Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara scored half-centuries to help India lead Bangladesh by 68 runs at stumps on Day 1 of the historic day-night Test at Eden Gardens in Kolkata. Pujara completed his 24th Test fifty, while Kohli smahsed his 23rd Test half-century. Pujara couldn't see the end of day's play as he got out on 55 but Kohli remained unbeaten on 59 runs. India vice-skipper Ajinkya Rahane was not out on 23 off 22 balls. India lost their openers Rohit Sharma and Mayank Agarwal cheaply. Mayank Agarwal was the first wicket to fall for India as he was dismissed by Al-Amin Hossain for 14 after India began their innings after bowling Bangladesh out for 106. Rohit was dismissed soon after tea break as Ebadat Hossain deceived him with a beautiful delivery and ended his innings when he was on 21. Earlier, Indian fast bowling trio of Ishant Sharma, Umesh Yadav and Mohammed Shami wreaked havoc on Bangladesh in the first two sessions. Ishant Sharma leading India's domination with the ball claimed his 10th five-wicket haul in Test cricket. Umesh Yadav picked up three wickets while Mohammed Shami dismissed two batsmen.
