Bangladesh skipper Mominul Haque won the toss and decided to bat first. However, the visitors failed to put up a resistance and their innings never really took off as the Indian bowlers picked up wickets at regular intervals. Mushfiqur Rahim (43) and Mominul Haque (37) were the only Bangladeshi batsmen who managed to hang around for a while but could not convert their starts into big scores as they were bundled out for a paltry score of 150 in the 59th over. For India, Mohammed Shami was the pick of the bowlers with figures of 3/27 at an economy rate of 2.08 including five maidens whereas, Ishant Sharma, Umesh Yadav, and Ravichandran Ashwin picked up two wickets each. India in their first innings lost the important wicket of Rohit Sharma for six. Nonetheless, Mayank Agarwal and Cheteshwar Pujara have so far added 72 runs for the second wicket stand. Agarwal remained unbeaten on 37 while Pujara was not out on 43.
