HIGHLIGHTS

  • 20:38 (IST)

    And that's that! Play has come to an end, and India have been utterly dominant today. They have taken a 68-run lead over Bangladesh and end the day's play with the score reading 174/3. Kohli is batting on 59, and Rahane is batting on 23. That's all from us today, until Day 2!

  • 20:13 (IST)

    FOUR! Even after the dismissal of Pujara, Kohli goes on to play a gorgeous cver drive that serves as a timely reminder to Indian fans not to panic. Till Kohli is at the crease, the score will keep ticking. That's the message. India are 151/3.

  • 20:02 (IST)

    And Ebadot finally gets the wicket of Pujara! The Indian batsman pokes at a ball that is roughly around fifth stump, and the ball jags around mischieveously to take the outside edge and fly to second slip. India are three down, Pujara is gone for a well made 55, and India are 137/3.

  • 19:40 (IST)

    FOUR! A majestic pull by Pujara! Abu Jayed pitches the ball short and that's all the prompt Pujara needs, as he swivels back and pulls the ball through the square-leg region. India are now 127/2.

  • 19:02 (IST)

    FOUR! Pujara gets in on the act this time around, and frees his arms to such an extent that it perfectly meets the overpitches delivery by Al-Amin Hossain. India have brought up the 100-run mark, and the score reads 101/2.

  • 18:26 (IST)

    FOUR! Captain Kohli looks like he's in sublime form, as he drives a ball through the cover region, simply leaning into the delivery, much to the dismay of Ebadot. India are looking good here despite the loss of two wickets. The score reads 72/2.

  • 18:10 (IST)

    And Rohit Sharma is dismissed in the second over of the final session. A delivery from Al-Amin jags back in sharply and hits Rohit's pad as he offers no shot. The umpire raises his finger, Rohit challenges but is overruled. India lose a review, and Rohit Sharma. He's gone for 21 off 35 deliveries, and India are now 41/2.

  • 17:09 (IST)

    OUT! Against the run of play, Bangladesh have a wicket. Al-Amin bowls one wide that Mayank tries to cut at but only finds Mehidy at gully. Rare failure for a man who's been in top form lately. 

  • 16:34 (IST)

    OUT! Shami wraps it up as Abu Jayed is the last man to go. Rohit missed a dolly and Pujara gladly took the catch. This has been fantastic from India's bowlers. Bangladesh are all out for 106. 

  • 16:30 (IST)

    OUT! Ishant gets his five-for. He's knocked over Nayeem to complete his 10th five wicket haul. Full straight and a little outswing has sent the off-stump for a walk. Bangladesh are 105/9.

  • 16:19 (IST)

    OUT! Ishant strikes again and that's his fourth. Brilliant catch at short midwicket by Cheteshwar Pujara. Mehidy Hasan is dismissed for 8 and Bangladesh are 98/8. 

  • 16:12 (IST)

    Four and Four! Nayeem finds room outside the off-stump from Shami and he's played it away a little shakily for boundaries through square on the off side. 

  • 16:02 (IST)

    Concussion Sub: Mehidy Hasan has come out to bat in place of Litton Das as a sub after he took a hit on the head in the first session. 

  • 15:58 (IST)

    OUT! Ishant Sharma's struck again, and that's his third of the innings.Straight through Ebadot Hossain's defenses and onto the off stump. He made it easier by moving away and giving Ishant a good view of the stumps. Bangladesh are 82/7. 

20:38 (IST)

And that's that! Play has come to an end, and India have been utterly dominant today. They have taken a 68-run lead over Bangladesh and end the day's play with the score reading 174/3. Kohli is batting on 59, and Rahane is batting on 23. That's all from us today, until Day 2!

20:23 (IST)

India have now extended their lead to 58 runs, and Rahane has joined Kohli in punishing the Bangladeshi bowlers at every given opportunity. Boundaries are flowing, and Bangladesh have not done well in the field either as another misfield gives Rahane three runs. At the end of 44 overs, India are 167/3.

20:13 (IST)

FOUR! Even after the dismissal of Pujara, Kohli goes on to play a gorgeous cver drive that serves as a timely reminder to Indian fans not to panic. Till Kohli is at the crease, the score will keep ticking. That's the message. India are 151/3.

20:02 (IST)

And Ebadot finally gets the wicket of Pujara! The Indian batsman pokes at a ball that is roughly around fifth stump, and the ball jags around mischieveously to take the outside edge and fly to second slip. India are three down, Pujara is gone for a well made 55, and India are 137/3.

19:56 (IST)

Here's Pujara doing Pujara things!

19:40 (IST)

FOUR! A majestic pull by Pujara! Abu Jayed pitches the ball short and that's all the prompt Pujara needs, as he swivels back and pulls the ball through the square-leg region. India are now 127/2.

19:25 (IST)

India have taken the lead here against Bangladesh and will be further looking to consolidate, with two set batsmen at the crease. Kohli is caught by surprise off an Al-Amin delivery, with the ball almost taking the outside edge of his bat. He survives, and India are 111/2.

19:11 (IST)

Taijul Islam and Al-Amin Hasan have tried to bring a degree of calmness to proceedings here as far as Bangladesh are concerned, and they have succeeded in doing so as of now. Only two runs have come off the last two overs, and India are 105/2.

19:02 (IST)

FOUR! Pujara gets in on the act this time around, and frees his arms to such an extent that it perfectly meets the overpitches delivery by Al-Amin Hossain. India have brought up the 100-run mark, and the score reads 101/2.

18:53 (IST)

India looks set at the drinks break, with them batting on 93/2. Kohli has successfully managed to get his eye in and will be looking to consolidate on the start he has got so far. Pujara too looks poised to score big, and this could be a long innings for Bangladesh.

18:42 (IST)

India are batting on 83/2, as Al-Amin Hossain completes another over to Virat Kohli. He drives through the offside off the third ball for another double, and India are now crusing along nicely.

18:26 (IST)

FOUR! Captain Kohli looks like he's in sublime form, as he drives a ball through the cover region, simply leaning into the delivery, much to the dismay of Ebadot. India are looking good here despite the loss of two wickets. The score reads 72/2.

18:17 (IST)

Quite the occasion for Cheteshwar Pujara!

18:10 (IST)

And Rohit Sharma is dismissed in the second over of the final session. A delivery from Al-Amin jags back in sharply and hits Rohit's pad as he offers no shot. The umpire raises his finger, Rohit challenges but is overruled. India lose a review, and Rohit Sharma. He's gone for 21 off 35 deliveries, and India are now 41/2.

17:40 (IST)

Dropped! Rohit pulls hard at an Abu Jayed delivery and finds the man in the deep square leg boundary who puts down an absolute sitter. The bowler isn't best pleased at the effort. 

17:33 (IST)

The game has slowed down considerably after Mayank's departure but the Indian batsmen are still not being troubled too much by the bowlers. The pink ball is beginning to move around though. 

17:20 (IST)

That's two concussion substitutes in the same game; a first. 

17:09 (IST)

OUT! Against the run of play, Bangladesh have a wicket. Al-Amin bowls one wide that Mayank tries to cut at but only finds Mehidy at gully. Rare failure for a man who's been in top form lately. 

17:04 (IST)

The Bangladesh bowlers are having no luck with the pink ball under floodllights so far. The openers are getting boundaries and are not being troubled as the bowlers aren't getting as much movement. India will overhaul Bangladesh's target by the end of day's play at this rate. 

16:49 (IST)

We are back underway at Eden Gardens for the Indian innings. Mayank Agarwal begins proceedings by smacking Al-Amin Hossain for a boundary through the point region and Rohit Sharma also gets off the mark with a pull shot that goes for six. India not wasting time here! 

16:34 (IST)

OUT! Shami wraps it up as Abu Jayed is the last man to go. Rohit missed a dolly and Pujara gladly took the catch. This has been fantastic from India's bowlers. Bangladesh are all out for 106. 

16:31 (IST)
Ishant's been on fire today!
16:30 (IST)

OUT! Ishant gets his five-for. He's knocked over Nayeem to complete his 10th five wicket haul. Full straight and a little outswing has sent the off-stump for a walk. Bangladesh are 105/9.

16:25 (IST)

Shami's completed another fantastic over and he's got his tail up no doubt about it. India need two more wickets to bundle out the visitors and Shami almost had one, but the chance fell short of Ravindra Jadeja at third man. Bangladesh are 103/8. 

16:19 (IST)

OUT! Ishant strikes again and that's his fourth. Brilliant catch at short midwicket by Cheteshwar Pujara. Mehidy Hasan is dismissed for 8 and Bangladesh are 98/8. 

16:12 (IST)

Four and Four! Nayeem finds room outside the off-stump from Shami and he's played it away a little shakily for boundaries through square on the off side. 

16:09 (IST)

Ishant steams in for another over and boy is Mehidy Hasan relieved to be facing him. Picks up two boundaries to add 8 more to the total and take Bangladesh to 90/7. 

16:05 (IST)

Shami's on fire here at the Eden and Sanjay Manjrekar reckons he is in no mood to reduce the intensity. Another maiden over with Hasan jumping around for dear life, literally. 

16:02 (IST)

Concussion Sub: Mehidy Hasan has come out to bat in place of Litton Das as a sub after he took a hit on the head in the first session. 

15:58 (IST)

OUT! Ishant Sharma's struck again, and that's his third of the innings.Straight through Ebadot Hossain's defenses and onto the off stump. He made it easier by moving away and giving Ishant a good view of the stumps. Bangladesh are 82/7.

India vs Bangladesh, 2nd Test Match at Kolkata, Day 1: As It Happened

India vs Bangladesh 2nd Test, Latest Updates: And that's that! Play has come to an end, and India have been utterly dominant today. They have taken a 68-run lead over Bangladesh and end the day's play with the score reading 174/3. Kohli is batting on 59, and Rahane is batting on 23. That's all from us today, until Day 2.

PREVIEW: The Virat Kohli-led Indian cricket team will tale on Bangladesh in their maiden Day-Night Test beginning in Kolkata on Friday (November 22). So far, 11 Day/Night Tests have been played worldwide since Australia set the ball rolling against rivals New Zealand four years ago in Adelaide. Amid all the hype of the historic first-ever pink ball Test for either side, there’s also the sub-plot of India bracing for a 12th successive home series victory. The challenge for the players would be when the dew comes in to play after the sun sets early and it remains to be seen how both the teams and the groundsmen cope with the pink ball.

The pace attack of Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma and Umesh Yadav wrapped up the Indore Test inside three days with an innings and 130 runs victory – the 10th innings win for India. The pace attack along with the blazing form of the new-found opening duo – Rohit Sharma and Mayank Agarwal – has been the story of the season in Indian cricket. The pacers took 14 wickets in Indore and none of them look like they would need the additional movement or help from the pink ball to wreak havoc at the Eden Gardens. Already at the top of the World Test Championship standings, India would look to consolidate their position after another series victory.

While a handful of Indian players have pink-ball experience, having played three domestic seasons of Duleep Trophy under lights, the Bangladeshi squad would be facing the challenge for the first time. Bangladesh have struggled in batting and only Mushfiqur Rahim posted a 50-plus score in the Indore Test. Having been handed the captaincy after Shakib Al Hasan's suspension for failure to report approaches from a suspicious individual, Mominul Haque is struggling to handle the pressure. In such a scenario, the skipper may find some inspiration from his pacers, especially Abu Jayed, who impressed in the Indore Test.
