Earlier in the match, Bangladesh won the toss and elected to bat first on the Indore wicket. Their decision, however, didn’t prove to be quite fruitful as the Bangla Tigers lost wicket upfront and are struggling at the moment. Nevertheless, they will look to bounce back in the second session of the day piling up a big partnership for the fourth wicket. However, they will be challenged by the spin duo of Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja who have been phenomenal in the last Test series against South Africa.
Bangladesh have never beaten India in the longest format of the game and with this sort of start, the host's winning streak is likely to be continued.
