09:11 IST: It's India who are ruling the roost in the off-Test against Bangladesh. They have posted a humongous total of 687/6 decl. Bangladesh still trail by 646 runs and they will have to really bat well to match the hosts up.
09:10 IST: Good morning!!! Welcome to the live blog
Bangladesh negotiated the new ball well till the time Umesh Yadav got the better of Soumya Sarkar, who looked good just before getting an inside edge to the keeper. Tamim Iqbal and Mominul Haque held fort as Bangladesh reached 41 for 1 at the end of second day's play.
On Day 3, India will look to pick up early wickets with the new ball and bring the spinners, Ravichandran Ashwin and Jadeja, into play. Bangladesh, on the other hand, will try to defy India's bowling attack on surface that has favoured the batsmen so far. The visitors' first target would be to avoid the follow-on and thereafter reach as close to the Indian total as possible. An intriguing day's play is on the cards.
