For India A, there was a bit of luck involved as well, one which had left Bangladesh players in complete shock.

India A squad began the first of the two unofficial four-day ‘Test’ matches in their tour of Bangladesh on Tuesday at the Sheikh Kamal International Cricket Stadium in Cox's Bazar. The visitors ended Day 1 on top after Saurabh Kumar and Navdeep Saini combined to fold Bangladesh A for just 112 before the opening pair of Yashasvi Jaiswal and captain Abhimanyu Easwaran stitched an unbeaten 120-run stand to put India eight runs ahead in the first innings of the match.

For India A, there was a bit of luck involved as well, one which had left Bangladesh players in complete shock. It happened in the ninth over of India A's innings when Easwaran pushed for a quick single after fending off the delivery from pacer Khaled Ahmed. But the fielder stationed at mid-on quickly sprinted, collected the ball and threw it towards the non-striker's end, dislodging the bails.

Ahmed quickly appealed and so did the rest of the Bangladesh A players, but umpire denied the appeal. Replays later showed that Easwaran had missed the crease by millimetres when the throw unsettled the stumps.
