Mayank mayhem dominated the second day of the 1st India vs Bangladesh as the hosts have mustered 493/7 at stumps. Umesh Yadav (25) and Ravindra Jadeja (60) are the two batsmen on the crease and will look to extend this mammoth lead even further. Mayank, who scored his second Test double-ton in the clash, broke a  flurry of records during the course of his sensational knock. Playing his ninth Test, the 28-year old became the second-fastest to reach two double centuries. In fact, he did a Virender Sehwag by going to the landmark with a gigantic six. The Karnataka-born batsman finally fell prey to Mehidy Hasan at 243. The run-feast, however, didn’t stop after his departure as Umesh Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja displayed some brilliant hitting at the end and added some valuable runs for the side.  India Vs Bangladesh, Live Cricket Score 1st Test Match.

Agarwal was very well supported by  Ajinkya Rahane and Cheteshwar Puajra, who also slammed half-centuries. For Bangladesh, pacer Abu Jayed was the only shining light as he claimed all the four wickets felt in the innings. The day started with Agarwal and Pujara coming to bat at India’s over-night score of 86/1. The duo guided India past Bangladesh’s first innings total of 150 runs.
