Five-wicket hauls from Ishant Sharma and Umesh Yadav and a classy century from Virat Kohli powered India to a 2-0 series clean sweep as they beat Bangladesh by an innings and 46 runs in the historic day-night Test at Eden Gardens in Kolkata. This is the first time a team has recorded four consecutive wins by an innings or more. This is also India's seventh consecutive Test match win, their longest ever winning streak. Mushfiqur Rahim's fighting half-century was Bangladesh's only positive as India outplayed the visitors in all departments. In fact, the match looked like it was headed for a two-day finish until Mushfiqur and Mahmudullah put up a counter-attack. But Mahmudullah pulled a hamstring and Mushfiqur found himself fast running out of partners before India cleaned them up. (Scorecard)

Umesh Yadav to Mushfiqur Rahim, OUTAnd that may just be that for Bangladesh! Goes for the big inside-out shot, but ends up spooning a catch to Ravindra Jadeja at cover. Huge wicket for India. Mushfiqur departs after a fighting 74.With Mahmudullah not showing any signs of coming out, India just a wicket away from victory.

We are 10 minutes away from the startThis is a relatively easier period to bat in, at least according to Cheteshwar Pujara, and Mushfiqur Rahim will look to use the time to pile on as many runs as he can along with the Bangladesh tail.Mahmudullah, who also looked good before he had to retire hurt with a hamstring injury, may return to bat, but that is something we will find out only as the day goes on.

More excitement ahead of us?It's Day 3 of the historic day-night Test at the Eden Gardens and it has been all drama so far. The Indian pacers have hogged the limelight so far, punctuated by a fine Virat Kohli century. Two Bangladesh players have been substituted for concussion, both hit on the head by Shami bouncers. Two more suffered blows on the helmet but are carrying on. India were on a wicket-taking spree on Day 2 evening, making a two-day finish seem highly likely, but then Mushfiqur Rahim led the fightback with a defiant half-century.In a short span of time, we have seen a lot of action at break-neck speed. Fans at the Eden Gardens today will be hoping for more of the same. How long can Bangladesh fend off the Indian bowlers, all looking hungry for the wickets? Will Ishant Sharma, who never managed a 5-wicket haul in India in 12 years, complete his second 5-for in the match? We shall find out soon!
