Bangladesh vs India- Previews and Betting Tips
Despite a spectacular series win in the one-dayers, Bangladesh faced a disappointing loss in the first test match. Choosing to bat first, India had their batting woes continuing with the score being 48/3. Cheteshwar Pujara’s 90, Shreyas Iyer’s 86, and a much-needed 58 by Ravi Chandran Ashwin helped India to reach 404. Taijul & Mehidy were the key bowlers who picked up four wickets each. In reply, Bangladesh succumbed to Kuldeep Yadav’s 5/40 at 150.
Although, skipper KL chose not to enforce the follow-on, and India came out to bat with a 254-run lead. Shubman Gill finally got his well-deserved century, scoring 110 off 152 balls. Cheteshwar Pujara too joined the party by scoring his fastest-ever test century, 102 runs in 130 balls. Bangladesh showed no signs of effort in the field as India declared at 258/2, putting up a massive 512-run target.
The Bangladeshi batters were not ready to give up just yet. They put up a century-opening partnership between Najmul Shanto and Zakir Hussain. The former got out for a well-made 67 while the latter scored a blistering 100 on debut and perished right after. Skipper Shakib continued the innings and fought hard with his 84. However, the spin duo of Axar Patel and Kuldeep Yadav picked up 7 wickets between them to help India bag a 188-run win.
