Ebadot Hossain2127013.339310002
97.6 to SS Iyer, bowled'im and Ebadot gets the reward for his persistence by getting the big wicket of Iyer. Short of length and jagging in slightly towards off stump, Iyer stays still and plays just inside the line in front of off stump to get beaten on the outside edge. The ball knocks over top of off. 293/7
Khaled Ahmed2034312.15924000
18.1 to KL Rahul, Rahul has chopped on! Lack of bounce is what might have resulted to this but he also played way outside the line of the ball. Khaled Ahmed leaps in delight! It was a length ball with a hint of away movement, Rahul opened the face of the bat to steer it to the point region but only got a thick inside edge as the ball didn't rise much. He is disappointed. 45/2
Shakib Al Hasan1242602.16584000
Taijul Islam461013342.8920714200
13.2 to Shubman Gill, Taijul strikes. Full on the leg stump, Gill shapes up early for the paddle sweep, giving a signal to the first slip to come around. Moreover, he gets a top edge and has little power on the shot. As a result, the ball just lobs up and the first slip fielder, who by now is at the leg slip position, gobbles it up. 41/1
19.3 to V Kohli, sharp turn, trapped right in front, it's plumb! The finger went up immediately but Kohli walks down to chat with Pujara and reviews with just three seconds to go. There's no bat for sure, confirms UltraEdge. Not sure why he reviewed that. Beautiful ball by Taijul, a slightly round-arm action from around the wicket, pitches it on leg and the length is perfect to make it turn a fait bit towards middle. Kohli is stuck on the back foot trying to work it to leg by opening up but he's beaten by the ball turning square and struck right in front of middle stump. 48/3
84.2 to CA Pujara, Taijul is rewarded for his hardwork and it pays off with Pujara's wicket for 90. Taijul has beaten Pujara several times today with such deliveries and came so close to getting Pujara out, but the batter always survived. This time the slightly flatter ball pitches on middle and turns just enough to beat the outside edge but not miss the stumps like it did a few times earlier in the day. Taijul's delivery knocks over off stump and dislodges the bail, unlike Ebadot. 261/5
132.5 to Kuldeep Yadav, Kuldeep is pretty much walking as that looks plumb, and then he decides to review the out decision. Trapped right in front of middle stump, plumb as anything, as he moves across to off and is hit in front of middle stump, you can see his leg stump too. Ball-tracking shows it's hitting and Kuldeep walks back eventually. 393/9
Mehidy Hasan Miraz31.5611243.5114010400
31.4 to RR Pant, Miraz strikes back! Pant has played on. A length ball around off and it keeps coming in with the arm. Pant was back and tried to steer it behind point. But all he managed was a bottom edge that bounces near his foot before dislodging the off bail. 112/4
89.6 to AR Patel, Mehidy's magic has worked, he has a wicket on the last ball of the day with an lbw as the finger goes up. Axar chats with Iyer with the clock counting down and reviews with two seconds left. Looked plumb to me assuming there's no edge otherwise he would have reviewed straightaway. This one also came in with the angle after pitching on off, went past the inside edge as Axar leaned forward to block and hit him on the back pad. No edge confirms UltraEdge and ball-tracking shows it's clipping leg stump, so it's umpire's call, the decision stays out, and India won't lose the review. 278/6
131.2 to R Ashwin, the partnership is broken! Ashwin comes down the pitch for a big swing but Mehidy slows that down a fair bit and Ashwin misses it completely outside off. Nurul collects it and waits and waits until Ashwin comes back close to the crease before taking the bails off. 385/8
133.5 to Mohammed Siraj, and India's innings comes to an end. Down the track but is nowhere near to the pitch of the ball. Siraj still goes with the shot, the bottom hand coming off the handle as he skies it towards long-on. Mushfiqur comes in and completes the catch falling on his back. 404/10

Mohammed Siraj1322031.53662000
0.1 to Najmul Hossain Shanto, and guess what? Siraj has struck with his very first ball. A length ball just outside off, just holds its line. Shanto hangs his bat out, gets an outside edge and Pant takes a good catch diving to his left, reverse cups. 0/1
13.2 to Litton Das, Siraj gets Litton's wicket and puts his finger on the lips! Siraj targets the stumps by jagging one in slightly and Litton thinks he has done enough to defend with a straight bat but the ball goes off the bottom edge and hits the stumps. Litton had his bat close to pad but the ball kind of went under. 39/3
17.2 to Zakir Hasan, excellent ball that holds its line outside off and Zakir pokes and edges it behind. It's the angle from around the wicket and the line just outside off that makes Zakir play. He sticks his bat out, the ball straightens after pitching because of a wobbly seam and takes the edge for Pant. 56/4
Umesh Yadav813314.12336000
3.3 to Yasir Ali, the leg stump goes cartwheeling. Short of length around off, at 139kph. Yasir pushes at it, playing away from the body. The ball keeps a touch low as well, resulting in an inside edge that clatters into the leg stump. 5/2
Ravichandran Ashwin1013403.40454100
Kuldeep Yadav1664052.50785100
24.2 to Shakib Al Hasan, Kuldeep strikes with his second ball! Some flight on leg and Shakib comes well out of the crease to clip it to leg before it can turn, but there's sharp turn and the ball takes a thick edge to Kohli at slip. 75/5
32.1 to Nurul Hasan, superb catch by Gill at short leg. A length ball on the pads, Nurul flicks it away but Gill shows great reflexes, just moves his hands to his right and pouches it, was around knee height. Gill is chuffed and understandably so. 97/6
34.2 to Mushfiqur Rahim, given lbw but Mushfiqur reviews it straightaway. Only an inside edge can save him here, I feel. Was full around off and spun past the inside edge to hit him low on the front pad. Wasn't turning too much. No bat involved. It pitched just outside off, the impact was in front of middle and it would have gone on to hit the leg stump. Bangladesh lose their seventh wicket as well as the review. 102/7
34.6 to Taijul Islam, chopped on! Was a googly from Kuldeep. Taijul was looking to cut it away but is cramped. I think it hit him on the bottom of the glove, and deflected onto the off stump. 102/8
48.5 to Ebadot Hossain, caught down the leg side. Kuldeep has a five-for. A length ball around off and spinning big past the batter. Ebadot looked a bit casual as he tried to flick it. A tickle and Pant does well to move around and pouch it. 144/9
Axar Patel8.541011.13481000
55.5 to Mehidy Hasan Miraz, down the track yet again and this time Mehidy misses it altogether. Beaten on the outside edge. Pant collects it down the leg side and effects an easy stumping. 150/10

Khaled Ahmed1305113.92525103
22.4 to KL Rahul, the short-ball play works. This was short and down the leg side. Rahul goes for the pull and plays it in the air. Was travelling to the left of Taijul at fine leg who hops and catches it. 70/1
Taijul Islam23.437103.00996000
Mehidy Hasan Miraz1418215.854812100
49.3 to Shubman Gill, tossed up on a good length outside off. Gill was down the ground and this time he goes with the shot, only to end up skying it towards deep midwicket. Mahmudul, the substitute, comes in from the deep and takes a tumbling catch. 183/2

Mohammed Siraj1946713.528710101
104.5 to Mehidy Hasan Miraz, playing on the up, away from the body accounts for Mehidy. It was a length ball, wide outside off. Mehidy still goes for the drive and ends up hitting uppishly to the backward point fielder. Umesh there takes it in front of his face. 283/7
Umesh Yadav1532711.80743000
46.1 to Najmul Hossain Shanto, dropped by Kohli, but taken by Pant! A relay catch breaks a solid stand. But the umpires will wait for confirmation, even as the soft signal is out, and Shanto is walking back. The ball came a bit high on Kohli's right, who tried to grab at that, but the ball popped out. Luckily for India, Pant was alert of what was happening, and quickly tumbled to his left to snaffle that one-handed at first before completing the catch by falling forward. It was a good length ball from Umesh, and slightly wide of off. Shanto finally lost his patience, and ended up poking at that to get an outside edge. 124/1
Ravichandran Ashwin2737512.771167000
78.2 to Zakir Hasan, Ashwin and his mates are celebrating, Zakir is walking back, but the umpire seems unsure of what has happened there. Ah, replays show there was inside edge, as Zakir went to defend this full and loopy ball dipping on middle and off. His bat was on off stump, as the ball ballooned off his pad towards first slip, where Kohli dived forward to complete a good low catch. A brilliantly-compiled innings comes to an end for Bangladesh. 208/4
Axar Patel32.2107742.381615400
49.6 to Yasir Ali, bowled him, the stumps lose their shape! Yasir looks bemused, and has to walk back. Axar darted in a good length ball on middle and off, and it seemed to turn away just enough to beat Yasir. He was defending on middle - perhaps not anticipating the turn - but the ball moved away so slightly that it almost surprised Yasir. 131/2
87.1 to Mushfiqur Rahim, the off stump is out of its groove! A length ball around middle and off, Mushfiqur goes back to defend it but it turns past his outside edge to crash into the off stick. India now five wickets away. 234/5
87.6 to Nurul Hasan, beaten on the outside edge and Pant has broken the stumps. He looks confident. The umpire refers it upstairs. Full this time, inviting the batter on the front foot. Nurul pushes at it and gets beaten by the turn. In the process, he had dragged his back foot out of the crease. Pant collects the ball and dislodges the bails, with Nurul's foot still out of the crease and in the air. 238/6
113.2 to Taijul Islam, bowled him! Axar bowls on a good length just outside off, as it turns back in to hit off stump and beat his angled bat, pushing to the off side. India take a 1-0 lead in the series, as victory by 188 runs confirms. 324/10
Kuldeep Yadav2037333.65909200
68.4 to Litton Das, Litton plays another risky shot at the stroke of tea, and pays the price with his wicket this time. It was another googly from Kuldeep. Litton went aerially but got neither the elevation nor the timing on this time. Ended up offering a simple catch to Umesh who was halfway to the boundary at long-on. 173/3
110.6 to Shakib Al Hasan, bowled 'im! A length ball, pitching on leg stump. Shakib goes for the another sweep but this time is nowhere near the ball, so had to try to drag it. Misses and the ball hits the top of middle. India two wickets away now. 320/8
112.5 to Ebadot Hossain, Nine down. Turning big from outside off, Ebadot looks to flick but the ball hits the inside half of the bat and goes straight into the hands of Iyer at short leg. 324/9
