Rohit Sharma fallen early in the innings against Abu Jayed delivery but India continued to dominate the opening day with Mayank Agarwal and Cheteshwar Pujara on the crease scoring 37 and 43 respectively.

In the first innings, the Indian pacers made Bangladesh toil hard after the tourists decided to bat first on a green topped wicket soaked with moisture.

Mohammed Shami’s double strikes just before the Tea break reduced the visiting side to 140 for 7 including the wicket of Bangladesh’s highest scorer Mushfiqur Rahim. Rahim worked hard to reach 43 in 105 balls.
