271 runs in arrears, Bangladesh was at risk of being forced to follow on in the first Test against India at Chattogram. The top-order failed to click once again in a format where the Asian Tigers haven’t won at home since 2020. Left-arm wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav claimed an impressive 4-33 while pacer Mohammed Siraj took 3-14 as India secured the ascendancy.
The visitors started the day on 278-6 and added 126 runs, and the misery piled up on the hosts when opener Najmul Hossain was out nicking first ball. Umesh Yadav claimed Yasir Ali and left Bangladesh reeling at 5-2, although Liton Das did smack him for three boundaries on the trot.
That’ll be Tea on Day 2 of the 1st Test.
Siraj and Umesh get a wicket each as Bangladesh are 37/2, trail #TeamIndia (404) by 367 runs.
