Kolkata, November 23: India will look to press on the advantage on Day 2 of the Day-Night Test against Bangladesh here at the Eden Gardens on Saturday (November 23). Skipper Virat Kohli, who made a fluent fifty, and his deputy Ajinkya Rahane are overnight batsmen and they will be eager to convert the starts into something more substantial.
For the record, Bangladesh were bowled out for 106 in their first innings after India pacers led by Ishant Sharma, who bagged a five-for, wrecked havoc with the Pink Ball. In reply, India were 174 for 3 at close for a lead of 68 runs and the home side will be eager to swell it further.
