Pant and Iyer devised their own version of ‘Bazball’ after Taijul Islam troubled the Indian hitters on Day 2. Shubman Gill, KL Rahul, and Cheteshwar Pujar were all out in the first session, and Virat Kohli was out early in the second. Iyer and Pant, on the other hand, opened with a counter-attack and thereafter mainly sustained the run pace to push India above Bangladesh’s total.

India was eventually all out for 314 runs, giving them an 87-run lead. Bangladesh made seven runs off it and finished at 7/0, trailing the visitors by 80 runs.

“He has the ability to take the pressure off his partner. I feel he is okay, he was getting cramps. I think he will be ready to pounce tomorrow. The ball is kept low, the wicket has variable bounce. The contributions by the bowlers in the first innings, it was commendable. We just need to find the right lengths and bowls in the right areas,” Shreyas Iyer Added.

India may have a minor advantage because Bangladesh still needs to score 80 runs before it can truly set a target for them.
