Kolkata: India ended day one of the ongoing day-night Test against Bangladesh at the score of 174/3 at the Eden Gardens. India currently have a lead of 68 runs over the visitors.

After bundling out Bangladesh for 106, India got off to a steady start as openers Rohit Sharma and Mayank Agarwal put on 25 runs inside five overs, but their vigil at the crease was ended by Al-Amin Hossain as he dismissed Agarwal (14).

As soon as the play started after the tea break, Rohit (21) was adjudged leg-before-wicket on the delivery bowled by Ebadat Hossain, reducing India to 43/2 in the 13th over.

Skipper Virat Kohli then joined Cheteshwar Pujara in the middle and the duo kept Bangladesh bowlers at bay as they kept on moving the scoreboard at a rapid pace. In the ongoing match, Kohli also went past the 5000-run mark as the skipper of the side.
