India's victory march in the ICC World Test Championship continued on Saturday with yet another convincing win. India thrashed Bangladesh by an innings and 130 runs in a lop-sided match which lasted less than three days at Indore.
Having bowled Bangladesh out for 150 in the first innings, India bundled them out for 213 in the second essay after declaring their first innings on their overnight score of 493 for six.
The victory gave India 60 points, and the Virat Kohli-led side have strengthened their position in the ICC World Test Championship table with 300 points in their kitty.
New Zealand and Sri Lanka, joint-second in the table, have 60 points each.
Here's the updated table:
1. India - 300 points (Six wins in six)
2. New Zealand - 60 points (One win, one defeat)
3. Sri Lanka - 60 points (One win, one defeat)
4. Australia - 56 points (Five wins, two defeats, one draw)
5. England - 56 points (Five wins, two defeats, one draw)
6. West Indies - 0 ( Two defeats)
7. South Africa - 0 (Three defeats)
