India beat Bangladesh by an innings and 130 runs inside three days of the opening Test in Indore on Saturday.
Mushfiqur Rahim, who top-scored with 64 for Bangladesh in their second innings, was let down by the entire batting line-up as he received no support from the other end.
Pacer Mohammed Shami claimed four wickets as Bangladesh were bowled out for 213 in the final session of play. Ravichandran Ashwin and Umesh Yadav also pitched in, picking up three and two wickets respectively.
A blistering double ton from Mayank Agarwal and handy contributions from Ajinkya Rahane and Ravindra Jadeja powered the hosts to 493/6 overnight as they got a lead of 343 runs.
The second and final match of the series is India's first day-night Test at Kolkata's Eden Gardens, starting 22 November.
Meanwhile, Twitter exploded as the hosts outclassed the visitors in all departments of the game.
Here is how Twitter reacted to India's emphatic victory over the visitors:
Pacers enjoying their fine run
Harsha Bhogle’s post-match chat with Shami, Umesh & Ishant together has to be one of the nicest and most enjoyable interviews to watch in recent times. Absolutely brilliant. #INDvBAN

Best bowling attack
Simply how good this Indian team is....the bowling attack is, perhaps, the best Test bowling attack in the world. Across all kind of surfaces. Australia will come close. No other team will. #IndvBan #worldtestchampionship — Aakash Chopra (@cricketaakash) November 16, 2019
India comfortably on top of the ICC World Test Championship table
This is India’s sixth consecutive victory in Tests.
This is also India’s eighth consecutive victory at Indore in international cricket.#INDvBAN

Expect India's domination to continue in the pink-ball Test
If Bangladesh struggled so much at Indore in conditions they are familiar with I am afraid the Pink ball Test could be much shorter. This Indian pace attack at Eden Gardens will be super challenging for the inexperienced Bangladesh batting line up. #INDvBAN — Gaurav Sundararaman (@gaurav_sundar) November 16, 2019
King Kohli on top!
Virat Kohli has now won more Tests by innings margin than any other Indian captain - 10 now in 52 Tests. Dhoni had 9 such wins in 60 Tests. #INDvBAN

All hail Mayank Agarwal
Relentless is the word for this unit
India has improved in the last year and a half. This side is a better bowling unit than what we had seen in South Africa. In the first test South Africa made 280 plus after being 3 down. This unit is relentless and would not have allowed. That’s the diff in a year and a half.

Former Australia coach John Buchanan has given his two cents on the leadership style of Virat Kohli and how Team India will fare in his absence in the upcoming Border–Gavaskar Trophy 2020-21.
Looking back at the recently-concluded season, Wadia said the umpiring error to call a short-run when it wasn't, cost the team a playoff berth though it did not show the required consistency in the first year under captain and coach combine of Rahul and Kumble.
An in-form Hardik Pandya blasted 92 not out off 76 balls and Ravindra Jadeja's useful 66 off 50 took India to a healthy 302 for 5 in 50 overs after an inept show in the first 30 overs.
