Mayank Agarwal left shell-shocked by umpire Marais Erasmus’ rare howler

4 - Successive Tests in which India have had at least one batsman scoring a double-century. He left to 1 other standing ovation.

India were 493 for six at stumps in response to Bangladesh's 150 all out on Thursday.

Agarwal led the batting charge of India with career-best 243 off 330 balls while Ajinka Rahane (86), Cheteshwar Pujara (54) and Ravindra Jadeja (60 not out) all made proper contributions for the home side. When I am doing that I have to make sure that I make it big and put the team in the driver's seat or in such a position that they can not lose from there. He took his time and then settled in to register another fifty.

Left-hander Jadeja kept up the attack after a 123-run partnership with Agarwal for the fourth wicket.

Jadeja important along with his trademark sword dance when he reached a half of-century in 72 balls, while Yadav smashed three sixes in his 10-ball blitz.

Rahane became paceman Abu's fourth victim of the innings soon after the tea break.

Nonetheless Agarwal relentlessly hit the bowlers to the boundary after ending his 2nd 200-plus salvage in his eighth Test appearance since making his debut last 365 days in Melbourne.

The Karnataka batsman had scored a half-century on his Test debut in the Boxing Day Test against Australia past year and he said the feeling of contributing to the team has motivated him a lot.

Bangladesh, who were all out for just 150 runs in the first innings, began the day promisingly though as Jayed dismissed Pujara and Indian skipper Virat Kohli in successive overs on the morning session to give the indication of an intriguing contest.

That took the game away from Bangladesh.

"Knowing that you are batting well, it's now on to you to take the team ahead", the India opener emphasised.

But it was Kohli's wicket that briefly brought joy to Bangladesh after they successfully reviewed an lbw appeal rejected by the umpire. Replays indicated that the ball would have hit leg stump. With a lead of 153, the Indian batsmen will be looking to post a huge first-innings score before letting Bangladesh bat again.

Commenting on his journey in the national team, Agarwal said that he has had some really special moments so far and cherishes each one of them.

"Bangladesh's Test record isn't good". It has been happening for a long time. "It's the feeling that makes the team go out there and win tournaments".

"I need to keep in touch about these issues with the selectors and captain, and idea a system forward".
