    A tiring and forgetful day for Bangladesh. They struggled with the bat and barring the wicket of Rohit Sharma they have had nothing to cherish with the ball. The bowlers have had to toil hard and with a below par score on board that is always a struggle for the bowlers. They though need to keep their focus and come back stronger on Day 2.

    STUMPS ON DAY ONE! India 86/1, with Agarwal batting on 37 and Pujara on 43. India’s day all the way. After bundling out Bangladesh for just 150 courtesy of a 3-fer from Shami and 2 wickets a piece for Ashwin, Umesh and Ishant. The hosts did not get off to a good start with the bat as they lost Rohit Sharma early. Mayank Agarwal and Pujara though then stuck in and built a 72-run unbeaten stand with Pujara being the aggressor.

    DROPPED! Such has been a day! Another one goes down! Agarwal gets a life. Imrul Kayes drops the easiest of chances that he can get. Good length ball on off from Jayed, Mayank pokes at it from inside the crease. He gets an outside edge which goes to Kayes at first slip. He makes a mess of it as the ball pops out of his hands.

    India continue to dominate proceedings! FOUR! Taijul bowls a flat delivery around off, Agarwal plays another late cut towards the third man region and picks up another boundary. 50-run partnership is up between the two and it has come in double quick time.

    Pujara is on song here! Spinner Taijul Islam has conceded three fours in an over; all against Pujara. 12 runs in the over as India move to 47 after 15 overs.

    FOUR! Cracker of a shot from Pujara! His first four in this innings. Taijul bowls a flighted ball outside off, Pujara reaches the line of the delivery and creams the drive through extra cover for a boundary.

    WICKET! India one down! CAUGHT! Rohit, the man in form, goes back to the pavilion. Bangladesh strike early and they will be happy to see the back of the Hitman. Jayed bowls a full delivery outside off, Rohit goes for an expansive drive from the crease but gets an outside edge. Liton Das makes no mistake behind the stumps and pouches it safely.

    Bangladesh ALL OUT for 150: It’s been a catastrophic third session for Bangladesh, who have lost their last six wickets for 10 runs to be bowled out for 150. India needed under 15 minutes to wrap things up. Ishant Sharma struck with the first ball after tea and from there on, it was been a total letdown. Taijul Islam was run out to a bullet throw by Ravindra Jadeja from the deep before Umesh picked up the final wicket.

    Shami Ends Session With a Bang: The second session ends with Mohammed Shami producing two peaches resulting in two wickets. The first one goes through and plucks a set Mushfiqur Rahim’s off stump. The Next ball is fuller and filled with movement, that raps Mehidy Hasan stone dead in front of the stumps. Bangladesh all over the place at 140/7. What more? Shami will be on a hat-trick once play resumes.

    WICKET: Well, that drop won’t haunt India or torment Ashwin for long. Mahmudullah’s uncomfortable stay comes to an end with a pretty bizarre shot selection. Goes too far across the line and misses a sweep off Ashwin. TIMBER! Bangladesh slip to 115/5

India vs Bangladesh, 1st Test, Day 1: What to Expect

It’s game time, folks! Hello and welcome to Day 1 of the first Test between India and Bangladesh to be played at Indore’s Holkar Stadium. This obviously is the first – the more low-profile of the two Tests – since all the focus is on the historic Day-Night second Test. But as Virat Kohli rightly pointed out, before the team dwells into the complications of the pink ball, there is a red-ball Test to play and India, who last lost at Test at home in early 2017 are looking favourites to extend their supremacy at home.

Bangladesh are not expected to do great things, especially in the absence of Shakib Al Hasan and Tamim Iqbal. They are hurting from the loss against Afghanistan not too long ago and under Mominul Haque, will be eyeing a fresh start. All that a a lot more to come. Follow this space to stay updated.
