India makes headway on Day 3

India makes headway on Day 3

The Indian spinners took the Dhaka Test by the scruff of the neck, leaving the home team four down and down by 16 runs at lunch. R Ashwin, Mohammed Siraj, Jaydev Unadkat, and Axar Patel of India put together a dangerous bowling performance that left Bangladesh reeling after starting the morning session with Bangladesh on 7 for 0 and hoping to erase India's advantage.

Ashwin got things going against the two left-handed openers, Zakir Hasan and Najmul Hossain Shanto, and quickly picked up a wicket. In the first over of the day, India's top spinner disturbed Najmul twice thanks to the turn and bounce that was there. Najmul managed to get away the first time, costing India a review for LBW, but he wasn't as fortunate the second time around as he was caught with his leg in the trap.

With a spring in his step, Siraj made his way to the other end and believed he had the impressive Zakir out LBW in his first over of the day. He persuaded KL Rahul to take a review after he was forced to do so, which caused India to burn their second review so quickly since it was determined that the ball had been placed much outside the off stump. A few overs later, Mominul Haque was dismissed by Siraj with a length ball that was slanted into the left-hander and slightly straightened. Siraj had shifted sides to go around the stumps. Due to Mominul's hesitant forward motion, Rishabh Pant received the delivery feathered.

Before bringing on Unadkat for the assault, Rahul handed Umesh Yadav a brief spell on either side of the beverage break. The switch paid off right away as Shakib Al Hasan chipped a left-length armer's ball straight to Shubman Gill at cover to trudge back for 13. Rahul was right on target with a subsequent bowling substitution that he made, giving Ashwin a respite after an intense 11-over spell to bring on Axar, who continued launching variations and prevented Mushfiqur Rahim from settling into a pattern against him.

Axar threw a few while moving outside the crease, forcing the ball to deflect sharply from Mushfiqur's bat while putting up a front foot defense, and he also slipped in the occasional slider that found its way inside to the right-hander. Mushfiqur was hit on the front pad while rooted to the crease, and one of these sliders had his name on it. Rahim's review had no impact on the umpire raising his hand; the result stood. Bangladesh left for lunch at 71 for 4, remaining behind India's advantage from Day 2.
