Cricket news - Live Cricket Score - India vs Bangladesh, 1st Test, Day 2, Indore

Will it be a dominant batting display from India on Day 2?

We're into the final session now. Can Bangladesh make any inroads?

TEA! India go to tea on 303/3 with a lead of 153. It's been a wicketless session for Bangladesh, whose bowlers have toiled, and toiled hard. Mayank, who was dropped on 32, (repeating it again!) dropped on 32, is now unbeaten on 156, with the skipper egging him on to getting to 200. It was brilliant from the youngster. He used his feet supremely well against the spinners who were operating from both ends as Bangladesh's four-man bowling attack struggled. India's lead is now above 150. How many will India get before they declare? Bowling India out at the moment seems like a far-fetched thought for Bangladesh. Let's find out i in the final session.

300 up for India as Rahane is closing in on a century

150 for Mayank! Second time in his short career!

Lead is now 100: Agarwal and Rahane have been untroubled, rotating the strike well with boundaries from time to time to add to Bangladesh's frustrations.

50 for Rahane! Gets there with a boundary

100-run partnership up between Rahane and Mayank. Rahane is nearing his fifty...

Third century for Mayank! What a start to his Test career he is having! Superb. Has been knocking on the doors for a while and now is making the most of the chance. Lovely stuff. Was dropped on 32; making Bangladesh pay.

200 up for India. Mayank is on 99 now.

We're back after lunch

LUNCH!! India go into Lunch on 188/3, with a lead of 38. Although Bangladesh did well in the first hour to fight back with two wickets, India take honours after having had scored over 100 runs in the session. Mayank, who was handed a life yesterday on 32, is on the brink of another century, unbeaten on 91. Rahane and him have added 69 quite fluently. India looks in the mood to pile on the runs. Unless something miraculous happens, Bangladesh are in for a couple of long sessions. Join us after the break.

50-run stand up between Mayank and Rahane

INDIA REVIEW! Mayank given leg before to Mehidy. The batsman reviews. A loud shout as Mayank goes for the sweep. There seems to be no bat. Ball-tracking shows the ball missing the stumps. Decision overturned. Mayank survives on 82.

150 up for India; they're now in the lead.

Mehidy Hasan has been brought in; he hasn't bowled so far this Test.

REVIEW AND OUT!! KOHLI GOES FOR A DUCK! Loud shout for leg-before against Kohli off Jayed. The on-field decision is not out. No bat involved. But ball-tracking shows the ball is hitting! On-field call is reversed! The Indian captain has to depart for a rare duck. Bangladesh have done well to pick up two wickets in the first half hour of the day.

50 for Mayank - his 6th fifty-plus score! After he was dropped on 32, he hasn't given Bangladesh much of a chance. Gets to his half-century with a boundary.

OUT! Bangladesh don't pay a heavy price for that drop. Pujara falls for the fuller ball. It's the same length that Bangladesh need to bowl to eke out wickets, and it's done the trick. The full delivery was bowled outside off, Pujara drives and gets an edge that flies to gully. Taken by the substitute. Hasan is off the field to get his finger checked. But that's the end of Pujara's dynamic knock. Jayed with his second.

Dropped! Early chance spilled as Mehidy Hasan is slow to stretch his arm to pouch the catch. Pujara slashes, and slashes hard. Gets a thick edge that flies to gully, and goes beyond. Hasan only gets fingertips to it as the ball races away to the boundary. Another four after that and Pujara has a Test fifty! Off just 68 balls. Both Indians have been handed lives now.

Play time in Indore n Day 2

It's going to be a great wicket to bat on today. No green anymore... sand-coloured!

Build-up:

Hello and welcome to the Live Blog for Day 2 of the first Test between India and Bangladesh in Indore. India start the day trailing Bangladesh only by 64 runs, with nine wickets in hand. They'll be hoping to get past that mark quickly and pile on the lead. After a forgettable Day 1 for the visitors, can they put up a better performance today?

Recap:

The mean and efficient Indian bowling machine was in action again, dismantling the Bangladesh line-up in a clinical fashion as the visitors were skittled out for 150, losing their last seven wickets for only 51 runs. Mohammed Shami was the chief wicket taker, bagging three, while Ishant Sharma, R Ashwin and Umesh Yadav picked up two apiece.

India lost Rohit Sharma early in the chase but an unbeaten 72-run stand between Mayank Agarwal and Cheteshwar Pujara, with the latter scoring at a strike rate of 70.49 with seven boundaries, helped the hosts end Day 1 in a commanding position. Here's the detailed report.
