While Rohit’s poor outing with the bat was one little blip in an otherwise perfect opening day for the hosts, Bangladesh were left with lots to ponder about, after getting bowled out for just  150 runs on board. Mushfiqur Rahim (43) and Mominul Haque (37) added 60% of those runs with the duo stitching the visitors’ only half-century run stand. Mushfiqur also was Bangladesh’s highest run-scorer in the first innings. IND vs BAN, 1st Test 2019: Virat Kohli and Co Outplay the Bangla Tigers, India in Driver’s Seat at Stumps on Day 1.
