Mominul, Mushfiq go too, Tigers 140/6

Bangladesh reached 140 for six as Indian bowlers dented the revival efforts of Bangladesh skipper Mominul Haque and Mushfiqur Rahim the opening Test against India in Indore on Thursday.

Mominul Haque, Mahmudullah Riyad and Mushfiqur Rahim backed to the pavillion before the tigers reached the mark of 150-run for the team.

Liton Das, on 21, and Mehedy Hasan were batting at the crease before the tea break.

Tigers lost early three wickets as openers Imrul Kayes and Shadman Islam failed to prove their worth in the opening Test against India in Indore on Thursday.

Mohammad Mithun also followed the path of the openers after he scored 12 before departing the crease.

Indian pacers Umesh Yadav, Ishant Sharma and Mohammed Shami picked the wickets of Imrul Kayes, Shadman Islam and Mohammad Mithun respectively.

Bangladesh are now at 140 for 6 in their second session and have gone for the tea break after 54 overs.

Earlier in the morning, Mominul won the toss and elected to bat first against India. 

Bangladesh are missing their two premier cricketers Shakib Al Hasan and Tamim Iqbal for different reasons but that didn't stop them from beating India for the first time in T20Is at New Delhi about 10 days ago and there is no reason why they cannot do that in the Test series.

But things might be bit more difficult in the longest format, especially considering India's staggering record at home.
