So, India make light work of Bangladesh on Day 3. The pacers quickly got rid of the remaining batsmen to clinch the first pink ball Test in India. Ishant Sharma was the standout player in the match as well as in the series. Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Shami also played their part with top class display. Virat Kohli also got a century in the Test, but it were the pacers who stole the limelight. 

The series is done and dusted and now the team will prepare for the ODIs and T20I series against West Indies before flying to New Zealand in new year.

Virat Kohli, India captain: The numbers have only gotten better. We did not think so many people are going to turn up today with game finishing quickly today. It sets the right kind of example. This is a first step in regard of 5 Test centres that I had spoken about earlier. I think it is similar to when we go and play in other countries. Belief can win you games. The way these guys are bowling, they can pick up wickets on any wickets. It is all about the mindset. These guys are  very hungry and at top of their game. We are now capitalising the opportunities. The idea is to establish yourself out in the middle. Test cricket is mental battle. It is not about hurting the batsmen but getting into their minds. We have learnt to give it back, it all started with Dada's team and we have taken it forward. We are reaping the rewards of last 3 to 4 years. These guys know what to do. to pick up 9 wickets each in a Test match in India is a great feat. 

14:14 (IST)

Ishant Sharma named Man of the Match and Series

"I'm just hitting the right areas and sticking to my plans. We developed that in the last game, we had chats with bowling coach and batting coach. When we started it didn't swing and last night it swung and we adjusted to the conditions very well."

14:13 (IST)

Mominul Haque, Bangladesh captain: It is a concern for us. Very disappointing result for us. We have to learn from the defeats. The pink ball did make a difference. It was a challenge. But if we take the challenge, we can play better in future matches

Ebadot bowled well, Rahim and Mahmudullah batted well, we have these positives from the Test series. 

14:05 (IST)

No wickets to spinners in this Test. Ishant took a total of nine wickets over two innings in Kolkata. Umesh Yadav grabs a five-wicket haul in the second innings.  

The pacers in this Indian bowling attack are just too good for Bangladesh. The visiting team tried to put up a fight but it was not enough against the mighty Indians. 

13:57 (IST)

Ravi Shastri, Team India head coach:

You feel proud as an Indian. The discipline and the hunger to win from this team stands out. They know there are no shortcuts. They need no motivation if the crowd is behind them. Bangladesh team still needs exposure. They also need some strength in their pace attack.

Bharat Arun, Team India bowling coach: 

Indian bowlers hunt as a pack. We are a very experienced bowling attack and the beauty of this attack is they adapt to the conditions really well.

13:55 (IST)

No point for Mahmudullah to come out here and it has taken 47 minutes for India to wrap things up on day 3. Also, history has been created as Virat Kohli's men register their fourth consecutive innings victory and seven back to back Test triumph.They now have 360 points in the World Test Championship. The next best is Australia, who have 116 points.

It's all over!

Al-Amin edges the ball to the keeper and it's a five-wicket haul for Umesh Yadav. Superb victory for India as they clinch the Test by an innings and 46 runs. Al-Amin c W Saha b U Yadav 21(20)

13:47 (IST)

After 41 overs,Bangladesh 195/8 ( Al-Amin Hossain 21 , Abu Jayed 2)

Ishant looks to get another five-wicket haul but fails in this over. Abu Jayed takes single and then Al-Amin hits a four. The final ball is a yorker but Al-Amin blocks and collects a single thanks to a bad throw from Jadeja. 

13:44 (IST)

Another edge and the balls runs away to the boundary behind the stumps. Four for Al-Amin.

13:42 (IST)

After 40 overs,Bangladesh 189/8 ( Al-Amin Hossain 16 , Abu Jayed 1)

A succesful over for India. Mushfiqur's brilliant knock comes to end. A bit reckless but he had no other option but to play big shots. Looks like Mahmudullah will not bat in this innings so India need just one more wicket to clinch the match and the series. 

13:40 (IST)

Al-Amin makes room and smashes the ball towards mid-off for a four. 

13:39 (IST)

RAHIM DEPARTS

Slower ball from Umesh and Rahim goes for a big shot. Doesn't time it that well and the ball goes high in the air and falls straight into covers fielders' hands. Rahim c Jadeja b U Yadav 74(96)

13:37 (IST)

After 39 overs,Bangladesh 184/7 ( Mushfiqur Rahim 74 , Al-Amin Hossain 12)

Ravindra Jadeja concedes nine runs in his first over of the match. After the two boundaries, Rahim tries a paddle sweep but fails to connect. Jadeja appeals for a LBW but the umpire says no and the Indian don't take the review. The replays show all three reds so a chance missed for India.

13:33 (IST)

One more. The trademark sweep from Rahim and it's successful one. 

13:32 (IST)

Wow! A reverse-hit from Rahim against Jadeja and the result is a four.

13:31 (IST)

After 38 overs,Bangladesh 175/7 ( Mushfiqur Rahim 66 , Al-Amin Hossain 12)

Al-Amin wants a single but Rahim sends him back. Could've been tight if Jadeja's throw from point was on target. After the four in the second ball, Ishant targets the stumps but Al-Amin does well play out rest of the deliveries.

13:30 (IST)

Yorker length from Ishant and Al-Amin gets the bottom part of the bat to the ball and it runs away for a four behind the stumps. 

13:29 (IST)

So as expected, Mushfiqur is running out of partners and the desperation is creeping in. It is clearly evident from his shot selections. A similar scenario happened in the second innings of the Indore Test as well and on that occasion he got out try to play an lofted shot.

13:27 (IST)

Al-Amin opens the face of the bat and guides the ball towards gully for a four. 

13:25 (IST)

After 37 overs,Bangladesh 167/7 ( Mushfiqur Rahim 66 , Al-Amin Hossain 4)

Umesh to Rahim. First two balls are short of length and Rahim blocks both the deliveries. The third one is also short but this time, there's width and Rahim pushes the ball to deep point but doesn't take the run. Goes for the pull in the fifth ball but doesn't get the bat to the ball. He connects the next short ball for a four.

13:24 (IST)

Short and on the leg-side by Umesh. Rahim pulls it towards the fine-leg for a boundary.

13:20 (IST)

After 36 overs,Bangladesh 163/7 ( Mushfiqur Rahim 62 , Al-Amin Hossain 4)

Ishant continues with his spell. He's sticking to good-length deliveries. Rahim takes a double after getting thick edge towards the point region. The next one is uppish and Rahim flicks the ball to mid-wicket for another double. He goes for a slog in the fifth ball but the bounce is too much and the batsman fails to connect. A single to end the over.

13:15 (IST)

After 35 overs,Bangladesh 160/7 ( Mushfiqur Rahim 59 , Al-Amin Hossain 4)

Al-Amin Hossain is the new batsman after Ebadot's wicket. He gets the bouncer treatment from Umesh. The fourth ball hits the helmet again and runs away to the boundary. As it is the norm these days, the physio is out and checks on the batsman. Al-Amin looks fine and continues. A four to end the over.  

13:14 (IST)

Pitched up and Al-Amin finds the gap on the leg-side for a four. 

13:10 (IST)

First wicket of the day!

Short from Umesh and Ebadot edges the ball to the slip cordon. The ball ricochets after hitting the handle of the bat. Ebadat Hossain c Kohli b U Yadav 0(4)

13:08 (IST)

After 34 overs,Bangladesh 152/6 ( Mushfiqur Rahim 59 , Ebadot Hossain 0)

Ishant to bowl the second over. The first ball to Rahim is wide of off-stump and the batsman leaves it alone. Ishant bowls beats the bat in the third ball. Pitched in good length and the ball generates decent bounce. For the fourth one, Rahim comes down the track for a big shot but he misses the ball completely. Rahim blocks the last two deliveries.  

13:02 (IST)

After 33 overs,Bangladesh 152/6 ( Mushfiqur Rahim 59 , Ebadot Hossain 0)

Umesh starts off with a ball on the leg-side to Ebadot. The next one is right on the stumps, a yorker length delivery which Ebadot blocks comfortably. The batsman plays and misses the final ball.

12:59 (IST)

So, the first session of Day 3 is upon us. 

Will Bangladesh wipe their 89 runs deficit and make India bat again? Indian bowlers only need four wickets to bowl Bangladesh out. 

Ebadot Hossain has come to bat along with Rahim, who is batting on 59. Umesh Yadav will finish his over.

12:45 (IST)

Meanwhile, BJ Watling and Marnus Labuschagne played similar kind of knocks for their team. The two players born fairly close together in one country, brought up in foreign lands and both developed the mental strength combined with technical skill to enable them to represent their adopted nations. Both scored big centuries on the same day, just a few hours travel apart. Read the full article here.

What are the chances?

11:30 (IST)

Welcome to Firstpost's Live blog for the third day's play of the second Test between India and Bangladesh.

Led by Mushfiqur Rahim's tenacity Bangladesh have managed to take their maiden Day/Night Test into third day, now they require 89 runs to make the home side bat again, but have only four wickets in hand.

It has been a familiar story as the Indian bowlers continue to wreak havoc with the team on the cusp of 12th consecutive home series win. How long will they take? Stay tune as we build up to the start of play.
 

India vs Bangladesh, 2nd Test at Kolkata, Day 3, Latest Updates: Al-Amin edges the ball to the keeper and it's a five-wicket haul for Umesh Yadav. Superb victory for India as they clinch the Test by an innings and 46 runs.

Second Test, Day 2 report: India captain Virat Kohli embellished the pink-ball Test with a sparkling century before his quick bowlers reduced Bangladesh to 152-6 in their second innings as the hosts closed on a 2-0 series sweep on day two of the second and final Test on Saturday.

After India declared their first innings on 347-9 in their maiden Day/Night Test, Bangladesh risked losing the match inside two days after slumping spectacularly to 14-4 in the seventh over.

But Mushfiqur Rahim and Mahmudullah, who made 39 before a hamstring injury forced him to retire hurt, batted resolutely to force a third day at Kolkata’s Eden Gardens.

Bangladesh, dismissed for 106 in the first innings, still trail their hosts by 89 runs.

Ishant Sharma, who claimed 5-22 in the first innings, was the wrecker-in-chief in the second as well, returning 4-39 with an impeccable display of seam bowling.

Mushfiqur will resume on 59 on Sunday, hoping to continue the fight though India look set to seal their 12th consecutive home series victory.

India’s top order batsman Cheteshwar Pujara was not surprised how his pace bowling team mates continued to torment Bangladesh.

“Our aim was very simple - to bowl to them in the right areas and try and make them play as many balls as possible,” said Pujara.

“We know the ball is going to swing and it was important to control the swing and be accurate with our line and length.”

Earlier, Kohli smashed a magnificent 136 and added 99 runs with Ajinkya Rahane who fell for a fluent 51.

The India captain cover-drove Ebadot Hossain to reach 99 and, with the crowd chanting his name, took two off spinner Taijul Islam to bring up his 27th Test century, and 20th as captain.

He removed his helmet to soak up the applause, then continued the celebrations shortly afterwards by hitting Abu Jayed for four consecutive boundaries.

Ebadot dismissed Kohli when Taijul moved from deep square leg and hurled himself into the air to take a stunning catch.

Kohli hit 18 fours in his 194-ball vigil, outlasting the entire Bangladesh team who had folded in 30.3 overs in their first innings.

Armed with the heavily-lacquered ball, Ishant then mowed down the top order to put Bangladesh on the mat.

His second-innings victims included Mominul Haque, who made a nightmarish debut as Bangladesh’s Test captain, being dismissed for a duck in both innings.

Mushfiqur and Mahmudullah, however, refused to throw in the towel, displaying stomach for the fight that was lacking among their team mates.

“We’re still 90-odd runs behind, tomorrow we’ll try to avoid an innings defeat and make them bat again,” Bangladesh quick Al-Amin Hossain said.

Bangladesh have had to call two concussion substitutes after Liton Das and Nayeem Hasan sustained nasty blows to the helmet in the first innings.
