Hello and welcome to the live coverage of the third day of the first test between India and Bangladesh in Indore.
RECAP, DAY 2:
Mayank Agarwal reached his second double century in four tests, when India built a gigantic 343 first lead entrances over Bangladesh on the second day of its opening test. The 28-year-old opener, who has hit three tons, including two hundred doubles in his last five races, has beaten eight six and 28 fours in his 243. Agarwal has surpassed 200 with six out of Mehidy Hasan and continued his big hits. until he was finally caught in the middle of the wicket by Abu Jayed out of Mehidy. He went out for another standing ovation.
India went from 493 to six stumps in response to Bangladesh's 150 on Thursday. Ravindra Jadeja, 60, and Umesh Yadav, 25, were in the crease promising more fireworks.
Jadeja celebrated with his trademark sword dance when he reached half a century in 72 balls, while Yadav hit three six in his 10 ball blitz. Left-handed Jadeja continued the attack after a 123-race partnership with Agarwal for the fourth wicket.
Agarwal also made 190 with Ajinkya Rahane, who fired at 86 after the hosts resumed the day with 86 by one.
Rahane became the fourth goalkeeper Abu Jayed's fourth casualty shortly after the tea break. But Agarwal has tirelessly reached the limits after completing his second score of over 200 in his eighth test appearance since his debut last year in Melbourne. His previous best performance was 215 in the first test against South Africa last month.
Agarwal's marathon crash calmed the Indian nerves after Captain Virat Kohli went out to give a duck – the tenth in 83 tests – in the first session.
Abu, who had Rohit Sharma opened for six on Thursday, caught Cheteshwar Pujara (54) arrested in a ravine shortly after the night's scout completed his fifty with a limit. But it was Kohli's post that briefly brought joy to Bangladesh after they successfully analyzed an appeal rejected by the referee. Repetitions indicated that the ball would have reached the leg stump.
India's players, led by Mohammed Shami, who led three wickets, dealt with Bangladesh on the first day of the two-game series after the tourists won the draw but chose to hit a green wicket first.
