Chittagong (Bangladesh) (AFP) - Left-arm spinner Taijul Islam struck twice for hosts Bangladesh as India reached 85-3 at lunch on the opening day of the first Test in Chittagong on Wednesday.
Taijul had Shubman Gill out for 20 before he trapped Virat Kohli leg-before for one.In between, KL Rahul dragged a Khaled Ahmed delivery onto his stumps after making 22.
At the break Cheteshwar Pujara was on 12 alongside an aggressive Rishabh Pant, who hit four fours and a six to be not-out 29.
India made a brisk start, reaching 41 runs in 13 overs after stand-in skipper Rahul won the toss and elected to bat first at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium.
Gill attempted a paddle sweep but could only manage a top edge which flew to Yasir Ali at leg slip.
After Rahul fell to Khaled, Taijul -- who looked the most threatening of the Bangladeshi bowlers -- got the big wicket of danger man Kohli.
Kohli reviewed the decision in vain as India were reduced to 48-3.
Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan passed a fitness test and was captaining the home side, who handed opening batsman Zakir Hasan a Test debut.
India have been hit by injuries with captain Rohit Sharma out for at least the first match and fast bowler Mohammed Shami and all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja playing no part in the series.
The two-match series forms part of the ICC World Test Championship.
India are fourth, having won six of their 12 matches.Bangladesh are in last place with eight defeats from 10 matches.
