Key takeaways from India's 2-0 Test series win against Bangladesh
With this victory, India sealed the two-match Test series 2-0 to maintain a 100% record in the ongoing ICC World Test Championship.
There were several key moments in the two-match series.
Here are the key takeaways.
How did the two-match Test series pan out?
India had earlier won the first Test at the Holkar Stadium in Indore by an innings and 130 runs.
Bangladesh scored 150 and 213 in their two innings. India had amassed 493/6 (declared).
At the Eden Gardens, Bangladesh managed 106 and 195.
India had declared at 347/9.
A dream series for the Indian pacers
This was a Test series that belonged to the Indian pacers.
In Indore, the pace united grabbed 14 wickets across two innings.
33 wickets in two Tests on Indian soil determines how far this pace attack has come.
Indian batsmen deliver the goods in a grand manner
The Indian cricket team batted just twice in the Test series.
Both times, the side had the luxury of declaring the innings.
Mayank and Virat Kohli notched impressive tons in Indore and Kolkata respectively.
One also needs to laud Ajinkya Rahane for playing a crucial role in getting two fifties.
His contribution in terms of partnership helped India.
Cheteshwar Pujara was solid as well.
Bangladesh have serious work to do in Test cricket
Bangladesh were way below the Test cricket standards.
In both Tests, the side was found wanting.
The batting, in particular, was a terrible show.
Nobody took any responsibility across the four innings.
Just one score of fifty-plus from a Bangladeshi batsman tells one the story of their journey in this series.
The management also got several calls wrong in terms of team selection.
