In Pics: India's historic win at Eden Gardens against Bangladesh

India defeated Bangladesh by an innings and 46 runs in the second and final Test on Sunday to complete a 2-0 series sweep. Here's a look at the historic pink-ball Test. 

Former Man City defender Micah Richards rings the bell

The third day began with Micah Richards ringing the bell to mark the commencing of the third day of India-Bangladesh day-night Test match.

Micah Richards is a former professional footballer who represented England and Manchester City as a defender.


Umesh takes five as India thrash Bangladesh

Umesh Yadav's spell was key in demolishing the Bangladeshi side in the second innings as he took 5/53 in the second innings and a total of 8/82 in the test match.

Umesh Yadav was brought in to replace injured Jasprit Bumrah and after the Test series, it seems like he was able to fill in the void well.


Ishant Sharma grabs Player of the Match, Series award

Ishant Sharma won the Man of the Match after an excellent spell (9/78) that helped India demolish the Bangladeshi side. 

He even won the Man of the Series title after getting the joint highest wickets (12) along with Umesh Yadav. 


Virat Kohli and his tryst with breaking records

Virat Kohli becomes the first Indian captain to win seven successive Tests. By winning this test match, Kohli surpassed MS Dhoni's record.

Virat Kohli also crossed Alan Border's tally (32) and now stands fifth with 33 test wins to his name as the Indian skipper. The record is held by Graeme Smith with 53 wins.

Kohli also became the first Indian skipper to cross the 5,000 runs mark as the Indian skipper after a century against the Bangladeshi side. 


Shami's lethal bouncers

Mohammed Shami looked lethal with the pink ball. His bouncer caused a concussion to Liton Das, his spell (2/78) though was not a major wicket-taking one but it surely provided enough support to Ishant Sharma and Umesh Yadav's respective spells.



India's pace-trio sealed the match

India's bowling attack looked 'in pink' after dominating the Test series against Bangladesh. The lethal pace trio broke the most wickets in a home Test record after the recently concluded Test match in Kolkata.

In all, 19 wickets fell of Bangladesh and all were taken by the pacers. One batsman got retired hurt. 


Mushfiqur showed some resilience

Mushfiqur Rahim tried hard to give some fight to India in the second innings by scoring 74 runs.



Team India on a high

Kohli and company concluded their Test year with a clean sweep against the Bangla tigers who were unable to cope up with the class India presented by both bat and ball.

India now look forward to the Windies series.

Now, India will don white jersey against New Zealand in the upcoming year. 


No. 1 India extend winning record

This was the 12th successive home series victory for India.

India still top the World Test Championship (WTC) standings with 360 points.

Next to Indians are the Aussies with 116 points after beating Pakistan by an innings and 5 runs.
