TOTAL166 Ov (RR: 4.13, 659 Mins)687/6d
Fall of wickets: 1-2 (KL Rahul, 0.4 ov), 2-180 (Cheteshwar Pujara, 50.5 ov), 3-234 (Murali Vijay, 63.4 ov), 4-456 (Ajinkya Rahane, 113.3 ov), 5-495 (Virat Kohli, 125.1 ov), 6-569 (Ravichandran Ashwin, 140.3 ov)
0.4 to KL Rahul, plays on! He goes for a drive through cover, seeing a full ball outside off, but it's a pretty loose shot. The footwork isn't there. The weight is on his back foot. Only the hands go into the shot and an inside edge results so that Taskin can exult. 2/1
50.5 to CA Pujara, but he's gone right after the record, trying to defend, gets a thick outside edge, which hits the top flap of the wicketkeeper's pad and jumps up for him to have a second grab. Musfiqur has the presence of mind to watch it all the way as he dives to his right. 180/2
140.3 to R Ashwin, plays for the turn and pushes at the ball as it drifts away in the air and holds its line. Thick outside edge goes to the left of slip, where Sarkar gets both hands to it and it sticks. Good catch. And Ashwin walks off, wriging his hands at falling to a trick he himself has used many times over. 569/6
63.4 to M Vijay, bowled around the legs! Poor execution of the lap sweep. A touch too full for the shot in the first place, but having made the move to plant his front leg outside off to avoid lbw, and get into the position he needs to play off the stumps, he does not make any connection. That means the ball has a free path to skip along and hit middle. Top innings from Vijay, bit of a silly end though.. 234/3
113.3 to AM Rahane, taken at short cover! Magnificent effort from Mehedi, rushing to his left, diving full-length, and I think he picks it up behind him. Rahane plays away from his body, and is surprised by a little turn and bounce. There's even a puff of dust. No celebrations from Bangladesh. The bowler, Taijul just looks expressionless. The catcher, Mehedi, just put his head down in relief for having clung on. 456/4
125.1 to V Kohli, he's lbw, Kohli walks off. Doesn't bother reviewing because he knows this is pad first. Been trying to late cut fuller deliveries on off stump for a while now. And the risk catches up with him. Tajiul gets in the quicker delivery, on the right length, doesn't lose the pace after pitching, which could have saved the batsman. One of the few mistakes in a nearly flawless innings. But wait, replays indicate the impact with the pad is outside the off stump. Didn't look it on first sight, and that's all umpire Erasmus had. 495/5

TOTAL127.5 Ov (RR: 3.03, 535 Mins)388
Fall of wickets: 1-38 (Soumya Sarkar, 11.2 ov), 2-44 (Tamim Iqbal, 16.4 ov), 3-64 (Mominul Haque, 24.1 ov), 4-109 (Mahmudullah, 34.4 ov), 5-216 (Shakib Al Hasan, 62.1 ov), 6-235 (Sabbir Rahman, 71.1 ov), 7-322 (Mehidy Hasan Miraz, 104.4 ov), 8-339 (Taijul Islam, 113.5 ov), 9-378 (Taskin Ahmed, 124.3 ov), 10-388 (Mushfiqur Rahim, 127.5 ov)
104.4 to Mehidy Hasan Miraz, straight through. Full and straight from Bhuvneshwar, swings back in, but the key was late swing. Mehedi's feet haven't been moving too well this morning and against good quality swing bowling, it's always dangerous. A huge bat-pad gap is found and the swing creeps through to knock back leg stump.. 322/7
34.4 to Mahmudullah, gives it lbw, inswing works. Mahmudullah checks with his partner, points at his thigh and then goes for a review. This is a good length ball, seaming in off the pitch, and that leaves the batsman defending down the wrong line. He's hit on the top of the back pad, that leg is bent a bit. HawkEye shows it is clipping leg stump and the decision from umpire Wilson stands. 109/4
62.1 to Shakib Al Hasan, this has been happening way too often with Shakib. He gets set. He looks to dominate, then he plays a poor shot. A low percentage shot. Comes down the track, doesn't reach the pitch, still goes for the loft, against the turn, mis-hits to mid-on. The exactly way he fell on a crucial final day's play in New Zealand when they were desperately trying to survive and hold on for a draw. And Ashwin has his wicket, doing very little other than being persistent and waiting for the batsman to make the mistake. 216/5
127.5 to Mushfiqur Rahim, and gone! Caught down the leg side. Flat delivery, a carrom ball down leg, Rahim looks to sweep but gets a bit of glove on that. Saha takes a fantastic catch and Ashwin gets to 250 Test wickets, he's the fastest to the landmark. End of a superb innings from Rahim, carried Bangladesh to a decent total against a strong attack. That will be lunch too.. 388/10
11.2 to Soumya Sarkar, whoa! This is a 142 kph jaffa, and India believe they have a caught behind. Go for a review. Magnificent ball first up from Umesh, pitching fullish on off stump, and swinging in between the bat and pad. Too quick for Sarkar's defences as he comes forward with a lazy drive on the up towards mid-off. UltraEdge says there's a bottom edge and Sarkar's gone. Seems like this review came out of the confidence of Pujara at mid-on, saying there was a nick, and Vijay as well at midwicket. Kohli at cover also seems to have heard something. Saha, the keeper, didn't even appeal. He just did the other most important thing, diving low to his right to pick up the catch.. 38/1
24.1 to Mominul Haque, another big appeal for lbw, and umpire Wilson gives it. Mominul walks as well, so he doesn't think there is an inside edge. Umesh is on song, his length is so good this morning. Full, nipping back in off the pitch just enough to beat the bat and clang into the back pad, twice, in front of middle. That's plumb.. 64/3
113.5 to Taijul Islam, it works after a while. Taijul never looked comfortable against the short ball. India stuck with that length of attack. A short ball on middle and leg that just does not get up. Taijul gets his gloves up in front of his helmet, the ball kisses the glove en route to the keeper. It was not pretty with some wayward deliveries but the plan works.. 339/8
71.1 to Sabbir Rahman, he's given it out lbw but Sabbir goes to his partner to check, that indicates he has not hit it, Mushfiqur talks to his team-mate and then sends him on his way. This is a really full delivery on the stumps, to which Sabbir chooses to sweep. Not the right shot, and that's why he misses altogether. First impact with the front pad, then the back pad. He's in line with all three stumps. Looks like a pretty straightforward call from umpire Erasmus. 235/6
124.3 to Taskin Ahmed, edged and taken this time. Flat and quick outside off, Taskin gets forward but the ball carries on with the arm. Taskin plays for some turn but there isn't a lot. Gets a thick outside edge and Rahane takes a simple catch at first slip, Decent knock from Taskin. 378/9

Fall of wickets: 1-12 (Murali Vijay, 3.5 ov), 2-23 (KL Rahul, 5.4 ov), 3-90 (Virat Kohli, 16.5 ov), 4-128 (Ajinkya Rahane, 26.1 ov)
3.5 to M Vijay, ooh, again it's short, a little wider, and this time Vijay goes for the cut. Ends up top-edging to Mushfiqur and he begins to walk. The umpire tells him to wait, they want to check for no-ball. He's not overstepped, and India are one down. 12/1
5.4 to KL Rahul, gone, another batsman edges a short, wide ball. This time Rahul goes for a poke rather than a cut, wants to steer it between third man and deep point, I suppose, and sends a thick edge to Mushfiqur. 23/2
16.5 to V Kohli, down the track, and this time he's gone. Gets too close to the pitch of the ball to get the elevation he wants, plays a bottom-handed whip that ends up in Mahmudullah's hands, over his head, at midwicket. 90/3
26.1 to AM Rahane, clean through. Rahane stepped out, looking for an across-the-line swipe. The ball drifted on without turn and beat the wild swing of Rahane. Knocked back middle stump. An unsurprising dismissal considering the areas Rahane wanted to hit the ball to. 128/4

Fall of wickets: 1-11 (Tamim Iqbal, 5.2 ov), 2-71 (Soumya Sarkar, 21.6 ov), 3-75 (Mominul Haque, 24.1 ov), 4-106 (Shakib Al Hasan, 37.3 ov), 5-162 (Mushfiqur Rahim, 52.4 ov), 6-213 (Sabbir Rahman, 70.4 ov), 7-225 (Mahmudullah, 76.3 ov), 8-242 (Mehidy Hasan Miraz, 90.4 ov), 9-249 (Taijul Islam, 97.5 ov), 10-250 (Taskin Ahmed, 100.3 ov)
5.2 to Tamim Iqbal, big big appeal. No, says umpire Joel Wilson. Was it caught? Kohli had taken that. Kohli reviews. Flat on off and middle, Tamin gets right forward and inside-edges the ball into his front pad. The ball then lobs up towards Kohli at gully, who takes the ball and appeals. The umpire will have to overturn his decision. Some have been turning, some haven't in this innings already. That one didn't. Kohli was particularly adamant that the batsman had hit that, asked Saha for confirmation and went for the review. Good assertive captaincy.. 11/1
24.1 to Mominul Haque, and strikes immediately! Mominul doesn't really get in much of a front-foot stride, and that is a good thing sometimes when you're guarding against lbw on a slow pitch. But Ashwin isn't aiming for lbw here. He floats it up on leg stump, and Mominul's short stride finds him a long way from the pitch of a ball that turns sharply, and his attempt at a defensive push results in an outside edge and another catch for Rahane at slip. 75/3
52.4 to Mushfiqur Rahim, that's one shot too much. Ashwin has sensed that the batsman wants to attack him, so he pulls the length back just enough. Disguises it though, by ensuring it is still a tossed up delivery. Mushfiqur rushes down the track, doesn't get to the pitch, still backs himself to clear mid-off, but mistimes his shot badly. Easy catch to the fielder running back and Ashwin celebrates by waving both his hands in the air to soak in the applause from the school kids. 162/5
100.3 to Taskin Ahmed, tosses it up, massively, and Taskin tries to flick, seems to miss the ball and opens himself up for an lbw appeal. Umpire Erasmus says wait, and then goes to check with his partner. Finally, he tags in the third umpire, and the soft signal is out. No bat there, so the catch should go out the window. They don't check the lbw though, not out flashes on the screen. But wait, Kohli has reviewed for lbw. So two reviews for the same ball. Pitched in line with leg, straightens enough to hit the front pad in line, and crashes into the stumps too. Three reds. India win. 250/10
70.4 to Sabbir Rahman, traps him in front of the stumps. Erasmus gives it lbw, but Sabbir wants a second look, goes for a review. This looks plumb though, unless there's bat involved. And there is nothing there. This is a good length ball, pitching outside off, coming in with the angle, stays a touch low, and beats the batsman's straight-bat defence. Should he have been playing back? Well, considering the ball didn't rise as much as he thought, he couldn't have done much with it. 213/6
76.3 to Mahmudullah, found long leg with a top-edged pull. What's with Ishant and short balls? This originally doesn't look threatening, which is why Mahmudullah sets up for the pull, but then it climbs on him, cramps him for room, and so he mistimes the shot. Who knew it'd be the quicks doing the damage on the last day of a Hyderabad Test?. 225/7
21.6 to Soumya Sarkar, gone! Perfect length outside off, comes forward to defend, playing for slightly more turn than there was. Ends up defending with a slightly open face and it rolls off the outside half of it to the right of Rahane at slip. He takes it excellently, it was going quick, and he falls to his right and grabs it one-handed. 71/2
37.3 to Shakib Al Hasan, that's the bulls-eye, you know Jadeja's accurate and here is proof. There's a little patch of rough on a good length outside the off stump and he absolutely nails it. There's a massive explosion of dust, as the ball lurches at Shakib, who despite being deep in his crease, is undone by the turn and bounce, hits the top glove and goes to short leg. Smart catch as well, from Pujara. 106/4
90.4 to Mehidy Hasan Miraz, given caught behind and Mehedi is walking off. Massive turn and bounce with the new ball. This is quick, pitching just outside off, and ripping away past the middle of the bat as he tries to defend. Top take from Saha, rising up with the ball, his gloves at his chest when he takes it. Was there an edge though? Needs confirmation from technology. And Ultra-edge says there is glove. That's why the batsman didn't review. 242/8
97.5 to Taijul Islam, ooof, this is a top-edged pull and two fielders are getting under it, neither is backing out, and both of them grab at the ball. Luckily for India, Rahul clings on despite the interference from Vijay. The best reaction to all this comes from Jadeja, who just goes down on his haunches and slaps his hand to his forehead, laughing uncontrollably.. 249/9
