Cricket: IND vs BANG
Rain washed out the entire second session to leave Bangladesh stranded on 111/3 in their first innings as early tea was taken on the fourth day of the one-off Test against India at the Khan Shaheb Osman Ali Stadium in Fatullah on Saturday.
30.1 overs were bowled in the first session of the day that started thirty minutes early to make up for the lost overs. Imrul Kayes (59) and Shakib Al Hasan (0) were at the crease when play was stopped due to rain and early lunch was taken.
The fourth day’s proceedings started with India declaring their first innings at the overnight score of 462/6.
Ishant Sharma opened the bowling for India but with two more pacers in their ranks, it was Ravichandran Ashwin, who bowled the second over.
When he reached the score of 7 in the third over, Tamim Iqbal became the highest run-getter for Bangladesh going past Habibul Bashar.
But Ashwin justified Virat Kohli’s faith and had Iqbal stumped in his third over. Ashwin bowled a flighted delivery that dipped on Iqbal’s drive, the ball turned away past the edge and Wriddhiman Saha whipped the bails off in a flash. Iqbal stretched his back foot out but the replays showed that it was on the line and the third umpire ruled him out.
