New Delhi | Jagran Sports Desk:  India bowled out Bangladesh for 213 to record an innings and 130-run victory in the first Test, here on Saturday. India declared their first innings at 493 for 6 after bowling out Bangladesh for 150 in the visitor's first essay. In their second innings, Bangladesh was bundled out for 213.

Mushfiqur Rahim (53 not out) and Mehidy Hasan (38 not out) forged a crucial seventh-wicket stand as Bangladesh posted 191/6, trailing by 152 runs at Tea on Day 3 of the first Test in Indore. Mahmudullah and Liton Das were the only wickets to fall in the second session. 

Mohammed Shami took two wickets while Ishant Sharma and Umesh Yadav got one each as India remained firmly in control of their first Test against Bangladesh at the end of the first session of Day 3.

India declared overnight with a lead of 343 and left Bangladesh reeling at 60/4 at Lunch. Bangladesh lost their first wicket in the sixth over of the day, with Umesh taking off Imrul Kayes' leg stump. In the very next over Ishant bowled through Kayes' opening partner Shadman Islam's defense and hit middle and leg.

The visitors did not have any reprieve after that with Virat Kohli shooting his pacers at them. In the 13th over, Bangladesh skipper Mominul Haque seemingly got a lifeline when the umpire did not raise his finger for an LBW appeal off Mohammed Shami.

 

Kohli went for the review, however, and replays showed that the ball would have hit the leg stump. The Bangladesh captain walked for 7 and his team was 37/3 in 13 overs. Two overs later, Shami bowled a bouncer at Mohammad Mithun which the latter could only lift straight into the hands of Mayank Agarwal at midwicket.

Mushfiqur Rahim and Mahmudullah held on after that to see Bangladesh through to lunch. The pair have put 16 runs for the fifth wicket, just four runs short of Bangladesh's best partnership so far which was between Mithun and Mominul for the third wicket. They trail by 283 runs.

Bangladesh loses both the openers early. Umesh Yadav and Ishant Sharma pick one each. Struggling Bangladesh is now 33/2 with 310 runs behind India.

India declared their first innings before the first ball of Day 3 at an overnight score of 493 for 6 in reply to Bangladesh's 150 in the opening Test here on Saturday. Ravindra Jadeja and Umesh Yadav remained unbeaten on 60 and 25 respectively. India lead by 343 runs.

Day 2 Recap

Mayank Agarwal struck his second double century in four Tests as India built a giant 343 first-innings lead over Bangladesh on day two of their opening Test. The 28-year-old opener, who has hit three tons including two double hundreds in his last five Test innings, hit eight sixes and 28 fours in his 243.

Agarwal passed 200 with a six off Mehidy Hasan and went on with his big hits until he was finally caught at deep mid-wicket by Abu Jayed off Mehidy. He left to another standing ovation.

 

India was 493 for six at stumps in response to Bangladesh's 150 all out on Thursday. Ravindra Jadeja, on 60, and Umesh Yadav, on 25, were at the crease promising more fireworks.
