The first Test match between India and Bangladesh is underway in Chittagong.

Bangladesh scored 272/6 at the close of Day 4 as India are just four wickets away from claiming the opening Test.

On the other hand Bangladesh need 241 runs on the last day to emerge victorious.

On a debut match for Bangladesh, Zakir Hasan put up an exceptional show with the bat.

Zakir smashed a scintillating century on his Test debut against India and achieved yet another milestone.

Zakir has now become the only player to score the most runs on a debut Test match for Bangladesh as opener.

Earlier Bangladesh's opener Javed Omar had this record against his name as he scored an unbeaten 85 on his debut against Zimbabwe in 2001.

Also, Zakir became the fourth Bangladeshi batsman to score a century on a debut Test match for Bangladesh.
