For Bangladesh, the test with India is a good opportunity to go over its shortcomings. India being the top Test team, at present, with serial wins since more than five tournaments, surely must have lot to show its Bangladesh counterparts. When Imrul Kyes got dismissed in the first session in the first day of the match at Gymkhana ground, the player went over and over the footage. In the practice match against India A, he was picked up in the delivery from Hardik Pandya at the long leg. In the first match, Kayes was removed in a similar fashion on the first day of the test campaign against New Zealand. In the match played at Wellington, Trent Boult claimed his wicket. The fielder was in the same region in the outfield.
Bangladesh has reasons to worry about their batsmen as they are turning as inconsistent bets against bowlers. The shortcomings of the players are apparent in the match against India. Left arm quick bowler from India A, Aniket Choudhary was successful to put up the pressure by claiming four wickets with his extra bounce. However, there were several half centuries in the inning. Mushfiqur Rahim had a comeback from his injury with a half century. Also, Soumya Sarkar, Sabbir Rahman and Liton Das struck half centuries.
In the first day, Bangladesh declared the inning on 224 for 8 wickets before more than 60 minutes before the end. India came to bat for a short stretch reaching 91 for 1. Priyank Panchal was at 40 to become the overnight batsman. The wicket which India lost was of Abhinav Mukund. In the first inning, Bangladesh batting line up was wobbly with occasional wickets. After Kayes' wicket, Tamim Iqbal was down for 13. Mominul Haque was dismissed with an extra bounce from Choudhary. After Mushfiqur was removed, Mehedi Hasan Miraz ducked out in the first ball he faced.
