Indian Skipper Virat Kohli with 59 runs and Ajinkya Rahane with 23 were at the crease when stumps were drawn yesterday. India has a lead of 68 runs. On an opening day, India bundled out Bangladesh for mere 106 runs. Ishant Sharma claimed five wickets, Umesh Yadav snapped three while Mohammed Shami bagged two.
For the first time in India, Pink ball is being used in the day-night test in place of the usual red ball to have better visibility under a bad light.
