India vs Bangladesh 2nd Test Day 2 Highlights: Rishabh Pant and Shreyas Iyer's 159-run partnership that came in just 182 balls helped India recover from the loss of early wickets on Day 2. They lost Shubman Gill, KL Rahul and Cheteshwar Pujar in the first session and then Virat Kohli early in the second. However, Iyer and Pant began with a counter-attack and then largely maintained the run rate to take India past Bangladesh's total. Pant finally fell on 93 off 104 balls, making it the sixth time in his career that he has fallen in the 90s. Iyer also missed out on his century, falling for 87 off 105 balls. India were eventually all out for 314 runs, thus taking a lead of 87 runs. Bangladesh knocked seven runs off that and were 7/0 at stumps, trailing the visitors by 80 runs.

    IND vs BAN 2nd Test Day 2 live score: STUMPS! Bangladesh 7/0, trail India by 80 runs

    Rahul has a brief chat with the umpire but he has whipped the bails off so it is stumps. A few grumpy faces among the Indians while Shanto and Zakir are smiling from ear to ear. Zakri also took his time to tie his shoe laces at the non-striker's end before the second last ball could be bowled. Anyhow, despite that fantastic partnership between Rishabh pant and Shreyas Iyer, neither side have really pulled too far ahead of the other today. India arguably have their noses slightly ahead considerint Bangladesh still need to score 80 runs before they can truly start setting a target for them.

    India vs Bangladesh 2nd Test Day 2 Live: Bangladesh 6/0 after 5 overs

    Rahul, Kohli and Pant standing right around the batter and exchanging some words about that bat thing. Wonder if this is going to be the last over of the day. 

  • Dec 23, 2022 04:24 PM IST

    India vs Bangladesh 2nd Test Live Score: Shanto calls for new bats

    KL Rahul not happy at all. It looks like Shanto has ended up taking the old bat itself after getting the 12th man to come in with a bunch of bats. It seems the Indian captain had some choice words to tell Shanto after the 12th man ran off and he walked back. Time wasting 101 right there.

    2nd Test live score: Bangladesh 4-0 after 3 overs

    All about survival for Bangladesh as India  alternate with Ashwin and Umesh. The runs have come from a rather lucky four for Zakir which was an outside edge off Umesh that flew through the vacant second slip area.

    IND vs BAN 2nd Test Day 2 live score: India 314 all out 

    India end up with a lead of 87 runs. Siraj had hit a four off the previous ball, then he leaps down the track to give it an almighty thwack. Misses it completely and is stumped and Siraj screams in frustration, he is holding that bat to his face like he just missed out on a triple century. 

  • Dec 23, 2022 03:52 PM IST

    India vs Bangladesh 2nd Test Day 2 Live: India 309/9, lead by 82 runs

    Siraj has been utterly solid so far against the spinners. Coming forward and defending with his bat and pad and everything forward, almost a top order batter. This last wicket stand has gone on for two overs now, not something Bangladesh will be too happy about. 

  • Dec 23, 2022 03:45 PM IST

    India vs Bangladesh 2nd Test Live Score: OUT! India down to their last wicket

    Four wickets for Taijul Islam, he had rattled India with those three wickets in the first session remember? It seems a long time ago for Bangladesh as India have built a strong lead since then. Umesh Yadav slashes at a wide one and edges it to slip. India 305/9 in 83.3 overs.

    2nd Test Day 2 live score: OUT! This time umpire's call goes against Ashwin

    Shout for LBW and the umpire gives out, Ashwin reviews. First ball of the 81st over is sent in at a length by Shakib. Pitches in line, impact in line and the wickets is umpire's call. Ashwin goes for 12 off 30, India are 286/8, lead by 59 runs. 

  • Dec 23, 2022 03:18 PM IST

    IND vs BAN 2nd Test Day 2 live score: FOUR! The very next ball

    Some salt and chilli masala on the wounds for Shakib. He crosses 3000 Test runs with that and becomes the second fastest to reach that mark and cross 400 Test wickets in the history of the game. Only behind the great Richard Hadlee of New Zealand. Ashwin comes down the track and launches Shakib over wide long-on. 

  • Dec 23, 2022 03:16 PM IST

    India vs Bangladesh 2nd Test Day 2 Live: Close call for Ashwin

    Big appeal from Bangladesh for LBW, Shakib himself is the bowler and he goes for the review right after the umpire shakes his head. Ashwin had taken a step down and looked to block it. No bat involved at all, the ball is crashing onto the stumps on ball tracking but the impact is umpire's call!

  • Dec 23, 2022 03:11 PM IST

    India vs Bangladesh 2nd Test Live Score: FOUR! India 277/7, lead by 50 runs

    Unadkat swipes Shakib through square leg for his first boundary. India recognising the fact that Unadkat has scored over 8000 runs in first class cricket by sending him in ahead of Umesh or Siraj.

    IND vs BAN 2nd Test Day 2 live score: OUT! Axar holes out

    Axar has been trying to hit sixes ever since he came into the middle. He ends up putting this straight down the throat of long-on. Just a little check from the third umpire to see if Shanto had stepped on the rope while completing the catch but it is declared to be a clean one. Axar falls for four, India 264/6, lead by 37 runs.

  • Dec 23, 2022 02:36 PM IST

    India vs Bangladesh 2nd Test Day 2 Live: OUT! PANT OUT IN THE 90s!

    Sixth time in his career this has happened, as Sanjay Manjrekar pointed out a number of times in the commentary box before the actual dismissal itself. Every heard of the commentator's curse? Slightly full from Miraz, Pant pushes at it, gets an outside edge before the ball reaches Nurul. He falls for 93 off 104 balls, India 253/5, lead by 26 runs. Partnership between Pant and Iyer was on 159 off 182 balls when the wicket fell. 

  • Dec 23, 2022 02:27 PM IST

    India vs Bangladesh 2nd Test Live Score: A little scare for Pant

    Iyer hits a length delivery outside off from Miraz straight to mid-off. Slight fumble and Pant takes a few steps outside to attempt the run. The fielder recovers quickly and darts the ball in, not a direct hit but the bowler takes the stumps. Pant had put in the dive and made ground comfortably as the replays showed. That is the closest Bangladesh have come to a wicket in this session, which is an indicator of just how flat they have been. 

  • Dec 23, 2022 02:21 PM IST

    2nd Test live score: India 241/4 in 64 overs

    Bangladesh shoulders have dropped. Pant has got to 91 off 93, Shreyas is on 68 off 82. India lead by 14 runs at the moment.

    IND vs BAN 2nd Test Day 2 live score: TEA! India 226/4, trail by 1 run

    KL Rahul, Shubman Gill, Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat Kohli all tried to play some patient Test cricket and they all perished. Then Rishabh Pant and Shreyas Iyer in the spirit of IPL auction day hit the Bazzballs out of Bangladesh and have put India firmly in the driver's seat. Wonder what that says about the right way to bat in present-day Test cricket. Pant is on 86 off 89, Iyer on 58 off 58, their partnership is 132 off 141 balls for the fifth wicket. 

  • Dec 23, 2022 01:40 PM IST

    India vs Bangladesh 2nd Test Day 2 Live: India 225/4 in 60 overs

  • Dec 23, 2022 01:32 PM IST

    India vs Bangladesh 2nd Test Live Score: Half-century for Shreyas Iyer!

    Khaled Ahmed brought back and bowls short to Iyer straightaway. The batter pulls three times, doesn't quite connect the third time but that is enough for him to take the single that gets him to his second half century of the series and fifth overall. It has come in 60 balls. 

  • Dec 23, 2022 01:28 PM IST

    2nd Test live score: SIX! More one-handed delights from Pant

    IND vs BAN 2nd Test Day 2 live score: SIX! Incredible from Pant!

  • Dec 23, 2022 01:16 PM IST

    India vs Bangladesh 2nd Test Live Score: FOUR!

    Short from Taijul, a hit-me ball and hit it does Shreyas Iyer. Smacked over deep midwicket for four. Conditions seem to have got better for batting and the Bangladeshis look a bit crestfallen. Iyer then takes a single after defending the next ball for a dot to get to 40 off 44 balls. India at the end of that over are 190/4, trail by 37 runs. In the words of Michael Scott, “How the turn tables”

  • Dec 23, 2022 01:04 PM IST

    2nd Test live score: DROPPED AND SIX!

    First two balls of the 53rd are quiet dot balls and then Pant skips down the track to Miraz and hits him towards long-on. He went against the spin here and could not get enough elevation, Mushfiqur is the fielder at long-on but he is a bit too far inside, tries to go for it one-handed after running back and only ends up parrying the ball over the ropes. He seems to be a bit winded after crashing to the ground.

  • Dec 23, 2022 12:55 PM IST

    2nd Test Day 2 live score: SIX! A one-hander from Pant!

    Shakib bowling the 51st, Pant charges down the track for the third ball and sends it over the bowler's head for his second six. The carnage continues. 

  • Dec 23, 2022 12:47 PM IST

    IND vs BAN 2nd Test Day 2 live score: DRINKS! India 160/4, trail Bangladesh by 67 runs

    These two have put up 66 runs off just 69 balls. Bangladesh can get back on top of they get a wicket here, they would prefer two of course. But at the moment, Pant and Iyer are pretty much running away with it. Another hour of this and India will take the lead and so Bangladesh need a wicket pronto.

  • Dec 23, 2022 12:43 PM IST

    India vs Bangladesh 2nd Test Day 2 Live: Iyer makes Bangladesh pay

    India are 160/4 in 49 overs. Shakib bowled this one and Nurul Hassan missed a stumping off the second ball. Iyer then cuts Shakib behind point off the fourth ball for a boundary, then smashes it over mid-off for another four off the last ball. 

  • Dec 23, 2022 12:39 PM IST

    India vs Bangladesh 2nd Test Live Score: 50 for Pant!

    It has come in just 49 balls. The batters run two for Pant to get there and it seems he hadn't realised it. Belatedly raises his bat to acknowledge the cheers from the crowd and his dressing room. That is Pant's 11th Test half century. 

  • Dec 23, 2022 12:37 PM IST

    2nd Test live score: SIX! Up, up and away from Pant!

    It took a while but it looks like Rishabh Pant fireworks have begun. He had gone down the track to Taijul first ball of the 48th and smashed the ball into the stumps at the non-striker's end. Then he brings out the slog sweep and hits a 102m monster. 

  • Dec 23, 2022 12:33 PM IST

    2nd Test Day 2 live score: Shakib brings himself on…

    … and concedes a boundary off the first ball of the 47th over. Sent in at a length and spinning towards the leg side, Pant simply helps it along its way. He moves to 40 off 44. 

  • Dec 23, 2022 12:27 PM IST

    IND vs BAN 2nd Test Day 2 live score: Back to back fours from Pant now!

    Just a perfect pair of shots from Pant. Khaled sends the fourth ball of the 45th full around off, Pant whips it past short midwicket. Khaled then changes to around the wicket, Pant stands outside his crease. The next ball is at a length outside off and angling in. It cramped the batter but Pant punches it behind point for another boundary. One run off the next ball and India are 136/4 in 45 overs, Pant on 35 off 39, Iyer on 20 off 22. Their partnership has raced to 42 off 45, easily India's best of the innings surpassing the Pujara-Kohli stand. 

  • Dec 23, 2022 12:23 PM IST

    India vs Bangladesh 2nd Test Day 2 Live: India 127/4 in 44 overs, trail Bangladesh by 100 runs

    That was a dramatic over. A couple of streaky shots from Iyer due to the extra bounce, an injury for Miraz after he put his body on the line to try and take a catch. The pitch is starting to talk for the pacers and Khaled Ahmed returns to further that conversation. 

  • Dec 23, 2022 12:19 PM IST

    India vs Bangladesh 2nd Test Live Score: Miraz almost takes a blinder!

    And hurts himself in the process. More drama off the very next ball and Taskin is getting some purchase from the surface now. Extra bounce again from the pacer, this time it is closer to gully. Miraz is the fielder and he leaps to his left, gets to the ball but can't hold on to it in the air. He ends up slamming his face full on the ground upon landing and needs help from the physio. Miraz eventually walks off. 

  • Dec 23, 2022 12:17 PM IST

    2nd Test live score: FOUR!

    Lucky for Iyer. Extra bounce from Taskin off the second ball of the 44th surprises Iyer and he somehow pushes it away, it flies between point and gully and goes to the boundary. 

  • Dec 23, 2022 12:13 PM IST

    2nd Test Day 2 live score: Direct hit and four overthrows!

    Unlucky there for Bangladesh. Iyer works a full delivery from Miraz towards square leg. Batters take a quick single and Shanto gets a direct hit, the ball ends up dribbling away to the boundary. Brief check for run out but Pant was comfortably home.

  • Dec 23, 2022 12:09 PM IST

    IND vs BAN 2nd Test Day 2 live score: Back to back fours from Iyer!

    India 112/4 in 42 overs, Iyer moves to 10 off 16, Pant is on 22 off 26. Taskin bowls the second last ball of the last over short and Iyer salps it throug midwicket. Then Taskin sends the last one into his body and Iyer swivels around to send the second one to the boundary. 

  • Dec 23, 2022 12:05 PM IST

    India vs Bangladesh 2nd Test Day 2 Live: India 103/4 in 41 overs

    Pant is on 21 off 23 while Shreyas Iyer has got two in 13 balls. Bangladesh continue with Taskin Ahmed and Mehidy Hasan Miraz. There have been some lusty pulls from Pant but they have all found the fielder. Thus far, Pant is yet to hit a rather rash, uppish shot though. 

  • Dec 23, 2022 11:49 AM IST

    India vs Bangladesh 2nd Test Live Score: GONE! IT'S KOHLI!

    Edged and gone! Length ball in Kohli's corridor of uncertainty, he pokes at it, takes an outside edge and the keeper pouches it. Virat Kohli falls for 24 off 73 balls, India 94/4 in 37.4 overs, trail Bangladesh by 133 runs.  

  • Dec 23, 2022 11:43 AM IST

    IND vs BAN 2nd Test Day 2 live score: What India have up next

    Shreyas Iyer, Axar Pate and Ravichandran Ashwin come next amomg the recognised batters, although it has to be said that Jaydev Unadkat can knock them around a bit as well. It is pretty clear that they need a big score from Kohli or Pant though.

  • Dec 23, 2022 11:19 AM IST

    India vs Bangladesh 2nd Test Day 2 Live: Starts but not much from India

    Bangladesh lost just two wickets in the first session of Day 1 while India have lost three today. Virat Kohli is on 18 off 65 balls while Pant is on 12 off 14.

  • Dec 23, 2022 11:02 AM IST

    India vs Bangladesh 2nd Test Live Score: LUNCH! India 86/3 in 36 overs

    India were a hair-length away from 86/4 at the end of that over due to a mix-up between Pant and Kohli. Kohli was on strike and he had run halfway down the pitch when Pant sent him back. He dives and just about makes his ground, then gets back and looks back in mild fury at Pant. All smiles after that as he walks to the other end to have a chat with his partner in which time, the umpire knocks off the bails and calls for Lunch. Bangladesh may have a millimetre of their noses in front because of the three wickets but they know they have a mountain to climb if they are to get this Indian innings over with a lead, or with the visitors having a slender enough lead for them to capitalise on with the bat. 

  • Dec 23, 2022 10:56 AM IST

    2nd Test live score: India 82/3, trail by 145

    Rishabh Pant is on nine runs off seven, having biffed a pull shot to deep midwicket off the first ball of the 34th over.

  • Dec 23, 2022 10:42 AM IST

    2nd Test Day 2 live score: OUT! Pujara goes!

    Third umpire says the fingers were completely under the ball and so Pujara has to go. Taijul Islam, what an impact he has made in this first session. Pujara falls after scoring 24 off 55 balls, Bangladesh 72/3 in 30.4 overs. Partnership between Pujara and Kohli lasted 93 balls and produced 34 runs.  

  • Dec 23, 2022 10:39 AM IST

    IND vs BAN 2nd Test Day 2 live score: Pujara in trouble!

    A sharp bat-pad catch and the question only seems to be whether Mominul had completed the catch or not. Soft signal is out. The Bangladeshis were cock-a-hoop, Pujara was in utter disbelief. Fullish from Taijul, it hits a thin inside edge, fielder takes it low. 

  • Dec 23, 2022 10:26 AM IST

    India vs Bangladesh 2nd Test Live Score: Partnership crosses into the 30s

    2nd Test live score: India 60/2, trail by 167

    Kohli is on 10 off 24, Pujara on 18 off 26. There have been some interesting bowling changes from Bangladesh, Shakib had come in for just one over it seems and it is now Taijul Islam and Mehidy Hasan Miraz alternating. 

  • Dec 23, 2022 09:52 AM IST

    2nd Test Day 2 live score: 7000 Test runs for Cheteshwar Pujara

    He becomes the eighth Indian batter, and only seventh among those active, to have crossed the mark. Does so by running three off the second last ball of the 19th over. India are 53/2 in 19 overs. 

  • Dec 23, 2022 09:51 AM IST

    IND vs BAN 2nd Test Day 2 live score: Shakib Al Hasan into the attack

    India are 48/2 in 18 overs. Pujara will be on strike, he is on 12 off 14 and so he has been going at a good click. Kohli is on four off 12. Pujara can cross 7000 career runs in this over, he is four runs away from the mark. 

  • Dec 23, 2022 09:44 AM IST

    India vs Bangladesh 2nd Test Day 2 Live: FOUR! Kohli gets going

    Might be a bit streaky but the former India captain has got his first boundary of the day. Short of a length outside off from Khaled, Kohli pushes it away from his body but could not keep it down. It luckily falls in the gap behind point and goes to the boundary. Kohli gets off the mark with that shot. 

  • Dec 23, 2022 09:36 AM IST

    India vs Bangladesh 2nd Test Live Score: OUT! And now Gill falls!

    What a start this is for Bangladesh! Taijul Islam has dismissed both openers within the first half an hour of the day. Gill falls for 20 off 39, India 38/2 in 15.1 overs.

    2nd Test live score: OUT! That's it for Rahul!

    Big appeal for LBW from Bangladesh, umpire turns it down but then they successfully review that call. Taijul Islam pitches the first ball of the 14th around off and it angles in. Rahul defends forward trying to get to the pitch of the ball, it hits him on the pads. Ball tracking shows that the ball would have hit middle and leg. Rahul falls for 10 off 45, India are 27/1 in 13.1 overs.

  • Dec 23, 2022 09:15 AM IST

    2nd Test Day 2 live score: FOUR! Rahul with the first boundary of the day

    It has been tough so far for the Indian openers, Gill has been beaten multiple times. But Rahul capitalises as soon as he sees a chance, length ball from Taijul outside off, Rahul rocks back and punches it through extra cover for four.

    India vs Bangladesh 2nd Test Day 2 Live: Virat Kohli's century drought

    The second half of 2022 has been all about Virat Kohli ending his century droughts. He scored his first ever T20I century during the T20 World Cup, his first ODI century in over three years during this tour, and now stands a chance at finishing the year with a Test century as well. Kohli's last century in the longest format had come in India's first-ever pink ball Test against the same opposition in Kolkata.

    Three roughs pretty close to the off stump thanks to Jaydev Unadkat, says Sanjay Manjrekar. “All three are in a significant and in fact one of them is actually in the danger so a slight oversight from the umpires. Unadkat pretty lucky to get away with it,” he says.

    India vs Bangladesh 2nd Test Day 2 Live: Jaydev Unadkat's comeback

    Unadkat's first and only Test match before this one came all the way back in December 2010 against South Africa in Centurion. The Indian bowlers were taken to the cleaners in that game and Unadkat was no different. He bowled 26 overs, conceded 101 runs and took no wickets. It was quite a different story yesterday. He was giving all kinds of problems to the Bangladesh openers with his short deliveries and got his first wicket in the form of first Test centurion Zakir Hasan. He then got the big wicket of Mushfiqur Rahim to make it two for the innings.

    It is not like India have suffered in Kuldeep's absence but former players and experts are flabbergasted by the spinner being dropped for this Test despite his player of the match performance in the last one. Many of them seem to be of the sentiment that dropping a player who has been struggling for confidence over the last two and a half years right after he delivers a player of the match performance in a format he didn't get to play too often even when he was a regular in the Indian limited overs sides, might not actually be great as far as his confidence is concerned. India may have missed a trick in showing good man management here.

    India vs Bangladesh 2nd Test Day 2 Live: Hello and welcome!

    A number of Bangladesh players got starts yesterday but only Mominul Haque managed to convert that into something significant. They had fairly good partnerships throughout their top five but then fell in a heap in the final session and thus, those stunted starts cost them dear. India would be hoping that their top five can do better and their tail certainly has more quality than Bangladesh's does. We could be in for another intriguing day of Test cricket in Mirpur. Sit tight and enjoy the ride.
