Kolkata : India ended day one of the ongoing day-night Test against Bangladesh at the score of 174/3 here at the Eden Gardens.
India currently has a lead of 68 runs over the visitors.
After bundling out Bangladesh for 106, India got off to a steady start as openers Rohit Sharma and Mayank Agarwal put on 25 runs inside five overs, but their vigil at the crease was ended by Al-Amin Hossain as he dismissed Agarwal (14).
Rohit got a reprieve in the 12th over as he was dropped by Al-Amin at fine-leg. The right-handed Rohit and Chesteshwar Pujara ensured India does not lose any more wickets before the tea break and the side went into the interval at a score of 35/1.
As soon as the play started after the tea break, Rohit (21) was adjudged leg-before wicket on the delivery bowled by Ebadat Hossain, reducing India to 43/2 in the 13th over.
Skipper Virat Kohli then joined Pujara in the middle and the duo kept Bangladesh bowlers at bay as they kept on moving the scoreboard at a rapid pace. In the ongoing match, Kohli also went past the 5000-run mark as the skipper of the side.
