Mohammad Rafique to Karthik, 1 run, that's the ton! width outside off stump, Karthik shapes to cut, which he does perfectly and the ball beats point. After four half centuries, including a 93 against Pakistan at Eden Gardens, Karthik finally registers his maiden ton. He really is a find for India, that too as an opener. Well done!

That's lunch on the second day. Bangladesh did eventually get a wicket but India continued from where they left off. Dravid showed some urgency this morning while Tendulkar played second fiddle. His knock was chancy, witha few streaky pulls but he will take it. Karthik will be expected to pick up the pace when they return and help force an early declaration.

Note: Some of you have politely notified me for forgetting to mention Tendulkar's fifty. Apologies!

While we wait for resumption do read Mukul Kesavan's piece on the omission of VVS Laxman.

125.5

Mashrafe Mortaza to Tendulkar, no run, short ball but that doesn't get up too much, 80mph that time and Tendulkar ducks, only to see the ball bob up tamely. The wicketkeeper gathers it low down

125.6

Mashrafe Mortaza to Tendulkar, no run, that's a fierce bouncer that time, short and jagging back in alarmingly, full effort on that one and Tendulkar weaves out of the way in the last moment. That was a snorter and Tendulkar was surprised there

Time for some drinks, after nine overs of resumption. It's both hot and humid out there so fair enough it seems

127.2

Mashrafe Mortaza to Karthik, 1 run, dropped tough chance for the wicketkeeper as Karthik is rooted to the crease and edges to his right. Mashud dives to his right but can't get to it in time and deflects it like a goalkeeper. Mashud was slow on that one, not much anticipation there and he muffs the catch.

128.1

Mohammad Rafique to Tendulkar, no run, glided to fine leg for an easy single

A small girl holds up a banner which reads: "No. 38 for Sachin". It's going to be his 37th hundred but that is not specified in the banner. She's probably talking about the number of times he's walked a single in this innings. Or maybe not

Sabarath chimes in: "At nearly 50% strike-rate and when Sachin has scored 80 runs, I realise that Sachin is still searching for his form. while one should not expect the same from him, I dont see him adapting or changing his style. The last thing i want from him is a retirement now, but the next best his change his style which looks he is adamant not changing."

129.1

Mashrafe Mortaza to Karthik, 1 run, angling in into the pads and Karthik whips it away behind square for the simplest of singles

129.2

Mashrafe Mortaza to Tendulkar, no run, the short ball ploy will continue, it appears. This is slightly short and Tendulkar stands back and tries to force it to the off side, gets only the bottom of the bat and trickles back to the bowler

129.3

Mashrafe Mortaza to Tendulkar, no run, short again, and yet again it doesn't rise as much as expected. Tendulkar is caught in two minds, not sure whether to duck or sway out of the way and just evades the ball in the last minute. He's taken his eyes off the ball too. Not the pitch to duck it seems ...

129.4

Mashrafe Mortaza to Tendulkar, 1 run, glided to third man for a single

129.5

Mashrafe Mortaza to Karthik, OUT, another short ball and Karthik falls for the pull shot yet again, tries to pull it over midwicket but the ball takes the top edge and soars high to midwicket for a simple catch. He was out playing the pull in the first Test as well and this is a repeat

Sudheer says: "The common refrain over the past few years regarding Sachin's slow batting is that he is playing for the team. When the team is at 100/3...he bats at 50% strike rate, and the reason they give is, he has to be careful and hold the lower-order. When the score is 400/1 like today..whats holding him back? This is wahts driving indian cricket fans crazy"
