Virat Kohli on Sunday became the first Indian skipper to win seven successive Test matches. He achieved the feat as India defeated Bangladesh by an innings and 46 runs on Day 3 of the Day-Night Test at Eden Gardens, Kolkata.
With this win in the second Test, Kohli surpassed MS Dhoni to record the most number of successive Test wins. Under Dhoni, India had registered sixth successive victories in the longest format of the game in 2013.
This pink-ball Test also helped India create another record as they became the first side ever to win four consecutive Tests by an innings.
With this win, India whitewashed Bangladesh 2-0 in the two-match series and consolidated their position at the top of ICC World Test Championship standings with 360 points from seven matches.
This was India's fifth consecutive Test series win and 12th home series win.
Resuming Day 3 at 152/6, Bangladesh lost their seventh wicket almost immediately as Umesh Yadav dismissed Ebadat Hossain for a duck.
Al-Amin Hossain next came out to bat and he along with Mushfiqur Rahim put up a brief 32-run stand, but their vigil at the crease was finally ended by Umesh Yadav as he sent back Mushfiqur (74) back to the pavilion in the 40th over.
The ninth wicket was taken by Yadav and it proved to be the final scalp as hamstrung Mahmudullah did not come out to bat. Bangladesh were bundled out for 193. Umesh picked up five wickets whereas Ishant scalped four wickets.
