Rabbi is holding onto his end somehow. He has been targeted by Umesh Yadav, R Ashwin and Bhuvneshwar Kumar. He has survived 36 balls so far. Bangladesh needs them to play as many deliveries they can to draw the match. The pitch is helping the bowlers and the ball is turning square. A commendable job by Bangladesh’s lower order batsmen.

Ishant Sharma is bowling a wonderful spell today—he got the set batsman, Mahmudullah out with a short ball. Ishant generated extra bounce off the pitch. Mahmudullah could not time the pull shot as the ball hurried towards him. The ball went straight into Bhuvneshwar’s hands in deep fine leg position. Ishant almost got another wicket but India did not have any review left to question Umpire’s decision. In the next over, Ishant got an edge off Mehedi’s bat but Murali Vijay could not catch hold of it. On the other hand, Jadeja is trying to bowl into the rough, waiting for the batsman to make mistake.

Mehedi Hasan batted well in the first innings, India needs to get his wicket early on in the innings. Ishant has impressed today with his variation in length. Jadeja is bowling a tight line. Kohli hasn’t brought Bhuvenshwar Kumar into the attack yet. Jadeja has bowled a better part of the overs since morning.

Rahim got carried away as soon as Ashwin got introduced into the attack. After hitting a boundary, Rahim dances down the wicket in an attempt to score a boundary over covers, fails miserably as Jadeja takes the catch. Ashwin got his third wicket in the innings.

Rahim survived the runout, a direct hit and he would have been a goner. Next ball, SIX! First six of the innings. Ishant pitches the ball short, Rahim pulls it as the ball goes over the fence for a maximum. Four dot balls to finish the over. Wait! that last ball was a no-ball. Anyway, he finishes off his over with a dot ball.

Welcome to InUth’s coverage of India vs Bangladesh one-off Test, Day 5. We will be bringing you the live action from Hyderabad Test as India inch closer to another win. India needs 7 wickets to wrap up the proceedings and register yet another series win. Bangladesh needs 356 runs to win the Test or to play out the whole day to draw it. However, it seems like Bangladesh are likely to try for a draw.

Shakib Al Hasan and Mahmudullah are currently batting, the duo has put on 28 runs for the fourth wicket yet. It will be a long day for Bangladesh batsmen as Virat Kohli’s tactic would be to attack with full force. Shakib scored 82 in the first innings.

The visitors have to more in-form batsmen coming up after the current duo. Skipper Mushfiqur Rahim scored his 5th century in the first innings. Rahim held onto his end when wickets were falling. He will be expected to take control of the situation if a wicket falls.

Bangladesh’s young all-rounder Mehedi Hasan too scored his maiden fifty in first innings. Hasan’s services too will be needed as the game proceeds on Day 5.

Indian spinners Ashwin and Jadeja will try to take advantage of the pitch conditions. They will try to bowl into the rough to get uneven bounce and turn. Ashwin might add another five-wicket haul to his name the way he bowled on Day 5.

Indian seamers will try to take as many wickets they can in the first session. Bhuvneshwar Kumar will swing the ball late like he did on Day 4 to get Mehedi Hasan’s wicket. Umesh Yadav and Ishant Sharma will try to bang the ball short of length in order to trouble the batsmen with uneven bounce. They will target the left-handers by coming round the wicket.
