Bangladesh started really well with a 124-run partnership for the first wicket. Starting Day 4 at 47/0, the hosts didn't lose any wickets in the opening session. However, a brilliant reflex catch by Rishabh Pant in the 47th over broke the partnership.

Just like the first inning, the Indian spinners picked up wickets. Axar Patel took three, while Ravi Ashwin and Kuldeep Yadav took one wicket each.

It came on the last ball of the 88th over when Axar Patel was bowling. He bowled a flighted delivery to the batter, which turned big, and Hasan missed the turn. Pant, who collected the ball quickly and dislodged bails with a flash of a second.

The batter tried hard to get his foot behind the line, but Pant was too good for him. The clip of this stumping went viral, and many fans called it MS Dhoni-style stumping.

Apart from the openers, not many middle order batters made any significant contributions. At the stumps of 272/6, skipper Shakib Al Hasan is unbeaten on 40 with three boundaries and two sixes, while the "Man of the Series" in ODIs, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, is playing at 9 runs. India will look to take the remaining four wickets early to win the game.
