Skipper Mushfiqur Rahim and all-rounder Mehedi Hasan have put on 87 runs for the seventh wicket till now. They were able to rescue their team in the third session despite Indian bowlers getting turn and bounce from the wicket.

As far as India’s chances are concerned, they need to get the first innings wrapped up within the first two sessions on Day 4. India will look to bowl the visitors out and enforce follow on. The pitch has started to show it’s two colours. There is enough turn and bounce on the wicket as we saw in the last session of Day 3.
Ravichandran Ashwin is still looking for his 250th wicket to become the fastest in Tests to reach the feat. Ashwin might prove lethal on Day 4 if the pitch starts to wear off a little more. He will be accompanied by Ravindra Jadeja who created problems for Bangladesh batsmen on Day 4 as well.

India will try to bring on Umesh Yadav early on in the first session as he has been bowling with guile and pace. It will be a tough day for Bangladesh batsmen. We will have to find out whether Rahim-Hasan hold ground or give up easy.
