Another enthralling day of Day-Night Test cricket at the iconic Eden Gardens. India captain Virat Kohli hit his 27th Test hundred in a record-breaking knock, then Ishant Sharma breathed fire, terrorising Bangladesh batsmen. He claimed four wickets to go with those five in the first innings. The visitors still trail by 89 runs and the chances of them making India bat again is very bleak. So, another innings' win on the cards for Kohli & Co. and another series sweep.
Bangladesh 106 all out in 30.3 overs and 152/6 in 32.3 overs (Mushfiqur Rahim batting 59, Mahmudullah retired hurt 39; Ishant Sharma 4/39, Umesh Yadav 2/40)
India 1st Innings: 347 for 9 in 89.4 overs (Virat Kohli 136; Al-Amin Hossain 3/85, Ebadat Hossain 3/91).
