Mayank completes 50
Shortly after Pujara's wicket, Mayank Agarwal also completed his half-century. This is Mayank's fourth international Test fifty.
Loose drive by Pujara
HT Correspondent in Indore, Manish K Pathak: A rather loose drive by Pujara, something which is not expected of him. He tucks his bat and walk off, Bangladesh finally have a wicket. India have started positively today but the visitors have struck and this has brought Kohli out to the middle in the first half an hour
Cheteshwar Pujara edged a cover drive straight to the Bangladeshi fielder. India has lost its second wicket with Pujara going back to pavilion on the score of 54 runs. Crowd roars as Virat Kohli will be the next batsman.
Beautiful cover drive by Mayank
Mayank played a beautiful cover drive off the bowling of Abu Javed. The ball was outside off stump and Mayank hit the ball to the boundary rope.
100 up for India
India have completed their century of runs in Indore. It has taken 29.1 overs for India to reach the 100-run mark against Bangladesh.
India have started positively
HT Correspondent in Indore, Manish K Pathak: 'Pujara's game is perfectly set up for the cut, and Abu Jayed has been guilty of feeding him with short and wide deliveries. The stays leg side of the delivery and this allows him to rise with the bounce and unleash the cut - two such strokes and he has bounced off to 50. India have started positively.'
50 for Pujara
Pujara flashed hard and the ball flew over the slip fielder for a boundary. He followed it up with another cut to the boundary to complete his half-century.
The day starts
Mayank Agarwal faced the first ball of the day from Ebadot and played it cautiously. On the third ball of the over, he managed a single as India got off the mark.
Practice sessions over
Update from HT Correspondent in Indore, Manish K Pathak: 'The practice sessions are over and the players have all returned to the dressing room. Action to commence soon.'
Bangladesh made a mistake
Bangladesh captain Mominul Haque has admitted that batting first in Indore was a bad decision.
Pitch looks like a belter
Update from HT Correspondent in Indore, Manish K Pathak: 'It is a glorious day in Indore and as Virat Kohli had predicted at the toss, a day for batting. This sight will not please Bangladesh - the pitch looks a proper belter to bat on, the tinge of green has turned brown, the sun is out in its full glory and INdia already have a platform. Bangladesh need to strike early and then keep chipping away at the wickets or else, today could be the day they are shunted out of the competition.'
'We lacked mental strength'
"The wicket wasn't unplayable at all or else myself or Mushfiqur (Rahim) wouldn't have scored the runs that we scored. The problem is that when you are playing the world's No. 1 Test team, you have to be mentally far more stronger," Mominul said at the end of the day's play.
'Brave decision to bat first'
"I personally thought it was a very very brave decision to bat first having won the toss. We didn't expect that. We thought they will bowl but they batted first which is very commendable on their part. Some of the batsmen batted beautifully in the morning. It is never easy to come and play on the wicket that has got a bit of life," said Ashwin after Day 1.
