#01:46 pm: OUT! Umesh Yadav takes a fifer as India register historic win in their maiden Pink Ball Test. With this, the men in blue also completed the series rout.
#01:42 pm: It's become an interesting contest between Umesh Yadav and Ishant Sharma. Both have four wickets to their name and with injured Mahmudullah unlikely to come for bat, only one of them can take fifer here. Ishant have already taken a fifer in the first innings, and would like to convert it into a 10 wicket haul in the match. Umesh, on the other hand, too would like to take a fifer. Let's see who takes it.
#01:40 pm: OUT! Umesh Yadav removes Mushfiqur Rahim who tried to go over the cover for a big hit. This means we are very close to the result and we all know it. Abu Jayed is the new man in. Score after 40 overs: BAN 189-8; Al-Amin 16 (14), Abu Jayed 1 (1)
#01:34 pm: FOUR more! After reverse sweep, Mushfiqur Rahim brings out his traditional sweep this time.
#01:32 pm: FOUR! Here comes the reverse sweep. We have seen Rahim doing this many times in the past. Sweep is his favourite. He wants to score as many runs as he can and force India to bat again.
#01:30 pm: India intorduces spin. A rare sight in this game. Ravindra Jadeja comes into the attack. Can he get rid of stubborn Rahim?
#01:25 pm: FOUR! Leg byes. Runs are coming, Bangladesh would not mind whether they are coming from bat or extras.
#01:20 pm: Rahim and Al-Amin will be the key if Bangladesh want to force India to bat again. They are still 70 runs short of India's first innings lead with only three wickets in hand. Score after 37 overs: BAN 167-7; Rahim 66 (88) Al-Amin4(5)
#01:15 pm: Mushfiqur Rahim is the only one putting a fight here. Bangladesh is definitely misisng the services of Shakib, who got banned days before their India tour.
#01:10 pm: OUT! Umesh Yadav provides India with an early breaktrough. Ebadat Hossain backed away in fear of a bumper and gave away an easy catch to Kohli. India is three wickets away from series win.
01:05 pm: Ishant Sharma started with two slips and a gully and bowled a maiden first over.
#01:00 pm: Umesh Yadav will resume Ebadat Hossain will face the first ball of the day three. Three slips and a gully for Hossain as Umesh is hoping for an edge.
