The Indian Cricket Team decided to bat first, which led to a chaotic first day. The Men in Blue scored 278 runs while taking 6 wickets in the process. The outstanding batsman was Cheteshwar Pujara, who scored 90 runs in 203 balls while hitting 11 fours. As the pitch had an inconsistent bounce and turn, Pujara displayed tremendous tenacity.

Pujara received excellent help from Shreyas Iyer, who struck an unbeaten 82 runs in 169 balls while slamming 10 boundaries. Shreyas Iyer was observed spinning the hit while using his feet. The two made bowlers work very hard during their 149-run partnership.

Wasim Jaffer on Cheteshwar Pujara

Wasim Jaffer was seen interacting with ESPNcricinfo and was asked about Cheteshwar Pujara. “That was a standard, typical Pujara innings. Wickets were falling from the other end and he was soaking all the pressure up by taking his time and anything loose, he was scoring runs on it. It’s a kind of standard Pujara innings. He was quite unfortunate and would feel unlucky to miss out on a very good hundred,” said Wasim Jaffer.

“On top of that, Test Cricket is not being played regularly. He has been in and out, he has played county cricket and he has played a little bit for Saurashtra but coming straight into his groove that’s Cheteshwar Pujara. getting into his groove. I am happy for him, he did all the hard yards, took his time early on, played spinners really well.” he added.

Crucial Phase for India

Shreyas Iyer is motivated to increase the team’s lead by pushing the first innings score above 350. As Bangladesh is expected to finish the batting in the first hour, Ashwin and Shreyas would need to be on their toes. As the pitch has started to get worse, it would be intriguing to see if Shreyas loses control.

As Taijul Hasan has taken 3 wickets and has been quite consistent with his line and length, Bangladesh will most likely give him a lengthy stint once more. It won’t be inaccurate to state that the outcome of the first Test Match will be decided during the morning session.
