Bangladesh's start to the two-match Test series in India began on the disastrous note after being comprehensively beaten in the opening Test at the Holkar Stadium in Indore. India outplayed the Bangla Tigers to win the match by an innings and 130 runs. After winning the toss, Bangladesh skipper Mominul Islam opted to bat first and Indian pacers did not waste the opportunity to make the most of lively conditions as they virtually took the match away from the visitors by bowling them out for 150.
Indian batsmen dominating the match, especially Mayank Agarwal, who scored a double century in the first innings. After an exceptional performance by the batsmen, Indian seamers did their job in the second innings as well with Mohammed Shami, who once again troubled the batsman, picking up 4 wickets. Overall, the Bengal pacer performed really well picking up 7 wickets in the match.

Bangladesh pacer Abu Jayed was the only silver lining for his side and was the most successful Bangladeshi bowler by picking up 4 wickets. He got India opener Rohit Sharma caught behind for six in the final session of the opening day in Indore and followed it up with wickets of Cheteshwar Pujara, India captain Virat Kohli and vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane.
The pacer recently told a leading Indian media daily that he took tips from India’s Mohammed Shami after the first Test and spoke about his preparation for the pink ball Test, scheduled to be held at the iconic Eden Gardens in Kolkata from Thursday, November 21.
Jayed added that he spoke with Shami due to the similarities between both of them in terms of their bowling styles. He added that he has seen Shami bowl a lot of times and paid extra attention to how he was bowling. He even compared Shami's height to his for finding out if he is taller than him in order to figure out if he could bowl like him.
