The only Test between India and Bangladesh in Fatullah looks likely to end in a draw as rain continued to play spoilsport on day 3 of the Test match. India ended the day 3 on 462-6 at stumps when rained ended the day at tea.

Earlier in the morning starting from a score of 239-0, the Indian batsmen continued the good work done by the openers and piled up the runs on the board with a possibility of an overnight declaration. Dhawan, who resumed his innings from 150, was the first to go for 173 when he offered Shakib Al Hasan a catch off his own bowling. Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli departed in quick succession as they were castled by Shakib and Jubair Hossain respectively. Murali Vijay stayed firm and scored his sixth Test century and in the company of Ajinkya Rahane, he put on 114 before he was dismissed by Shakib for 150 courtesy a blunder by umpire Kumar Dharmasena. Soon, Jubair accounted for Wriddhiman Saha for 6.


Rahane looked classy throughout his innings as he played some fluent shots in his 103 ball 98 which included 14 shots to the fence. But his quest for first century in the sub-continent was dashed when he was bowled by Shakib. Shakib was the pick of the Bangladesh bowlers with figures of 4-105 in 24.3 overs.

The match has already lost an entire day’s play and a session each on the either side of day 2. With rain being forecasted for the fourth and fifth day, the match has high chances of ending in a draw.

Brief Scores: India 462-6 (Murali Vijay 150, Shikhar Dhawan 173, Ajinkya RAhane 98, Shakib Al HAsan 4-105) vs Bangladesh.
