Match State: Innings Break

India manage 164, thanks to some meaty blows dealt by R Sathish towards the end. But Bangladesh will fancy their chances here. They got off to a good start against World XI in their last game only to have it squandered by the middle-order, but will hope to do better today. 164 is a chaseable score; India scaled down a similar target against Pakistan yesterday.
