Tomorrow is the fourth day of the Mirpur Test being played between India and Bangladesh.
India need 100 runs to win, 6 wickets in hand
new Delhi. When the Indian cricket team takes the field against Bangladesh on the fourth day of the Mirpur Test on Sunday, the intention will be to avoid an embarrassing record. The Indian team has never lost a match against Bangladesh in Test cricket so far. On the third day of the match, the hosts were bundled out for just 231 runs in the second innings. Chasing the target of 145 runs for victory, India had lost 4 wickets for 45 runs by the end of the day’s play.
The two-match Test series being played between India and Bangladesh has reached an exciting turn. In the last session on the third day of the last Test match, as the Indian top order faltered and 4 wickets fell one after the other, it raised concerns. The stalwarts like KL Rahul, Shubman Gill, Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat Kohli have returned and now the team has to win by scoring 100 runs in the fourth day’s play. The score is not big but the history is intimidating. Big names like Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid and Sourav Ganguly could not make 100 and Team India got defeated by England at their home.

The Indian team was able to score only 279 runs in the first innings and the English team, which scored 191 runs in the second innings, set a target of 313 runs to win.
