On This Day in 2019, the Indian cricket team achieved a historic victory over Bangladesh in a Day-Night Test match. Led by Virat Kohli, the Indian team won the match by an innings and 46 runs, extending their winning streak to 12 consecutive home series victories.
The match, held at the iconic Eden Gardens in Kolkata, turned out to be the shortest Test ever played in India in terms of the number of balls bowled. The Indian bowlers, spearheaded by Ishant Sharma, demolished the Bangladesh lineup in the first innings, restricting them to a meager total of 106. Ishant claimed a magnificent five-wicket haul, while Umesh Yadav provided excellent support with three wickets.
In reply, Virat Kohli showcased his brilliance with the bat, scoring a magnificent century. His knock of 136 runs, which included 18 boundaries, propelled India to a commanding total of 347/9 (declared). Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane also contributed with half-centuries, further strengthening India’s position in the match.
The Indian bowlers continued their dominance in the second innings, reducing Bangladesh to 4/13 at one stage. Despite a valiant knock of 74 by Mushfiqur Rahim, Bangladesh succumbed to an innings defeat as they were bowled out for just 195. Umesh Yadav claimed five wickets in the second innings, while Ishant Sharma added four more to his tally. Ishant Sharma was rightfully awarded the Player of the Match for his exceptional bowling performance.
This victory not only marked India’s first-ever Day-Night Test win but also helped them extend their lead in the World Test Championship. With this win, India claimed 120 points from the two-match series against Bangladesh, further solidifying their position in the championship.
As we celebrate this historic Test victory today, let us remember the exceptional performance by the Indian team and their relentless pursuit of excellence in the game of cricket.
