COMMENTARY

That's all from us, folks. India have managed to keep their run of consecutive series victories going. The hosts have once again won a Test in not-so-helpful conditions for their bowlers and that should boost their confidence. They next host Australia for a 4-match Test series, starting on 23rd February. The visitors, on the other hand, will be happy with the fight but will know they could have done better. They will go back home with quite some positives. Hope you enjoyed our coverage and will join us for the future games. We bid you goodbye. Cheers!
Indian skipper and Man of the Match, Virat Kohli feels that it was a really good wicket to bat on throughout the five days and also a good toss to win. Applauds the opposition for batting impressively well in the first innings as it meant that they had to work hard for their wickets. Opines that the track was still a good one on Day 5 and it did not offer much, so the bowlers had to do the hard work. Praises Ishant Sharma for bowling well with the older ball, credits Bhuvneshwar Kumar too. Mentions that the presence of the two world class spinners allows him to attack with the pacers. Adds that he is really happy with his batting at the moment. Admits that they thought England was their biggest series but having beaten them 4-0, there is pressure on them to win against Australia. Ends by saying that the guys are really looking forward for the challenge and hopes to perform even better. Applauds the crowd for turning out in numbers as it also pumps up the players.
Bangladesh skipper, Mushfiqur Rahim feels that they created a lot of opportunities in the first innings and it would have been good if they had restricted them to a score under 550-600. Calls it a good performance from the guys as he is proud of them, especially the lower order. Opines that they played sensibly against the number one side in the world and it was a good learning curve for them. Appreciates the fact that they batted more than 100 overs in both the innings. Ends by saying that the guys played well this time and is looking forward to the games against Sri Lanka to get better.
India's batsmen rattled up quick runs in a session in their second innings and that meant Bangladesh had a mammoth target to win. Realistically, a draw was the probable result they were aiming but ended stumps with three wickets down. They did fight hard on the final day but quite a few loose shots cost them big. Mahmudullah was the only batsman to show a lengthy resolve. Bangladesh did compete well but would have wanted to take the game deep into the day. Ashwin and Jadeja were brilliant while Ishant was incisive too. They will acknowledge the fight but will also look to get better and win more games.
Despite staring at a huge score, Bangladesh didn't wilt as they battled hard with Rahim's ton leading the defiance. Shakib and Mehedi also dug in with valuable fifties. They did concede a big lead of 299 but had eaten up enough time for Kohli to shrug off the thought of enforcing the follow-on. India's pacers bowled quite well as the spinners were reduced to a supporting role for a change.
An emphatic win for India to seal the one-off Test. Right from opting to bat, the hosts hardly put a foot wrong with the batsmen piling up a massive total. The in-form skipper, Kohli's double ton was the highlight while Vijay and Saha also compiled centuries. It was a complete batting effort as everybody sans Rahul chipped in. Barring Taijul and to an extent Mehedi, the rest of the bowlers were highly ineffective for Bangladesh.
100.3
Ravichandran Ashwin to Taskin Ahmed, out, OUT! INDIA WIN BY 208 RUNS! Very full on leg stump, Taskin looks to flick but is struck on the pads. Big appeal for lbw and one of the close-in fielders has taken the catch as well. Erasmus thinks there is an inside edge and so denies the lbw appeal. However, as the fielder has taken it, he has to go upstairs to confirm if there was a bat involved. The soft signal is OUT. Replays show that there was no inside edge. So, it is a not out regarding the catch. Kohli then nonchalantly opts for the review, which was obvious. Ball Tracker shows that the impact is in line and that's hitting the leg stump. So, that completes a quite comfortable win for India.
What's happened there? There was an appeal for lbw but Erasmus feels there is an inside edge. The catch has been taken too. He isn't sure and decides to refer it upstairs. Soft signal is OUT. Okay, replays show that there is no bat involved. So, India decide to review the lbw eventually.

Ravindra Jadeja to Taijul Islam, out, OUT! GONE! Tea will now be extended with this wicket. A bit short around off, Taijul goes back to pull but miscues it straight up in the air. India's openers were the two men converging under the ball.

Ravindra Jadeja to Mehedi Hasan, out, OUT! GOT HIM! Mehedi should probably have reviewed it but he chooses not to. A ripper from Jadeja as the ball spits off the deck and turns away from Mehedi who looks to block. Extra bounce and it's well taken by Saha. Big appeal for caught behind and it's given by the umpire as well. We will have to look at the replays to see if there was any glove and maybe Mehedi could have used the DRS. Replays show that there was a faint amount of glove, Snicko confirms the same.

76.6
Ishant Sharma to Kamrul Islam Rabbi, no run, BIG APPEAL! Very full inswinger and Rabbi misses it to be rapped on the front pad. Looked very close to the naked eye but the lbw appeal is turned down. Ishant cannot believe it and neither can his teammates. India don't have a review left and so it's a reprieve for Rabbi as replays show that it was hitting middle stump with the impact also in line. The umpire probably thought the impact was just outside the line.
76.5
Ishant Sharma to Kamrul Islam Rabbi, no run, That looked comical! Back of a length around off, Rabbi is expecting the bumper and looks to evade the ball by taking his eyes off. The ball doesn't rise much and goes just over the off pole.

KAMRUL ISLAM RABBI is the new man in.

Ishant bangs it midway down the pitch and forces the batsman to go for the pull stroke. Turns into a top edge that is comfortably pouched by Kumar at fine leg. A solid knock ends but Mahmudullah will know that he should have batted deep into the day. India just three wickets away now.

Or will the visitors be able to provide resistance? Mahmudullah and Sabbir Rahman will continue with the bat while Ravindra Jadeja will begin the proceedings with the ball for India.
.... DAY 5, SESSION 2 ....
Good session for India to start the day. They got only two wickets but it were the big scalps of Shakib and Rahim. The former was undone by a Jadeja special while the skipper had a brain fade to gift his wicket to Ashwin. Amidst the mess, Mahmudullah batted solidly and has a very nervy Sabbir with him who has tried to look positive. India's spinners were superb while the quicks kept it tight too. The pitch hasn't played that badly and Bangladesh will hope to fight on for a draw, if not an improbable win. They need a big partnership for that to happen. Join us in a while for the post-lunch session to see how things pan out.
66.6
Umesh Yadav to Mahmudullah, no run, Fuller and around off, pushed gently back to the bowler. The Indians were ready to move on for bowling one more over before the break.

62.6
Umesh Yadav to Mahmudullah, FOUR, FOUR! STREAKY RUNS! Fuller ball outside off, Mahmudullah goes hard at it with a drive and gets an outside edge that flies through the slip cordon towards the third man fence.

Sabbir Rahman is the next man in.
52.4
Ravichandran Ashwin to Mushfiqur Rahim, out, OUT! Ashwin strikes in his very first over! Bad choice of shot after such a settled knock. The big fish departs and the hosts will be really elated after getting him as he was really vital in the first innings. Floated outside off, Rahim again tries to reach to the pitch of the ball but he is unable to do it this time. He still goes for the shot and the bat turns in his hand as he just hits in the air towards the extra cover region. Jadeja traces back a few steps and takes a fine catch.

The players and umpires are making their way out to the middle. If Bangladesh are to harbor any hopes of saving the game, they need a really strong first session. They need their senior men to get going in a big way to put up a fight. MAHMUDULLAH is on strike for the first ball of the day.
Pitch Report - Sanjay Manjrekar says that the infection (cracks) hasn't spread yet. Adds that it is still a really good batting wicket as the cracks are mainly visible on the fuller lengths. Opines that Bangladesh have two batsmen in the middle and two more to come as they look to survive the whole day. Ends by saying that the visitors need to take it to the final hour of play and then assess the situation before they think of going for a win.
The pitch has started to turn and that will benefit the Indian spinners. The spinners would like to make life difficult for the Bangladeshi batsmen who will be looking to bat out the day and achieve a draw, if not a win. Promises to be an exciting day. Stay tuned as the action isn't far away.
Hello and a warm welcome for the final day of the one-off Test match between India and Bangladesh. It should be an exciting day of cricket as the hosts are in sight of victory. They have dominated for the most parts of this Test match but the visitors have also shown resistance while batting. They would once again like to put a good challenge today.
.... DAY 5, SESSION 1 ....
It was a day of contrast for India's bowlers. Their pacers breathed fire in the morning session, leaving the spinners to be sidekicks. However, the roles reversed, as expected in the final session with Ashwin and Jadeja causing plenty of problems for the batsmen with the track opening up just a bit. It will be a huge task for Bangladesh tomorrow to save this game although not impossible. Morning session will be vital for the tourists. Tune in at 0930 local, 0400 GMT for the final day's play. Till then, it's goodbye from us.
Another day that belonged to India. They managed to clean up Bangladesh in the morning session although Rahim did conjure up a defiant ton to keep the hosts at bay for a while. India then rattled up quick runs by the tea break and set Bangladesh a massive target to win. The visitors lost Tamim early but Mominul and Sarkar seemed to steady the ship before both departed in rather quick succession. Shakib and Mahmudullah managed to avoid further dents but the task ahead is humongous for Bangladesh.

COMMENTARY

End of over

IND159/4 (29.0 Ovs)

Taijul Islam was the only Bangladeshi bowler to impress consistently. Overall, the visitors' bowling lacked teeth to trouble the Indian batting. Barring the first session yesterday, India's batsmen were hardly challenged although there were a plethora of chances missed. India became the first team to post 600-plus totals thrice in a row. A huge mountain to climb for Bangladesh, starting with a tricky phase to stumps today. The reply isn't far away.
A marathon batting performance from India comes to an end. Murali Vijay's century and a 83 from Cheteshwar Pujara set the platform that was consolidated further by a brilliant double ton from Virat Kohli. Just like India's no.3 batsman, Ajinkya Rahane too missed out on a century but Wriddhiman Saha didn't. The keeper batsman batted well and Ravindra Jadeja too had some fun with a fifty of his own to complete a ruthless batting performance.
Declaration has finally come. Kohli has called his boys back and now they will have a go at the Bangladeshi batsmen. Jadeja and Saha rush back to the pavilion with a smile on their faces.

....DAY 2, SESSION 2....
Another dominating session for India. It was a frenetic first hour as Kohli went berserk while Rahane too joined the fun as the partnership stretched past 200. Although the latter departed to a superb catch, the skipper has stood firm, closing on his fourth double ton. He survived a couple of close lbw shouts while Saha escaped a stumping scare too. Bangladesh's bowlers were taken apart with only Taijul providing some control. The passage after lunch may see declaration batting at some point. Join us in a while for the second session.

Pitch Report - Sunil Gavaskar feels that the pitch was really good to bat yesterday and the Indian batters made full use of it. Also says that the conditions supported the pitch really well. Adds that turn will keep on increasing with every passing day as it will be a really good wicket for spinners. Ends by saying that there are a few cracks which have not opened up which makes it still a good batting wicket.
The Bangladeshi bowlers started well but hardly troubled once Kohli got in and will try to impose pressure on the home side with regular wickets. If they fail to pick up quick wickets, it might just be a really long day on the field for the visitors. Stay tuned for all the live action.
Hello and welcome for the 2nd day of the only Test match between India and Bangladesh. The hosts have totally dominated yesterday's game of play. Apart from KL Rahul, everyone got going. Vijay and Kohli, each scored a ton to keep the scoreboard ticking. While the former got out, the latter has kept on marching alongside Rahane. Those two will look to post a huge score on the board.
....Day 2, Session 1....
The pitch has looked good for batting although there is a two-paced nature to it coupled with slow turn. Still, it's been a fairly good surface to bat on and India's batsmen have cashed in. It won't be wrong to say that most of the dismissals today were a result of the batsmen gifting their wickets. The stage is set for India to really post a gargantuan total on the board. Bangladesh will hope they can somehow limit the damage. Do join us tomorrow at 0930 local, 0400 GMT for the second day's play. Till then, it's goodbye from us.
Bangladesh did have their chances in the first session but failed to grab those and it hurt them badly. The run out chance of Vijay was the biggest blemish for them. Taskin Ahmed and Kamrul Rabbi were impressive early on but lacked fizz as the day progressed. Mehedi Hasan was impressive in parts but overall, Bangladesh's spinners failed to apply constant pressure. There was some discipline in the bowling in the first session but nothing much to write home about after that.
Another great session to cap a superb day for India. As was the pattern in the first two sessions, they lost just a solitary wicket after tea but continued to boss the game. Virat Kohli brought up another brilliant ton and is still there with Ajinkya Rahane who has looked fluent as well. Murali Vijay's ton and a Cheteshwar Pujara fifty set the platform for the hosts after KL Rahul's dismissal in the very first over of the day.

Kamrul Islam Rabbi to Cheteshwar Pujara, no run, EDGED, DOESN'T CARRY! Lovely outswinger from Rabbi and it forces the outside edge as Pujara pushes at it. The edge just falls short of the man at first slip who was a bit deep too. Could Rahim have gone for the catch himself? Well, maybe but either way, the chance is gone now. You can't keep the slips so deep in the sub-continent anyway.

7.6
Kamrul Islam Rabbi to Murali Vijay, FOUR, FOUR! Not convincing from Vijay! Banged in short on middle, he goes for the pull but wasn't in control at all. The ball flew off his glove down the leg side. The fine leg fielder was quite square and so he got a boundary. Probing over from Rabbi ends.
7.5

7.4

5.5

2.4
Taskin Ahmed to Cheteshwar Pujara, no run, What happened there? Unwanted appeal from Bangladesh. This was a length ball well down the leg side, Pujara wanted to flick but decided not to play the shot. Rahim collected the ball with a full stretch dive to his left and all the players went up for an appeal. Not sure what the fuss was about, there was daylight between bat and ball. They almost went for the review there, it would have been hilarious had that happened.
2.3
Taskin Ahmed to Cheteshwar Pujara, no run, Short of a length on middle, tucks up Pujara a bit as he taps it towards short leg. Looked a bit hurried on that occasion. He generally does look uncomfortable against the rising ball that is angled into his body.

0.4
Taskin Ahmed to Lokesh Rahul, out, OUT! CHOPPED ON! What a start for Bangladesh to the Test match! Rahul will consider himself slightly unlucky but it wasn't a wise shot to start with. Full ball outside off, he goes for the lazy drive without any footwork. Gets a thick inside edge that cannons on to his back leg before disturbing the stumps. Taskin is pumped up and why shouldn't he be? Perfect start for the tourists.
0.3
Taskin Ahmed to Lokesh Rahul, no run, Back of a length outside off, a bit of extra bounce this time but the line isn't threatening as Rahul lets it pass.

MUSHFIQUR RAHIM hopes that his boys are pumped up as they are playing a top side in their den. Says that they learnt a lot of lessons from their recent New Zealand tour and stresses on the importance of playing consistent cricket over five days. Feels that it is a good pitch with some initial help for the pacers in the first hour. States that they are playing two pacers and two spinners with Shakib Al Hasan as the all-rounder.
VIRAT KOHLI says that India will bat first. Opines that it is a good pitch to bat on with a nice covering of grass. States that Hyderabad has always been a good pitch with some help for the quicks. Hopes that India can continue their Test match form without being complacent. AJINKYA RAHANE and BHUVNESHWAR KUMAR are back while WRIDDHIMAN SAHA to returns to the XI. India are playing three seamers and two spinners.
Time for the toss. Virat Kohli flips the coin, heads is the call from Mushfiqur Rahim and it is a tail. INDIA WIN THE TOSS AND OPT TO BAT.
Sunil Gavaskar says that there is an even covering of grass on the pitch which should allow the pitch to settle nicely. Batsmen should enjoy the surface although the cracks will gradually open up as the game progresses. Still, the deterioration should not be alarming enough.
Hello and welcome to our coverage of the one-off Test match between India and Bangladesh in Hyderabad. There is a lot hype around this match due to the the tourists playing their first ever Test on Indian soil. They have their task cut out against the Numero Uno side who are in supreme form at the moment. Bangladesh's ability to play spin well will give them a better chance than the previous visiting sides but a lot hinges on their batting. India have a problem of plenty with their XI and it remains to be seen as to who all make the cut for the game. The toss and other updates are coming up shortly.

End of over

IND159/4 (29.0 Ovs)

On a slow and docile surface, India's pacers were the ones who asked more questions of the batsmen with Yadav standing out. There was good reverse on offer for the quicks and they made it count. The spinners haven't got much purchase as the track hasn't quite deteriorated as everyone expected it to. With a big lead to boot, India will want to make quick runs before the inevitable declaration. One over before the lunch break. Stay tuned.
INDIA WILL BAT AGAIN. Quite expected once Bangladesh batted through the session. A good one for India as they managed to mop up the final 4 wickets for just 66 runs added to the overnight score. Rahim's century was the highlight of their innings while Shakib and Mehedi too supported well as the tourists battled hard in reply to India's marathon batting effort.
127.5
Ravichandran Ashwin to Mushfiqur Rahim, out, OUT! 250 TEST WICKETS FOR ASHWIN! He is the fastest ever to reach the landmark as well. Wasn't a wicket-taking delivery though as he speared this down the leg side, Rahim went for the sweep but got a fine bottom edge that was smartly taken by Saha. The appeal for a catch was given instantly and Rahim didn't want to review it either. The umpires check for the no ball and Ashwin is fine. So, that wraps up the innings. INDIA LEAD BY 299 RUNS.

Pitch report - Sanjay Manjrekar says the pitch is not a result oriented one as we are used to seeing in India. Adds that there are roughs on the pitch but they are quite close to the stumps which the bowlers cannot exploit much. Opines that it is still a very good batting strip. Ends by saying the bowlers will need something special to get wickets.
Rahim found support in Shakib and Mehedi and will hope to continue in the same way with the latter. The main thing on their mind would be to avoid the follow-on which is still a massive 166 runs away. The hosts would want to stamp their authority in the game with some quick wickets and ask the away team some questions. Stay tuned to find out.
Hello and welcome to the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad for the fourth day of the one-off Test between India and Bangladesh. The visitors with a couple of fantastic sessions have put up a brave fight and are inching closer to avoiding the follow-on. Their skipper has been the man to watch out for as he has played beautifully so far.
.... DAY 4, SESSION 1 ....
India's bowlers all tried hard on a pitch that didn't have many demons in it. There was the odd ball playing tricks but it was generally a good batting surface. The deficit is still a huge 365 for Bangladesh but at least they can pride themselves for the fight they have shown so far. Tomorrow should be another grueling day's play. Let's see how the pitch behaves. Join us at 0930 local, 0400 GMT to enjoy the fourth day's play. Till then, this is goodbye from us. Cheers!
A wicketless final session giving Bangladesh some respite to end what can be called an even day. It seemed like one-way traffic at lunch with the visitors struggling. Veterans Shakib and Rahim struck fifties to put the innings back on track. The former departed to a poor stroke but the skipper battled on, finding good company in the rookie Mehedi as Bangladesh ended the day on a high. Rahim did have a life as he seemed to be run out on 18 but the third umpire gave him the benefit of the doubt and the skipper cashed in.
103.6
Ishant Sharma to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, What a ripper to end the day! Excellent bouncer from Ishant and equally well played by Rahim to sway away from the line of the bumper just in time. He survives to fight another day. STUMPS ON DAY 3.
There is a man at deep square leg now.
3000 Test runs for Rahim.
103.5
Ishant Sharma to Mushfiqur Rahim, FOUR, FOUR! TOP EDGE BUT SAFE! Dug in short on off, Rahim goes for the pull, almost out of compulsion due to the blow off the previous ball. Cannot control and gets a top edge but there isn't anyone in the deep at square leg as it goes to the fence.
The physio is out there once more to attend to Rahim. The visiting captain looks very ginger out there. Good news that he is finally ready to resume.
103.4
Ishant Sharma to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, OUCH! That has hurt badly and Rahim is wincing in pain.

103.3
Ishant Sharma to Mushfiqur Rahim, FOUR, FOUR! Fine batting! Good length outside off, Rahim stays back to that and delays the cut to find the gap at backward point as the ball races to the fence. Classy stroke that from the captain.

This time it is Mehedi who is getting some treatment for his cramps. Not a bad way to eat up some time with stumps around the corner. He wouldn't want India to bowl more than the four minimum overs left in the day.

Welcome back for the final session. The longer Bangladesh bat in this innings, the lesser will be the chances of Virat Kohli enforcing the follow-on, irrespective of how many the visitors make. ISHANT SHARMA to begin proceedings after tea.
.... DAY 3, SESSION 3 ....
The hosts have kept it tight throughout and they will be wanting to take the last four wickets as soon as possible for their captain to decide about the follow-on. The Indian bowlers have tried hard but the wicket still looks batting friendly as it has hardly supported the spinners. The last session could be interesting as we could very well see a follow-on or might also see the visitors bat through. Join us in a while for the final session of play.
A shared session for the first time in the match after the hosts have dominated the game throughout. Bangladesh managed to score 121 runs in the last 31 overs with the loss of a couple of wickets. Shakib and Rahim stitched a partnership of 107 runs before Ashwin sent back the former. Rahman started well but could not capitalize on the start as Jadeja sent him back with a beautiful delivery which was darted in. The visiting team skipper has kept his march on despite losing partners from the other end and will be important to see how long they can keep going.

There is a huge appeal for lbw that is turned down. Probably did just a bit too much although it still looked a bit close to the naked eye. Kohli decides to review it after a chat with Kumar. Just about a fair delivery and there isn't any bat involved either. Impact is in line and clipping leg stump which means it is umpire's call. So, the on-field call will stay.

The second day of cricket only managed to bring 4 wickets, that just shows how good the pitch is for batting. Will the pitch aid spin today or will it be another batting friendly day of cricket?
Pitch Report - Sunil Gavaskar reckons that the cracks are getting wider which should help the Indian spinners. Adds that as the day progresses the cracks will keep widening up and they are mainly visible near the good length area.
The visitors did not lose a single wicket till the 11th over but Umesh Yadav drew first blood via a tremendous review by the Indian skipper. They will be wanting to bat as long as possible to make the game even. The home side on the other hand will want to keep on picking wickets at regular intervals to keep mounting pressure on the opposition. Hope it is an exciting day of cricket. Join us in a while as the start isn't far away.
Hello and a warm welcome to the coverage of Day 3 of the one-off Test between India and Bangladesh in Hyderabad. The hosts sit on top of the game after batting extremely well. With the exception of KL Rahul, every other Indian batsmen was amongst the runs. The massive total on the board means that the Bangladeshi players were under pressure heading into the fag end of the day.
.... DAY 3, SESSION 1 ....
It should be an exciting game of cricket tomorrow where the visitors will hope to spend some time out in the middle and build in the same way the hosts did. The Indian bowlers will want to come out roaring expecting the pitch to help the spinners so that they can impose the follow-on. Join us tomorrow at 0930 local (0400 GMT) for the Day 3 of this one-off Test match.
The hosts have managed to post a big score on the board, thanks to some sensational batting after losing their first wicket in their very first over. Vijay and Pujara steadied the ship but Pujara missed on his century. Kohli stepped up to Vijay's century by scoring yet another double hundred in this season. Rahane was also amongst the runs. Saha scored a ton as well and Jadeja chipped in with a fifty.
Just when it seemed like Bangladesh had survived the day, some terrific bowling by Umesh Yadav and an even better review by Virat Kohli broke the opening partnership. Sarkar was sent back but Tamim and Mominul managed to survive the day for the visitors.
India will be really happy with the session after they piled up 57 runs in just 13 overs which helped them post a big score of 687 runs on the board. Saha got his century and Jadeja also made it a point to reach his fifty in no time before the Indian skipper decided to call them back to the pavilion.
13.6
Umesh Yadav to Mominul Haque, 1 run, Fuller on middle, Mominul jams it towards mid on for a quick single. Kumar is a bit slow to get to the ball and that allows the run with ease. THAT SHALL BE STUMPS ON DAY 2.

Umesh Yadav to Soumya Sarkar, out, OUT! GONE! What a review from Virat! Length ball outside off, angling in, Sarkar goes for the drive as Saha take a fine diving catch to his right. Big appeal as the Indians feel there is a faint inside edge there. Nobody is really confident though. Kohli decides to gamble with the review as he feels he has heard something. It seems to be very close to the naked eye. Guess what, the Snicko shows a slight spike. That will do for the hosts as the on-field call has to be overturned. Kohli cannot do any wrong, can he? Sarkar isn't happy as he walks back to the pavilion. Just the spark the Indians needed after a rather uneventful passage of play.
India have taken a review for caught behind against Sarkar. Nobody was really confident among the Indians, probably a leap of faith by Kohli.
