The Indian cricket team delivered their seventh straight Test win and fourth successive win by an innings as they beat Bangladesh in their maiden Day/Night Test and pink ball Test at Eden Gardens in Kolkata.

India won the landmark clash by an innings and 46 runs in the second of the two-match series to complete 2-0 series sweep. Umesh Yadav struck three times on Sunday, wrapping up the third day in less than an hour.

Having barely managed to avoid a defeat inside two days, Bangladesh resumed on 152/6, hoping to score another 89 runs to avoid a second successive innings defeat. But once Mushfiqur Rahim fell for 74, the highest by a Bangladesh batsman in the one-sided match, the game was effectively over for them.

Bangladesh, skittled out for 106 in the first innings, managed 195 in the second as India registered their 12th consecutive home series victory to consolidate their lead in the World Test Championship points table.

The cricket fraternity congratulated Virat Kohli and the boys for their ‘unbelievable domination’ as the Test series against Bangladesh came to an end. Here are some of the reactions:

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