16:56 IST: That's it from us!!! Hope you enjoyed our coverage, Adios!!
16:50 IST: Wriddhiman Saha after the match: My confidence is high after the Irani trophy. My coach and captain asked me to keep playing my natural game. I was also lucky enough to get a chance first up after the keeper (Mushfiqur) missed out on the chance. In the Irani final, Pujara was batting at the other end and there was no scope of him getting out there. I tried to play positive because they were bowling fuller lengths and it worked out well. When I came out to bat there was no thought of the declaration and in the last half an hour when we got the message Jaddu and me went after it. I honestly did not hear the nick on the catch that I took. I was in a good position to take the catch and that is the reason I was able to take it well. I think if we just carry on tomorrow the way we did today and bowl in tight lines, we should be able to restrict them to a low score.

13:55 IST: India cross 600!! Saha and Jadeja look good at the crease now. How much should India target before declaration?
13:44 IST: India nears 600 now. All forms of the sweep on display. Jadeja deliberately gets himself well inside the line and just taps the ball on its head as he darts it very fine.
13:37 IST: Fifty! Wriddhiman Saha scores his fifth half-century. India 573/6 in 142.1 overs
13:32 IST: OUT!! Ashwin playing the wrong line and gets caught in the first slip off Mehedi Hasan. He falls on 34

Four double centuries in less than a year by @imVkohli. How's that for Bradmensque batting?— Cricketwallah (@cricketwallah) February 10, 2017
12:35 IST: India goes past 500 now. Ashwin and Saha at the crease
12:30 IST: OUT!! Virat Kohli falls after double ton. The Indian captain doesn't even bother to review, off he goes on 204. He knew it was pad first, the impact was just around off
12:19 IST: That's it!!! He smashes his 4th double century off 239 balls. Four double-centuries in four consecutive series for Virat Kohli, the first batsman to do so!
12:18 IST: Virat Kohli goes to 198 with a cheeky shot
12:17 IST: Kohli had 10 boundaries in the first 100 and 13 boundaries in his next 96 runs.
12:16 IST: India 484/4, Virat Kohli 195*, Wriddhiman Saha 7*
12:15 IST: Kohli nudges it towards the third man area. He is on 194 now.
12:10 IST: We are back!! Yet another masterclass from the master batsman and he is just 9 runs short of his 4th double ton
11:30 IST: It's LUNCH! India 477/4 in 121 overs, Kohli 191*, Saha 4*. The hosts scored 121 runs in the session
11:27 IST: DROPPED! Kohli tries to hammer it through the mid-wicket and the fielder drops him again. Well, Bangladesh are really struggling here
11:26 IST: FOUR!! Clever shot by Kohli towards the third-man area off Taijul Islam. He is nearing his double ton now
11:23 IST: FOUR!! Kohli is back in the groove after a tough half an hour. Cracking shot by the Indian skipper
11:20 IST: Oh dear!!! What a poor cricket by the Bangladesh skipper. Saha was way ahead of the crease and he missed a clear stumping opportunity.
11:18 IST: There is a sudden turn around in the past half an hour or so. Bangladesh have really made a surprising comeback
11:17 IST: NOT OUT!! Lucky Kohli. Third umpire turns down the decision. The ball spun a mile hitting his pads.
11:15 IST: REVIEW! Kohli given out by the umpire and India go for a review
11:12 IST: FOUR! Wriddhiman Saha gets off-the mark with a cover drive
11:03 IST: OUT!! First wicket for Bangladesh this morning. Rash shot by him and a brilliant catch by Mehedi Hasan at point
11:02 IST: Rahane is on 82 and he desperately needs a hundred here. He had a bad series against England and with Karun Nair being dropped for him, he needs to prove and justify his place.
10:53 IST: Ajinkya Rahane tries to glance it down the leg side and misses. Huge appeal for a caught behind but the umpire turns it down.
10:52 IST: Beautiful delivery by Taijul Islam to square Kohli up.
10:51 IST: 83 runs from 17 overs with 4.83 runs per over in this session for India

Virat Kohli 1108* runs in 2016/17
Virender Sehwag 1105 runs in 2004/05#IndvBan
10:50 IST: Bangladesh bowlers have been poor this morning, bowling short and wide deliveries. And, the captain has looked without any vision and plan.
10:47 IST: If it goes on like this then Bangladesh will be under serious trouble. More carnage from India is expected for sure!
10:43 IST: Kohli and Rahane have certainly given a lot of headache to Bangladesh captain Mushfiqur Rahim. India have the visitors at their mercy.
10:42 IST: FOUR! Kohli cuts and hits it for a boundary.
10:25 IST: FOUR! Rahane smashes it over mid-wicket. This is scintillating stuff from both the Indian batsmen
10:21 IST: DROPPED! It was a difficult chance though in the square boundary region and Sabbir did well to go for it. Rahane gets life
10:19 IST: India have scored 55 runs in 10.2 overs today with 5.32 runs per over
10:17 IST: Nine boundaries already in the 45-minutes of play today. India are 411/3 after 100 overs

10:12 IST: FOUR! Rahane joins the party this time!! a freebie from Taskin Ahmed
10:11 IST: 150! Kohli takes the single and in no-time reaches to 150
10:10 IST: FOUR! It's surreal!! Kohli picks the gap again to reach to 149. India cross 400
10:06 IST: The run-rate is relentless today. If India goes with the same pace, many records will be made and broken for sure
10:04 IST: FOUR! Kohli hits the lofted shot off Shakib-Al-Hasan and gets the boundary again
10:03 IST: More players are on the boundary than in the catching areas.
10:02 IST: India are 392/3 after 97 overs. They have already scored 36 runs in 7 overs. Virat Kohli 140*, Ajinkya Rahane 52*
10:01 IST: FOUR! The upper cut now!! Just opened the face of the bat to pick his point
09:58 IST: FOUR! Kohli is unstoppable and just toying with Bangladesh attack. They both complete 150-run partnership too
09:55 IST: FOUR!! Oh!! steps out and hits it towards the mid-wicket. He completes his 10th half-century
09:51 IST: FOUR! Kohli shuffles across and plays the on-drive for a boundary. Nobody moved except the scoreboard
09:49 IST: Kohli is looking good and has not taken any time settle. Superb drive again by the skipper and well saved by Sabbir Rahman. Sheer elegance!
09:42 IST: FOUR! Poor delivery by Taskin again and free gift for Kohli
09:41 IST: FOUR! Short-pitch delivery by Taskin and Kohli goes for it and gets a boundary

09:33 IST: Appeal for a run-out!! The short leg is into the act but Rahane gets the bat down in time and safe
09:31 IST: As Sunil Gavaskar says, the pitch is a beauty to bat on today and we can see flurry of runs
09:30 IST: Taskin Ahmed to start the proceedings from Bangladesh. Virat Kohli let's the ball go away
09:11 IST: The Day 2 of India vs Bangladesh one-off Test is about to start. India are 356/3 with Virat Kohli batting on 111 and Ajinkya Rahane on 45
09:10 IST: Hello and welcome to the live blog
Vijay made 108 before getting dismissed while trying to play a paddle sweep off Taijul Islam. Indian captain Kohli looked in glorious touch and reached his 16th ton without any problems. Kohli (111*) made batting look easy as he piled on the runs with utmost ease. Giving him company was Ajinkya Rahane, who looked comfortable during his knock and remained unbeaten on 45 at the end of the first day's play.
For Bangladesh, there was little to show as the bowlers failed to make an impact in any of the three sessions. Taijul Islam was the pick of the bowlers for them and returned with figures of 1 for 50 at the end of Day 1. Taskin Ahmed and Mehedi Hasan Miraz were the other two wicket takers for the visitors.
On Day 2, the visitors will look to dismiss Kohli early and apply pressure on the Indians. The Hyderabad crowd, however, will be hoping that the star batsman goes on to get another double hundred.
