five balls of the 31st over of the innings. Kayes does well to defend throughout the over. Bangladesh would be cautious hereon.

BATTING: Imrul Kayes 59 (103), Shakib al Hasan 0 (4)

10.30 AM IST: There will be an inspection at 11.30 am local, which is at 11.00 am IST.

10.10 AM IST: The rain has stopped now, but there is a lot of water on the field. The groundsmen have a huge task in their hand to prepare the field, before the inevitable in form of rain appears again.

09.25 AM IST: It is raining very heavily now.


09.00 AM IST: Good morning, everyone! The match has been delayed due to rain, and one can spot puddles on the areas where there are no covers, so you can make out how well the monsoon has settled in. I will keep updating you as and when possible, but for now I can say for sure that the match is NOT starting anytime soon.

Hello and welcome to CricketCountry’s live blog of the fifth and final day of the one-off Test between India and Bangladesh on Sunday. This is Devarchit Varma, and I will be bringing you the live cricket scores and updates of the match.

The match looks all set to end in a lame draw, after persistent rains playing spoilsport on all four days. On the fourth day, Bangladesh were 111 for three before rains intervened close to the lunch break, and then the entire day’s play was washed out. Bangladesh remain at 111/3 vs India at Stumps, Day 4 after play was abandoned due to rain

India declared their first innings at the overnight score of 462 for six, with Harbhajan Singh and Ravichandran Ashwin being at the crease. Shikhar Dhawan and Murali Vijay slammed impressive centuries, while Ajinkya Rahane was very unfortunate to have missed out on a deserving ton, falling for 98. Tamim Iqbal surpasses Habibul Bashar to become Bangladesh’s leading run-scorer
