It needed less than an hour for Team India to win the 1st match of the 2 match Test series against the hosts Bangladesh.
Bangladesh resumed their inning from their overnight score and looked to either take the match towards a draw or a win if possible, however they had only 4 wickets remaining.
But it didn’t go to plan for Bangladesh. Mohammed Siraj dismissed Mehidy Hasan early on. Kuldeep Yadav struck Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan and Ebadot Hossain in his 2 overs and Axar Patel got the last scalp to hand India a 188 runs win.
Meanwhile, Twitterati have been praising India captain KL Rahul for his decision to go for an early declaration and many even asking for him to be made permanent India captain.
