Umesh Yadav five-for completes India's demolition job

Umesh Yadav is delighted after picking up a wicket BCCI

India 347 for 9 dec (Kohli 136, Pujara 55, Rahane 51, Al-Amin 3-85, Ebadot 3-91) beat Bangladesh 106 (Ishant 5-22, Umesh 3-29) and 195 (Mushfiqur 74, Umesh 5-53, Ishant 4-56) by an innings and 46 runs

It took India about 47 minutes on the third day to become the first team in Test cricket to win four straight matches by an innings. At 968 balls, this was the shortest Test with an outright result in India, beating the 1028 balls against Afghanistan last year. The win took India's winning streak to their longest: seven. The most incredible statistic, though, was that this was India's first home Test win without a single wicket from a spinner. It was only their second such win overall, after Johannesburg in 2018.

The only man missing out on a great day for statistics was Ishant Sharma, who started the day one wicket short of registering his best match figures and only his second 10-wicket match haul. There were four wickets standing, including a hamstrung Mahmudullah. Umesh Yadav bolted past Ishant for the innings, taking three wickets, and Mahmudullah couldn't make it to bat again. That gave Umesh his second Test five-for.

The tail was never going to deny India, with the lower order backing away frequently against the unsettling pace of the fast bowlers. Overnight half-centurion Mushfiqur Rahim was going to be the only resistance, and it ended with a clever slower ball as he looked for quick runs.
