100 up for Bangladesh. Four overs remaining in the day's play.

Can India take fourth Bangladesh wicket?


Jadeja to Shakib. LBW shout! And, it's OUT.

Shakib has been given marching orders. But, he has asked for a review. 

Decision: OUT

After review: NOT OUT


WICKET! R Ashwin removes Mominul Haque for 27 runs.

Bangladesh 75/3, need 384 runs to win


WICKET! Jadeja strikes, Soumya Sarkar departs for 42.

Bangladesh 71/2, need 388 runs to win


A sound defense is helping Mominul as he looks keen to not give his wicket away to Umesh. Umesh bowling a brilliant line and length. Bangladesh' score reads 69/1, require another 390 runs to win with nine wickets in hand


Another good shot from Soumya. Uses the pace off Jadeja's delivery to guide him past the lone slip to pick up four runs. Soumya moves into the 40s. Bangladesh's score reads 65/1


Soumya welcomes Jadeja to the bowling crease with a boundary. Pitched up, Soumya gets down the track and punches him straight past the mid-on fielder. Bangladesh's score reads 61/1


Ravindra Jadeja gets into the attack. Kohli is looking for wickets. He is keeping no stones unturned to get a breakthrough. Bangladesh's score reads 57/1


That is a waste of a review from India. Ashwin bowls the carrom ball and Soumya goes for an expansive drive and misses the ball. India go up and the umpire says NO. Kohli goes for DRS and the on-field umpire's decision stays. Bangladesh's score reads 55/1


Both Mominul and Soumya have looked composed at the crease. A solid start by both the batsmen and they will look to carry it forward from here and build a solid foundation for the visitors. Bangladesh's score reads 55/1, requiring another 404 to win


Umesh Yadav brought into the attack in place of Ishant. He will start from round the wicket. Umesh was the best bowler on display for India in the first innings.


Ashwin varying his flight well, but the Bangladesh batsmen are up to the challenge. They are looking to play for a draw and there is no attacking intent from the visitors.


Ishant induces the edge and the ball races to the third-man boundary off Soumya's bat. 50 up for Bangladesh for the loss of Tamim Iqbal's wicket. Bangladesh's score reads 52/1


Beautiful drive from Soumya. A typical left-hander's shot through the covers. Ishant pitched that one up and Soumya needed no second invitation. Bangladesh's score reads 48/1 


The crowd at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium loving the dominant display by the Indian players. 


Ashwin has his tail up and is bowling a good line, but the Bangladesh batsmen are up to the challenge. Both Mominul and Soumya have looked steady against the spin spearhead. Bangladesh's score reads 44/1, still needing 415 to win


Mominul and Soumya looking to steady the ship after losing experienced Tamim to Ashwin. Bangladesh's score reads 43/1 chasing 459 for a win


Ouch! Bhuvneshwar bouncer hits Soumya Sarkar on the helmet. The Bangladesh batsman gets down on the ground.

Seems fine. Indian players rush to see the batsman.



R Ashwin dismisses Tamim Iqbal for 3.

Bangladesh 11/1, need 448 runs to win 


Another bouncer! Bhuvneshwar is keeping a check on Soumya Sarkar. Amazing delivery from the medium pacer.

Bangladesh 9/0


India have declared. Pujara unbeaten on 54, Jadeja on 16 as Kohli declares the innings. Time for some Tea on Day at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Uppal. Bangladesh will be chasing 459 to win the one-off Test. 


Pujara late cuts Shakib for a boundary to third-man. Reaches another 50 in Test cricket. Brilliant show by India's no.3. India's score reads 157/4, lead by 456


150 up for India as the overall lead goes to 449. Six wickets still in hand for the hosts as Shakib bowls what looks like the last over before tea.


Now Pujara looks to attack. Steps down to Mehedi and goes through mid-wicket for a boundary. India's score reads 144/4


Jadeja starts off in style. A huge six after a boundary. Jadeja is happy to take the attack to Shakib. India's score reads 139/4, lead by 438 runs


Rahane goes trying to up the ante. Goes for a 35-ball 28. Bowled as he tried to hit Shakib out of the park. India's score reads 128/4

Day 3, Round-up: A strong resistance by the Bangladeshi middle-order ensured the tourists kept the Indian bowlers at bay at close of play on Day 3 of the only Test match being played at Hyderabad. Bangladesh ended the day at 322/6 with captain Mushfiqur Rahim unbeaten on 81*, in response to the host's mammoth first innings total of 687/6 declared.

Resuming at the overnight score of 41/1, Bangladesh were off to the worst possible start as a terrible mix-up led to Tamim Iqbal being run out for 24. Umesh Yadav's pinpoint throw at the non-striker's end was collected cleanly by Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who took the bails off before Tamim could complete a double, after a mid-pitch mix-up with Mominul Haque.

Mahmudullah was the next man in and he along with Mominul tried to put a partnership together but the latter was trapped in front of the wicket by a very impressive Umesh Yadav for 12, as the tourists were reduced to 64/3.

That brought Bangladesh's most experienced and most talented batsman to the middle. Shakib Al Hasan showed just why he is considered as one of the finest all-rounders of the current generation as he took the attack back to the Indian bowlers by hitting some crisp boundaries.
