India vs Bangladesh, first test, Day 1: India shakes the higher order of Bangladesh

INDORE: the men of India Umesh Yadav & Ishant Sharma He hit early to remove the openers when Bangladesh reached 63 for three at lunch on the first day of the first Test on Thursday.


Both Yadav & Sharma bowled at a lively pace on a green Indore wicket after India were made to field first at the start of the two-match series.

Skipper Mominul Haque, on 22, & Mushfiqur Rahim, on 14, were batting at the break.

Bangladesh got its first race after three inaugural rounds with a single by Imrul Kayes, but soon the left-hander perished by six of Yadav.

Sharma hit the next one to send Shadman Islam walking back to the pavilion, also by six, as tourists fell to 12 by two.

Batting remained tough for Mominul & Mohammed Mithun who tried to steady the innings until Mithun was trapped lbw for 13 by paceman Mohammed Shami who was extracting both swing & seam movement.

It could have been worse for Bangladesh if India had not been neglected in the countryside.

Ajinkya Rahane dropped Mominul at slip when he had made only three & Mushfiqur survived when skipper virat Kohli spilled a capture in the third slip.

Bangladesh, which lost the previous Twenty20 series 2-1, had a problematic accumulation when Shakib Al Hasan was banned for two years, with one year suspended for not reporting approaches by bookmakers.

The series is the first in Bangladesh in the new world test championship, currently led by India.
