Tour game, Hyderabad, day one

After Bangladesh declared their first innings at 224 for eight following fifties from Mushfiqur Rahim and Soumya Sarkar, India A responded with a score of 91 for one in 21 overs on day one of tour game in Hyderabad.

Bangladesh won the toss and elected to bat first. Aniket Choudhary (4-24) and Chama Milind (1-26) struck in quick succession to remove Tamim Iqbal (13) and Imrul Kayes (4) respectively.

Choudhary returned back to dismiss Mominul Haque (5) cheaply but Sarkar (52) waged a fight with his 73-ball knock which had nine boundaries and a six.

Sarkar was trapped LBW by Shahbaz Nadeem (1-38) while Mahmudullah (23), who started the innings well, failed to carry on as Bangladesh were reeling at 113 for five at one stage.

Rahim (58) tried to stage a recovery and along with support from Sabbir Rahman (33) and Liton Das (23 not out) helped Bangladesh post 224 for eight before they decided to declare their innings to have a go at India A batsmen.

Abhinav Mukund (16), who was recalled in the Indian squad fell cheaply to Subashis Roy (1-11) but Priyank Panchal (40 not out) and Shreyas Iyer (29 not out) ensured India A reached 91 for one with their unbeaten 50-run stand.

At stumps, India A were trailing Bangladesh by 133 runs with nine wickets in hand.
