India ended Day 3 with a score of 45/4 on the board, needing 100 more runs to win the game. 

Shubman Gill and Cheteshwar Pujara were both stumped off Mehidy Hasan Miraz's bowling. 

It was one of those rare occasions when two out of India's top 3 batters were out stumped. 

Only three times, two of the three top-order Indian batters have been out stumped - 1936, 1962 and 2022. 

Also, it rarely happens that an Indian No.3 batter has been out stumped. 

It was in 2012 when Pujara was last stumped in Test cricket before the Dhaka Test. 

In 2002, Rahul Dravid was out stumped while batting at the No.3 position.

Graeme Swann and Mehidy Hasan Miraz are the only two bowlers to dismiss Pujara in that fashion.
