India defeats Bangladesh in first test in 3 days

Indian pace trio Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Shami, and Ishant Sharma collectively denied any fight from Bangladeshi batsmen. All the three picking up 14 out of the 20 wickets. Surprisingly Ravindra Jadeja goes wicketless and Ravi Ashwin bags 5 wickets.

India declared their first innings at 493 which was the overnight score. Mayank Agarwal with his 243 outscored Bangladesh score in their both innings.

If there is any negative or areas to be improved for India is the number of catches dropped. It would have been done and dusted early had the Indian fielders held on to all their catches.

With this win, Kohli(10) now has the most number of innings wins for India after Dhoni who has 9 wins. Also, India stands top in the ICC Test championship table at a distance from other teams.

The second test of the series and the first day/night test going to be played with the pink ball in Kolkata is on focus as its new of its kind.
