Umesh Yadav and Mohammed Shami took three and two wickets respectively. The new pink ball was expected to assist the pacers and the inevitable happened.

Wriddiman Saha also completed his 100 dismissals in the longest format of the game while Cheteshwar Pujara also completed 50 catches in Test cricket. Bangladesh Top Order Rattled By Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Shami and Umesh Yadav on Pink Ball Test Debut.

Mayank Agarwal and Rohit Sharma will start the proceedings for India and will aim to give the home side a good start. They also must vary of the new pink cherry and will have to display solid temperament. The duo of Edadot Hossain and Abu Jayed will have the onus to go run through the Indian batting line-up and bring their side back into the match. Virat Kohli and Co are already leading the two-match series 1-0 which means a win at Kolkata will seal the deal for them while the visitors will look to get the opposite result.
