After recording a loss in the three-match One Day series by 1-2, India bounced back stronger in the purest format of the game. They excelled in all three facets of the game in the first Test match against Bangladesh to score a win at a massive 188 runs. The visitors will now be aiming for a series win by 2-0 as they will fight a battle with the Tigers in the last Test of the two-match series.

The second Test match is scheduled to be played from December 22 to December 26 at the Shere Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka. The first Test between the two sides saw Indian batters ruling the 22-yard pitch. Opting to bat first, the KL Rahul-led side posted a big score of 404 runs on the scoreboard. Cheteshwar Pujara was the top run-scorer for his team with a knock of 90 runs. Pujara found excellent support in Shreyas Iyer, who smacked 86 runs. Following the score, Bangladesh batters flattened. They could score only 150 runs as Kuldeep Yadav picked up five wickets while Mohammed Siraj returned with three wickets.

India continued the momentum in the third innings as well owing to centuries by Shubman Gill and Cheteshwar Pujara. The visitors added 258 runs to the scoreboard to take the lead to 512 runs. It was a big total and despite efforts by Bangladesh batters, they could score only 324 runs. Kuldeep Yadav again shined with the ball as he picked up three wickets. Meanwhile, Axar Patel was the top wicket-taker in the fourth innings with four wickets. 

KL Rahul & Men will be eager to continue the momentum to take the trophy home. Bangladesh, on the other hand, needs to be at their absolute best in the match starting on Thursday to stop a strong Indian team.

India’s top-order batter Cheteshwar Pujara finally displayed form with the bat after a gap of over three years. The batter looked in complete control of his game as he hammered Bangladesh batters in both innings. In India’s first inning, Pujara scored 90 runs off 203 balls. Meanwhile, it was in the second batting inning that the batter finally scored a century. His score of not 102 runs off 130 balls helped India to take a lead to 512 runs. Pujara was the top run-scorer for visitors in the first Test and we are expecting a similar performance from him in the second match as well.

Zakir Hasan was the top run-scorer for Bangladesh in the first Test. When the team was chasing 512 runs in the final inning, the opening batter smacked a hundred. His knock of 100 runs helped Bangladesh put up a good fight. The other host batters could not pick up the momentum and thus Bangladesh could score only 324 runs. However, Hasan must have gained a lot of confidence. There are high chances of him performing well in the second Test as well.

India’s Kuldeep Yadav owned the first Test against Bangladesh. He was one of the main reasons behind India winning by 188 runs. In their first batting inning, Bangladesh collapsed at a score of 150 runs as Yadav rattled them with his spin. He picked five wickets at an economy rate of 2.5. Kuldeep continued his assaults in the second inning as well by picking three wickets while conceding only 73 runs in 20 overs. After winning the man of the match award, the spinner will be eager to again deliver a match-defining performance. Moreover, the pitch at the Shere Bangla National Stadium offers special assistance to spin bowlers.
