Islamabad crashed out without reaching the knockout stages for the 1st time.
India cruised to their sixth consecutive Test win in style, bundling Bangladesh out for 213 for an innings-and-130-run win in Indore. With the win, India took a 1-0 lead in the 2 match series with the final match, which is the first Day/Night test on Indian soil set to take place from 22nd November at the Eden Gardens. After India declared on 493/6 right at the start of the day, Bangladesh were forced on their back foot from the start itself. Wickets kept falling left, right and center with only Mushfiqur Rahim (64) providing some kind of hope at Tea when they were on 191/6 with Rahim forming a partnership with Mehidy Hasan (38). After building out Bangladesh for 150 runs in the first innings, Mayank’s 243 run masterclass set a platform for India to win the innings. Bangladesh showed a little more fight but that was not good enough to avoid an innings defeat. In the second innings, Bangladesh managed to score 213 runs.
Riding on one of the most hostile fast bowling performances in recent times, India thrashed Bangladesh by an innings and 130 runs inside three days in the first test. In another fabulous fast bowling performance without injured pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah, the pace trio Ishant Sharma, Umesh Yadav, and Mohammed Shami shared 14 Bangladeshi wickets while two spinners R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja took five wickets. Mohammed Shami registered his third career-best 4-31, and Ravichandran Ashwin ended with figures of 3/42. After the match, India’s most successful bowling coach Bharat Arun said "I think at present we are the no. 1 team in the world. Getting there is difficult, staying there is even more difficult. I think to do that over a period of three years, you need to stay constantly hungry," At the post-match presentation, Kohli said, Indian fast bowlers are on top of their game, when they bowl, it looks like any pitch is a good pitch.
