Virat and company are on the driving seat against struggling Bangladesh in the day - 1 of one - off test.
Captain Virat Kohli ( 111 runs ) and opener Murli Vijay ( 108 runs ) scored an electrifying century. Saurastra batsman Cheteshwar Pujara also hit half century ( 83 runs ). Earlier, opener Lokesh Rahul got dismissed in the very first over of the match by Bangladesh seamer Taskin Ahmed.
At the stumps of Day - 1, India were 356/3 in 90 overs, captain Virat Kohli and middle order batsman Ajinkya Rahane ( 45 runs ) were on the pitch.
It was a very hectic day for Bangladeshi bowler.
Bangladesh delayed long for their first test on India shores but they had appeared with an acceptance that they had the tools to dispute, if not over shadow their hosts, at the row game spin. But' lo ! This pitch wasn't proposing any. Absolutely not on the first day, they had fielded three spinners, carrying back Taijul Islam the combine, but their best occasion came from the pace bowler with the new ball.
