Team India faced a tough challenge in their test match against Bangladesh, with the visitors fighting back to potentially win the series. India has been reduced to 45/4 in their 2nd innings, chasing a target of 145 runs set by Bangladesh.
Mehidy Hasan Miraj, who has repeatedly caused problems for India in the series, took 3 crucial wickets, while Shakib Al Hasan added another. India’s key players Rahul, Pujara, and Kohli have been dismissed, as well as in-form batsman Shubman Gill.
On the first day of the match, India took an 87-run lead in the 1st innings. Ravi Ashwin removed Najmul Shanto in the first over, and Mohammad Siraj and Jaydev Unadkat added a wicket each to bring Bangladesh to 71/4 at lunch.
After lunch, Mushfiqur Rahim and Zakir Hasan were dismissed after scoring a half-century, leaving Bangladesh only 15 runs ahead. Mehidy Hasan was also out for a duck, and Bangladesh fell to 113/6.
Nurul Hasan and Liton Das led a counter-attack for Bangladesh, with Liton scoring a half-century and Nurul making a quick 31 off 29 balls. After Axar Patel stumped Nurul, Taskin Ahmed joined Liton in frustrating the Indian team.
Liton and Taskin formed a 60-run partnership before India’s Siraj dismissed Das for 73. The tail didn’t last long, and Bangladesh was all out for 231, setting a target of 145 for India.
With the pitch continuing to deteriorate, India’s batsmen faced a challenging target. Shakib Al Hasan triggered the Indian collapse by removing the Indian captain for just 2 runs. Mehidy then took out Gill, Pujara, and Kohli, leaving India at 37/4. Axar Patel and Jaydev Unadkat managed to reach stumps without further loss.
