Spin twins to test Bangladesh's batsmen

One game doesn't overshadow two years of hard work Virat Kohli on picking Ajinkya Rahane over Karun Nair

Hello and welcome to our Live coverage of the Day 3 of the one-off Test between India and Bangladesh in Hyderabad.

If after two days of being toyed by the Indian batsmen Bangladesh thought now was their turn to make amends with the bat, so far that objective hasn't quite progressed as well as they'd have expected. Having let Umesh bowl three overs from the Shivlal Yadav end, he switched him to the other end, the VVS Laxman end, probably in the hope of getting some reverse swing. Another day, another game, but the same intensity, now synonymous with the run-machine, as Kohli took the Bangladesh bowling by the scruff of the neck.

Rahane completed his 10th test half-century off 73 balls, while Kohli accumulated the most test runs for an Indian batsman in a season, beating Virender Sehwag's record of 1105 runs in 2004-05.

Vijay, who survived a run-out chance on 35, smashed twelve fours and a six during his 160-ball stay before being bowled by Taijul early in the final session.

Bangladesh: Mushfiqur Rahim (capt, wk), Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, Mominul Haque, Mahmudullah, Shakib Al Hasan, Sabbir Rahman, Mehedi Hasan, Taskin Ahmed, Kamrul Islam Rabbi, Liton Das, Mosaddek Hossain, Shafiul Islam, Subashis Roy, Taijul Islam.

It proved momentary respite, though, as Kohli took the attack to spinners and seamers alike alongside Rahane, included in place of Karun Nair, who was omitted despite his triple century against England in India's last Test.

He along with Rahane, added 222 runs in a little under 50 overs with Bangladesh by then being out-batted by the hosts. It was only poetic justice that Saha brought up his hundred with a lovely six. But that he did not hit a six, or gorge himself on boundaries did not slow his innings down; Kohli ended with a strike rate of over 80 (82.92 to be precise), built on 67 singles, 19 twos and a three. India had to use a review to overturn the umpire's decision.

Instead, they chose to field five bowlers, including Shakib Al Hasan, and as a result Taijul got his first game since the second Test against England in Mirpur. Since a positive outcome is out of question for the visitors, the least that can be expected is that their batsmen show some gumption.
