Indian Batsmen’s performance: Shafiul Islam, the good bowler of Bangladesh made injured Rahul Dravid with his lower bouncer. He had to leave the ground after making 111 runs as his jaw got fractured by Shafiul’s lower bouncer. So Murali Vijay took his place to continue the game with the partnership of Sachin Tendulkar. Now it was the turn of Sachin Tendulkar to leave the ground and got out at 143 runs against the ball of the captain of Bangladesh, Shakib Al Hasan. The next Indian Batsman was Mahender Singh Dhoni and remained at the crease with his fabulous and unforgettable batting performance. It was India’s fourth wicket when Murali gone out with total scores of 30 runs. It was really surprising that at the place of Yuvraj Singh, Harbhajan Singh was sent to the ground to bat with Dhoni.

The very important wicket of Indian Captain MS Dhoni fell at the scores of 544 runs with his individual scores of 89 runs. With this wicket only, Indian team decided to sign off their innings with the lead of 311 scores.

Injuries of Indian Batsmen:
Our two Indian batsmen, Yuvraj Singh and Rahul Dravid got inured in test match series against Bangladesh. As Yuvraj Singh is suffering from the ligament tear on his left wrist and the report of the examination done in Apollo Hospital, Dhaka revealed the same. It is clear that he will not take part in the Test match further. It is also doubtful for him to participate in the home series against South Africa to be conducted next month, due to his ligament tear. But, VVS Laxman inspite of having a split in his left hand webbing is still with the team, so you never know that Yuvi can also be the part of the home series. Similarly, our one more important player, infact batsman- Rahul Dravid got injured in the field. He was ruled out while playing very superbly shots when he couldn’t understand the ball of Shahadat Hossain and ball fractured his zygomatic arch.
