India A take command vs Bangladesh A

Bengaluru, Sep 27 (IANS) India A took command of their unofficial three-day game against Bangladesh A by scoring 161/1 in their first innings after dismissing the visitors for 228 on the opening day here on Sunday.

Leading the Indian charge was skipper Shikhar Dhawan who marked his return from an injury-induced break with a blistering unbeaten century (116 not out) as he dominated a first wicket stand of 153 with Abhinav Mukund (34).

Earlier, batting first, Bangladesh did well to recover from 6/4 to post 228, thanks in the main to an unbeaten century by Shabbir Rahman (122 not out) as he put on 132 runs for the sixth wicket with Shuvagata Hom (62) to rescue the side.

The visitors were rattled by some hostile bowing by paceman Varun Aaron (4/45) who made early inroads while off-spinner Jayant Yadav (4/28) sliced through the lower-order to put the home team on top.

Brief scores:
Bangladesh A (1st innings): 228 all out in 52.5 overs (Shabbir Rahman 122 not out, Nasir Hossain 32, Shuvagata Hom 62, Varun Aaron 4/45, Jayant Yadav 4/28) vs India A (1st innings): 161/1 in 33 overs (Shikhar Dhawan 116 not out, Abhinav Mukund 34).
