India vs Bangladesh: 'Second Innings Shami' sizzles as India win first Test by an innings and 130 runs
India dominate Day 3 of the Indore Test to clinch the match and go 1-0 up in the series
Indore: Mohammed Shami produced the goods once again the second innings as hosts India bowled out Bangladesh for 213 to record an innings and 130-run victory in the first Test on Saturday.
India declared their first innings at 493 for 6, riding on the double-century scored by opener Mayank Agarwal, after bowling out Bangladesh for 150 in the visitor's first essay. The visitors didn't fare better in the second innings either and bundled out for just 213 runs. The victory helped India take a 1-0 lead in the Test Series.
The victory was India's fourth win on the trot and will help consolidate their position as ICC's best-ranked Test cricket side. There were other important milestones achieved on the day with Virat Kohli surpassing MS Dhoni's record of most number of innings victories as captain. Dhoni had nine during his tenure as India's captain.
Mushfiqur Rahim battled the Indian bowlers and conditions fairly well but the Bangladeshi batsman ran out of partners at the other end with Ravichandran Ashwin also chipping in with three important wickets. The second Test match of the two-Test series will be played at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata.
Bangladesh: 150 and 213 in 69.2 overs (Mushfiqur Rahim 64 ; Mohammed Shami 4/31).
India 1st innings: 493 for 6 declared in 114 overs (Mayank Agarwal 243, Ajinkya Rahane 86, Cheteshwar Pujara 54; Abu Jayed 4/108).
