Ishant bags five as India dominate against Bangladesh at Eden

Kolkata, Nov 22 (UNI) Ishant Sharma ripped apart Bangladesh batting lineup as India
end the first day of maiden Pink ball day-night test in India on the driver's seat with a
lead of 68 runs at Eden Gardens here today.
Put to bat first Bangladesh were bundled for a paltry 106 runs as Ishant became
the first player to grab a five-wicket haul in day-night test.
While batting India rode on Virat Kohli and Cheteswar Pujara half-centuries to end
the day on 174/3 in 46 overs.
Mayank Agarwal went back early on 14 and Rohit Sharma also got out for just 21
which reduced India to 43/2.
After that skipper Kohli and Pujara steadied the ship with a 94-run partnership till
the latter one became Ebadat Hossain's victim on 55.
Kohli continued his fluent innings to stay unbeaten on 59 along with Ajinkya
Rahane (23).
Earlier, Indian pace trio wreaked havoc to bundle the visitors for just 106 runs in
30.3 overs in the first innings.
Bangladesh batters looked helpless as Ishant Sharma topped the chart with a
five-wicket haul while Umesh Yadav bagged 3 wickets and Mohammed Shami picked
up 2.
“I used to bowl outswingers to left-handers. I needed to add variation to become more
effective. So in this match, Imrul Kayes’s dismissal was with that delivery and the two
right-handers’ too. The idea is to straighten the ball, the right-hander thinks that it might
come in but it just holds the line,” explained Ishant after match.
Ishant opened Indian pace attack with his fiery bowling and bagged a maiden. While
the first run of the historic Pink ball test came from Shadman Islam's bat off Umesh
Yadav's second ball in the second over.
Ishant came back to be more lethal in his second over as Islam's bat almost kissed
the ball twice.
However Shadman replied with a couple of boundaries off Umesh Yadav in the next
over to help Bangladesh post 13 for no loss in 4 overs. A decent start in test cricket.
Ishant gave India the first breakthrough by removing Bangladesh opener Imrul Kayes
on 4 to reduce the visitors to 16/1.
After that Bangladesh's 4 batters completely surrendered in front of Indian pace trio as
they were reduced to 38/5 in just 14.2 overs.
Mominul Haque and Md. Mithun went back without scoring any runs off Yadav while
Mohammed Shami rattled experienced Bangladesh batter Mushfiqur Rahim's stumps
who also couldn't open scoring.
Shadman who fought a lone battle went back after Wriddhiman Saha caught him off
Ishant on 29.
Bangladesh's struggle against Indian pace attack continued as Ishant sent Mahmudullah
(6) back too.
“You look at Ishant from where he was when he started and look at him now. This only
comes with experience. The way he adjusted the lengths on this track was commendable
and something which our seamers can also learn,” said Bangladesh head coach Russell
Domingo praising Ishant.
Litton Das who was looking in good form got hit on the head off Shami's bouncer had
to leave the field on 24 while his replacement Mehidy Hasan Miraz (8) became Ishant's
another victim.
Total 9 out of twelve players went back for single digit score among which 3 top order
batters couldn't open scoring in front of India's lethal pace attack.
