India leads a modest pursuit on weak terrain

Day 3 ended with seven wickets falling in the final session, but the home team brought the scales back into balance by allowing four of those wickets to fall to them. KL Rahul, Cheteshwar Pujara, Shubman Gill, and Virat Kohli were all bowled by Mehidy Hasan Miraz and Shakib Al Hasan for just 37 runs after Bangladesh set a goal of 145. With Axar Patel and Jaydev Unadkat in the middle and 100 runs left to score, India closed the day on 45 for 4.

Shakib Al Hasan and fellow left-arm spinner Taijul Islam began the bowling after Shakib Al Hasan had observed enough of the field. The Bangladesh captain had a close LBW decision made against him on the very first ball of the session, but in the third over, he managed to get his opposite number, KL Rahul, to nick a flighted delivery spinning away from him, to the keeper. With a few fielders surrounding the bat, Bangladesh applied intense pressure, and it was well worth it. Normally, Cheteshwar Pujara has little trouble charging spinners, but on this particular instance, he stumbled due to some hesitancy.

He danced down against Mehidy, but he didn't appear to know whether to take a shot or just deflect the ball. He missed it in the process and was perplexed. India moved Axar Patel up to position four as the sun started to set. He was prepared to battle till the day's end, but batters on the other end were not. Gill was the next to go down after he missed the ball when stepping out to Mehidy and being stumped.

Virat Kohli inside-edged a Mehidy delivery, which an alert and nimble Mominul Haque expertly grasped at short leg, sending Bangladesh into a frenzy. As was to be expected, the celebrations were raucous, which even irritated Kohli before he left. India concluded the day at 45 for 4 without suffering any more losses.

Even though India left having given Bangladesh the day's constantly shifting momentum, they had gotten off to a much stronger start. There was turn and bounce available, and in the first over of the day, R Ashwin twice disturbed Najmul Hossain Shanto, the opener. Najmul managed to get away the first time, costing India a review for LBW, but he wasn't as fortunate the second time around as was trapped leg first. Before the lunch break, Mohammed Siraj and Jaydev Unadkat each took a wicket to bring Bangladesh to 71 for 4, still trailing India.

However, the second session saw the game progress at twice the rate as Zakir Hasan scored 50 runs. Soon after, he was struck by a harmless delivery, but Litton Das' battle and Nurul Hasan's appearance immediately moved Bangladesh forward. Although India frequently struck through Axar, the hosts were able to continue thanks to a fifty from Litton and a 31-ball score from Nurul. Taskin Ahmed, who also scored 31 runs while putting together a 60-run stand for the eighth wicket, proved to be a tenacious ally for Litton even after Nurul perished with the score at 159 for 7. Bangladesh was dismissed for 231 early in the last session before their bowlers caused mayhem and set up a thrilling conclusion over the following several sessions.
