COMMENTARY

Right then, that is it from the game. India have won the first Test comfortably and would look to cleansweep the Test series. Bangladesh,on the other hand, will look to level the series and win the second one. The second Test will start on 22nd of December at 9.00 am IST (3.30 am GMT) at the Shere Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka. As you know, our build-up will begin much earlier. So do join us for the same. Till then, goodbye and cheers!
KL Rahul, the skipper of India says that the results didn't go their way in the one-day series so it's a good start for this one. Adds that the Bangladeshi batters were playing well and getting comfortable runs and the way they batted in the second innings made it a bit difficult and it's good to start the series with a win. Says that from the position they were in the first innings, they did well and their bowling in the first innings set the game for them. Applauds Gill and Pujara for their performance and says that they haven't played test series in a while but the bowlers did well and got timely breakthroughs. Ends by saying that he is overall pleased with the team's performance.
Kuldeep Yadav is the PLAYER OF THE MATCH for his 8 wickets in the game. He says that he is happy with his performance both with the bat and ball and adds that it was a good Test for him. Tells that the wicket was a bit quicker in the first innings and in the second innings it was challenging as the wicket was a bit slower. Tells that as a wrist spinner, you have more revs on the ball and there are more variations as well and that helps in the middle. Says that he worked on his rhythm in the last year and that has helped him. 
Shakib Al Hasan, the skipper of Bangladesh says that it was a good batting pitch and they didn't bat well. Adds that it was difficult for them as they are playing Test cricket after 5-6 months but it's not an excuse. Says that they did identify their mistakes in the second innings but it was not enough and credits Zakir Hasan for playing really well. Ends by saying that to win a Test match, they need to play good cricket for all five days and especially to get a result against India. Mentions that is difficult against a quality side but they will come back stronger.
Time for the Presentation.
Bangladesh, on the other hand, do have some positives to take away from this game. However, they need to be far better than this, if they want to win Test matches regularly. They were in a strong position after the first session of this Test match but let things drift away from them. They dropped quite a few chances in the first innings and that is not what is expected from a Test side. The batting unit too faltered miserably in the first innings as they were bowled out for 150 but the positives will be how they batted in the second innings and the way their two young openers showed character and grit in the middle. Zakir Hasan scored a century on debut and Shakib too got some runs in end with his counter-attacking knock. Overall, a lot to improve for Bangladesh and they need to play 5 days of good Test cricket to make more impact in the next Test match. 
India showed in this Test match why there are one of the best Test teams in the world. They were put under the pump in the first session of Day 1 when they lost three early wickets. However, the depth of this Indian side came to the rescue and India managed to notch up over 400 runs courtesy of a fine partnership between Iyer and Pujara. In the second outing with the bat, Gill and Pujara notched up their respective centuries as the pitch got better to bat on. On the bowling front, India would be petty happy with how Kuldeep Yadav went about this business in this comeback game. He finished with 8 wickets in the Test match which included a  five-wicket haul in the first innings but it was an all-round bowling effort from India on a pitch that was pretty good to bat on and they had the attack for all seasons as everyone contributed their bit to this win. 
India have wrapped up the game on Day 5 in just 50 minutes and they now go 1-0 up in this two-match Test series. More importantly, they have notched up important World Test Championship points and this will keep India in the hunt for a place in the World Test Championship final to be held in 2023. Bangladesh, on the other hand, showed some fight in the last innings of this Test match but really, it was too much to do in the end for them.

We are all set for the morning session of Day 5! The on-field umpires have made their way out to the middle. The two overnight Bangladesh batters, Shakib Al Hasan and Mehidy Hasan also stride out to the middle now. The Indian team is in the huddle near the fence and they disperse now to take their respective positions. Mohammed Siraj to start the proceedings with the ball. Here we go...
Axar Patel is down for a chat. He says that they are happy with the performance of the team so far and they knew that the pitch will get better as the game will progress. Tells that adventure is more difficult than bowling on flat tracks for him. Mentions that as a bowler he would like to have a rank-turner but adds that he feels that flat tracks like in this venue test skills of bowlers and how one uses the pace and everything. He says that he loves to bowl with the new ball as one ball turns and one ball grips and adds that he enjoyed all the three wickets he took on Day 4.
For India, Axar Patel was the pick of the bowlers and took three wickets but all other bowlers did their bit and India now would be hoping to wrap this game early in the morning session. The pitch though is still very good to bat on and Bangladesh need 241 runs to win from here. It's a very tough task but if Bangla Tigers can put up another spirited fight, things can get very interesting. Stay tuned.
On Day 4, India managed to pick up 6 wickets in total but the first session belonged to Bangladesh. Two young openers, Najmul Hossain Shanto and Zakir Hasan compiled a 124-run stand as a wicketless first session put India in a spot of bother. However, Test cricket is all about putting those persistent efforts on the field even when the results are not going your way and India did just that and reaped the rewards in the last two sessions as they managed to pick three wickets in each session to take home the advantage at the end of Day 4. Zakir Hasan scored a century on debut while Najmul Hossain Shanto scored a fifty but the middle order could not show the same application.
Hello and a very warm welcome to Day 5 of the first Test match between Bangladesh and India here in the beautiful city of Chattogram. The home team, Bangladesh showed a lot of fight on Day 4 and have taken this game to the final day but with only four wickets to win for India, the visitors are most likely to go 1-0 up in the series today. Bangladesh though would like to take the game deep as much as possible with Shakib Al Hasan and Mehidy Hasan at the crease and let’s see how things pan out.
…Day 5, Session 1… 
Bangladesh have shown here on Day 4 that they are far better unit with the bat than they showed in the first innings. A lot of credit for that should go to their openers. They stitched together a 124-run stand and though Shanto departed after fifty, the debutant Zakir Hasan continued and got to a century. However, he soon departed after his hundred and the middle order too could not back up a good performance by the openers. Shakib Al Hasan and Mehidy Hasan have played well though and have mixed caution with aggression nicely. However, they need this pair to bat deep on Day 5 if they want to draw or even win this game and let's see how they go about thier business on the final day on this Test match. The action will start on Day 5 at 9 am IST (3.30 am GMT). Do join us for the build-up. Cheers!
India came into Day 4 with high hopes of wrapping this game up till the end of the day but they were up against a stubborn opening partnership and a pitch that got better to bat on. India just could not find the breakthrough in the morning session but then Umesh Yadav struck after Lunch to break the opening stand and then spinners joined the act to find regular breakthroughs. Axar Patel was particularly impressive as he got rid of Yasir Ali in the second session and then got two wickets in one over in the final session to put Bangladesh on the mat. Kuldeep and Ashwin also bowled well and got one wicket apiece as India have managed to pick six wickets in the day. They would like to finish things off early on Day 5 and if they can break the partnership between Shakib and Mehidy early we might have an early finish on Day 5. 
It has been another riveting session and with three wickets again in this session, India have moved closer to a victory here. Bangladesh though have done well to take this game into Day 5 but would be slightly disappointed with six wickets down now after a wicketless first session. It looks India from hereon as Bangladesh still need 241 runs to win and only have four wickets in hand with three sessions to play but you never know, we can also have another twist in the tale on Day 5.

... DAY 4, SESSION 3 ...
Bangladesh, on the other hand, need to keep their composure now. The openers did the hard work and though Shanto departed early in the second session, Zakir Hasan has stood tall. He has lost two more partners on the way but he has an experienced Mushfiqur Rahim with him now and Bangladesh would be looking to show some more grit and character in the final session. Stay tuned we will be back at 2 pm IST (8.30 am GMT) for the post-Tea session.
A riveting session of Test cricket comes to an end! Great battle between bat and ball and at the end of it, India have inched ahead with three wickets in the session. India started off with a bang picking two wickets early in the session as Umesh Yadav broke the 124-run opening stand. Axar Patel then got rid of Yasir Ali who could not make an impact again and India kept the pressure through the whole session even though Litton Das and Zakir Hasan tried to build a partnership.

Zakir Hasan is still in the crease for Bangladesh and is joined by Litton Das who is looking solid too but they need to keep their concentration up in the next hour of play as well.

Umesh Yadav to Najmul Hossain Shanto, out, OUT! CAUGHT! Finally, a breakthrough has come and there is a smile on KL Rahul's face. On a length and outside off, Najmul Hossain Shanto pushes at it away from his body. However, the ball straightens after pitching and catches the thick outside edge as the ball carries towards Virat Kohli at first slip. Kohli fumbles and almost makes a mess of it as the ball deflects off his hands towards Pant. The Indian wicketkeeper though is aware and first tries to catch it with his left hand but it pops out. However, he keeps his eye on the ball and takes a good catch with both his hands falling forward. The umpires have a chat and after consulting upstairs, it is given out. Najmul Hossain Shanto has to walk back after an amazing knock. Can India build on this breakthrough now?

Welcome back to the afternoon session! The Indian players have made their way out to the middle. The two Bangladesh openers, Najmul Hossain Shanto and Zakir Hasan are also out there to resume their innings. Can they impress again in this session? Umesh Yadav to start the proceedings with the ball. Here we go...
…Day 4, Session 2…
A worrisome moment for India as they need wickets to get into the game. They need to break this stubborn Shanto-Hasan partnership as soon as possible. They did trouble the Bangladesh openers a few times. Axar Patel was perhaps giving hard time than any other bowler but the Bangladesh openers tackled it well. The mind games played by Siraj didn't work either. They will have to come up with something different now. Can they do it soon? Or will Bangladesh dominate the second session as well? To find out, join us at 11.40 am IST (6.10 am GMT) for the post-Lunch session.
Finally, a session that belonged to Bangladesh, and they will be the happier side walking out for lunch. Their openers are playing wonderful innings and Bangladesh will be hoping to keep the scoreboard ticking. They finally have hope and things are getting interesting here. Zakir Hasan and Najmul Hossain Shanto are still unbeaten and are playing on 55 and 64 respectively. The scoreboard reads 119 for no loss at the moment and this is one of the best opening stand we have seen from Bangladesh in recent times. Still, a long way but the home side will be pleased with how things panned out for them.

We are all the ready for the start of the Day 4! Indian players have made their way out to the middle and are in the huddle before they disperse to take their respective positions. Zakir Hasan and Najmul Hossain Shanto, the two Bangladesh openers are also set to resume their innings. Kuldeep Yadav to start the proceedings with the ball. Here we go...
Paras Mhambrey, India's bowling coach is down for a chat. He stays that he is very happy with the performance of bowlers as the pitch is not easy for them and they had to work hard. Tells that it is sometimes difficult to adjust to the conditions and the nature of the pitch but the practice sessions give a fair amount of India and they help a lot to understand the bounce and other things. Mentions that all bowlers know their responsibilites and they know exactly what to do in a particular situation. He says that he is very happy with the performance of Kuldeep Yadav as he had a tough time in the last few years and tells that they need a bowler like him who provide different angle and adds that it is exciting to see him perform well.
Day 3 belonged to Shubman Gill and Cheteshwar Pujara who notched up their respective centuries after India decided to not enforce the follow-on after Kuldeep Yadav's five-wicket haul and bundling out Bangladesh for 150 in the first innings. Bangladesh were hampered by the injuries to Ebadot Hossain and Shakib Al Hasan who could not bowl and things drifted away from them very quickly as India notched up their runs pretty quickly. Bangladesh openers then played out tricky 12 overs at the end of the day and if they can show a similar application on Day 4, things can get interesting. The first session will be crucial as it can set the momentum for the rest of the day. Will Bangla Tigers stage a fightback or will India inch closer to a victory with another good session? Let’s find out as the first session will be coming your way shortly.
Hello and a warm welcome to Day 4 of the first Test between India and Bangladesh. India have dominated this Test match so far and are looking all set to win this game from here. Bangladesh have been set a target of 513 and though they have started solidly with the bat, expecting them to bat out six sessions or chase the target in the last two days will be pretty optimistic to say the least. However, this is the chance for them to redeem themselves with some fight in front of their passionate crowd and let's see how things pan out on this Day 4. 
…Day 4, Session 1…
The home side, Bangladesh, were behind the 8-ball right from the start of Day 3 and though they have batted well late in this final session but the task in front of them is still very tough. As expected they could not add much to their overnight score of first innings in the opening session and then with the ball, they looked pretty flat and tired. They actually had only three frontline bowlers to work with as Ebadot Hossain and Shakib Al Hasan were not fit to bowl and that did not help their cause either. However, now it is all about how they can bat on Day 4 and take this game as deep as possible from here. Can Bangladesh give something to cheer for their fans on Day 4? Or will India wrap this game up? We shall find out. Day 4 will start at 9 am IST (3.30 am GMT). Do join us for the build-up. Cheers!
Shubman Gill is in for a quick chat. He says that he is living this moment and Virat is very much happy with his 100. Adds that there were no different thoughts and he knew his strong areas. Ends by saying that it means a lot to have family and friends who support him and to get a century like this.
India started Day 3 with two wickets needed to wrap up Bangladesh’s first innings and they did so in around 50 minutes. However, India decided to not enforce the follow-on and came out to bat for their second outing. They did start cautiously but soon picked the pace and even though Rahul departed after getting yet another start, Gill and Pujara made sure that they convert their starts into a century this time around. Gill got to his maiden century while Pujara got his fastest century in Test cricket as India scored more that 4 runs per over. India declared with 12 overs to go in the day and would have hoped for at least couple of breakthroughs before the end of the day but Bangladesh batted well and India now need to pick 10 wickets in 6 sessions to win this one.
Bangladesh openers have done well to play out the tricky 12 overs they needed to deal with in this session. This is the kind of grit and character they need to show in Test cricket more often and they would be hoping to continue the same on Day 4. However, India are at the driver’s seat at the end of day 3 and anything other that Indian victory from here will be a big surprise. Cricket though is a game of uncertainties and we can never be sure what is in store for us in future.

COMMENTARY

End of over

BAN324-all out (113.2 Ovs)

We are back for the second innings. Indian players have made their way out in the middle. Najmul Hossain Shanto and Zakir Hasan are the openers for Bangladesh. Mohammed Siraj to start the proceedings with the ball. Here we go.
... Second Innings ...
India have managed to cross the 400-run mark! After a shaky start to the first session, the duo of Kuldeep Yadav and Ashwin posted a 92-run stand. From 293/7 they went on to 385 runs and lost Ashwin after that but the damage was done. Kuldeep Yadav was dismissed soon after that and Umesh Yadav delivered a cameo of 15 runs off 10 deliveries. The pick of the bowlers for Bangladesh were Mehidy Hasan and Taijul Islam as they took four wickets each whilst Khaled Ahmed and Ebadot Hossain took one each. Earlier, it was the 149-run stand between Iyer and Pujara that brought India to a healthy position after losing four wickets early. Both missed out on their centuries but did their job and as mentioned before the duo of Taijul Islam and Mehidy Hasan did the bulk of the work for Bangladesh. The pitch is not easy to bat on and Indian spinners will fancy their chances here. Stay tuned as Bangladesh will be ready with their reply in a short while.
133.5
Mehidy Hasan to Mohammed Siraj, out, OUT! CAUGHT! Gone this time and India have been bowled out for 404! Siraj dances down the track and Hasan pulls his length back smartly. Siraj still tries to tonk it down the ground but miscues it completely. The ball goes high in the air towards long on where Mushfiqur Rahim runs forward and takes a good catch to give Mehidy Hasan his fourth wicket.

Taijul Islam to Mohammed Siraj, FOUR, FOUR! Siraj wastes no time and smashes it away for a boundary! Tossed up on middle. Siraj skips down the track, gets outside the line of the ball and lofts it towards the extra cover fence for a boundary.
Drinks! Bangladesh have finally gotten rid of the dangerous duo of Ravichandran Ashwin and Kuldeep Yadav as they added 92 run partnership. India will be happy with how things went and getting closer to a 400 run mark. Bangladesh will look to bundle their opponents now as soon as they can. Mohammed Siraj is the last man in for India now.
132.5
Taijul Islam to Kuldeep Yadav, out, OUT! LBW! Now, Kuldeep Yadav departs and India have lost their ninth wicket now! Good knock from him and he has shown that he has all the skills to make some useful contributions with the bat in this level. Coming to the ball - It is a quicker one from over the wicket turnung into middle and leg. Kuldeep Yadav goes back and tries to work it towards the leg side but misses. The ball bounces low and hits Kuldeep Yadav low on the pads. He looks out and Taijul Islam makes a loud appeal. The umpire too does not take much time to raise his finger but Kuldeep Yadav decides to take the DRS more in hope than anything else. The UltraEdge shows no bat here. The Ball Tracking then rolls and it shows three reds. The original decision will stay and Kuldeep Yadav has to walk back.

We are all ready for the start of Day 2! The Bangladesh players are out there in the middle while Shreyas Iyer, the overnight Indian batter is joined by Ravichandran Ashwin who is a new batter after a wicket on the last delivery of Day 1. Spin to start and it will be Taijul Islam with the ball first up. Here we go...
Cheteshwar Pujara is down for a quick chat. He says that he is happy with the way he batted and had couple of important partnerships first with Pant and then with Iyer. He says that he would have liked to get a hundred but overall is happy with his performance as at one time getting to 250 was also looking tough. Mentions that it is bit difficult to bat with a hard ball but it gets easy with a softer ball. Feels that as a batter you are never in on this surface and there is one ball in every over that can get one out. Tells that if they can reach 350 there will be nothing like it but adds that anything over 300 will be good. He also feels that seamers will also have a role to play on this pitch.
Anjum Chopra is down for the Pitch Report. She says that everyone thought at the start of the Day 1 that it will be a good pitch to bat on and it is but adds that there is bit turn and bounce too. Mentions that there are few marks and abrasiveness in the surface but it is bound to happen when the pitch is 90 overs old. Feels that it creates doubts in the mind of the batters and says that from the batter's point of vew playing on the front foot on this pitch will be a safer option.
Shakib Al Hasan would be slightly unhappy as they let India off the hook after taking three wickets in the first session. Taijul Islam and Mehidy Hasan did strike late in the day to even things out a bit but missed a few chances in the middle and final season which can prove them costly eventually.  They will be hoping to bag some quick wickets in the opening session now and bundle India to a par total. Can they do it? Or will India come up with something special and post a mammoth total on the board? An important first session of Day 2 coming up.
After deciding to bat first, India started steadily as the openers KL Rahul, and Shubman Gill added 41 runs for the first wicket. After losing Gill, the wickets kept on tumbling for them until Rishabh Pant and Cheteshwar Pujara steadied the ship for a while. Pant was dismissed for a quickfire 46 and after that, Shreyas Iyer and Pujara brewed a mammoth 149-run partnership. Pujara was however dismissed but Iyer is unbeaten on 82 and India would be hoping that Ravichandran Ashwin and Iyer can stitch a big partnership here.
Hello and a warm welcome to Day 2 of the first Test match between Bangladesh and India. The game looks evenly poised as of now, courtesy of two wickets late in Day 1 for Bangladesh after an excellent partnership between Shreyas Iyer and Cheteshwar Pujara. The scoreboard reads 278/6 as of now and India will be looking to extend the score to around 400 while Bangladesh will be looking to bag some quick wickets in the morning session.
…Day 2, Session 1… 
to , no run, goodbye and cheers!
Earlier in the day, India began slowly after opting to bat first. At 41 they lost Gill and then the wickets kept on tumbling for them. They were soon 48/3 when Pant and Pujara steadied the sinking ship. India needed to get a move on to reach a good total, but soon when a good partnership was brewing, they lost Pant in the second session. The pair of Pujara and Iyer provided a much-needed impetus and kept the scoreboard ticking for them.
Pujara and Iyer brewed a 149-run partnership when their team needed them the most. Pujara was dismissed at 90 but Iyer kept on going and was joined by Axar Patel. However, Axar Patel lost his wicket on the last ball of the day as well. Have to mention a lifeline that Iyer got, a rare moment where the ball kissed the stumps but the bails did not come off. Ebadot Hossain also dropped a sitter and Iyer lived a charmed life but made full use of it in the end. KL Rahul will be pleased with the day's disciplined batting effort after a poor start and they would be looking to get to around 400 on Day 2.
Bangladesh will be pleased with how things ended for them and their bowlers tried very hard and kept their discipline throughout the day. Taijul Islam set the tone for Bangladesh with two wickets at the start alongside Khaled Ahmed and Mehidy Hasan taking one. After the dismissal of Pant, the Bangladesh bowlers just couldn't break the Pujara-Iyer stubborn partnership. However, Taijul Islam again came back to Bangladesh's rescue again and got Pujara at the end of the third session and then Mehidy Hasan got Axar Patel on the last ball of the day to make things pretty even at the end of Day 1.

Patel comes forward to defend this last delivery but misses and gets hit on the pads. Mehidy Hasan and Bangladesh players make a huge appeal and up goes the finger! Both Patel and Shreyas Iyer does not look confident but Axar Patel takes the DRS at the last moment. The replays roll in and the UltraEdge shows no bat there and then the Ball Tracking confirms that he is gone as the ball just clips the leg stump and it is umpire's call on wicket's hitting. Patel was lucky few overs back but now it is all over for him. India are 278/6 at Stumps on Day 1!

We are all ready for the second session! This could turn out to be a very interesting session. We have Pant in the middle and surely he is not going to back out from playing his shots and if he gets going, things might drift out of Bangladesh hands very quickly. However, if Bangladesh manage to get rid of Pant early, then they can strengthen their hold on this Test match and build more pressure on India. Bangladesh players are out there in the middle and Cheteshwar Pujara and Rishabh Pant too stride out to the middle now. Ebadot Hossain to start with the ball. Here we go...
… DAY 1, SESSION 2 … 
India, on the other hand, after the start they got would not have expected to lose three wickets in this session. Both Shubman Gill and KL Rahul looked pretty comfortable in the middle before a miscalculated shot from Gill brought his downfall. The big guns, Rahul and Kohli followed soon and from 41-0, India were reduced to 48-3. However, Pant with his little counterattacking knock has provided some respite for India but they need the pair of Pujara and Pant to bat long now. It promises to be an enticing second session of this Test match and we will be back at 11.40 am IST (6.10 am GMT). Stay tuned.
A productive first session for Bangladesh! They have managed to pick three wickets in the session and have shown a lot of discipline and grit that is required in Test cricket. Taijul Islam delivered a beautiful spell as he usually does in Bangladesh and made things happen after Indian openers got off to a confident start. He got Gill first up and was ably supported by Khaled Ahmed who also bowled brilliantly in his second spell to get rid of the Indian skipper, KL Rahul. However, it was the wicket of Virat Kohli that has put Bangladesh right on top here and they would be looking to build on this momentum now.

We are back for India's second innings! Bangladesh players are out there in the middle now. Shubman Gill and KL Rahul are the openers for India. Khaled Ahmed to start the proceedings with the ball. Here we go...
... THIRD INNINGS ...
Bangladesh, on the other hand, have a lot to ponder about their batting in Test cricket. Their top order is failing to deliver way often and the batting collapses have become almost the usual story for them in this format. The debutant Zakir Hasan showed some composure and Litton Das and Mushfiqur Rahim who have been pretty good for Bangladesh in Test cricket in recent times also kept Bangldesh’s hopes alive for some time. Mehidy Hasan was another one who showed resistance but this short innings are just not good enough in Test cricket especially against a quality opponent like India. India have decided to bat again and let's see they go about their business in the second innings. Stay tuned.
India have not enforced a follow-on! They have a lead of 254. It took them 50 minutes to wrap up Bangladesh’s innings and have asserted their authority over this game. Kuldeep Yadav and Axar Patel took remaining two wickets and overall Kuldeep Yadav’s spin masterclass on Day 2 and his five-wicket haul along with Siraj’s disciplined seam bowling has taken India to a pole position in this game.

We are all ready for the start of Day 3! The Indian team is in the huddle and they disperse now to take their respective positions. Mehidy Hasan and Ebadot Hossain, the two overnight batters for Bangladesh have also made their way out to the middle. Kuldeep Yadav to start with the ball. Here we go...
Shreyas Iyer is down for a quick chat. He says that he is fortunate about starting his Test career on a good note. Tells that he is looking forward to the challenge and whenever he wakes up in the morning he just tries to have a good day in the office. Mentions that he tries to stay in the present and he does not think what bowlers are going to bowl unless he is set. Adds that he tries to play the situation and tries to bail his team out and he likes that challenge.Mentions that he is absolutely unhappy about not getting a century and tells that when you are batting on 80-odd overnight, you think a lot about the next day and feels that he freezed a bit there. Adds that he showed good temperament on Day 2 apart from some shots. Mentions that they try to keep the atmosphere right when they are fielding and also try to talk with the batters to affect their concentration and they just try to keep the atmosphere calm.
Bangladesh, well they are currently on 133/8 and still trail by a mammoth 271 runs. They lost 6 wickets in the final session and India were almost there to bundle the opponents but Ebadot Hossain and Mehidy Hasan put up a partnership of 31 runs and put the gates down. They will have to come up with something magical to get back into the game. Can they pull a rabbit out of the hat? We will find out shortly. Stay tuned as a crucial morning session of Day 3 is coming up.
India ultimately finished on 404, courtesy of the 92-run partnership between Ravichandran Ashwin and Kuldeep Yadav. The Bangladesh bowlers got Shreyas Iyer early on but just couldn't break Ashwin and Kuldeep Yadav's partnership. India’s bowling unit was just unstoppable then as they ran havoc with a deadly combination of quality pace and spin bowling.  Mohammed Siraj (3 for 14) and Kuldeep Yadav (4 for 33) were the stars with the ball and India would like to continue in the same vain in this morning session of Day 3.
Hello and a warm welcome to Day 3 of the first Test match between Bangladesh and India. It is the visitors who have had a better sleep last night and the hosts would be busy making the plans to get out of hole they have put themselves into with some poor batting. Day 1 was evenly poised but the Day 2 was completely dominated by the visitors. Bangladesh would need to come up with something special now if they have to claw their way back into the game.
…Day 3, Session 1…
Bangladesh, well they need to show better application and skills with the bat if they want to compete at the Test level. This has been a perennial problem of Bangladesh cricket and they have been very heavily dependent on Rahim and Das in this format and that was the case even in this innings. All other batters looked completely clueless and all the hard work done by their bowlers has been undone. Taijul Islam and Mehidy Hasan were the one who took four wickets each but if they want to make a comeback in this game on Day 3, they need to certainly bat better. Day 3 will start at 9 am IST (3.30 am GMT). Do join us early for the build-up. Cheers!
Kuldeep Yadav, the MAN OF THE MOMENT is down for a quick chat. He says that he was very nervous at the start but he loved it in the end and he was getting a proper turn. Adds that he just tried to be quicker and he is just going with the flow. Says that the first over was quite difficult but the end ones were really good and he didn't feel any discomfort during batting. Ends by saying that it's a good pitch and he will give his best.
India came into Day 2 with six down and with Iyer and Ashwin still at the crease. The lost Iyer early in the day but Ashwin showed his class yet again and stitched together a 92-run stand with Kuldeep Yadav as Indian managed to cross the 400 run-mark. With the ball, Siraj set the momentum with a wicket on the very first delivery and Umesh too got an early wicket with the new ball. However, the real bowling show started after Tea as India just did not let Bangladesh breathe easily and first Siraj with his two wickets and then Kuldeep Yadav with an extraordinary spell of spin bowling completely bamboozled Bangla Tigers. He took four wickets and has shown once agan why he is rated so highly. India just need to do what they have done so far and we might even see this game finishing on Day 3.
India have picked up 6 wickets in the final session and they have now taken a pole position in this game. It was always going to be tough for the Bangladeshi batters on this tricky pitch but they need to show some application with the bat as a Test side. They are 271 runs behind now with just 2 wickets in hand and could well be made to follow-on on Day 3.

We are back for the final session of Day 2! Indian players are out there in the huddle and after some last-minute tips by the skipper KL Rahul, they disperse to take their respective positions. Zakir Hasan and Litton Das, the two Bangladeshi batters are also out there to resume their innings. Ravichandran Ashwin to start the proceedings with the ball. Here we go...
…Day 2, Session 3… 
Bangladesh, on the other hand had something to cheer about in the end of the session with Litton Das paying some delightful shots. However, it won’t be easy for them as they gave away over 400 runs with the ball when they could have restricted India to much less. The start then was disastrous with the bat as they lost Shanto on the very first delivery and Yasir Ali too could not last long. However, Das and debutant Zakir Hasan are looking solid in the middle and they need to show some character and skills to fight it out in the middle in the final session of the day. We shall be back at 2 pm IST (8.30 am GMT) to see how things unfold in the post-Tea session. 
India have taken two wickets early in this tricky little period for the Bangladesh batters and must have bagged another session in this Test match. Earlier in the session, India were bowled out for 404 but not before the Ashwin-Kuldeep Yadav 92-run stand for the 8th wicket frustrated the hosts and took India to a total that looks quite formidable on this pitch. Bangladesh, needed a good start with the bat but Siraj and Umesh made sure that they have one wicket each before the new ball loses its shine. India would be hoping to make more inroads as their spinners would be looking to take he command.
