At the close - India won by an innings and 130 runs



Those following cricket closely already knew before the beginning of day 3 of the first Test between India and Bangladesh at Indore that it was likely to be the last day of the Test match. Bangladesh had been bowled out for 150 runs in the first innings and with India having a lead of close to 400, it was highly unlikely for the Bangladeshi batsman to put a fight.

India declared at their overnight score of 493-6. Bangladesh lost both openers quickly with their defences being breached. Skipper Mominul Haque and Mohammad Mithun followed soon and the team was reduced to 44-4 in less than 15 overs.

Mahmudullah was the next batsman to be dismissed. Liton Das and Mushfiqur Rahim then showed some fight, taking the attack to the opposition but that was also short-lived with Ashwin dismissing Das for 35.



Mushfiqur Rahim's dismissal for a well-made 64 was the last nail in Bangladesh's coffin as the team was bowled out for 213 to lose by an innings and 130 runs.

Mohammed Shami was the standout bowler for India with 4 wickets from his 16 overs while conceding runs at less than two runs per over. It was unfortunate that he did not get a fifer. Ravichandran Ashwin and Umesh Yadav supported him well with three and two wickets respectively.

Bangladesh - Imrul Kayes, Shadman Islam, Mohammad Mithun, Mominul Haque(c), Mushfiqur Rahim, Mahmudullah, Liton Das(wk), Mehedy Hasan, Taijul Islam, Abu Jayed, Ebadat Hossain

India - Mayank Agarwal, Rohit Sharma, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli(c), Ajinkya Rahane, Ravindra Jadeja, Wriddhiman Saha(wk), Ravichandran Ashwin, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma
