Bangladesh needs only 2️⃣4️⃣1️⃣ runs & India needs 4️⃣ wickets. The game will continue on Day 5️⃣.
Can Axar take another 2 wickets to make it a game for him & his side or will it be Siraj & Umesh who will play the trick?#CricketTwitter #Cricket #TestCricket
Rahul Dravid can't select proper Playing-XI in T20 & ODI, can't read pitch and can't read situation in Test. His team selections & plannings are only for avoid to lose not for win.#INDvsBAN #BANvIND #KuldeepYadav pic.twitter.com/Xyq82HQUR4— Rajeev (@Rajeev_SGNR) December 17, 2022
