Day 3: Stumps – India need 100 runs






India end Day 3 on 45/4

That’s that then for the moving Day 3! 7 wickets fell in the final session, and more notably, 4 of them belonged to India. Bangladesh folded for 231 after a fight from the lower order but only managed to set India a target of 145, but the bowlers stepped up. Particularly, Mehidy Hasan Miraz who dismissed Pujara, Gill and Kohli. India still need 100 runs to win and secure the series 2-0. Over to Day 4 on Sunday!

India are four down!

Bangladesh are delirious now! There’s wild celebrations, one that seems to have irked Kohli too. But they won’t care. They’ve got rid of India’s top four! Rahul – gone, Pujara – gone, Gill – gone, Kohli – GONE! India are 38 for 4 in chase and have Axar Patel and Jaydev Unadkat to fend of what’s left of this incredible day of cricket in Dhaka.

Kohli pressed forward to defend a ball from Mehidy but ended up inside edging it. An alert and agile Mominul Haque dived and completed a fabulous one-handed catch to send the former captain back.

Pujara falls!

Bangladesh are ecstatic! Pujara gave Mehidy Hasan the charge but without making up his mind if he was going to defend or drive it away. The result was a stumping.

Pressure and wicket!

Shakib Al Hasan breaks through in just his second over, and you can see the delight in the celebrations. Bangladesh began with left-arm spin from both ends, and have reaped an early reward here. KL Rahul nicked a tossed up ball that turned sharply away from him to Nurul Hasan.

Bangladesh bowled out for 231. India need 145 to win

Ashwin strikes to remove Taijul Islam, trapping him leg before. Khaled Ahmed was then run out to end Bangladesh’s innings on 231, giving India a target of 145.

Litton falls

That ends his long fight. Litton Das is cleaned up by a crackerjack from Mohammed Siraj. The length ball jags back in sharply to beat his defence and clatter onto the stumps. Litton departs on 73 with Bangladesh leading by 132.

Taskin survives

A review comes to the aid of Taskin after Siraj gets an onfield LBW call in his favour. But he was coming from over the wicket to the left-hander there, and the ball angled across. Replays confirm that the ball was pitching well outside leg stump. The partnership is well past fifty as India are made to strive hard again.

Nurul’s cameo ends

He’s thrown caution to the wind for 28 balls, but on the 29th, he departs giving Axar his third wicket. Axar mixed his lengths up smartly and drew Nurul out of his ground and beat his bat. Rishabh Pant did well to break the stumps quickly to catch Nurul short of his ground. He departs for 31 off 29, having dragged Bangladesh’s lead past 50.

Nurul Hasan counter attacks!

Umesh Yadav offered width to the new man and he gladly accepted it, cutting the ball for a four on the offside. He then welcomed Ashwin back into the attack by giving him the charge on the first ball to hit a six over long-on.

Axar makes it six!

The thorn in India’s flesh in the Chattogram Test has been plucked out early in Dhaka. Mehidy Hasan Miraz took Axar on by attempting the sweep shot but missed and was trapped leg before. This was a well laid out trap by India as they left big gaps on the leg side behind square, inviting the usually adventurous Mehidy to take the left-arm spinner on. He had to attempt to sweep a ball from outside the offstump and ended up paying the price for it.

Zakir Hasan falls after fifty!

That’s such a soft dismissal for the opener. He got to his half-century and then played a rash cut shot on an innocuous length ball from Umesh Yadav and ended up top-edging it to Siraj at third man.


Bangladesh go into the break at 71 for 4, still in arrears of the lead that India gained on Day 2 and perhaps wondering how best they can avoid a collapse against a fired-up bowling attack that hasn’t missed its mark this morning. Big second session coming up for the hosts.

FOUR Down!

Axar Patel gets his slider going! Mushfiqur Rahim went on his backfoot but failed to track the trajectory of the ball that just moved in instead of away and got struck on the front pad. The umpire raised his finger and Mushfiqur reviewed, more in hope than anything else. That was quashed in the following minutes, sending him packing for just 9.

Bangladesh stutter…

Shakib Al Hasan is gone early! Another soft dismissal for him as Unadkat strikes in his first over. Unadkat went for a length ball that stuck a little to the wicket and Shakib ended up having to check his drive. He ended up chipping it straight to Shubman Gill at cover.

Siraj strikes…

Mominul Haque is gone. Siraj has his wicket. The Indian pacer angled one into the left-hander that straightened a touch, and squared up the batter who was on the move to play a drive against a ball that wasn’t full enough. He ended up feathering it to Pant behind.

One wicket and two burned reviews…

This has been an entertaining start… if you’re an Indian fan that is. Ravichandran Ashwin’s got sharp turn and extra bounce – two ingredients for him to run havoc against most batting line-ups. He troubled the left-handed Najmul Hossain Shanto and got one to turn sharply to him on the elbow to trigger a big LBW appeal. After some deliberation, Rahul went upstairs but ended up losing a review as the ball flew over the stumps.

Just the next ball, Ashwin once again trapped Najmul in front and this time the umpires sided with the former, leading to a Bangladesh review which was also ended up being burned. Najmul walked off for 5 off 31. In the following over, Mohammed Siraj was convinced he had Zakir Hasan trapped leg before and coaxed Rahul to take a review, much against his wishes. Even Rishabh Pant wasn’t sure and rightly so as replays showed that the ball had pitched way outside the leg stump. India have an early wicket but have already lost two of their three reviews with so much of this innings still to go.

Prelude – Where’s this Test heading?

Welcome to the day when tables turn, narratives flip and a clear direction where the game is headed is revealed. Welcome to Day 3 – the moving day!

Rishabh Pant and Shreyas Iyer counterattacked well to earn a crucial 86-run lead to put the pressure back on the home side that bowled well largely on Day 2. The Bangladesh openers then played out six overs at the very end for 7 runs and now need to go from there today. The first target will be to wipe out the 80-run deficit and then go from there to make a match of this fixture.
