India vs Bangladesh, 1st Test, Day 3 live score and updates
Players make their way
A small huddle and off they go. Virat Kohli lead the Indian side out in the middle. They are well and truly in the driver's seat and will look finish off this game by bowling Bangladesh out today. Bangladesh openers Imrul Kayes and Shadman would love to prove them wrong.
'Shami will pick 4'
VVS Laxman puts the predictor's hat on and says Mohammed Shami will pick 4 wickets in the second innings. Out of all of Laxman's predictions this match (which didn't go that well), this one seems to be the most likely one. '2nd innings Shami' as Harsha Bhogle fondly refers the Indian seamers picks up more wickets in the second innings, which is not only unusual but is very rare in Indian conditions.
Ishant marking his run-up
Moments after the news of India declaring their innings broke, Ishant Sharma led the Indian seamers to the middle to mark their run-ups and warm-up. They sure will look to repeat the performance they put on in the first innings.
India have declared
News coming in from Indore is that India have declared overnight. So Jadeja and Umesh won't come out to bat and instead they will have the ball in hand when play starts on Day 3 in about 25 minutes from now. India lead by 343 runs and one would have to say it's a sensible decision. There was no point going on.
Bangladesh coach Russell Domingo praises India
"There's no doubt that in the past, India backed themselves to win at home on spinning pitches. Now I don't think that's the case. I think they are backing themselves against any team on good pitches. There's definitely a mindset shift," Domingo said after the second day's play.
Onus on Bangladesh
Bangladesh in their huddle, can they take this game to the 4th day? India, on the other hand, are looking far more relaxed, players are warming up, bowlers are going through their motions, says our correspondent Manish Pathak from Indore
Day 3 promises end?
Hello and welcome to the live coverage of Day 3 of the India vs Bangladesh 1st Test at Indore. If you thought Day 1 was dominance then Day 2 saw it go a few levels higher courtesy Mayank Agarwal's double century. India are 343 runs ahead with still 4 wickets in hand. One gets the feeling they won't bat long on the third day that means the Indian bowlers will have enough chance to take Bangladesh's 10 wickets and finish off the game today itself. But we shouldn't really jump the gun.
'I must respect the game'
"I think it goes down to understanding that there had been times when I have not got runs. So I must respect the game that I am batting well. When I am doing that I have to make sure that I make it big and put the team in driver's seat or put it in such a position that they cannot lose from there," Agarwal said after the second day's play.
Day 2 recap
Mayank Agarwal struck his second double century in four Tests as India built a giant 343 first innings lead over Bangladesh on day two of their opening Test.
The 28-year-old opener, who has hit three tons including two double hundreds in his last five Test innings, hit eight sixes and 28 fours in his 243.
Agarwal passed 200 with a six off Mehidy Hasan and went on with his big hits until he was finally caught at deep mid-wicket by Abu Jayed off Mehidy. He left to another standing ovation.
India were 493 for six at stumps in response to Bangladesh's 150 all out on Thursday. Ravindra Jadeja, on 60, and Umesh Yadav, on 25, were at the crease promising more fireworks.
