India posted 404/10 in first innings. India started the day with a score of 278/6 from the previous night, but lost Shreyas Iyer in the first session. India came very close to 400 runs thanks to a 92-run partnership between Kuldeep Yadav and R Ashwin for the eighth wicket. After Ashwin was dismissed for 58, Taijul Islam quickly bowled Kuldeep Yadav out for 40. India reached 278/6 at stumps after Cheteshwar Pujara and Iyer helped them recover from a difficult Day 1 situation. India was once down to 48/3, but Pujara remained steadfast at one end before being outclassed by Taijul Islam on 90. Iyer scored 82 to finish the day unbeaten.

Bangladesh have to strike hard to capture the trail of over 400 runs and with the confidence of winning the ODI series, the Bengal Tigers might come out to bat in a determined way but with the tough bowling unit of India and Bangladesh’s struggle of finding the right position for the batting unit, India’s chances of winning look higher at the moment.
