That's it from us at Firstpost Sports on our coverage of the one-off Test between India and Bangladesh in Hyderabad. As India skipper Virat Kohli hoped his side was able to give the spectators their ticket's worth, we certainly hope we were able to keep you updated with the match as it happened, whether you were following it in sitting at your desk in office, or travelling for that matter. 

On behalf of my team, I, Amit, sign off for now. We'll be back with our coverage on the four-Test series between India and Australia. Till then, goodbye!

Virat Kohli: Good wicket to bat on, and good toss to win. The plan was to get into good habits. We got a big series coming up, so the bowlers wanted to get into their rhythm. It did not offer much, but the bowlers found ways to get the batsmen out, which is a quality of our team. The guys stuck it out for the wickets. Ishant's second spell was good to see. If you have two world-class spinners in the side, you can tell your fast bowlers to come and attack. They fed off each other in this game, and everyone did their bit. It's been coming off nicely. Last year was something I didnt expect to happen, but it did. Im comfortable with where I am with my game stands at the moment, and I want to continue for as long as I can for the team. We're really keen to start the first Test at Pune (against Australia). The crowd was outstanding throughout the five days in this Test. That pushes the players as well. I hope the crowd got what they wanted.

Man of the Match is India skipper Virat Kohli for his double-century in the first innings! 

Feb 13, 2017 - 14:35 (IST)

Mushfiqur Rahim: I thought we created a lot of opportunities in the first innings, but we could not grab them. It's quite tough out there because the bowlers have a lot of varierty in them. It was a learning tour for our newcomers. Hopefully we'll learn a lot, and come up with good performance. Im really proud of our No 8 and 9 showing great character. Hopefully there a couple of matches coming up in Sri Lanka, and we'll take some positives from this. (On positives from this Test) We batted more than 100 overs in each innings, and Taijul bowled well in the first innings. But fielding was a disappointment.

Anil Kumble: This is a very good surface to bat on, and we had to bowl 200-plus overs to get 20 wickets. I expected it to break up a little more on the fourth day, but it held on. Especially when you have a long home season, you need to bowling to look after. I'm really pleased for Saha to get a hundred here. The most important thing was not worrying about the surface, and going out there and winning. Very satisfying in the last nine matches. Looking forwad to the Australia Test series. Very pleased with the top, middle and lower order, and every bowler who has played has done well. 

Feb 13, 2017 - 14:25 (IST)

Ishant: When the ball is reversing, I know how to make the most of it because I can move it both ways. We are No. 1 side, and we are playing against Bangladesh and we have to show that we are aggressive. I think the way Umesh and Bhuvi bowled, it was tremendous to see how they hit their lengths on a flat pitch. It was a pretty difficult wicket to bowl on, but if you are patient enough, you can get the rewards.

Feb 13, 2017 - 14:23 (IST)

Pujara: Yeah it's my fourth anniversary. The guys have finished the match early, so I'll go and meet my wife. I enjoy playing on this ground. My first hundred was against NZ, and I got a double-hundred against Australia. Recently, I've been missing out on 100s. It all started from the Duleep Trophy, as I wasn't getting the big scores before that. Once I scored the double-hundred (in Duleep), I got my confidence back. Im really happy how this season went.

Day 3 Report: Bangladesh face a big test of saving the one-off cricket Test as they reached 103 for three in their second innings after India set them a target of 459 on the penultimate day here on Sunday.

Middle-order batsmen Mahmudullah (9) and Shakib Al Hasan (21) were at the crease when umpires disloged the bails for the day which saw the visitors concede a 299-run lead after being bowled out for 288 in their first innings. India then scored rapidly and declared their second innings at 159 for four.

Chasing a mammoth 459, the visitors started the proceeding on a bad note as they lost their premier opening batsman Tamin Iqbal in the sixth over of the innings.

Iqbal, who only managed to score three runs in 11 balls, was dismissed by spinner Ravichandran Ashwin with 11 runs on the board.

The fall of wicket brought in Mominul Haque (27), who along with opener Soumya Sarkar (42) built a crucial 60-run second wicket partnership to stablise the innings.

Just when things seemed good for the visitors, left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja provided the much needed breakthrough as the left-arm spinner dismissed Sarkar in the 22nd over with scoreboard reading 71/2.

After three overs, Haque was also sent packing by Ashwin. Haque faced 63 balls and slammed three boundaries.

New batsmen Mahmudullah and Hasan then denied the Indian spin twins --Ashwin and Jadeja -- from making any further inroads.

Earlier in the day, Bangladesh could add only 66 runs to their overnight first innings score of 322 for six. The hosts declared their second innings for 159/4 at tea, setting a 459-run target.

Skipper Mushfiqur Rahim, who was not out on 81 on Saturday, went on to post his fifth century in Test cricket. He scored 127.

Off the 66 scored in the morning by Bangladesh, Mushfiqur Rahim alone scored 46.

Another overnight batsman, Mehedi Hasan Miraz was not able to add a run to his overnight score of 51 as he was bowled by seamer Bhuvneshawar Kumar in the first over of the day.

The fall of Miraz's wicket brought in lower-order batsman Taijul Islam (10), who was dismissed by pacer Umesh Yadav with scoreboard reading 339/8.

Taskin Ahmed and Rahim then stitched a crucial 39-run ninth-wicket partnership to get past 370-run mark.

In the 125th over, Ahmed was caught by Ajinkya Rahane at first slip off Ravindra Jadeja.

The last wicket could only add 10 runs to the total score as Mushfiqur, who played an excellent knock, was taken by Ashwin, who became the fastest bowler to claim 250 Test wickets.

Ashwin bowled a flat carrom ball down the leg and Rahim looked to sweep but got the glove which resulted in a simple catch to wicket-keeper Wriddhiman Saha, as Bangaldesh were bowled out for 388

For India, Yadav scalped three wickets while Ashwin and Jadeja took two wickets each.

Then, Indian openers Murali Vijay and K.L. Rahul failed to give the hosts the start they wanted. Both openers were dismissed in six overs with scoreboard reading 23.

Vijay (7), who slammed a brilliant 108-run knock in their first innings total of 687 for six declared, was the first to go as he was caught by wicketkeeper Mushfiqur Rahim off pacer Taskin Ahmed.

Rahul (10), who was struggling to find his rhythm was next to go. He too was taken by Ahmed.

Incoming batsmen Pujara (54 not out) and skipper Virat Kohli (38) then built a 67-run partnership before Kohli was caught at short mid-wicket by Mahmudullah off Shakib Al Hasan. Kohli's 40-ball knock was laced with two boundaries and one six.

The fall of Kohli's wicket brought in Ajinkya Rahane (28), who along with Pujara added 38 runs to get past 120-run mark.

Rahane was bowled by spinner Hasan in the 27th over to reduce the visitors 128 for 4. Jadeja then blasted a six and a four in his first three deliveries faced as India rushed to declare the innings.

Pujara and Jadeja (16 not out) were the batsmen who were at the crease when India declared their innings.
