In reply to India’s first innings total of 404, Bangladesh were restricted to just 150 runs.

Me and Ash bhai (R Ashwin) were initially looking at first innings score of 360 but as time passed, batting became easier so we looked at a 400-run total,” stated the spinner.

The Indian team will be looking to bowl out Bangladesh in the first two sessions on Day 4. However, Bangladesh are batting at 119/0 at lunch on Day 4.
