The final session of the match gets underway. How long will India A bat? 

It is unlikely that the match will go on till  5 PM as the teams have the option of ending the match before the start of the final hour ie. at 3:30 PM IST.

It’s tea on day 2. India A end the session with 390 runs on the board for the loss of 7 wickets. Yet another session in which the India A batsmen have dominated the Bangladeshi bowlers. In spite of getting three quick wickets, the bowlers failed to capitalise and let Saini and Vijay Shankar take charge. Nitin Saini is batting on 56 off 61 balls while Vijay Shankar is unbeaten on 48 off 53 balls. 

Fifty! Haryana batsman Nitin Saini reaches his fifty off just 56 balls. India A are just cruising ahead. Vijay Shankar is playing a supporting role as the TN all-rounder is batting on 42. India A 381/7.

India’s lead goes past 100 as Vijay Shankar and Nitin Saini continue to frustrate the Bangladeshi bowlers. Saini is batting on 37 while Vijay Shankar is batting on 21. India A 344/7 after 74 overs.

300 up for India A. Is declaration round the corner?

Hardik Pandya b Taijul Islam 7

Another one bites the dust! Hardik Pandya’s short stay at the crease comes to an end. Taijul Islam traps him plumb in front of the stumps for 7. Nitin Saini, the 2nd highest run-scorer of 2016/17 Ranji Trophy walks out to bat at No.9 for India A with the score card reading 287/7.

Ishan Kishan st Imrul Kayes b Taijul Islam 11

OUT!  Yet another wicket falls. This time, it was Kishan, who tried to step out of his crease and smash Taijul out of the park just to see the bails dislodged by the wicketkeeper. He made 11 before getting out. Vijay Shankar is the new batsman. India A 286/6.

Ishank Jaggi c and b Subhashis Roy 23

OUT! Roy strikes again. Ishank Jaggi, who was struggling to get going, was caught and bowled by Subhashis Roy for 23. India A are 276/5 with the crowd favourite Hardik Pandya walking out to bat. 

Rishabh Pant c Shafiul Islam b Subhashis Roy 19

OUT! Pant departs for 19 off just 11 balls with 2 fours and one six. He tried to hit smash Subhashis Roy out of the park and ended up offering Shafiul Islam an easy catch at the fine-leg fence. Ishan Kishan is the new batsman in. India A  269-4 in 55 overs.

250 up for India A. 

The second session got underway and as expected, Priyank Panchal retires out for 103. Rishabh Pant is the new batsman in.

Can the visitors strike back? Will Panchal retire out and allow the crowd favourite Hardik Pandya to bat? We will find out at the start of the second session that will start in 30 minutes.

That’s it. Lunch being taken at Secunderabad. Priyank Panchal and Shreyas Iyer scored centuries in the first session and took the game away from the visitors. The scorecard reads 243/2 in favour of India A as they are already leading Bangladesh by 19 runs. None of the Bangladeshi bowlers were effective in the first session.

With less than 5 minutes to go for lunch, Panchal is continuing to bat. He might not come out to bat after lunch if he continues to bat till the end of first session.

At the end of 49 overs: India A 237/1 (Ishank Jaggi 13, Priyank Panchal 102)

100! Priyank Panchal’s great run with the bat continues. The Gujarat opener scores yet another century. He reached his century with a six over deep square-leg. It took just 142 balls with 11 fours and 1 six to reach the milestone. There are chances that he might retire out after the end of the 49th over. India A 237/2.

If the Bangladeshis bowl like this against India, nothing can stop the visitors from getting humiliated inside the first three days. 

At the end of 46 overs: India A 226/1 (Ishank Jaggi 13, Priyank Panchal 90)

India A take the lead in the 46th over as Priyank Panchal moves into the 90s. Ishank Jaggi is batting on 13. Brilliant batting display by the India A batters. 

200 up for India A. At the end of 40 overs, India A are 202/2 with Panchal batting on 80 and Jaggi yet to open his account. 

As we speak, Shreyas Iyer retires out after reaching the landmark. A sensational innings comes to an end. Ishank Jaggi is the new batsman in.

100! Iyer reaches his century off just 90 balls with 12 fours and 4 sixes. No words to describe this knock from Shreyas Iyer. He went berserk after reaching his fifty and scored the next 50 in just 34 balls. Well played, Iyer. He scored a boundary and a six to reach his century. 

At the end of 37 overs: India A 187/1 (Shreyas Iyer 90, Priyank Panchal 74)

Shreyas Iyer has taken the attack to the opposition and is just 10 runs short of a well-deserved century. Panchal is playing a supporting role with a valiant 78. Bangladesh’s lead is about to get below 30. The way these two are batting, India A might declare with a lead of 60 runs at lunch. 

At the end of 26 overs: India A 144/1 (Shreyas Iyer 64, Priyank Panchal 58)

India A are scoring their runs at a run rate of almost 6. Shreyas Iyer, who is batting on 64 off 68 balls, has shifted gears and has raced past Panchal. They are trailing Bangladesh by 80 runs. Can they wipe out the deficit by lunch?

Taskin Ahmed comes on to bowl.

Well played, Shreyas. The Mumbaikar reaches his fifty off just 56 balls and is looking dangerous. Rahim will want his bowlers to break this partnership soon.

Bangladesh’s lead is less than 100 now and Iyer has moved on to 49. 

Fifty! India  A opener  Priyank Panchal continues from where he left off in the Ranji Trophy as he reached his fifty off 79 balls early on day 2. His partner, Shreyas is nearing one as he is just 6 runs short of his fifty.

At the end of 26 overs: India A 114/1 (Shreyas Iyer 43, Priyank Panchal 49)

India A on the charge. Both the batsmen are looking to score runs quickly and are putting a lot of pressure on Bangladesh. Also, both are inching towards their respective fiftie as Panchal and Iyer are batting on 49 and 43 respectively. 

The overnight batsmen Priyank Panchal and Shreyas Iyer walk out to bat. Subhashis Roy to start the proceedings for Bangladesh. Here we go... 

Welcome to the Live coverage of day 2 the warm-up match between India A and Bangladesh which is being played in Secunderabad. India A start the day 133 runs adrift of the visitors with 9 wickets in hand. The batsmen will look to bat through the day and make the visitors pay for their dismal batting performance. 

That’s it. This will be the end of day 1 of the warm-up tie between India A and Bangladesh. India A end the day on top as their top-order took their team to 91/1, trailing Bangladesh by 113 runs. Ranji Trophy’s highest run-getter, Priyank Panchal is batting on 40 while Shreyas Iyer is unbeaten on 29. Skipper Abhinav Mukund was the only man to get dismissed when Subhashis Roy had him caught behind for 16. 

India A will look to pile on the runs on day 2 while the visitors will look to bat again. Earlier in the day, Bangladesh declared their innings with the scorecard reading 224/8. Mushfiqur Rahim and Soumya Sarkar scored fifties for the Tigers while Rajasthan’s Aniket Chaudhary was the pick of the Indian bowlers with figures of 4-26 in 12 overs.  

We will be back for the Live coverage of day 2 at 9 AM on February 6. Till then, this is Vignesh Ananthasubramian bidding Goodbye.

At the end of 21 overs: India A 91/1 (Shreyas Iyer 29, Priyank Panchal 40)

Both the batsmen looked cautious in the final passage of play on day 1 and remain unbeaten when the stumps were drawn. Panchal is just 10 runs away from his fifty and Shreyas is looking good and will hope to score big on day 2.  

At the end of 17 overs: India A 73/1 (Shreyas Iyer 21, Priyank Panchal 30)

Shreyas Iyer gets into his groove as he raced on to 21 off just 24 balls. On the other hand, Panchal looks settled and just moved into the 30s. Both these batsmen will look to bat out the day and cash in on day 2. 

At the end of 12 overs: India A 48/1 (Shreyas Iyer 4, Priyank Panchal 22)

Priyank Panchal looks solid in his brief stay at the crease and in the company of Shreyas Iyer, he will look to bat longer and pile on the runs. 

OUT! Subhashis Roy had Abhinav Mukund caught by Imrul Kayes for 16. Shreyas Iyer is the new batsman in.  

At the end of 5 overs: India A 27/0 (Abhinav Mukund 16, Priyank Panchal 7)

Indian openers are off to a decent start with skipper Mukund leading the way for the hosts. They will look to continue the good work and set a platform for other batsmen to cash in.

Priyank Panchal and Abhinav Mukund open the batting for India A. Shafiul Islam to start the proceedings for the Tigers. Here we go....

We will be back for the India A innings in few minutes’ time. 

As we speak, Mushfiqur Rahim has declared the innings with the scorecard reading 224/8. The skipper himself along with Soumya Sarkar scored fifties for the visitors while Aniket Chaudhary was the pick of the Indian bowlers with figures of 4-26 in 12 overs.  

At the end of 67 overs: Bangladesh 224/8 (Taijul Islam 4, Litton Das 23)

Litton Das and Taijul Islam are frustrating the India A bowlers are they are trying to delaying the inevitable. Abhinav Mukund will be itching to get back on the field with the bat in his hand on day 1 itself. But, as of now, Mukund will want his bowlers to clean up the tail as soon as possible. 

At the end of 61 overs: Bangladesh 206/8 (Taijul Islam 0, Litton Das 9)

This is exactly the kind of start India A would have wanted as they got 2 early wickets in the third session. Litton Das will look to take on the bowlers and score some quick runs. 

Mehdi Hasan lbw b Aniket Chaudhary 58

Gone! Two in two for Aniket as he dismissed Mehdi Hasan for a first ball duck. Taijul Islam is the new batsman.

Mushfiqur Rahim c Rishabh Pant b Aniket Chaudhary 58

Out! Aniket strikes early. He gets the all-important wicket of Mushfiqur Rahir as the Bangladesh skipper was caught behind for 58. Mehdi Hasan is the new man in.

We are underway for the third session at Secunderabad. Aniket Chaudhary will start the proceedings for India.

Catch you at the start of the third session, which will get underway at 1430 IST.

At the end of 58 overs: Bangladesh 196/6 (Mushfiqur Rahim 50, Litton Das 8)

It is very difficult to pick one team that dominated the post-lunch session as Bangladesh scored 104 runs for the loss of two wickets in it. Litton Das is batting on 8 while Rahim is looking solid on 50. India A will look to bundle out the visitors early in the third season while Rahim will look to propel his team to a decent total.  

Shahbaz Nadeem comes back into the attack in place of Chama Milind. 

Mushfiqur Rahim is playing a captain’s knock here and has reached his fifty off 91 balls with the help of six fours and one six. Well played, Mushi. 

Sabbir Rahman lbw b Vijay Shankar 33

OUT! I just can’t believe this. Yet another batsman departs after I started praising him. Sabbir, who was batting well on 33, is trapped in front of the stumps by Vijay Shankar for 33. A much-needed wicket. Litton Das is the new batsman in. 

Vijay Shankar replaces Jayant Yadav, who went for a lot of runs in this spell. 

At the end of 53 overs: Bangladesh 184/5 (Mushfiqur Rahim 47, Sabbir Rahman 33)

Rishabh Pant takes over the wicketkeeping duties from his under-19 captain Ishan Kishan. At the same time, Rahim and Sabbir Rahman are going strong as they crossed their 50-run partnership for the sixth wicket. Rahim is inching closer to his fifty while Sabbir is batting on 33 and is looking set for a big one.

At the end of 46 overs: Bangladesh 170/5 (Mushfiqur Rahim 44, Sabbir Rahman 22)

A good passage of play for the visitors. Sabbir is looking dangerous as he raced to 22 off 44 deliveries. He scored just 6 runs off his first 35 balls. Can Bangladesh build on this and post a good total on the board?

It’s a double change from Mukund. Jayant Yadav replaces Kuldeep Yadav. Two boundaries were conceded in Milind’s comeback over. 

At the end of 46 overs: Bangladesh 153/5 (Mushfiqur Rahim 43, Sabbir Rahman 6)

Rahim is looking solid on 43 and is threatening to take the game away from India A. Sabbir Rahman is slowly getting into his groove. Abhinav Mukund will want his bowlers to break this partnership. As I type, Chama Milind is brought back into the attack. Can they Hyderabadi give India A yet another breakthrough?

At the end of 40 overs: Bangladesh 131/5 (Sabbir Rahman 0, Mushfiqur Rahim 23)

Both Rahim and Sabbir are looking to pull things back on track. They need to build a big partnership to bail their team out of trouble. Sabbir looks cautious as he is yet to get off the mark after facing 16 balls. Rahim has scored 27 runs off 49 balls with 4 boundaries and looks comfortable against the spinners. 

At the end of 33 overs: Bangladesh 113/5 (Sabbir Rahman 0, Mushfiqur Rahim 9)

Bangladesh were off to a flying start in the second session before Kuldeep Yadav struck. The partnership between Sabbir and Rahim will be key for the Bangladeshis now. 

Mahmudullah c Priyank Panchal b Kuldeep Yadav 23

Gone. Oh My God!! Chinaman Kuldeep Yadav strikes to send back Mahmudullah for 23. The right-hander tried to defend the ball and ended up giving the short-leg fielder Priyank Panchal an easy catch. Big-hitting Sabbir Rahman comes in to bat. 

Mahmudullah and Mushfiqur Rahim get their team off to a good start in the second session. They are finding it easy to get going against the spinners. India should look to break this partnership soon. 

The second session is about to get underway. It looks like chinaman Kuldeep Yadav will start the proceedings. Here we go.

At the end of the first session: Bangladesh 92/4 (Mahmudullah 11, Mushfiqur Rahim 0)

That’s it for the session. Bangladesh scored 92 runs for the loss of 4 wickets in the first session of the day 1 of the warm-up match against India A. Aniket Chaudhary took two wickets for the hosts while Chama Milind and Shahbaz Nadeem chipped in with a wicket each. Soumya Sarkar batted well for his 52 before he was dismissed at the stroke of lunch. Catch you all at the start of the second session which is just 30 minutes away.

Soumya Sarkar lbw b Shahbaz Nadeem 52

Big wicket! India A strike again and this time, it was Soumya Sarkar, who was trapped plumb in front off the bowling of Nadeem for 52. Skipper Mushfiqur Rahim walks in to replace Soumya. The two maiden overs have resulted in a wicket. Can India A seek in one more before the lunch?

At the end of 23 overs: Bangladesh 87/3 Mahmudullah 8, Soumya Sarkar 50)

Change in bowling as Aniket Chaudhary is taken out of the attack and the leading wicket-taker in the 2016-17 Ranji Trophy, Shahbaz Nadeem replaces him. Aniket’s spell reads 7-1-14-2. Nadeem starts off with a maiden and Jayant backs it up by bowling another maiden. Brilliant stuff by the India A spinners. A wicket now will put a lot of pressure on the visitors. 

Soumya Sarkar reaches his fifty off just 55 balls. He looks good for a century and Bangladesh will want him to carry on and get a big one. Well played, Soumya. 

Mominul Haque c Ishank Jaggi b Aniket Chaudhary 5

Oh ho ho ho! Jinxed again. Mominul Haque was caught by Ishank Jaggi off the bowling of Aniket for 5. The Rajasthan pacer gets his second. Bangladesh are down to 81/3 with the new batsman, Mahmudullah getting ready to take strike. 

At the end of 17 overs: Bangladesh 72/2 (Mominul Haque 5, Soumya Sarkar 43)

Bangladesh batsmen have taken Vijay Shankar to the cleaners as the all-rounder has conceded 21 runs in his 2 overs. Jayant Yadav replaces him and bowls a maiden. Bangladesh are getting back into the game. India A need a wicket here. 

Vijay Shankar concedes two boundaries in his first over. He needs to get his line and length right or he will go for plenty as he doesn’t generate much pace and it will be easier for the batsmen to hit him if he errs with the line and length.

At the end of 12 overs: Bangladesh 46/2 (Mominul Haque 1, Soumya Sarkar 23)

India A bowlers called the shots in the last 4 overs as they conceded just 6 runs in that period. Still, they would like to squeeze in a wicket or two before the teams go for lunch on day 1. Milind is given some rest after his spell of 6-2-10-1 and is replaced by Tamil Nadu all-rounder Vijay Shankar.

Tamim Iqbal b Aniket Chaudhary 13

Gone!!!!! Yet again, I jinxed it. Aniket castles Tamim Iqbal for 13 to reduced Bangladesh to 44/2. Mominul Haque is the new batsman.

At the end of 8 overs: Bangladesh 40/1 (Tamim Iqbal 13, Soumya Sarkar 18)

Soumya Sarkar has already scored 18 runs in just 14 balls and looks threatening. Abhinav Mukund will hope that his bowlers provide the breakthrough and send Sarkar back to the pavilion soon. A great start for the Tigers in spite of losing Kayes.

Bangladesh are off to a great start, thanks to Hardik Pandya’s spell. The Indian all-rounder has conceded 29 runs in his first three overs while Milind went for just 6 runs and took a wicket in his first three overs. There you go, Aniket Choudhary replaces Pandya.

It has been revealed that Shakib al Hasan, Taskin Ahmed and Kamrul Islam won't be a part of the Bangladesh squad while Subhashis Roy and Abu Jahid won't bat for the visitors.

Imrul Kayes c Hardik Pandya b Chama Milind 4

OUT! As we speak, Bangladesh lose their first wicket. Imrul Kayes departs for 4 as he tried to pull Milind and ended up giving Hardik Pandya a simple catch at fine-leg. Soumya Sarkar walks out to bat. Bangladesh are 22/1 after 4.4 overs

At the end of 4 overs: Bangladesh 22/0 (Tamim Iqbal 13, Imrul Kayes 4)

The wicket looks good to bat on and the Bangladeshis will look to score at least 350 by the end of the day’s play so that they can give their bowlers some time to get used to the conditions.  

Both the openers open their account with a boundary and Hardik bowled a wide that gave the visitors five extra runs. Bangladesh are 13/0 after the first two overs.

At the end of first over, Bangladesh are 4 without loss and all-rounder Hardik Pandya will open the bowling alongside Milind for India A

Ishan Kishan will keep wickets for India A. Tamim Iqbal and Imrul Kayes open the batting for Bangladesh while Chama Milind opens the bowling for India A. Here we go...


India A (11 batting, 11 fielding): Abhinav Mukund (capt), Priyank Panchal, Shreyas Iyer, Ishank Jaggi, Rishabh Pant, Ishan Kishan, Vijay Shankar, Hardik Pandya, Shahbaz Nadeem, Jayant Yadav, Kuldeep Yadav, Aniket Choudhary, Chama Milind, Nitin Saini.

Bangladesh Squad (11 batting, 11 fielding): Mushfiqur Rahim (capt & wk), Tamim Iqbal, Sabbir Rahman, Mahmudullah, Mehedi Hasan, Taijul Islam, Soumya Sarkar, Subashis Roy, Imrul Kayes, Liton Das, Mominul Haque, Shafiul Islam.

All the members of the squad are eligible to play with a maximum of 11 batsmen and 11 fielders are allowed take part in the match. This gives an indication that the warm-up match won’t be considered as a first-class game.

Welcome to the Live coverage of the first warm-up match between India A and Bangladesh at Secunderabad. The toss just took place and Bangladesh skipper Mushfiqur Rahim elected to bat first after winning the toss.  

*The Live coverage will start at 9 AM on February 5.

After a disappointing tour of New Zealand, the Bangladesh cricket team is set to take on India in a one-off Test match at Hyderabad from February 9. This match will go down in the history books as Bangladesh are touring their western neighbours to play a Test match for the first time since getting the Test status in 2000.

The Mushfiqur Rahim-led team has requested a practice match and got what they wanted as the touring team will take on India A in a 2-day warm-up tie at Secunderabad from February 5. The national selectors led by MSK Prasad have announced a strong 14-member squad that features the members of the Indian squad to take on Bangladesh, Jayant Yadav, Hardik Pandya and Abhinav Mukund.

The trio will look to put on a good show as this match acts as an audition for the fringe players to seal their place in the squad. Apart from these three, the squad also features the likes of Shahbaz Nadeem, Priyank Panchal, Rishabh Pant, Ishan Kishan, Kuldeep Yadav etc. as these players were rewarded for their brilliant performances in the Ranji Trophy. 

Bangladesh, on the other hand, will look to get used to the conditions as they are set to face a stern test against the world no.1 Test team in few days’ time. Bangladesh will hope that their batsmen will get some much-needed practice against the decent bunch of India A spinners, Shahbaz Nadeem, Kuldeep Yadav and Jayant Yadav.
