Indian bowlers have the runs to back them up and skipper Virat Kohli will not be afraid to give his slow bowlers a longer rope and purchase wickets on a wicket that is still excellent for batting. For Bangladesh, temperament will be key.
Earlier, five of India’s top six batsmen registered 80-plus scores as the hosts became the first team to post 600-plus totals in three consecutive Tests.
Skipper Virat Kohli led by example, hitting 204 to follow his double centuries against West Indies, New Zealand and England in the last seven months.
