NEW DELHI: Bangladesh fought valiantly on the fifth and final day of the Hyderabad Test but it wasn’t enough to stop one of the most successful home Test bowling pairs of Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja from leaving a telling impact. They combined to snuff out eight Bangladesh wickets, dismissing the visitors for 250 in their second innings and win the one-off Test by a comprehensive 208-run margin.
“India have now gone 20 matches without being beaten”India might have completely dominated Bangladesh in the one-off Test but the visitors have not shied away from showing some spark on the field every now and then.
Bangladesh, admittedly, are a much-improved Test team now and it has shown in their batting efforts. Meanwhile, the Tigers have always been game for a bit of on-field banter against their big brother. The India-Bangladesh animosity is well documented from Virender Sehwag questioning Bangladesh’s ability to take 20 wickets, Rubel Hossain sledging Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni running into Mustfizur Rahman.
