17:04 (IST)

That is stumps and India end the day at 86-1. A fine position to be in after they dismissed Bangladesh for 150 within two sessions of the first day itself. Rohit departed early but Pujara and Agarwal have scored freely and India are well and truly on top. 

16:46 (IST)

India are chugging along at a nice pace here. Losing Rohit might have been a problem but both Pujara and Agarwal have scored freely and put the pressure right back on the visiting team. 

16:32 (IST)

A boundary from Mayank Agarwal brings up the 50-run partnership between him and Pujara. The two have been scoring runs with some ease and will look to continue doing this until stumps today. 

16:28 (IST)

Pujara against spinners - especially at home - is guaranteed runs. 

16:21 (IST)

FOUR, FOUR! Pujara is on a roll here. First drives down the ground and beats Mushfiqur at mid-on before flicking one off his pads and dispatching the ball to the deep mid-wicket boundary. He's not holding back today. 

16:17 (IST)

Pujara has taken a liking to Taijul Islam as he manages to get 3 boundaries off the spinner's latest over. He has currently scored 26 from 36 balls; to say he's going at a brisk rate would be quite the understatement. 

16:10 (IST)

India would like that very much. 

15:57 (IST)

Pujara is normally something of a slow starter but he takes on Taijul Islam early, charging down the ground before driving him through the covers. Wonderful shot that. India will hope for more of that before the day ends. 

15:41 (IST)

OUT! Bangladesh have their first wicket and it is Rohit who has to go. He edges one off Abu Jayed and Liton Das takes a simple catch behind the stumps. Soft dismissal for the opener. 

15:32 (IST)

India will be hoping he does well in the first innings again. 

15:17 (IST)

Abu Jayed shares the new ball with Ebadot and while his first over is quiet, his lines and lengths barely challenge the Indian batsmen. Worth noting that it's been 3 overs and Rohit is yet to face a ball; he'll be looking to get off the mark soon enough. 

15:08 (IST)

The Indian openers Mayank Agarwal & Rohit Sharma are out in the middle. Ebadot Hossain opens the bowling and starts off by conceding a four, with Agarwal getting the boundary. Rest of the over goes by quietly but India are off to a good start. 

14:54 (IST)

OUT! Umesh Yadav rattles Ebadot Hossain's stumps and that's the end of Bangladesh's innings. 150 all out is not the start Bangladesh envisioned when they won the toss and chose to bat but India's bowling attack dominated in all quarters. 

14:45 (IST)

OUT: Another one bites the dust. It's a run-out this time round. Taijul Islam is out for 1 as Bangladesh are 148/9. 

14:42 (IST)

India would look to wrap things early

14:31 (IST)

OUT: Another one bites the dust. This time the bowler is Ishant Sharma and Liton Das departs for 21. Virat Kohli takes a good catch diving forward. Bangladesh are 140/8.

14:10 (IST)

OUT: And back-to-back wickets for Shami here. And this time he gets Mehedy Hassan on the first ball. Bangladesh are now 140/7. 

14:08 (IST)

OUT: Shami has a second wicket here. The ball comes back in sharply to Rahim and crashes into the top of off stump. Bangladesh lose sixth wicket. It's 140/6 now. 

14:05 (IST)

This is perhaps the last over before tea and there is reverse swing on offer at the moment. India would look to go into the session with another wicket here. Bangladesh are 140/5 at the moment. 

13:56 (IST)

Shami comes into the attack once again just before the end of the second session. Meanwhile Liton Das plays an excellent shot to get a four through long off. Bangladesh are 138/5. 

13:48 (IST)

India on top here

13:34 (IST)

WICKET: Second wicket for R Ashwin. This time he castles Mahmudullah. The latter sweeps and misses the ball completely. This is excellent bowling by Ashwin. India are on top as Bangladesh are now 115/5. 

13:34 (IST)

WICKET: Second wicket for R Ashwin. This time he castles Mahmudullah. The latter sweeps and misses the ball completely. This is excellent bowling by Ashwin. India are on top as Bangladesh are now 115/5. 

13:28 (IST)

MISS: It's not been a great day for Rahane as he drops yet another catch from Ashwin. Mahmudullah survives, but that was an excellent delivery by the bowler. Bangladesh are now 110/4. 

13:14 (IST)

Umesh comes back into the attack and his focus will be to get another wicket. India are in the driver's seat at the moment. The score has now moved to 102/4. 

13:08 (IST)

Big milestone for Ashwin

12:58 (IST)

OUT: Finally Ashwin has a wicket here. He has castled Mominul as he leaves an incoming delivery. Mominul departs for 37 as Bangladesh are now 99/4. 

12:51 (IST)

Ashwin has been very accurate. A wicket here will change everything for him. He is more of a momentum bowler and he is just one wicket away from getting that. Bangladesh are now 98/3. 

12:42 (IST)

FIFTY PARTNERSHIP: Mushfiqur Rahim and Mominul Haque bring up fifty partnership here as the former hits Ashwin for a big six down the ground. This is good batting by this pair as the score now moves to 88/3. 

12:33 (IST)

Ashwin has been bowling well without much success. The catching has been rather ordinary from the Indians today. Ashwin would be hoping to turn things around quickly here. Bangladesh are 73/3. 

India vs Bangladesh, 1st Test Match at Indore, Day 1 Highlights: As It Happened

PREVIEW: The Indian Test juggernaut will look to extend their supremacy in the ICC World Test Championship when they take on Bangladesh in the first of two Tests in Indore on Thursday (November 14).

India are sitting atop the championship table with 240 points, while Bangladesh are yet to play a game. The visitors will begin that pursuit with one of the toughest challenges in cricket, given India are nearly unbeatable at home in this format. India are coming off a 3-0 whitewash of South Africa, their 11th consecutive Test series win at home.

The last time India lost a series at home was in 2012, against England. Since then, they have lost only one match, to Australia in Pune 2017. Bangladesh are coming off a defeat in their previous game, to Afghanistan who are ranked lower than them. Bangladesh are also missing a couple of key players in Shakib Al Hasan and Tamim Iqbal.

Yet, India are not taking anything for granted. They have a full strength squad, barring the injured Jasprit Bumrah. Virat Kohli is back to lead the side after a brief break in the T20Is. His deputy Ajinkya Rahane and other Test specialist Cheteshwar Pujara come in too, making the batting a strong unit.

The series will be another opportunity for India to test their new opening combination of Rohit Sharma and Mayank Agarwal. Rohit, who opened for the first time in the series against South Africa, scored three centuries including a double-ton to be named Man of the Series. Agarwal too made two tons, including a double-century.

Wriddhiman Saha is likely to continue over Rishabh Pant as wicket-keeper, while the ever-improving Ravindra Jadeja adds strength to lower order batting.

Interestingly, the pitch at the Holkar International Stadium has a generous spreading of grass on it. Kohli said India could play three pacers in the game, which means Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma and Umesh Yadav will have a go. That could mean India will have to make the tough decision of leaving a spinner out. Will it be R Ashwin or Jadeja?

For Bangladesh, the two Test matches will provide an opportunity to test the young players. They stretched India in the T20I series, which they lost 1-2. They have a new skipper in Mominul Haque, who was their standout batsman last year, with 673 runs from 15 innings, including four hundreds.

A huge amount of responsibility would lie on the shoulders of Mushfiqur Rahim and Mahmudullah too. Rahim made a century the last, and only, time Bangladesh played a Test in India (2017).

Mustafizur Rahman will lead the pace attack, while Taijul Islam and Mehedy Hasan will handle spin duties.

Bangladesh will look to take inspiration from their previous Test in India, when they batted out more than 100 overs in each innings and stretched the game till the fifth day, although resulting in a loss. If they can do that, or more, it will set the series up nicely for the second Test in Kolkata which is the central focus of the series. For that will be the first day-night Test for both teams.


India: Virat Kohli (Capt), Rohit Sharma, Mayank Agarwal, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, Hanuma Vihari, Wriddhiman Saha (wk), R Jadeja, R Ashwin, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Umesh Yadav, Ishant Sharma, Shubman Gill, Rishabh Pant.
