Rohit Sharma there dives to his right and takes a superb one-handed catch. The Bangladesh skipper departs for a duck. BAN 17/2 in 10.1 overs
13.51 IST: WOW! This one has moved a long long way. Excellent take from Saha. Saha has found the toughest so far with this pink ball. Shami goes wide of the crease and makes it jag back in.

Lucky break for Shadman Islam.
13.31 IST: OUT! REVIEW LOST! ISHANT ON FIRE! Bangladesh lose Kayes (LBW) and the review. It was a poor review from his visitors. India have their first wicket with the pink ball.

BAN 15/1 in 6.3 overs Bangladesh skipper, Mominul Haque comes out at number 3.
13.28 IST: NOT OUT! Great review from Bangladesh! There was a certain sound when the ball went past Kayes and into Saha's hands. The Indian appealed and the on-field umpire gave it in their favour. However, Kayes was confident and reviewed the decision. The replays showed a clear gap between the bat and ball and the umpire had to change his decision to not out.
13.22 IST: Good over from Ishant, just a single off it. BAN 14/0 in 5 overs
13.17 IST: FOUR! Another boundary from Shadman Islam. A short delivery from Umesh and Islam camps on his back foot and pulls it over the mid-wicket fielder for the second boundary of the over. BAN 13/0 in 4 overs
