It looked like India's day, but Bangladesh fought back strongly to finish the day with an 89-run deficit. Despite losing a flurry of wickets early on and finding themselves at 13-4, they rallied through Mahmudullah and Mushfiqur Rahim, whose counter-attacking partnership steadied the ship for the visitors. Mushfiqur ended the day unbeaten at 59 and will have to keep up his resilience on Sunday. Ishant Sharma finished the day with four wickets - nine in the match- while Umesh claimed two. Earlier in the day, Virat Kohli scored yet another century - his 70th international ton - and Ajinkya Rahane notched his fourth consecutive 50-plus score as India declared with a 241-run lead.

    Thank you for joining us!

    It has been an entertaining day of Test cricket. Kohli and Rahane dominated the first session, with the former reaching his century. Then Bangladesh cleaned up the tail. And then India cleaned up Bangladesh's top order before Mushfiqur put up a resilient fight.

    Join us tomorrow for more twists and turns in this historic Test match. Thank you and goodnight!

    And bangs in a bouncer straight up

    Mushfiqur survives

    Yep, that was hitting the glove. He knew he had hit it and he was very confident of not being out. The decision has been overturned
  • 20:19 (IST)Nov 23, 2019

    Mushfiqur Rahim given out LBW but he appeals

    Full and straight and Taijul nudges it off his pads for a boundary at square leg

    Taijul Islam the new man in

    Nayeem Hassan's concussion substitute is the new man in. Mahmudullah still not in
  • 19:59 (IST)Nov 23, 2019

    Will Mahmudullah return?

    After the 50-run stand between Mushfiqur and Mehidy comes to an end, we will have to wait and see if Mahmudullah comes back to resume his partnership with the Mushfiqur or if it will be a new batsman
  • 19:57 (IST)Nov 23, 2019

    Ishant to Mehidy, OUT

    Full on middle and Mushfiqur trickles it down to fine leg where Shami saves the boundary
  • 19:48 (IST)Nov 23, 2019

    Shami to Mehidy, 6 runs

    What was that? Shami went short, and angling into him. Mehidy has a swipe at it and it takes the leading edge and goes for a six to third man. Everyone looks bewildered
  • 19:46 (IST)Nov 23, 2019

    Shami from around the wicket now

    More short stuff incoming?
  • 19:44 (IST)Nov 23, 2019

    Shami back

    And Mushfiqur greets him with a gorgeous cover drive that races away to the boundary. Classy shot!
  • 19:39 (IST)Nov 23, 2019

    Ashwin to Mehidy, DROPPED

    Ajinkya Rahane dropped a handful of chances in Indore and he has dropped one here. Ashwin almost made an instant impact!

  • 19:33 (IST)Nov 23, 2019

    Shami to Mehidy, 4 byes

    Another short ball flies down leg. This one is given wide too, so that will be five more runs for Bangladesh.

    100 up for them. They still trail by 138 runs though and have it all to do.
  • 19:29 (IST)Nov 23, 2019

    Back-to-back boundaries for Mushfiqur

    This time it is full and wide and Mushfiqur produces a gorgeous cover drive

    Wide delivery again and Mehidy punches through covers for a boundary
  • 19:22 (IST)Nov 23, 2019

    Shami to Mahidy, beauty!

    Beats his defensive prod with a length ball outside off. Almost nicked it!
  • 19:19 (IST)Nov 23, 2019

    Mahmudullah has retired hurt

    Mahmudullah will have to walk off for the moment. That's a massive blow for Bangladesh. The partnership was looking good and now they will have to rely on Mehidy Hasan, Liton Das' concussion sub, to keep the fightback going against India's hungry pace attack
  • 19:14 (IST)Nov 23, 2019

    Physio looking at Mahmudullah

    Looks like Mahmudullah has a hamstring problem
  • 19:12 (IST)Nov 23, 2019

    Umesh to Mahmudullah, 4 runs

    Back of a length outside off and Mahmudullah flays a pull through midwicket
  • 19:10 (IST)Nov 23, 2019

    He is safe

    He was well inside the line when the ball hit the stumps. Great throw, though
  • 19:09 (IST)Nov 23, 2019

    DIRECT HIT

    Mayank thinks he has his man. This has gone to the third umpire
  • 19:05 (IST)Nov 23, 2019

    Umesh to Mushfiqur, 4 runs

    Wide outside off and Mushfiqur glides it down to the third man boundary. Good batting

    Mushfiqur stays on

    There was an inside edge there and Bangladesh keep their review
  • 19:03 (IST)Nov 23, 2019

    Umesh to Mushfiqur, given out but Bangladesh review

    Umesh was confident of an LBW and so was the umpire, but Mushfiqur reviews as soon as he reaches the crease while taking a run
