    17:06 (IST)15 Nov 2019

    After a late, late show of enthusiasm and balls flying out of the park, thanks to Umesh Yadav's blistering 25-run knock and Ravindra Jadeja's unbeaten 60, India have taken a massive lead of 343 runs. Surprisingly, Virat Kohli hasn't declared yet, so there might be a lot of fireworks tomorrow morning. IND end the day on 493/6 after 114 overs. 

    16:57 (IST)15 Nov 2019
    Fifty for Jadeja!

    A composed single brings Ravindra Jadeja's half-century from 72 balls, but not much can be said about composure on the other side. Umesh Yadav has completely lost himself in the heavy hitting as he has slaughtering all the deliveries, hitting three sixes and a boundary in the space of two overs. He is on 24* from just eight balls. IND are 482/6 after 113 overs.

    16:44 (IST)15 Nov 2019

    After 22 runs, two fours and a six, the partnership falls as Wriddhiman Saha is clean bowled by Ebadot Hossain. He departs for 12, but look who it is? Umesh Yadav comes on at number eight. IND are 454/6 after 111 overs.

    16:28 (IST)15 Nov 2019

    Mayank Agarwal's innings comes to an end after an epic 243-run knock from 330 balls, hitting 28 fours and eight sixes.

    16:15 (IST)15 Nov 2019

    15:52 (IST)15 Nov 2019

    Mayank Agarwal likes to reach milestones in style. He hit a six to surpass Shikhar Dhawan's record, and now with a massive six against Mehidy Hasan, he reaches his second double century in Test cricket. 25 fours, five sixes and 303 balls. Monumental innings. IND are 365/4 after 99 overs.

    15:40 (IST)15 Nov 2019

    Three singles, and India have eased past the 350-run mark. Mayank Agarwal's on 189*, while Ravindra Jadeja's on 12*. IND are 352/4after 97 overs.

    15:18 (IST)15 Nov 2019
    Record-breaking Mayank

    With that six, Mayank Agarwal becomes the highest run-scorer for any Indian opener against Bangladesh. He has now scored 177* from 280 balls, hitting 23 fours and four sixes in the innings. The previous record was held by Shikhar Dhawan who had scored 173. IND are 335/4 after 92.3 overs.

    15:07 (IST)15 Nov 2019
    Mayank, Jadeja holding strong

    After a heavy scoring over of Ebadat Hossain, hitting the bowler for two boundaries, one from the centurion and another from Ravindra Jadeja, Abu Jayed came in to save the economy with a maiden over. IND are 327/4 after 90 overs.

    14:44 (IST)15 Nov 2019
    Rahane misses century

    Ajinkya Rahane misses out on his 13th Test century as he gets out trying to play an uppercut. Abu Jayed gets his fourth wicket of the match. The miscued uppercut carries to Taijul Islam at deep point. IND are 309/4 after 85.4 overs.

    14:42 (IST)15 Nov 2019
    Third session underway

    Ebadat Hossain bowls the first over after the tea break. Hossain manages an edge off Mayank Agarwal's bat but it was too short of the slip fielder. IND are 305/3 after 85 overs.

    14:17 (IST)15 Nov 2019
    Tea break

    The second session of Day 2 of first Test went in India's favour as Mayank Agarwal and Ajinkya Rahane continued to pile on runs.

    Agarwal reaches 150!

    Mayank Agarwal gets to his second 150-plus Test score from 234 deliveries with a boundary off Taijul Islam. As Agarwal celebrates the milestone, Virat Kohli from the dressing room signals him to stay there and score to his double century. The Indian opener gives him a thumbs up. IND - 283/3 after 77 overs

    13:26 (IST)15 Nov 2019
    250 up!

    The lead is no 100 runs with seven wickets in hand. Bangladesh are desperately looking for a breakthrough. So far Mehidy Hasan and Taijul Islam have not been able to make a mark. The dropped catch of Agarwal by Imrul Kayes has turned out to be very costly for the visitors. IND - 250/3 after 71 overs

    13:03 (IST)15 Nov 2019
    100 partnership!

    Ajinkya Rahane reaches his 21st Test half-century from 105 deliveries. It has been an excellent partnership for the fourth wicket between Mayank Agarwal and Rahane. The partnership is over 100 runs now and India are dominating the bowlers, heading towards a big score. IND - 225/3 after 66 overs

    12:34 (IST)15 Nov 2019
    Mayank slams ton!

    A boundary straight down the ground towards long-off and then a double towards the deep backward square as Mayank Agarwal reaches his third Test century. It took Mayank 183 deliveries to reach this mark as he guides India to another massive first-inning score. IND: 206/3 after 60 overs (lead by 56 runs)  

    12:15 (IST)15 Nov 2019
    Action resumes!

    The pair of Mayank Agarwal and Ajinkya Rahane are back in the ground to resume the proceedings. India lost Cheteshwar Pujara in the first session but the pair would like to hold the fort and dominate the visitors in the afternoon. India are currently batting at 192/3 and have a lead of 42 runs. 

    11:34 (IST)15 Nov 2019
    Lunch break

    Despite the two wickets of Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat Kohli, India have done well in the first session of Day Two. Only Abu Jayed has been successful for Bangladesh taking three wickets so far. Mayank Agarwal is batting on 91 whereas Ajinkya Rahane is batting on 35. The partnership for the fourth wicket between Rahane and Agarwal is 69 runs. IND - 188/3 after 54 overs, lead by 38 runs

    11:08 (IST)15 Nov 2019
    Agarwal survives

    Mayank Agarwal was shell-shocked after umpire Marais Erasmus gave him out after an lbw appeal from Mehidy Hasan. Agarwal went for the review and the ball-tracking showed that it was missing the stumps. DRS saves Agarwal. Meanwhile, Ajinkya Rahane completes his 4,000 Test runs. IND - 170/3 after 47 overs

    11:04 (IST)15 Nov 2019
    50-run partnership

    Ajinkya Rahane and Mayank Agarwal have put on 50 runs for the fourth wicket. Agarwal has moved into 80s heading towards another Test century. IND - 169/4 after 46 overs

    10:41 (IST)15 Nov 2019
    Spin from both ends

    Left-arm spinner Taijul Islam and Mehidy Hasan into the attack. Hasan bowls his first over of the match. Ajinkya Rahane is scoring runs at almost run-a-ball whereas Mayank Agarwal is holding on to one end. IND - 148/3 after 39 overs

    10:15 (IST)15 Nov 2019
    Rahane starts well

    Ajinkya Rahane hits Abu Jayed for two boundaries. Rahane has been in fine form in the Test format and retained his spot in the side. India need a partnership to put Bangladesh under pressure and Rahane has done that in the recent past. IND - 129/3 after 34 overs

    10:04 (IST)15 Nov 2019
    Kohli out for rare duck

    Indian skipper Virat Kohli departs for a duck. DRS works in Bangladesh's favour as Abu Jayed traps Kohli in front of the wickets. A rare duck for the 31-year-old. Jayed gets his third wicket of the match. IND - 119/3 in 31.5 overs

    09:58 (IST)15 Nov 2019

    Mayank Agarwal reaches his half-century with a boundary towards mid-wicket. Agarwal reaches the fifty-run mark from 98 deliveries. This is Indian opener's sixth fifty-plus score in 12 innings. IND - 114/2 after 31 overs

    09:51 (IST)15 Nov 2019
    Pujara departs

    Once again, Cheteshwar Pujara fails to convert. Pujara's drought of centuries at home continues as he edges the ball to the slip fielder. Abu Jayed gets his second wicket of the match. As Pujara walks back to the dressing room, the cheers grow louder as Virat Kohli comes in to bat. IND - 105/2 after 29.5 overs

    09:42 (IST)15 Nov 2019

    Cheteshwar Pujara hits back-to-back boundaries off Abu Jayed to reach his half-century from 68 deliveries. This is very unlike Pujara. This maybe Pujara's fastest Test half-century. IND - 99/1 after 28 overs

    09:34 (IST)15 Nov 2019
    Day 2 underway

    Mayank Agarwal on strike, Ebadat Hossain starts the proceedings of Day 2. Just a single off Agarwal's bat in the first over. IND - 87/1 after 27 overs

    08:42 (IST)15 Nov 2019
