India maintains its leadership thanks to Pujara and Gill

Shubman Gill and Cheteshwar Pujara each scored hundreds in the first Test at Chattogram, giving India a dominating lead. The pair ensured that India maintained its advantage after Kuldeep Yadav claimed a five-wicket haul, which gave India a 254-run first innings lead.

Ebadot Hossain was not on the field, which caused Bangladesh to be smothered with the ball. Interestingly, after dismissing Shreyas Iyer early on the second day, he did not bowl in the first innings either. He had nonetheless entered the field to bat, but without his availability and Shakib Al Hasan's absence from the bowling assault, Bangladesh's attack appeared one-dimensional, with Taijul Islam and Khaled Ahmed sharing the new ball.

Shubman Gill, who was declared LBW, was very nearly picked up by the left-arm spinner, but the play was reversed on review as the ball was traveling down the legside. India's openers were unable to score quickly on a pitch that was still keeping low and helping the spinners, but they were able to grind it out in the beginning. However, Gill took control of the second session, scoring four boundaries in the first four overs following lunch.

Rahul was troubled by the short ball's odd bounce as Bangladesh fought courageously along. Eventually, Rahul was forced to pull down to fine leg. Each spinner had a review going against them against Gill. The third of which, with part-timer Yasir Ali losing because DRS was down, only served to feed the fury.

However, the opener was unaffected by them as he successfully utilized his feet and the sweep shot to bring up his fifth Test fifty and put on a fifty-plus stand with Pujara. Both hitters changed their strategies after the tea break. A lofted boundary to long on helped Gill reach his ton, his first ever in Test cricket, while also hitting three sixes. Soon after, when attempting to slog Mehidy Hasan, he collapsed after holing out to deep midwicket.

India continued its onslaught, though. Pujara adopted an aggressive stance at this point, not afraid to loft the spinners with his feet. In the same over that Gill was struck out, he made his intentions obvious by lofting Mehidy for a boundary and earning his second fifty of the game. He continued to boost the ante and finished off a century drought that had lasted more than three years by scoring his second fifty off just 42 balls. He helped set a goal of 512 with his first hundred in 52 innings and 19th overall, which only made matters worse for Bangladesh, whose problems were already exacerbated by a poor showing at the plate in the first innings.

Less than an hour into the third day's play, they were bowled out after adding 17 runs to their overnight total. When Kuldeep Yadav caught Ebadot Hossain down the legside, a 42-run partnership for the ninth wicket was broken, giving him his third Test five-wicket haul.

Mehidy persisted in his farming of the strike, but he could only add six more runs with the last wicket before he was out stumped by Axar Patel, giving India a massive advantage of 254 runs. The openers were unharmed until stumps in the second innings, which gave them a superior start.
