Ind vs Ban - 2nd Test, Kolkata, day 3

Umesh, Ishant Helps India to Another Innings Victory

Kolkata: India beat Bangladesh by an innings and 46 runs in the Day/Night Test to complete series sweep here on Sunday.

After skittling out Bangladesh for 103 on the first day of the second Test, India declared their first innings at 347 for nine.

Bangladesh were required to bat out of their skin in the second innings to save the match but they couldn't do so as India bowled out the visitors for 195 runs to register win in the historic match. Mahmudullah who retired hurt on Saturday didn't come out to bat.

India had earlier won the first Test by an innings and 130 runs in Indore.

India became the first team to win four consecutive Tests by an innings margin.

Brief scores:
India 347 for 9 dec (Kohli 136, Pujara 56, Rahane 51, Al-Amin 3-85, Ebadat 3-91) beat Bangladesh 106 (Ishant 5-22, Yadav 3-29) and 195 (Rahim 74, Umesh 5-53, Ishant 4-56) by an innings and 46 runs

Eden Gardens played the perfect host for the historic game with packed crowds on all three days bringing back memories of the times when Test cricket was more popular.

However, the lack of competition on the field was nowhere close to the hype surrounding the game.

The SG pink ball, which had not been tested in a competitive game before the big game, expectedly assisted India's lethal pace attack which took all the wickets on offer.

An evidence of their menacing form was the amount of concussion subs Bangladesh had to use after the batsmen received heavy blows.

While Ishant Sharma took a five-wicket haul in the first innings, Umesh Yadav did the same in the second.
