All-round India beat Bangladesh by an innings and 130 runs in the Indore Test on Saturday. By the virtue of the victory, India took a 1-0 lead in the two-Test series.
The second Test, which is a day-night match, will be played at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata from November 22. At Tea, India closed in on an innings victory over Bangladesh despite an unbeaten half-century from Mushfiqur Rahim.

Mushfiqur and Liton Das then put on 63 runs for the sixth wicket before Ravichandran Ashwin broke the stand. Mushfiqur, who was dropped by Rohit Sharma at second slip off Shami on four, completed his 20th Test fifty.
