India vs Bangladesh 2nd Test Day 3 Highlights: While the first half of the day may have belonged to India, Bangladesh made a comeback towards the second half, first with the bat and then with the ball. Litton Das led their batting recovery alongwith Taskin Ahmed and Nurul Hasan, ensuring that Bangladesh end up setting a target of 145 for India to chase. India's top order was then blown away, with KL Rahul, Shubman Gill, Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat Kohli all falling for single digit scores. ...Read More

IND vs BAN 2nd Test Day 3 Live: STUMPS! India 45/4, need 100 to win

Axar ends the day with a four. He will resume his innings tomorrow on an overnight score of 26 off 54 and it is his innings that has kept India slightly ahead here despite the fact that they have lost their top order batters for single digit scores. Bangladesh really have made a match of this though, and by no means is this going to be a straightforward task for India. 

Dec 24, 2022 4:24 PM IST

IND vs BAN 2nd Test Live: Last over of the day

What an extraordinary day this has been. Taijul Islam has the ball in his hands, Axar Patel on strike with nightwatchman Jaydev Unadkat at the other end. India 41/4, need 104 runs to win

Dec 24, 2022 4:13 PM IST

2nd Test Day 3 Live Score: OUT! Kohli goes!

Well, well, some sparks flying here, Kohli falls to Mehidy Hasan Miraz. After that Kohli goes and has a few angry words with Shakib Al Hasan. Bangladesh clearly have the upper hand now, the Indian scorecard makes for utterly dismal reading at the moment. India 37/4, need 108 runs to win. 

Dec 24, 2022 4:06 PM IST

India vs Bangladesh 2nd Test Live Score: Kohli reverses an LBW call

Big, big appeal for LBW from Taijul and Bangladesh and the umpire raises his finger. Kohli takes the review straightaway so that dampens Bangladesh's spirits already. Sure enough, there was an inside edge before the ball hit the pad. 

Dec 24, 2022 4:03 PM IST

India vs Bangladesh 2nd Test Day 3 Live: India 32/3 in 16 overs 

Nervy stuff this for the Indians. Virat Kohli has been sent in, there is still a lot of time for stumps and India certainly won't be sending in a nightwatchman at this point. 

Dec 24, 2022 3:53 PM IST

IND vs BAN 2nd Test Day 3 Live score: OUT! Gill is stumped

Fantastic delivery from Mehidy, Gill goes for a walk and his poles are ripped. Gill falls for seven off 35 balls.  India 29/3, need 116 to win.

Dec 24, 2022 3:43 PM IST

IND vs BAN 2nd Test Day 3 Live: FOUR! 

Axar rocks back, clears his front leg and sends the ball crashing through cover off Shakib.

Dec 24, 2022 3:38 PM IST

IND vs BAN 2nd Test Live: India 17/2 after 9 overs

India send in Axar Patel in place of Virat Kohli. This is no night watchman, India are clearly trying to unsettle Shakib with this left-hand right-hand combination. 

Dec 24, 2022 3:29 PM IST

India vs Bangladesh Live Updates: OUT!

ANOTHER WICKET! Cheteshwar Pujara fails to reach the crease in time as Nurul Hasan remains alert with lightning quick stumping! 

India lose their second! 12/2

Dec 24, 2022 3:22 PM IST

IND vs BAN Live Updates: First four!

And it comes off Pujara's bat. Poor line as Shakib bowls down the leg side, allowing Pujara to go for the sweep. He easily beats the fielder at fine leg. That should release some pressure!

India 9/1 in five overs. Target 145

Dec 24, 2022 3:20 PM IST

India vs Bangladesh Live Score: Cheteshwar Pujara joins Gill

India will hope Pujara to calm things down after the unexpected early dismissal of their captain Rahul.

Dec 24, 2022 3:15 PM IST

2nd Test Day 3 Live Score: KL RAHUL DISMISSED!

Yet another failure for the Indian captain. Shakib Al Hasan strikes, Rahul departs for 2! A faint outside edge results results in an end to Rahul's brief stay at the crease. Shakib's delivery turns sharply away from the right-hander. Brilliant catch by Nurul Hasan

Dec 24, 2022 3:09 PM IST

2nd Test Day 3 Live Score: India 2/0 after first over

The openers are pretty lucky to have survived that over. After Gill's close call with the LBW, Rahul's attempted tuck away to the leg side goes just centimetres past short leg. The fielder probably should have reacted faster.

Dec 24, 2022 3:04 PM IST

India vs Bangladesh 2nd Test Live Score: Appeal and review off the first ball!

Shakib Al Hasan bowling the first over, Shubman Gill on strike, big appeal for LBW off the very first ball. Umpire turns it down and Shakib aggressively makes the T before turning away in disappointment. That certainly was worth the DRS, it was mighty close, just about going down the leg side. Fantastic call from the umpire. 

Dec 24, 2022 2:54 PM IST

India vs Bangladesh 2nd Test Day 3 Live: Bangladesh 231 all out, set India a target of 145 to win

Taskin is unbeaten on 31 off 46. Fantastic hand from him, Litton Das and Zakir Hasan but the opposite can be said about the rest of the batters, including the experienced seniors Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim. The contribution from the lower middle order shows that Bangladesh could have set India a target close to 250 had even one of the top five apart from Zakir clicked and possibly scored more than the young opener. For now, though, India do have a job in their hands. 

Dec 24, 2022 2:51 PM IST

IND vs BAN 2nd Test Day 3 Live score: OUT! A mix-up ends the innings!

How about that, a rather sloppy piece of cricket all-round ends the innings. Khaled goes scampering forward for a single that simply is not there, short leg Shubman Gill makes a leisurely, loopy throw to Axar who quickly dislodges the bail. 

Dec 24, 2022 2:44 PM IST

IND vs BAN 2nd Test Day 3 Live: FOUR! Taskin goes aerial!

Taskin comes down the ground and smashes Siraj over mid-off. He then takes a single and gives Khaled Ahmed two balls to survive.

Dec 24, 2022 2:38 PM IST

IND vs BAN 2nd Test Live: GONE! When it rains it pours

Ashwin gets Taijul Islam off the first ball of the 68th! Big appeal from the Indians as a length ball hits Taijul on the kneeroll. Umpire raises the finger, Taijul takes the review of course and the umpire's call is what is held up by the ball tracker. Bangladesh 220/9, lead by 133 runs. 

Dec 24, 2022 2:32 PM IST

2nd Test Day 3 Live Score: OUT! Siraj gets Litton!

Siraj cleans him up! Sharp jag back from a good length, Litton seems to have been beaten for pace. The ball crashes to the top of the stumps. That partnership ends at 60 off 76 balls. 

Dec 24, 2022 2:26 PM IST

India vs Bangladesh 2nd Test Live Score: Taskin overturns an LBW decision

Not the greatest of decisions from the umpire. Loud appeal from the Indians after the length delivery from Siraj raps Taskin on the pads. Umpire raises the finger quite late and Litton asked Taskin to review it almost immediately. As it turns out, the ball had pitched well outside leg. Bangladesh are 216/7, lead by 129 runs. Litton on 71 off 92, Taskin on 23 off 34. 

Dec 24, 2022 2:14 PM IST

India vs Bangladesh 2nd Test Day 3 Live: FOUR! 50 partnership between Litton and Taskin

Thick outside edge from Taskin, it goes just past gully and runs to the boundary. Partnership has gone to 51 off 52. Lead is now 123, there are a few worried faces now among the Indians. This innings should have been done and dusted by now considering how things were going for much of the second session. 

Dec 24, 2022 2:12 PM IST

IND vs BAN 2nd Test Day 3 Live score: FOUR! Litton motors along

Axar bowls the fifth ball of the 62nd over at a length outside off, Litton plays it nice and late and carresses it to the boundary. He moves to 68 off 86. 

Dec 24, 2022 2:07 PM IST

IND vs BAN 2nd Test Day 3 Live: 200 up for Bangladesh

A rush of blood to Litton's head maybe? He slapped the second delivery of the over above cover for four. Then Litton charges down the track and slices the next delivery. He only got it off the outside edge and fortunately for him, fell front of point.

Dec 24, 2022 2:03 PM IST

IND vs BAN 2nd Test Live: The players are back

Siraj bowling the first over of the third session. Litton Das is on strike, he is on 58 off 78 balls, Taskin Ahmed on 15 off 18. If these two can play just the way they have thus far for another hour, this match will become pretty interesting. 

Dec 24, 2022 1:48 PM IST

2nd Test Day 3 Live Score: TEA! Bangladesh 195/7 in 60 overs, lead by 108 runs

124 runs have been scored in 27 overs for three wickets in this session. It looked like Bangladesh might struggle to reach a lead of 50 but they have raced past 100 now thanks to the counter-punch first led by Nurul Hassan and then continued by Litton Das. 

Dec 24, 2022 1:43 PM IST

India vs Bangladesh 2nd Test Live Score: FOUR! Taskin takes Bangladesh's lead past 100

Big sweep and Taskin manages to beat the fielder at the deep midwicket boundary. This will be the last over before tea and, as stated before, it is pretty clear now that this match is going to a fourth day at least. 

Dec 24, 2022 1:37 PM IST

India vs Bangladesh 2nd Test Day 3 Live: DROPPED! Litton gets to his fifty!

Bangladesh 176/7, lead by 87. Litton tries to defend from his backfoot, the ball went away from him, took the outside edge and Kohli dove to his right but can't make it stick at slip. 

Dec 24, 2022 1:35 PM IST

IND vs BAN 2nd Test Day 3 Live score: India run out of luck with LBWs

Litton Das succesfully reverses an LBW decision that India got in their favour. Axar sent this one full and it came into Litton, hits him around the knee roll. Umpire gave it out but Litton went for the DRS, as it turns out the ball would have missed leg stump. 

Dec 24, 2022 1:19 PM IST

IND vs BAN 2nd Test Day 3 Live: OUT! 

That's the end of Nurul's cameo. He is drawn forward as he looks to push but doesn't get to the pitch of the ball. Pant is quick to dislodge the bails once it gets to him. That partnership ends at 46 off 48 balls.

Dec 24, 2022 1:08 PM IST

2nd Test Day 3 Live Score: DROPPED AND FOUR!

Axar gets an outside edge off Nurul and ricochets off Pant's gloves to the boundary. Pant didn't have any time to react there but wicketkeepers are expected to take those. 

Dec 24, 2022 1:07 PM IST

India vs Bangladesh 2nd Test Live Score: Bangaldesh 153/6

Lead has now reached 66 runs. These two have rotated strike really well so, hardly any dot balls since Nurul has come into the middle. 

Dec 24, 2022 1:00 PM IST

India vs Bangladesh 2nd Test Day 3 Live: FOUR! Litton sweeps again!

He defends the next ball and then sweeps Axar again. This partnership has reached 33 in 27 balls, Bangladesh's best of this innings. 

Dec 24, 2022 12:59 PM IST

IND vs BAN 2nd Test Day 3 Live score: FOUR! 

Full from Axar, Litton deploys the sweep and smacks it to the boundary. Bangladesh are on the counter now. 

Dec 24, 2022 12:54 PM IST

IND vs BAN 2nd Test Day 3 Live: SIX! Have some of that says Nurul!

Ashwin comes back to replace Umesh and his first ball is sent back over his head by Nurul Hasan for a six. Nurul danced down the track to get to that one. He has raced to 18 off 11, Bangladesh are 132/6, lead by 45 runs. This is turning out to be a lovely little cameo. 

Dec 24, 2022 12:48 PM IST

IND vs BAN 2nd Test Day 3 Live: FOUR! Nurul Hasan uses the width

Length ball from Umesh, wide outside off, Nurul cuts it to the boundary. Bangladesh need a lot more of those. Their lead is only 33 runs and they have four extremely shaky lower orders batters to come. 

Dec 24, 2022 12:45 PM IST

IND vs BAN 2nd Test Live: OUT! Axar gets his 2nd

Another LBW, India just chipping away now. Mehidy has a brief conversation with Litton before deciding against the review. Sure enough, that ball would have been crashing into middle stup. Mehidy falls for a duck, Bangladesh 113/6. 

Dec 24, 2022 12:39 PM IST

2nd Test Day 3 Live Score: Bangladesh 112/5 in 45 overs 

 Lead by 26 runs.  Litton Das hit two fours in the 44th over, one of which was a rather lucky edge that Virat Kohli did not pocket at slip only because he went wrong at preempting if the ball will go to his left or right. He is on 27 off 38 balls. 

Dec 24, 2022 12:25 PM IST

India vs Bangladesh 2nd Test Live Score: OUT! Zakir falls!

Zakir slashes at a short, wide delivery outside off and puts it into the hands of Mohammad Siraj at at deep thirdman. Umesh Yadav takes the big scalp. Zakir goes for 51 off 135 balls, Bangladesh 102/5, lead by 15 runs. 

Dec 24, 2022 12:16 PM IST

India vs Bangladesh 2nd Test Day 3 Live: 50 for Zakir!

The batters run three off the second ball of the 41st over bowled by Umesh Yadav and that takes Zakir past his half century. What a start he has had to his Test career. Big round of applause for him from around the ground.

Dec 24, 2022 12:02 PM IST

IND vs BAN 2nd Test Day 3 Live score: India burn their last review

Rahul tapping the sides of his head as he walks back to his position, Unadkat shaking his head. That was another strange review and now, India have none left. Big shout for LBW after Unadkat's third delivery of the 37th over raps Zakir on the pads. It was a length delivery that Zakir tried to defend with a rather closed bat face. Rahul seems to be saying that there is bat on it but somehow, someone convinces him to take the review. Sure enough, the first replay itself shows there is bat on it and Zakir is safe. India's review game in this innings was questionable at best. 

Dec 24, 2022 12:00 PM IST

IND vs BAN 2nd Test Day 3 Live: Bangladesh 84/4 in 36 overs

Zakir is on 43 off 107 balls and Litton on six off 14 balls. Litton has had a few big swipes but seems to have settled down, at least for now. 

Dec 24, 2022 11:45 AM IST

IND vs BAN 2nd Test Live: The players are back!

Here are Zakir Hassan and Litton Das. Axar Patel has the ball in his hands. This session will decide if this Test ends today or not. 

Dec 24, 2022 11:28 AM IST

2nd Test Day 3 Live Score: Zakir stands strong

There was arguably just one blemish thus far in his innings and that was when he went for that wild slog sweep off Ashwin suddenly and missed it entirely. He had scored a century in the second innings during the last Test, he is on 37 off 96 balls now. Wonder how far he can go here but Bangladesh would most probably need him to score another century to make this match competitive.

Dec 24, 2022 11:06 AM IST

India vs Bangladesh 2nd Test Live Score: LUNCH! Bangladesh 71/4, trail by 16 runs

That wicket of Mushfiqur has put India clearly ahead. Zakir Hasan has held up one end for Bangladesh, he is on 37 off 96. Unadkat, Siraj, Ashwin and Axar have all struck and Bangladesh now face an uphill struggle to put up a competitive target. They need a partnership like the one that Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant put up yesterday.

Dec 24, 2022 10:56 AM IST

India vs Bangladesh 2nd Test Day 3 Live: GONE! Axar gets Mushfiqur!

That's that for Mushfiqur. He had been set up by Axar in the previous over really, pushed him to the backfoot. Axar sends the first ball of the 32nd at a length, it comes in sharply and hits him on the pads while he was looking to defend from the backfoot. Umpire raises his finger straightaway, Mushfiqur stands at a crease for a while before taking the review. It is three reds and Bangladesh lose their fourth. Bangladesh are 70/4, trail by 17 runs

Dec 24, 2022 10:49 AM IST

IND vs BAN 2nd Test Day 3 Live score: Bangladesh 66/3 in 30 overs, trail by 21 runs

Axar Patel bowled his first over of the innings and beats Mushfiqur's outside edge off the last ball with the bounce he got. 

Dec 24, 2022 10:41 AM IST

IND vs BAN 2nd Test Day 3 Live: Pant needing some attention

The batters go for a tight second after Mushfiqur dabs Unadkat to deep backward square leg. There was some confusion between the batters with Zakir reluctant to go back but they go for it anyway. Pant moves away from the stumps when collecting the ball, which was not on its way to hit the target either. It bounces off his chest and seems to have hit him on the chin as well.

Dec 24, 2022 10:22 AM IST

IND vs BAN 2nd Test Live: GONE! Unadkat gets Shakib!

Length ball from Unadkat, Shakib comes forward and pushes at it with hard, hard hands. It hits him high on the bat and goes straight to Gill at extra cover. Soft dismissal and the Bangladesh captain will not be happy about he has batted throughout this series. Shakib Al Hasanis gone for 13, Bangladesh 51/3

Dec 24, 2022 10:06 AM IST

2nd Test Day 3 Live Score: Some Kohli talk during drinks

Rahul stood back and let the former captain do the talking during the drinks after the first hour of the first session. This is anybody's game at the moment but India certainly are slightly ahead. Tantalisingly poised. Bangladesh 42/2 after 20 overs, trail by 45 runs. 

Dec 24, 2022 9:59 AM IST

India vs Bangladesh 2nd Test Live Score: Bangladesh 40/2, trail by 47

Zakir Hasan, who has been absolutely solid today, suddenly went for an almighty slog sweep off Ashwin at the end of the last over and missed the red thing entirely. That came out of nowhere and it does look like the constant chatter among the Indian fielders surrounding him did get to his head. Shakib was smiling ear to ear as he went up the pitch and had a chat with him after that.
