Virat Kohli, on the other hand, didn’t let the spectators feel hopeless as he scored 59* (93) before the end of day one’s play. However, India lost both their openers Rohit Sharma and Mayank Agarwal very cheaply. During the 17th over of India’s innings, Kohli played a cover drive so beautifully that even Bangladesh bowler Ebadot Hossain couldn’t stop clapping.

While batting in their second innings, Bangladesh lost their opener Shadman Islam for a 4-ball duck as Ishant Sharma trapped him before the stumps. Even, the captain Mominul Haque too fell for a 6-ball duck whereas Mohammad Mithun scored a mere 6.

Mushfiqur Rahim steadied the ship with Mahmudullah before the later retired hurt for 39. Rahim was at 59 at stumps on Day 2. Mehidy Hasan and Taijul Islam scored 15 and 11 respectively before getting dismissed.
