Ishant Sharma in the record books
Bangladesh skipper Mominul Haque won the toss and elected to bat first. However, the tourists have not had a good start to their innings as they have already lost their opener four wickets.
Despite playing carefully in the first six overs, the Bangladesh batsmen failed to sustain a solid against the Indian pace attack.
Ishant first dismissed Imrul Kayes and became the first Indian to pick a wicket with the pink ball. Umesh Yadav then later chipped in with a couple of wickets dismissing Mominul Haque and Mohammad Mithun. Mohammed Shami then later picked up the wicket of Mushfiqur Rahim to dismantle the opposition altogether.
