Rain-hit Day-1 play resumes

DHAKA: The first day’s play of the one-off Test between India and Bangladesh resumed in afternoon as rain halted it before the lunch break at Khan Shaheb Osman Ali Stadium in Fatullah of Narayanganj on Wednesday.

Shikhar Dhawan (74 runs off 71) and Murali Vijay (33 runs off 70) resumed their bating from 107-run for no loss in 23.3 overs.

Earlier, Indian captain Virat Kohli won the toss and decided to bat first. The match kicked off at 10:00am local time.

Liton Kumar Das became the 77th test debutant for Bangladesh.

If India loses to Bangladesh, they will drop to seventh in the ICC Test rankings, with 95 points.

If the match is drawn, India will drop to 97 points but will stay above England and Pakistan. Victory will keep them at No. 3.

India have not visited Bangladesh since 2010. In seven Tests in Bangladesh, India have won six and drawn one.
