India clinched the first Test against Bangladesh with an emphatic 113-run victory to take a 1-0 lead in the two-match series, despite a rollicking century by wicketkeeper-batsman Mushfiqur Rahim that delayed the inevitable. The Indians, who needed to pick up eight wickets on the last day, took just about two sessions to wrap up the game and make amends for their disappointing batting show in the first innings.
Chasing an improbable 415-run victory target, the hosts resumed on 67/2 and rode on Rahim’s gutsy 101 and Tamim Iqbal’s gritty 52 before folding for 301 in 75.2 overs.
Amit Mishra (4/92), Ishant Sharma (3/48), and Zaheer Khan (2/90) struck at regular intervals to bowl out the hosts at the Zohur Ahmed Chowdhury stadium.
