DHAKA: India have resumed their first innings batting on Day three of the one-off Test between Bangladesh and India at Khan Shaheb Osman Ali Stadium, Fatullah on Friday.

Two openers Shikhar Dhawan and Murali Vijay are on the crease with 154 and 91 runs. India have scored 245-run after 59-over.

Earlier, rain interrupted the first day’s play while heavy rain washed out the play on the second day of the lone test match.

On Wednesday, despite having 34 overs lost due to rain interruption and bad light, India scored 239 runs with no loss at stamps on Day-1.

Shikhar Dhawan bounced back with a very aggressive unbeaten 150. Murali Vijay was also solid with his 89 not out. The pair scored their second 200-run opening partnership.

India with the advantage of bowling last on this wicket has its grip very firm on the test.

Meanwhile, met office on Thursday forecasted the bad weather accompanied by heavy rainfall is likely to continue for next three days.

The rainfall occurred as trough of low lies over North West Bay and Southwest and monsoon has advanced up to central part of Bangladesh, according to sources of met office.
