15:38 IST: Soumya Sarkar and Mominul Haque have steadied the Bangladesh ship to some extent. However, they still need to do a lot. Someone from the Bangladesh line-up need to take the responsibility to score big.

14:01 IST: Six!! Jadeja walks out to bat, hits a four first ball and then a six. It's raining boundaries here.
13:58 IST: OUT!! Shakib gets another one as Rahane is clean bowled. The Indian batsman failed to judge the flight of the ball and missed it entirely. India are 128-4 and lead by 427 runs.
13:48 IST: Six!! Rahane comes down the track and swats Mehedi over the deep mid-wicket boundary. He is really pressing on the accelerator now.

12:53 IST: FOUR!! Good straight drive down the ground by Pujara and gets a boundary
12:46 IST: FOUR!! Nicely played by Pujara through the third-man area. India's intentions are clear
12:44 IST: Very rarely it happens that a bowler hit Virat's helmet. Taskin is all pumped up
12:43 IST: FOUR!! Oh that was quick. It was from Kohli's helmet
12:42 IST: India definitely need time to take wickets on this pitch and I think they will look to declare by the end of day's play. May be an hour before the close
12:40 IST: The intentions of the both, Vijay and Rahul, were not wrong as India are looking to score quickly. But having said that, the execution was not right

11:20 IST: India lead by 299 runs and have decided not to enforce a follow-on
11:18 IST: OUT!!! Mushfiqur is out!!! and Ashwin gets his 250th wicket, fastest to achieve the feat. Bangladesh are all out on 388 in 127.5 overs.
11:17 IST: FOUR! You got to appreciate Mushfiqur, as a batsman. Stepped out and hit a straight boundary
11:16 IST: Mushfiqur takes a single in the second ball of the over. And Kamrul has 4 balls to face
11:15 IST: Bangladesh are 383/9 in 126 overs. Mushfiqur Rahim 122*, Kamrul Islam Rabbi 0*, need 105 runs to avoid follow-on
11:11 IST: FOUR!! Innovative shot by the captain and gets a boundary
11:10 IST: No.11 batsman Kamrul Islam Rabbi comes onto the field.
11:07 IST: OUT!!! Taskin Ahmed is caught in the slips and Jadeja gets the wicket
11:04 IST: Big shout of LBW!! Missing off-stump and Marais Erasmus unmoved
11:01 IST: FOUR!! Outside edge of the bat and Taskin gets his first boundary. This partnership is really frustrating India
11:00 IST: Bangladesh are 369/8 after 121 overs. Trail India by 318 runs. Mushfiqur Rahim 114*, Taskin Ahmed 2*
10:57 IST: REVIEW! Sound and taken by the keeper. Umpire Joel Wilson gives that out. Nooo the third umpire overturns it. Taskin survives
10:56 IST: So, the fifth bowler Ravindra Jadeja comes into the attack now
10:55 IST: SIX! He smashed it over the mid-wicket boundary for a maximum. 12 runs of the over
10:53 IST: FOUR! Dances down the track and hits it for a boundary
10:49 IST: R Ashwin comes into the attack now!! 249 wickets against his name.
10:47 IST: The skipper's hundred is keeping India wait. Mushfiqur is playing some sensible cricket here, giving only a couple of balls to the number 9 to face
10:40 IST: Hundred!!! Mushfiqur Rahim gets the 5th century and he is so happy to achieve it. Completes it with a boundary
10:30 IST: Bangladesh are 347/8 after 116 overs. Mushfiqur Rahim 95*, Taskin Ahmed 0*, trail India by 340 runs
10:21 IST: REVIEW! Peach of a delivery by Ishant Sharma and Mushfiqur tries to pull it. Gets the edge and not-out given by the umpire. Replays say that it had hit the arm-guard. "Great decision" praises Gaffaney and India now don't have anymore reviews for the rest of the innings
10:22 IST: SIX! Short ball again and Mushfiqur goes for it and hooks it for a maximum
10:20 IST: Mushfiqur Rahim is still there and he should take most of the strike now
113.5: WICKET! T Islam (10) is out, c Wriddhiman Saha b Umesh Yadav, 339/8— BCCI (@BCCI) February 12, 2017
10:18 IST: OUT!!! That's it. The short ball does it for him. Taijul Islam goes for 10 and Umesh Yadav gets his 3rd wicket
10:16 IST: FOUR!! Taijul does not look comfortable in the crease at all. His eyes were somewhere else, head on the other side. It seems, he will not survive for long
10:12 IST: Ooooh !!! Snorter of a delivery whizzes past Rahim's ear. Good bowling Ishant Sharma
10:06 IST: Ishant Sharma is standing at the gully. I think, for the first time in his career
10:05 IST: That's better from Umesh Yadav!! He should ball on the off-stump and focus to swing it from there
10:03 IST: FOUR! First boundary of the day comes from the willow of Taijul Islam. He placed it between the third slip and a gully
09:56 IST: Ishant Sharma comes into the attack now replacing Bhuvneshwar Kumar
09:45 IST: Indians have certainly maintained the ball well and the credit should be given to the fielders too for looking after it. As a result Bhuvi is making life difficult for the opponents
09:43 IST: Bhuvi is on fire!! Reversing the ball at will. The good thing is he can swing the ball both ways
09:42 IST: Umesh Yadav looks stiff!!! He is not bowling hundred per cent and his ball is not even carrying to the wicketkeeper
09:40 IST: Umesh Yadav to bowl the second over. Bangladesh are 322/7
09:37 IST: Pitched outside and the third umpire stays with the not-out decision, Taijul Islam survives!!
09:36 IST: REVIEW!! Wrapped on the pads, Bhuvneshwar appeal again. Not-out says the umpire but India takes the review here.

09:35 IST: OUT!! Bhuvi dismantles the middle stump. Brilliant from him and Mehedi Hasan's resistance ends on 51
09:32 IST: Pitch Report: "It doesn't look like an obvious result pitch. I would have liked to see the cracks much wider by now. It looks more like a day three wicket than a day four one. There is some rough but I wish it was more towards the good length spot. But, the true nature of this wicket gives Bangladesh a stronger chance for survival. It is the grass that has held the pitch together," reckons Sanjay Manjrekar in the company of Simon Doull.
09:30 IST: The players are at the ground. Bhuvneshwar Kumar to start the proceedings for India
09:20 IST: The pitch still looks good for batting. And the visitors can fancy their chances of giving a tough fight to the Indians.
09:15 IST: Bangladesh's first target would certainly be to score 166 runs more to avoid follow-on. India, on the other side will have to bowl their heart out. A lot will depend on how R Ashwin and R Jadeja bowl.
09:14 IST: The 4th day is about to start in 20 minutes time. Bangladesh are 322/6, thanks to the unbeaten 87-run partnership between captain Mushfiqur Rahim and Mehedi Raza. They still trail India by 365 runs.
09:10 IST: Hello and welcome to the live blog
Seasoned all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan and captain Mushfiqur Rahim both scored resilient half-centuries which ruined India captain Virat Kohli's plan of bowling out Bangladesh early.
A mention must also be made for teenager Mehedi Hasan, who scored his maiden half-century in Test cricket and also remained unbeaten along with Rahim.
Both Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja remained pretty ineffective on Saturday and will give it one more try on Sunday to clinch the last four Bangladeshi wickets.
