Shakib Al Hasan and Mahmudullah were the two overnight batsmen for Bangladesh and India began the day with Jadeja bowling the first over. Umesh Yadav shared the attack from the other end. Jadeja exploited the rough on the pitch.

In the fourth over of the day, a good-length delivery from Jadeja kicked off the rough and hit Shakib’s gloves and ricocheted off his thigh for a simple catch to Cheteshwar Pujara at short-leg.

India brought Ashwin late into the attack but he wasted no time in picking up a wicket. Fourth ball into the his first over, Ashwin got the wicket of Mushfiqur Rahim, who had tried four attacking shots on the first four balls.

Mushfiqur, who had shared a 56-run stand till then with Mahmudullah, mistimed a shot and threw away his wicket with a soft catch to Jadeja at mid-off. That was Ashwin’s third wicket of the second innings. Mehedi Hasan Miraz, who scored his maiden Test half century in Bangladesh’s first innings was next to go for Bangladesh. India had to wait for nearly 15 overs to get his scalp. After that, it was only a matter of time before Bangladesh were bundled out for 250 all out. Taijul Islam became the fourth batsman to fall to Ravindra Jadeja. Ashwin ended the proceedings with his own fourth scalp.
