Team India annihilated Bangladesh to win the iconic Day-Night Test match by an innings and 46 runs inside three days and claimed the two-match series 2-0 at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata on Sunday. With the win, India became the first side in Test history to register four consecutive victories by an innings.
By virtue of this win, Virat Kohli became the first captain to win four consecutive Test matches by an innings. The 2-0 win against Bangladesh was also India’s third consecutive clean sweep since the beginning of the ICC Test World Championship in August this year. India had defeated the West Indies 2-0 in an away series and demolished South Africa 3-0 at home.
Team India captain Virat Kohli thanked newly-appointed BCCI president Sourav Ganguly for cultivating a winning habit at the time of his captaincy. He said that at the post-match presentation.
Kohli said, “The bowling group now is fearless, and they believe in themselves playing against any batsman. We are reaping the rewards for all the hard work we put in the last 3-4 years.”
This was India’s first-ever day-night Test, and after making an impressive debut with the pink ball, the Indian skipper didn’t hesitate to call the crowd support “amazing”.
