Apart from Mayank Agarwal's batting masterclass, Ajinkya Rahane and Cheteshwar Pujara also scored fifties.
Bangladesh were in the game initially on Day 2 when they broke the 91-run stand between Mayank Agarwal and Cheteshwar Pujara by removing the latter for 54.
A couple of overs later, Virat Kohli was trapped in front of the stumps for a second-ball duck. India's vice-captain, Ajinkya Rahane then joined Mayank Agarwal in the middle and took India's lead past 150.
