Ajinkya Rahane dropped three catches:

Firstly, he dropped Mominul Haque off Ravichandran Ashwin when the edge of Haque shelled down by Ajinkya Rahane at slip. Though it was a bit difficult catch, Rahane has started to trend for taking those catches in the past. Later, on the other side, Mushfiqur Rahim got the reprive after failing to catch a sitter.

Once again, Ravichandran Ashwin was brilliant enough to get the edge of Mahmudullah, however, Ajinkya Rahane’s butterfingers was still the same, as he shelled out to give a chance for the Bangladesh’s crucial player.

Coming to the match progress, initially, it was Mominul Haque, who won the toss, elected to bat first despite the pitch looked brilliant for the bowlers. The inexperienced openers walked back for a cheap score while Mohammad Mithun had a tough time in the middle for a short stay.

However, the skipper Mominul Haque and the experienced Mushfiqur Rahim did the trick for Bangladesh with a crucial partnership for the fourth wicket. Just when things looked good for Bangladesh, Mominul Haque left the straight delivery of Ashwin on to his stumps thus giving a chance to make a comeback for India.

He was quickly followed by Mahmudullah Riyad while the young Liton Das and his senior wicket-keeper Mushfiqur Rahim are fighting it out for the team in the middle.
