While Bangladesh's bowlers took a pounding at the hands of Mayank Agarwal in Indore, Abu Jayed stood tall and left his mark. "The bowling attack was challenging". Wherever you play, you get that extra breeze in the evening.

In other significant movements for India after they secured a 1-0 lead in the two-Test series, all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has advanced four slots to reach joint-35th position among batsmen while fast bowlers Ishant Sharma (20th) and Umesh Yadav (22nd) have moved up one slot each. More often than not, they allowed the tail to wag a bit more often than they should have which cost India the series which, in terms of raw results, looked completely one sided towards England.

The 51-year-old former batsman, who scored 145 in Bangladesh's maiden Test in 2000 in Dhaka against India, said India is emerging as a role model in world cricket. Particularly as they were also to begin the World Championship of Test cricket. "That´s why you see the hunger", said Rathour.

India was instrumental in bringing Bangladesh to the Test arena 19 years ago and now the neigbouring country was convinced by newly-elected BCCI president Sourav Ganguly to play it's first ever pink ball Test here from November 22-26. When Nathan Lyon nicked Ishant Sharma into the gloves of Rishabh Pant at Melbourne Cricket Ground, India not just created history of beating the Aussies in a Test series for the first time but earned themselves tremendous self belief. The team that will play better will go on to win.

"We remember the 2001 epic Test between India and Australia at the Eden and now this upcoming Day/Night Test will be another milestone in the evolving format". Give him the yellow ball... give him the red ball... he's going to be the leader of the attack.

This is clearly not the first time we have heard about anything about ByteDance's plans to launch a music subscription service. In fact, it will be fair to say that India has indeed been a driving force behind TikTok and ByteDance's global success.

"Dada has sent a nice invitation".

"I spoke with (Mohammed) Shami bhai yesterday (Saturday)". The take home of that was that this Indian team has a very different approach, one of attack and strategic planning.

"Most teams from the subcontinent face the real test when they travel overseas, except the current Indian side as they have all bases covered".

"I don't think we will face more swing than we did today", Mominul declared. "I hope Bangladesh bounce back in this Test". First of all, Bangladesh are missing two of their best players (Shakib-al Hasan and Tamim Iqbal) and then they are up against an Indian side that's very, very good...
