Mushfiqur Rahim was the only player to make an impact for Bangladesh but India's bowlers were on top of their game.

09:03 hrs IST: Bangladesh have won the toss and they will bat. Virat Kohli's Indian cricket team are playing three pacers and two spinners and he said he wanted to bowl first on this green deck in Indore, which is a bit surprising.
08:56 hrs IST: The absence of Shakib Al Hasan and Tamim Iqbal was felt a little in the Twenty20 Internationals, but in the Test arena, their loss will be colossal. Bangladesh have lost experience and this will be a body blow to the side, with many expecting that going into the fifth day will be a mighty achievement. One hopes that Bangladesh can spring a surprise.
08:51 hrs IST: A warm welcome to the first day of the first Test between India and Bangladesh from Indore. This was the venue where Virat Kohli began his incredible run of scoring double tons. In 2016, he smashed his first double ton against New Zealand and now, he has seven double centuries, the most by any Indian player.
