India face Bangladesh in the first of the two Tests at Indore.

12:38 PM IST

Shami much better

Shami has been much better post lunch, he is still getting the ball to deck around after pitching and Mushfiqur is struggling, but is hanging in there.

12:31 PM IST

Another drop catch

DROPPED! Rahane puts down an easy chance! Mushfiqur gets another life in this innings! This though is beautifully bowled by Ashwin! Flighted ball outside off, Mushfiqur looks to defend it off the back foot but it goes off the outside edge at an awkward height to Rahane at first slip. Ajinkya is slow in getting his hands to it and it lobs off his chest and into the ground. Another big miss from India. Second drop for Rahane in this innings.

12:21 PM IST

Day 1, session 2

Play resumes after Lunch, Mohammed Shami starts off for India. Only 1 run from the over.

Lunch Report by Manish Pathak: Expressive Kohli gets tactics right, fielder Kohli drops a catch, captain Kohli right in the middle

At the toss, Indian captain Virat Kohli had no qualms in bowling first as he expected his seamers to get the job done on a slightly greenish surface. He had gushed over his bowling attack and labelled the fast bowlers are the world’s best. Hence, when Ishant bowled a disciplined first over and when, Umesh was getting the ball to seam and swing around no one was surprised.

Stationed in the slip cordon, Kohli was animated, he was waving his arms around and gesturing to the fielders to pay attention. He was not averse to making few minor tweaks to his fields, he was not shy in running across and speaking with his bowlers. The hand motions continued even when the bowlers were in their stride.

He walked with Ishant right down to fine leg and was involved in a long-drawn-out conversation. When Ashwin was introduced into the attack, he was in constant conversation with him. Hurtling up and down, he was trying to make things happen even on a pitch which was proving to be his fast bowlers’ best mate.

He was on point with his bowling changes as well – Shami’s end was swapped after an unimpressive first couple of overs and he struck immediately. After giving Umesh and Ishant a brief break, they were both introduced as the session drew to a close and both the bowlers looked sharp yet again.

Ishant got the ball to move in considerably and posed constant questions to Mushfiqur Rahim who had visible discomfort against the sharp in-dipper. Umesh was getting the ball to seam away, he even grabbed the outside edge of Mushfiqur, but well, the catch was grassed by Kohli. His bowling changes were on point, and only if he had taken hold of the catch, it would have all come together.

It was a session which belonged to the Indian bowlers and like it has always been, Virat Kohli was the centre of all things revolving around him.

11:38 AM IST

Lunch, Day 1

A nice delivery from Umesh. Mominul gets on top of the bounce and pushes it to the off-side. That will be lunch on Day 1. It's session that has belonged to India. Ishant, Shami and Umesh have picked up a wicket apiece but Umesh was the most impressive, with a little more luck he could have had a couple more to his name.

Bangladesh have reached 63/3 at lunch, Mushfiqur (14) and Mominul (22) at the crease.

11:27 AM IST

Kohli drops Mushfiqur

DROPPED! It's the skipper at third slip. Umesh Yadav has no option but to walk back to his mark without showing much dissent. A brilliant delivery from Umesh, it bounced off length, Mushfiqur left his bat hanging only to guide it to Kohli, who go surprised with the height at which the ball came in and dropped it. Mushfiqur dropped on 3 by Kohli

11:18 AM IST

Umesh back into the attack

Umesh is back and immediately is creating chances. This pitch has assistance for the seamers and he is extracting every last bit of it. To his credit, Mominul is playing with an extremely loose bottom hand and hence, the ball is not carrying to the slip cordon. 2 boundaries in that over but Umesh definitely won the battle. He continues to be impressive

11:03 AM IST

Shami gets Mithun

OUT! LBW! That is plumb and Mithun has to make the long walk back to the pavilion. Bangladesh slip further. Shami bowls a full delivery on middle swinging into the batsman, Mithun looks to flick it but fails to read the line. Bangladesh: 32/3

Mushfiqur Rahim, right-handed batsman comes to the crease

11:02 AM IST

Shami bowls a maiden

Change of ends for Shami and he has bowled a much better over. Trying to pitch the ball further up and using the conditions on offer. The sample size is extremely small, but Mominul has looked the most assured batsman for Bangladesh

10:40 AM IST

First hour goes to India

Drinks have been taken and this has been India's session. Nothing new here, nothing out of the ordinary. Indian seamers breathed fire, Umesh and Ishant started off like men possessed, Shami has been off the boil in his initial few overs, again which is not new, he takes time to hit his stride. Bangladesh have their task cut out, and leading their resistance is Mominul, their young skipper. A riveting session gone by, a riveting session beckons. (Manish's analyses the first hour of play from Indore)

10:26 AM IST

First 10 overs

It has been India all the way. Ishant Sharma and Umesh Yadav have given a hard time time to the Bangladesh top-order. They have removed both the openers and reduced Bangladesh to 13/2 after 10 overs.

10:08 AM IST

Ishant joins the party

OUT! Beautiful from Ishant, lose from Shadman and India have their second wicket. A floating delivery outside the off stump from Ishant, which wobbles away just enough, Shadman goes for the drive without any feet movement and pays the price. The ball takes the outside edge and rests in Saha's gloves. Bangladesh 12/2.

Mohammad Mithun, right-handed batsman, comes to crease.

10:01 AM IST

Umesh Yadav strikes

Edged and taken! This was on the cards. Umesh beat both the left-handers on numerous occasions and this time he finally finds the outside edge of Imrul Kayes' bat and Ajinkya Rahane holds on to a good catch in the slips. Imrul Kayes departs for 2. Bangladesh: 12/1 after 6 overs.

Bangladesh captain Mominul Haque, left-handed batsman, comes to the crease.

10:01 AM IST

Bangladesh hanging in

There have been a number of plays and misses but Both the Bangladeshi openers are hanging in there. They need to get through this tough phase.

09:53 AM IST

First boundary

FOUR! A bit streaky but Bangladesh will take it anyday. A fuller length delivery from Ishant, Shadman didn't have a big stride and as a result, gets a thickish outside edge which goes through the vacant thirdman area for the first boundary of the Test match.
