I think decision to NOT enforce follow-in is correct. Gives bowlers some respite. But Kohli will also have to time declaration judiciously

WICKET! Ashwin strikes down Bangla Captain Rahim to bundle up the visitors for just 388. With this Ashwin becomes the fastest bowler to scalp 250 Test wicket. India doesn’t go for a follow-on, they will bat.
Mushfiqur Rahim c Saha b Ashwin 127 (262b)
Over 125 | Score 378/8 | (Mushfiqur 117*, Kamrul 0*)
As soon as it felt that the Bangla Tigers are building in on momentum, Jadeja’s clever spell semds back Taskin Ahmed for just 8. Visitors now just have a wicket in their pocket till they get bundled up.
WICKET! Edged and caught. Taskin (8) sent back to the pavilion by Jadeja
Taskin Ahmed c Rahane b Jadeja 8 (35b)
Over 120 | Score 368/8 | (Mushfiqur 114*, Taskin 1*)
Yesterday he became the fourth Bangladeshi batsman to reach the 3000-run mark and today he came up with his century. Mushfiqur Rahim is taking it all to keep Bangladesh at strike. A much needed century by the captain can bring some hope to the visitors who just have two wickets remaining. India now brings in spin attack with Ashwin in the 120th over, but Rahim strikes his last two deliveries for a boundary.
The skipper shows his skill, temperament and patience to perfection. Wonderful hundred under tremendous pressure.#BANvIND pic.twitter.com/zeuUroXbZC

CENTURY! Captain Mushfiqur Rahim scores his 5th Test hundred. Score stands 352/8
Captain’s knock by Mushfiqur. Gritty century, full of character and some classy strokes.

Bangladesh seem to be struggling against the pace attack of Ishant and Yadav. Their continuous hammering with short deliveries has finally borne fruit with the departure of Taijul Islam by Umesh Yadav. Rahim too was undergoing a similar treatment, but had a narrow escape when the third umpire denied India’s DRS.
WICKET! Umesh Yadav sends back Taijul Islam (10).
Taijul Islam c Saha b Yadav 10 (38b)
Over 112 | Score 333/7 | (Mushfiqur 85*, Taijul 6*)
Bangladesh is off to a slow and anxious start. After the initial blow of a much predicted wicket, Mushfiqur is playing with caution to keep Bangla at crease. Umesh too, kicks off with his reverse swing, adding on to the visitor’s concern. Fans also got to see a glimpse of Murali Vijay’s shadow batting during the over change.
Over 107 | Score 325/7 | (Mushfiqur 82*, Taijul 1*)
Bhuvneshwar Kumar got India off to a superb start by dismissing Mehedi Hasan in the first over of the innings. After bowling three good balls, Bhuvi swung one into the batsman to knock off his stumps. Superb bowling. Mehedi and Mushfiqur added 87 runs for the seventh-wicket partnership. Taijul Islam is the next man in. All hopes are now on Mushfiqur and he will have to play a big knock to resurrect the innings for his team.
What to expect on the penultimate day:
India still have a lead of 365 runs, and what Virat Kohli & Co need is one wicket, preferably Mushfiqur Rahim, to run through the tail.
India will target to bowl out Bangladesh in the morning session itself to force a result. A healthy first innings lead will allow Indian batsmen to go for broke in a top which has so far shown no signs of demons in it.
If it happens so, bowlers will feast on the final day. Remember what India did against England in the Chennai Test.
For Bangladesh, two good sessions tomorrow will give them hope for a draw. But considering how they conspired against themselves last month to lose a match after scoring 595/8d, there’s no guarantee that they will save the match.
Day 3 Recap:
Indian bowlers faced dogged resistance from Bangladesh middle-order led by captain Rahim, who hit a defiant 81.
Premier all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan’s attacking 82 also contributed to Bangladesh’s fightback. At close of play, Rahim was ably supported by Mehedi Hasan Miraz, who was batting solidly batting on 51.
However, the visitors still trail India by 365 runs after the hosts declared at 687 for six on Friday.
Umesh Yadav (2/72 in 18 overs) was India’s best bowler on display but spin twins Ravichandran Ashwin (1/77 in 24 overs) and Ravindra Jadeja (1/60 in 29 overs) didn’t look incisive despite being economical on a track that is still pretty good for batting. Ashwin infact was hit for 12 boundaries.
