Axar moves India closer to victory in the first Test against Bangladesh

On the fourth day of the first Test at Chattogram on December 17, 2022, veteran Axar Patel increased the stakes with a triple strike just when it mattered as Indian bowlers made up for a lacklustre first session by reducing Bangladesh to 272 for 6, closing in on a significant victory.

Debutant Zakir Hasan (100 off 224 balls) showed tremendous fortitude in completing a patient hundred, but it was never going to be easy to win the Test match by batting out for nearly 180 overs over the course of two days while simultaneously attempting to chase down a 513-run goal.

On Sunday’s final day, Bangladesh must score another 241 runs, although captain Shakib Al Hasan (batting 40) might be more interested in postponing the inevitable.
