India's first ever Day/Night Test at Eden Gardens, Kolkata saw an interesting day, with the hosts taking command at stumps. The Indian seamers bowled out the opposition for 106 in the first innings, after which Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara scored fifties each as India reached 174/3 at stumps, with a lead of 68 runs.
End of day's play
Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane finish strong as India reach 174/3 at stumps on Day 1, with a lead of 68 runs. 11 overs lost in the day due to slow over rate from both the teams.
FIFTY! Virat Kohli slices one towards mid-on for a boundary. He brings up his fifty in style. IND 144/3
GONE! Pujara surprised by the bounce from Ebadot, tries to defend it, gets a leading edge and the ball goes to Shadman at first slip. IND 137/3
By the way
The former India cricketers of India and Bangladesh and the likes of Mary Kom and Sania Mirza will be felicitated after close of play today
FIFTY! Cheteshwar Pujara brings up his half century. India in totla control at the moment. IND 128/2, in total command at the moment.
Problems batting under-lights?
Lot of talk about difficulties in batting during twilight and under lights against the pink ball but Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara have shown that with application and patience one can master the art of batting under all circumstances. Yes, the odd ball has moved a bit more but that hasn't affected the mindset of Pujara or Kohli. As far as the ball sighting under light goes, I think the prominent black seam of the SG pink ball is making it easy for the batsmen.
India take lead
There it is, India have officially taken a lead now in the match. There are still plenty of overs remaining in the day, and the hosts would be hoping to extend lead up to 100 by the end of day's play.
Kohli cross 5000 run mark
Virat Kohli has crossed the 5000-run mark in the Tests as captain in the Tests. India 104/3. He becomes the fastest to cross 5000-runs as Test captain.
India cross 100
India have crossed the 100-run mark. The trail is now 5 runs. Meanwhile, Pujara has spotted something Taijul is doing, he walks across to Virat Kohli in the middle of the over to have a chat. The next delivery? A forward defense from Virat Kohli with a big stride. We will never know what Pujara told Kohli but whatever he said, the captain agreed.
Mexican wave in Kolkata
The Mexican wave has begun in Eden Gardens
The is an Eden Gardens special. A Test match is not considered complete without a a few Mexican waves. It came late today but came at last
This is a good partnership building between Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara. Both the batsmen will be looking to bat the rest of the day. Still 35 overs to go in the day.
Bad day on the field
It has been a bad day on the field for Bangladesh. Kohli slices one between two fielders, who both were not quick enough to keep a hold of it. The ball races to the boundary ropes.
GONE! Rohit Sharma decided to let go off a delivery going outside off stump. It hit him on the leg. Huge appeal, and umpire gives it out. Sharma reviewed, it went to umpire's call. IND 43/2
Back after Tea
Pujara and Rohit are back in the middle after the Tea. India are 35/1. Still trailing by 71 runs.
During the break
Sachin Tendulkar on the Pink-ball experiment: Have to move with the times, when it comes to adaptability, need to explore things and see if it works or not. If it works well, good. If it doesn't - like dew playing spoilsport or sighting the ball is an issue - you get together and find a feasible solution.
Rahul Dravid on his Kolkata memories: Incredible venue, haven't come here for a long time. To come here and see this kind of crowd brings back incredible memories. If you get this kind of numbers, then [pink-ball cricket] is certainly the future. Great to see them come back. Great city, great venue.
