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.

Earlier in the day, Bangladesh got off to a dismal start with the bat as they lost their opening five wickets with just 38 runs on the board.

Shadman Islam (29), Imrul Kayes (4), Mominul Haque (0), Mohammad Mithun (0) and Mushfiqur Rahim (0) failed to stay at the crease for a long time, with the Tigers getting dismissed in 30.3 overs.

Here's how Twitter reacted to the landmark day-night Test:
