India decided to bat for the second time in the match and their goal, to set a mammoth target ahead of Bangladesh, is achieved. Bangladesh struck early but failed to restrict Indians to score rapid runs. They have put 158 runs on the board in this session over a rate of 5.

First fifteen minutes of this session was joyous in Bangladesh perspective. Taskin sent back both openers in similar fashion. Both balls were going short and little wider; both batsmen tried to cut hard and edged to Mushfiq. Virat Kohli came to the crease after that and as usual he played majestically to score quick runs. Shakib grabbed two wickets after that including the important wicket of Kohli.

India declared their innings on 159 runs and set a huge target of 459 runs ahead of Bangladesh. Bangladesh have to bat four intact sessions to save this test match.
