First Test First Day

India Cricket Live Ace leg spinner Anil Kumble today created history by surpassing Kapil Dev's decade-old record of 434 wickets to become the highest wicket-taker for India in Test cricket. The veteran spinner, who had started his Test career against England in Manchester in 1990, also has the distinction of being only the second bowler in Test history after Jim Laker of England to take all 10 wickets in an innings. He had achieved this remarkable feat against Pakistan in Delhi in 1998-99.
After the first session was lost to rain, Irfan Pathan took five wickets to reduce the hosts to 106-7 before Mohammad Ashraful dug in. Ashraful ended unbeaten on 60, having hit six fours and faced 135 balls. Kumble had a chance of a hat-trick after removing Tapash Baisya via a catch at first slip but Mashrafe Mortaza safely defended the fifth ball of his 12th over. But a run out ended the innings not long afterwards. In Picture: Irfan Pathan was in destructive mood on Friday at the Bangabandhu. IK Pathan had figures of 16 overs 5 maidens 45 runs 5 wickets.

First Test Second Day

India Cricket Live Tendulkar equalled Gavaskar's landmark of 34 centuries with his 159 against Bangladesh, which the great man witnessed from the commentary box. "I said to him my expectations are higher and I want not 40 but 50 Test hundreds from him," Gavaskar said.
The 31-year-old's memorable moment came just before tea on the second day when he took a single to mid-on off paceman Tapash Baisya to reach the three-figure mark and equal compatriot Sunil Gavaskar's record.
He is the fifth-highest scorer in Test cricket with over 9,700 runs in 119 matches, behind only Australians Allan Border and Steve Waugh, Gavaskar and Lara, who have completed 10,000 runs. It was a century with a difference in that it came just when Tendulkar had been going through one of the leanest phases since he made his Test debut aged 16 against Pakistan in 1989. Tendulkar failed to reach even double-figures in seven of his last 10 Test innings -- something unthinkable for a batsman who had earned international fame with his aggressiveness and consistency.
India lost three wickets in the morning session. The first wicket fell when Virender Sehwag was trapped leg before wicket by Tapash Baisya for 13. Rahul Dravid , who is playing in his 85th Test match on the trot, was bowled by Mashrafe Mortaza for a duck. At the fall of Dravid's wicket, India were 24 for two. When Gautam Gambhir was run out for 35, India were reduced to 68 for three. At lunch, India were 102 for three.
At stumps, Tendulkar was unbeaten on 159. Anil Kumble, who came at the fall of the seventh wicket, was yet to score. India have now taken a first innings lead of 164 runs over the hosts who made 184 on Friday. In Picture: Sachin Tendulkar added another feather to his glittering cap by equalling compatriot Sunil Gavaskar's world record of 34 Test centuries.

First Test Third Day

India Cricket Live Sachin Tendulkar cracked a masterful unbeaten 248 as India were all out for 526 in reply to Bangladesh's paltry first innings 184 by lunch on the third day of the first Test on Sunday. Tendulkar, who had equalled Sunil Gavaskar's world record 34 Test centuries on Saturday, smashed 33 boundaries to give India a 342-run lead, putting them in a position to force an innings win. He shared a 133-run stand with last-man Zaheer Khan, who cracked 75 (115 balls) for his maiden half-century. Khan's previous best was 46 against West Indies in Barbados in 2002. Zaheer hit the highest score by a number eleven batsman. He went past New Zealand's Richard Collinge's record of 68 not out against Pakistan in Auckland in 1972.
Sachin Tendulkar lost two partners in Anil Kumble (1) and Harbajhan Singh (8) in the morning. But he kept the runs flowing to raise his fourth Test double-century with a pulled four which also got India, overnight 348 for seven, past the 400-mark. Only Rahul Dravid , with five, has scored more 200s for India. The Indians were demolishing Bangladesh but they showed a penchant for going for individual records as they continued batting despite a huge lead. The wicket hadn't cracked but afforded turn and bounce, just right for Kumble and Harbhajan to get into the thick of things.
Bangladesh in return began disastrously. In the first over itself, Javed Omar was trapped leg before the wicket. The ball pitched just short of length, on the off stump and Omar, who was slow in reacting, gave Pathan his first victim of the day. (Four for 1). The Bangaldesh skipper hooked Pathan for four but the end was just round the corner. The next ball was another short one, and Bashar instinctively swung his bat and hit it straight to Zaheer at the square-leg boundary. (24 for 2). In the same over, Pathan produced yet another unplayable delivery to trap Rajin Saleh in front of the stumps. (24 for 3). In his fourth over Pathan rattled Mohammed Ashraful with a short ball that smashed into the visor of the batsman's helmet. Expecting another bouncer, when Pathan cleverly pitched the ball up and trapped the young Bangladeshi leg before wicket. The English umpire had now ruled seven batsmen out leg before wicket off the bowling of Pathan. The left-armer picked up his next wicket - that of Khaled Mashud - by producing an outgoing delivery that resulted in an easy catch to wicketkeeper Dinesh Karthik. (36 for 5).
Rana, who had hit a gritty 24 in the first innings, was again holding fort for Bangladesh. With a little help from Tapash Baisya, he saw the day through for the team. He scored his first fifty in Tests with a push to mid-on in the last over before bad light forced the players off the field. His 96-ball innings of patience and character was laced with eight boundaries. At close of day three, Bangladesh were 170 for eight with Manjural Islam Rana, 50, and Tapash Baisya, 17. The hosts still trail by 172 runs with two second innings wickets remaining. In Picture: Sachin Tendulkar batters own record with a personal best of 248no

First Test Fourth Day

India Cricket Live India took less than half an hour to wrap up victory on the fourth day of the first Test against Bangladesh after claiming the last two wickets needed. Left-arm paceman Irfan Pathan removed Tapash Baisya for 29 to finish with figures of 6-51, and 11-96 overall. Zaheer Khan claimed the final wicket when he had the diligent Manjural Islam Rana caught behind for 69.
The home side, 170-8 overnight, subsided for 202 to slump to defeat by an innings and 140 runs. Bangladesh were left with a daunting task after Sachin Tendulkar 's record unbeaten 248 helped India to a total of 526, a lead of 342. Only Nafis Iqbal (54) and Islam Rana offered any real resistance as the hosts were routed in double-quick time. In Picture: Pathan ran through the Bangladesh top order on Sunday and ended up with 11 wickets in the match
