OVER 43 | Score 125/4 | (Mushfiqur 6*, Shakib 29* )
LUNCH: Ashwin adds to Bangla's tension, while Ishant's final over ends in a maiden . With this India has bowled a total of 13 maidens in 43 overs while Bangladesh bowled 13 in 166 overs. Will the Bangla tigers pick up against the home side to reach the mammoth total set against them?

OVER 40 | Score 113/4 | (Mushfiqur 0*, Shakib 27* )
Ravichandran Ashwin brought into the attack to partner Ishant Sharma. India, meanwhile, have lost their 2nd DRS as well after the Tamil Nadu bowler decided to review an LBW decision that was not given in his favour. This was India's 4th maiden over in a row!
OVER 35 | Score 109/4 | (Mushfiqur 0*, Shakib 23* )
WICKET! Slowly, silently, Bangladesh walk into their 100 run mark, with the home side aiming at a fourth wicket before lunch. And yes, they have been successful. With the seamers creating trouble for the opening line-up of Bangladesh, skipper Virat brings in Ishant Sharma, who indeed gets his job done in his first over, trapping the ball between the legs to send back Mahmudullah for 28.
Mahmudullah lbw b Sharma 28 (57b)
OVER 30 | Score 93/3 | (Mahmudullah 17*, Shakib 19* )
Pressure seems to be piling up on the visitor's side as, the pace-spin combo used by Virat is creating quite a trouble for both the batsmen. Things are indeed looking awry, Umesh Yadav bowling at his best, yet the Bangla fans did get to see glimpses of the ball traveling to the boundary, which is still keeping their hope alive.
Way Umesh. Dil khush ho gaya...reverse-swinging with speed and acccuracy. #IndvBan

OVER 25 | Score 72/3 | (Shakib 4 *, Mahmudullah 13* )
WICKET! Mominul (12) sent back to the pavilion following the decision of a lbw and all starts looking simple for the home side. Both the pacers seem to be in their best today, as Bangladesh is slowly slipping down. In walks, Bangla's most experienced player, Shakib Al Hasan and immediately scores a boundary on a full-toss Yadav delivery.Score stands 72/3
Not quite the start Bangladesh wanted. Homework would have suggested that Umesh Yadav is quick and has an excellent throwing arm

WICKET: Bangladesh lose Tamim Iqbal(25) in the third over of the day in a foolish run-out. The score stands 44/2
OVER 15 | Score 41/1 | (Iqbal 24*, Mominul 1* )

As far as Bangladesh are concerned, they go to play 14 overs on Day 2 and as soon as their opening pairing of Tamim Iqbal and Soumya Sarkar were looking settled, an out-of-the-blue Virat Kohli review earned India their first wicket of the match.
The visitors batsmen's credibility will be put to test today as they face world's top bowling duo in the form of Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra jadeja – ICC No. and No. 2, respectively – as India look to bundle the visitors early and produce the desired result inside 4 days.
At Stumps on Day 2, Bangladesh were 41/1, trailing India (687/6d) by 646 runs.
