IND vs BAN 1st Test: Pujara, Pant crucial knocks guides India to 278-6 at stumps

IND vs BAN 1st Test: Bangladesh is hosting India for a two-match Test series as a part of the ongoing edition of the World Test Championship cycle 2021-23. The first Test kick-started today at Chattogram where we witnessed a colossal action from both the teams as each camp was satisfied with their performance on Stumps Day 1.

Winning the toss at a dry and dusty pitch at Chattogram, Indian skipper KL Rahul opted to bat first on a sunny day. With decent performance in the start as well as the middle, India managed to put up. 278/6 at the end of the day’s play.

Shubhman Gill (20) and KL Rahul (22) had put India off to a decent start but the openers failed to capitalize on their performance and lost their wickets in quick succession. Ace batsman Virat Kohli (1) failed to hold the crease and was awestruck by a glorious delivery off Taijul Islam.

IND vs BAN 1st Test: Pujara-Pant’s fightback helped India to end Day 1 on a decent Score

The failure of the frontline batting attack descended the throne in hands of veteran test specialist batsman Cheteshwar Pujara and explosive wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant. Pujara (90) and Pant (46) added 64 runs for the fourth wicket to regain the lost control. Pujara further stood strong alongside Iyer (82)* to anchor a rescue and put up a vital 149-run stand for the fifth wicket.

Bangladesh bounced back in the final few overs of the last session of the day’s play. Taijul Islam got rid of Pujara in the 85th over whereas Axar Patel (14) threw away his wicket after failing to defend Mehidy Hasan’s delivery that was the last ball of the day’s play (90th over).

Bangladesh bowlers were stupendous in their efforts. Taijul Islam led the bowling attack with his cunning figures of 3/84 whereas Mehidy Hasan claimed 2 wickets for 71 runs. Khaleed Ahmed chipped in a wicket apiece for 26 runs.

Indian batsmen Shreyas Iyer (82)* and Ravichandran Ashwin will take the crease and initiate the proceedings for India on Day 2. While India will aim to near the 400-run mark, Bangladesh will encounter their counter-attack and try to restrict the visitors before 350.
