Here are the LIVE updates from Day 3 of the first test match between India and Bangladesh straight from Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Chattogram
India vs Bangladesh Live: What a ball!
That was an absolute jaffa from Taijul Islam! It had been thrown around an area of good length. The ball was shot into Shubman Gill at an angle, but spun viciously after pitching and missed the edge of his bat. Deliveries like this require luck to survive and Gill was lucky this time.
IND 404 & 22/0 (9.2)
India vs Bangladesh Live: Great Review!
Shubman Gill had missed Taijul Islam’s ball. The ball had hit his front cushion and the umpire was convinced of the roll call. Gill decided to move up and the decision turned out to be a good one as tracking the ball suggested he would have missed the leg stump.
IND 404 & 10/0 (3.1)
10:06 AM (IST)
India vs Bangladesh Live: FOUR!
A sweet and powerful cover drive by KL Rahul for a foursome. It was fuller outside the stump and all Rahul needed was to find the hole in the coverage area. He did that with ease. India and Rahul are not among them!
IND 404 & 4/0 (1)

BAN 150 (55.5)
India vs Bangladesh Live: Great Review from Bangladesh!
It appeared that Axar Patel had framed Khaled Ahmed for the stumps. Umpire was also convinced, but Khaled went up and it turned out to be a good judgment on his part, as the UltraEdge showed a big spike as the ball passed his bat before hitting the front pad.
BAN 149/9 (54)
India vs Bangladesh Live: Pure Dominance of India!
Bangladesh are nine times behind and need 60 more runs to avoid a follow-up. Besides Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Siraj also shone with 3 wickets so far. Meanwhile, Umesh Yadav has claimed one wicket.
BAN 145/9 (52)
India vs Bangladesh Live: 5-wicket draw for Kuldeep Yadav!
Kuldeep Yadav gets the wicket from Ebadot Hossain and it’s a five wicket haul for him, his third in the format. Take a bow, man! The ball spun and caught the edge of Hossain’s bat on the leg side and Rishabh Pant made a really good catch.
BAN 144/9 (48.5)
India vs Bangladesh Live: Play on Day 3 kicks off!
Play on day 3 of the first test between India and Bangladesh in Chittagong has started! Mehidy Hasan Miraz resumes with his individual score of 16, while Kuldeep Yadav will bowl the first over of the day. Here we go!
India vs Bangladesh Live: Bangladesh aims to avoid follow up
Bangladesh start their first innings on Day 3 and need another 72 runs to avoid the follow-on. In all likelihood, India will also try to bat for the second time as the field is deteriorating with time and it would probably be a tough challenge to bat in the last innings.
