India vs Bangladesh 2nd Test: IND 19/0; Early stumps called due to poor light

The opening day of the second Test comes to an end earlier than expected with the umpires deciding to call the players back to the pavilion due to the rapidly fading light. The day belonged to KL Rahul and Co, with the bowlers helping restrict the Bangla Tigers to 227 inside 73.5 overs.

Bowling by Bangladesh skipper Shakib turned out to be the final over of the day, in which he successfully appeals for leg-before against his Indian counterpart Rahul in the second delivery, and the latter reviews it, overturning the on-field umpire’s decision after the ball is found to be missing leg.

The main headline-grabber of the day was Jaydev Unadkat, who was making his return to Test cricket with Team India after 12 long years. While Unadkat picked two wickets, Mominul Haque (84) was Bangladesh’s top performer with the bat.

At stumps on Day 1, India were 19/0 after eight overs, trailing the hosts by 208 runs, with KL Rahul (3) and Shubman Gill (14) in the middle.
