Hyderabad: The Indian Pacers went all guns blazing on the Bangladeshi tail-enders as Bangladesh were bundled out for 195 in their second innings as India won the pink ball test by an innings and 46 runs, clinching the series 2-0.

Bangla Batsmen Mushfiqur Rahim and Ebadot Hossain walked in as the over-night Batsmen resumed the innings at 152/6.

Umesh Yadav didn't waste any time picking wickets as he sent the Bangladeshi tail, back to the pavilion with some quality fast bowling and equally well catches, caught by the fielders.

Although Mushfiqur Rahim looked good for his 74, he was soon sent back by Umesh Yadav who picked all the remaining wickets this afternoon with Mahmudullah unable to bat due to a hamstring injury. He ended up with figures of 5-53 as India won the second test and the series by an innings and 46 runs.

India also achieved a rare feat of winning their 4th consecutive test by a margin of an innings, something no other team has done so far in Test Cricket.

India also won their seventh consecutive test match in a row, which is now their longest streak in terms of winning test matches.

Ishant Sharma was adjudged the Man of the Match as well as the series for his bowling figures of 9-78 in both the innings combined and 12 wickets in the series.

With the series win against Bangladesh, India has now strengthened their grip in the points table of the World Test Championship with 7wins from 7 matches as they are still on top with 360 points.

The Indian team also thanked the crowd for turning up in such huge numbers as they had a walk around the Eden Gardens with the trophy.

India is now set to play a three-match ODI and T20 series against the west-indies beginning from December 6 at Hyderabad.
