India leaps on Bangladesh on Day1 in Pink Ball Test as Kohli wins hearts

India ended the first day of their first-ever pink-ball Test at Eden Gardens in Kolkata on Friday at 174/3, leading Bangladesh by 68 runs. India dismissed Bangladesh for 106 in 30.3 overs, with fast bowlers taking all the 10 wickets. Team India captain Virat Kohli became the fastest captain to score 5,000 runs in Test cricket, taking 86 innings.

 
Ishanth Sharma had a five-wicket haul after a very long time. Later, Bangladesh breathed fire as Indian Opener fell early. But seasoned campaigners Kohli and Pujara put things back on track and scored half-centuries. In the end of day’s play, Pujara nicked one to slip in Ebadat’s bowling and the vice Captain joined the skipper to score 20 odd runs in wrist pace.
 
An incident happened in the middle of the day where the Indian team physiotherapist Nitin Patel came onto the field to attend to Bangladeshi batsman Mohammad Nayeem after he was stuck on the helmet by a Mohammad Shami delivery. Umpire Joel Wilson, after a chat with Indian team skipper Kohli, seen calling over Patel. Concussion tests were done on the batsman, after which Nayeem gave a thumbs-up sign. Kohli was the one who insisted on their Physio to attend the injured Nayeem and took leaps of praises all over Twitter.
